FRINGE BENEFITS: Can anyone wear bangs? Most hairstylists agree that where there's a will, there's a way. "Your hairdresser needs to lok at the shape of your face and determine what type is best for you," says stylist Oscar Blandi. "They can really bring out your eyes and cheekbones. But you have to be careful. For example, if you have a round face, blunt bangs cut straight across the forehead can widen your cheeks and make you look like you have meatballs in your mouth."
Whether you wear bangs sleek and retrosweet like Katy Perry or roughed up a la Moshart, the right product is key. "Bangs look cool when they're slightly piecey," says Blandi, who likes to use an antifrizz serum and his Jasmine Oil Shine Spray. "But you want to keep them soft, not stiff, so whatever your product, you shouldn't use very much of it."
