Nicole Richie has got herself some seriously long bangs—I have to think those get into her line of vision and bother her eyes, no? I can feel it now, every single blink is labored because your eyelashes have to disentangle themselves from your hair! Bang-wearers, what’s too long? Granted, too-short bangs have their own ugly issues so I suppose to err on the side of long is the way to go, no? I’ll say, though, that for someone with long bangs Nicole is styling them smartly: As a (very) general rule of thumb, when your bangs reach your brows, you’ve got to get control of ‘em. If you’ve got coarse or wavy hair, you need a little pomade to weigh hair down. Fine-haired folk should use a dime-size amount of gel (look for one that’s got some alcohol in it) to shape and tame fly-aways. And once your bangs have reached the bridge of your nose (Nicole, pay attention!), apply a styling lotion and curl the fringe up and back with a round brush. It sounds like an ’80s styling technique, but gravity coupled with the weight of your bangs will help the hair fall into a pretty wave. How do you guys handle too-long bangs?
