It seems like bangs are just one of those spontaneous life decisions you make post-breakup, after you binge-watch a K-drama, or when you see your favorite YouTuber do it. According to YouTuber-slash-hairstylist Brad Mondo, whatever your reason may be, it's important to include these three factors (other than they look SO good) in your decision-making before getting your face-framing chop.

Keep on scrolling for the important factors you have to take note of before booking that appointment:

  1. Face shape

  2. Attitude

    According to Brad, even though there are recommended bangs for each shape, if you have enough guts, you can pull off literally *any* hairstyle. If you want to go for micro bangs, go for it!

  3. Lifestyle

    According to Brad, time your haircut with the seasons. In his case, since he lives in New York, he recommends getting a fringe during the wintertime when it's not so hot. Since we live in the Philippines, have your bangs during the amihan season (when the weather is cool) rather than in summer This way, your bangs won't stick to your forehead due to the humidity.

    He also advises taking into account your lifestyle. Do you tend to exercise and work out a lot? How much time do you want to spend doing your hair in the morning? If you're the type of person who doesn't like fixing your tresses too much, bangs may not be a good idea as they are high-maintenance and require constant upkeep.
