1. It will take some getting used to

Everyone has a hairstyle that they're comfortable with or a go-to look and anything relatively drastic will take some getting used to. Most people who decide that they hate their new bangs make that decision immediately after getting the big chop and are still in the adjustment period.

2. This is a high maintenance style

There is nothing like a low-maintenance fringe, they take a healthy amount of upkeep to look sleek and tidy. Whatever your hair type is and however you style them, they are a lot of work.

You have to style the, make sure they stay in position position and you have to go for regular style touch ups. If you're not happy with the time commitment a fringe requires then maybe this style is not for you or, a get a wig like Dimma, which is a great middle ground.

3. Bangs may force you to switch up your makeup style

No matter what style of fringe you’re wearing, bangs will significantly change your face. They provide a frame, which can be lovely and dramatic when paired with the right makeup.

It's best to stick to clean, simple makeup. If you wear heavy, overly-dramatic makeup, it will be simply too much. Remember, makeup should complement, not compete, with your hair.

If you wear glasses, ensure that you find glasses that work with your new fringe.

As you can see, bangs are not a small commitment but if you do them right, they can be a stunning new look.
