I'm thinking about getting the side swept bang look, but I have super thin hair

    I've been reading up on side swept bangs and think I'm a good candidate. Oval face, kinda big forehead so it'll cover up more of it, nice eyes so it'll emphasize that feature. BUT, I'm wondering if it'll work with thin hair.

    If you have side swept bangs, do you think it'll work on thin hair?

    I think it looks great on thin hair because it looks whispy. i. I have two friends that have this haircut with thin hair and it looks great!

    Thanks Kat! I just did a google search and a few people commented that it looks better on people with thin hair. SOOOO, I think I'll make the plunge and make an appointment.

    I just did an image search and this is the closest picture to what I would want. My hair is a little bit shorter than the girl's. My hair tends to be wavy on the bottom, so I plan to encourage those waves.

    I found a better picture of what I want when I was using my IPOD a long time ago. It's saved on there so I'll bring that one with me.

    I have the same hair style as the girl in the picture and my hair is that length, also. I am going back to bangs because I am so tired of pushing hair of of my eyes!

    When I have kids with that hair style, I hand them bobby pins when they walk in the room. They can't concentrate when they are constantly pushing their hair our of their face, and I like to be able to see their faces. That's a very popular look with girls and guys right now in high school. I think it looks cute and stylish and young, but it's not the right look for me. Teaching high school, I try to have hair styles that make me look older. The teachers who have that look at my school mostly keep the bangs pulled or clipped back during the day.

    I have worn my bangs like that for a year and really it looks fab. (However, I have the A line bob ~ longer in front then back, and stacked in the back. LONGER hair on me then shoulder length really looks thin.)

    I have this style and usually I do have trouble keeping it out of my eyes. Sometimes people look good with it and some people just look messy. It really depends.

    I have thin hair with side-swept bangs. I do have to keep on top of getting it trimmed so it doesn't get in my eyes. I did invest in some cute barrettes and pins for days when I don't feel like breaking out the iron.

    Practice with you hair before you get it cut to see how much you think you want for a bang. My old stylist butchered my hair (trims that turn into 4 inches gone, anyone??) and I'm still growing out a chunk of bangs.

    I like the side-swept bang look. It should look nice on you!

    I'll give it a shot. If it doesn't look right, then I'll just grow it out. I've had bangs off and on growing up. It seems like my hair has thinned a bit, so that's why I was worried.
