Bangs can change your look in a snap (or a snip? LOL). A fringe can look good on any face shape, and it will work with any hair texture. If you aren't convinced that this cut will work for you, we've got a slew of hairstyles with bangs to prod you to finally take the plunge. Scroll down and be inspired!

Did you know that full bangs look so good with a messy top knot?
A fringe and a top knot can emphasize your facial bone structure. Start by spritzing sea salt spray on your locks, avoiding the bangs. Then, tye your hair into a high ponytail and twist it into a knot. You may make it messier by taking a few random strands out of the looped hair.
