From Cleopatra to Kate Moss, a journey through the most well-known bangs. Hair bangs can be a fantastic accessory. They can change your appearance immediately without much effort, or conceal a five-headed smile and even inform your ex-partner through Instagram that you’re totally over them. Hair bangs can also be great for putting lots of new and exciting possibilities together. If you’d like to learn more, you can refer to the term “bangs” in the google search. But, when it comes to putting on bangs, there’s a wide range of choices to pick from. Let us take an adventure through the history of “French face lifts”.

30 B.C.E: Not to commence in a negative manner, however the famous blunt bangs of Cleopatra aren’t a myth. In fact, she’d been wearing hair with tightly curls over hair that had been shaved during that epoch. The picture that is most popular of Cleopatra sporting bangs comes from the film Cleopatra which incorporated Cleopatra’s actress Claudette Colbert’s bangs that already exist naturally.

In the 1200s Hair of women was often hidden beneath caps or braided tightly in the medieval era, but what exactly are wimples other than cloth bangs ?

The 1800s Regency period is the time to introduce the forehead-framing, tightly curled tendrils into the forefront of fashion. They weren’t bangs but it was a beginning to the limping tendril look that was prevalent on proms during the mid-90s.

In the 1910s, the beginning of the century, we witnessed her poufy flirty locks of Gibson Girl get loose and cut in a parted style that resembled the ringlets brushed out cousin from the Regency.

The 1920s was when the bangs hairstyles began to get a boost. Women were active in trying all kinds of styles, including dark lipsticks, short dresses, cycling, and, as you could imagine, hair was going wild too. The most fashionable hairstyles of the period are the blunt, flappers like fringed haircuts of Louise Brooks, but Josephine Baker’s curly, slicked down hair fringe was a groundbreaking hairstyles with Swooped edges that had come to prominence in the 1930s and 1940s.

1940s: Hair was in general taken off the forehead during the 1940s, but it wasn’t always the case. The hair that was on the forehead that wasn’t desired was usually combed into pompadours and poufs or even squirted into “bumper bangs” that were worn over the forehead and were usually embellished with pins, hats, and even flowers. (If you were a teenager with an interest in the ukulele, you could have tried this kind of bang. ) Another alternative that was beautiful was a hairstyle that was reminiscent of Veronica Lake called a “peekaboo bang” that was a long, side-swept hair line which was brushed across the face in a particular area. It was extremely Jessica Rabbit, extremely inconvenient.

1950s: It was previously focused on which is the current trend named as baby hair: Audrey Hepburn with her shorter, wispy, and uncontrollable hair fringe in Roman Holiday; Natalie Wood’s innocent-looking pageboy styled with gamine hair as an ode to her earlier famed days, with her famous hairstyles, braids or bangs. The most famous hair bangs of those days are the ones of Bettie Page, who’s short round pinup hair fringe was the most iconic, and we are calling it the most powerful hair bangs ever cut. Page had a mother who was a hairdresser and often, she did the make-up and hair for photoshoots. She also cut her bangs in the beginning to minimize the appearance of the forehead which was too high, but it was also light to shine onto her face while taking pictures. Baby bangs are linked with the rebel grrrl style, “rockabillies,” as well as Beyonce’s first (only? ) fashion faux pas.

1960s: Hairstyles of the 1960s were surprisingly still thin, even though they were frequently sprinkled and got swept under beehives and other Aquanet-aided hairstyles. The decade’s conclusion was the time for cutting short pixies hairstyles and barely-there bangs. They were a popular reason why Frank Sinatra left Mia Farrow. (She has since denied the claims. She designed her own mini-fringe, as well as a crop hairstyle that was shorter earlier in the year. Sinatra liked the idea. )

1970s: Its fashion was very loose, long and flowing through the decades of 1970s and there were no exceptions in the hairstyles. Jane Birkin’s fine and delicate fringe was as famous as her Hermes bag that she inspired (and lately, she was rejected). Farrah Fawcett’s curly hair was the most extreme type of bangs that was popular throughout the 1980s, and thereafter was somewhat tough.

1980s: Bangs were bigger and more bizarre in the 80s. When brushed-out feathered hair bangs became the Statement Bang. Fringes would be hair sprayed up to become bizarre hair-hats or permed into the abyss as they were in Sarah Jessica Parker. Hair metal bands had men engaged in the trend of bangs in a fashion that was unimaginable. In the 80s, it is well known that Bon Jovi also had such a hair bang haircut.

1990s: were the ideal period for bizarre girl hair bangs. This includes the gothic V as well as round Spock options that are popular with vampire chicks and retro babes and vice versa. Uma Thurman was astonished to sport some blunt hair bangs which do drugs and danced and even nearly died in Pulp Fiction. Her sleek, curly-under hairstyles were the perfect match for curly hair of Drew Barrymore which was feminine enough. But, this was the year that brought us Rachel and her sidebang. In the period of layered hairstyles in the 90s, an edgy face framing hairstyle with bang like layers was needed, which resulted in the formal tendril situation that consisted of two ideal hair pieces, removed from a hairstyle that seemed slightly tense and it lies on either side of the face.

In the 2000s: The side bangs hair trend had its complete continuation of its shambolic dominance until Zooey Deschanel ignited a whole retro-bangs hairstyle that struck those with poetic goals particularly hard and they did not ever look back, transforming into an acronym for a specific kind of girl from the Indie who had vintage teacups as well as loved collage. In 2007, Kate Moss got a thick, blunt, straight-across hairstyle and they looked absolutely chic. It’s a fact that from 2008 to 2009, all women were thinking about getting hair bangs.

2010s: It’s been an amazing period for hair trends. Late-aughts hair bangs have ended. In the present moments, hair bangs are being trimmed and the hairstyle that is most popular is a middle-parting that is left after washing, and then twirled slightly that The Cut refers to as “rich female hair. ” It’s just as common as “lob” (“long bob”) that’s an angular shoulder-length haircut that typically includes hair bangs as well.. (Think Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and other tiny white stars. ) It’s a great time to begin thinking about bangs again. They’re so ubiquitous that they will never go out of fashion no matter what bizarre and weird item you pick to experiment. The solution to the problem of dirty, oily bangs is dry shampoo! It’s also possible to buy clip-in bangs that snap right into your hair. They can be removed at any time you’d like! It is the most enjoyable experience you could have while working with scissors in the bathroom, or sipping glasses of wine! With every bang from the past, it’s your choice to decide what kind women you’d love to become.
