One Hot Hairstyle
Bangs have been making a comeback for a number of years now, and one style that is quickly gaining momentum are the baby bangs, also known as Bettie Page or Louise Brooks bangs.
A bit of a throwback to the bombshells of their namesake, this hipster fringe is a mark of a girl who’s sassy and sexy and not afraid to stand out in a crowd.
There are several variations on the basic Bettie bang, which has a bit of a dip in the center and a rounded appearance.
The Louise Brooks style bang marches short and straight across the middle of the forehead and lies very straight.
Try out the pointier "V” shaped bang a la Liza Minnelli in "Cabaret,” which dips down in the center of the forehead and comes to a sharp point.
Bettie bangs can be flattering with any number of hair styles, from one length long waves to a choppier layered shag.
Go traditional with a just above the chin bob or funk it up with a short spiky ‘do. Don’t be afraid to play with color, either.

This girl has pulled it all together with makeup and clothes for a knock out look.
Try a little Technicolor injection in the bangs only, or an off-center stripe to play up the geometric, face-framing shape.
Whatever style you’ve chosen, maintenance will play a big part into how long you keep your bangs looking hip.
Because the whole point is to keep ‘em short, you’ll need to commit to a regular trim approximately every two weeks.
