Just like every other hair trend in history, bangs come back in cycles, becoming the “it” look about twice a decade. And right now, it’s a bangs moment. The red carpet is jam-packed with face-framing fringe, on everyone from Emma Stone to Kerry Washington to Lea Michele. Even First Lady Michelle Obama has caught the fever.

Getting bangs can be scary (You’re chopping off HOW much?!), but they can also do so much for your face, beyond just showing how trendy you are. “Bangs have such an impact on the overall frame of one’s face,” says Rodney Cutler, hairstylist and owner of New York City’s Cutler Salon. “They can accentuate and highlight natural features that you want to bring to life or balance out imperfections.” By finding the right style to complement your specific facial structure, you can up the impact of your haircut and flaunt your most gorgeous features.
