Hair | Bob with Bangs

Thursday, 9 April 2015



After weeks of indecisiveness I finally decided to cut bangs (a fringe) on my rpgshow unit. When I bought this wig my intention was always to have bangs but when I first cut the hair on the unit I hated it.

I only cut a little when I first got my wig which meant I had enough hair left at the front which I could sweep to the side or braid. I've been braiding the front a lot and as much as I love this look (see here), having to deal with trying to style my curly 'baby hairs' and putting concealer in my part to make it look realistic just wasn't for me. I didn't want to have any leave-out at all either as the whole point of me wearing a wig is to protect my own hair from everyday styling.

I wanted my bangs to be pretty textured and kind of wispy-looking so I relied on a lot of point-cutting (cutting upwards into the hair) to get this effect. I probably need to cut more off as it's still a little too long for me but I'm definitely happier with how the wig looks now. I actually cut my own hair in this exact style (quite) a few years ago when I was in my teens but I was so obsessed with my hair being perfectly straight I quickly got frustrated with having bangs. I'm excited to play with this wig and try different looks with the bangs though and I've pinned a few looks I want to try on my Pinterest Bobs board.


Have you ever tried bangs/a fringe?

  1. Bangs suit you. I tried them once years ago, never again. I just don't have the face for it, I can only dream. They look lovely on you.

    1. Thank you. To be honest I'm not sure if they really suit me either, but had the itch to try something different x

  2. Looks great on you! Ive never ever had bangs. I don't like to have my hair in my face. It irritates me but I guess it is a matter of getting used to it

    1. I used to chicken out too! Cutting bangs on a wig made it easier as I knew if I didn't like it I could just go back to my natural hair x

  5. I had bangs previously and loved it. Do you think you will cut them just above your eyebow?

    1. I'm only going to cut off a tiny bit so it's not in my eyes so much. I moved my wig back so the bangs fell above my eyebrows to see if I liked them a lot shorter and it just really didn't suit me x

  6. I use to love bangs but kind of fallen out of love with them (for me) because of acne prone skin. They look good on you.
