Real Girls, Real Hair: 43 Awesome Bangs

Getting the perfect bang can be tricky. You’ve got to consider not only your hair texture, but also the shape of your face and your general styling routine. And just because bangs look great on Taylor Swift doesn’t mean you should start chopping. That’s why we’ve assembled this gallery of real girls with real bangs, so you can see what works on a variety of different faces before you go to town with a pair of scissors. Check out the myriad ways you can bang out above!

The next time a guy complains about wearing a condom, flash him this picture — a condom made in 1860. The reusable condom is one of the more esoteric items found at the Ohio Historical Society’s “Controversy” exhibition. The rather life-like condom was made from either sheep skin or sheep intestine, and was, like many condoms of the time, designed to be reused. So yeah, Trojans don’t look so bad now, do they?

Just A Picture Of Cee Lo Stroking A Kitty

Do you watch “The Voice”? If not, you should, not only because it is the best music competition show out there, but also so you can enjoy the eccentric behaviors of judges Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green. In addition to the weird overblown sexual tension-filled snipes between Christina and Adam, you will find Cee Lo, inexplicably stroking his white Persian cat. At first, we weren’t sure if the cat was real, but it seems that it is. It seems Cee Lo is really trying to make cat-sessories a thing. And hey, we can totally get behind that. 

A Sweetly Sexy Bra & Panty Set

I’m not a particularly girly-girl when it comes to underthings, and thongs scare the crap out of me. I prefer full coverage on my butt, thank you very much. But just because a girl wants her ass to be fully swathed in fabric, doesn’t mean she wants to forgo sexiness. That’s why I’m totally feeling this underwear set from Pins and Needles. Cute, but not too frilly, retro, but not to the point of looking costume-y, this floral bra and panty set feels totally fresh. [Bra, $24; Panty, $16, Urban Outfitters]

“We have conservative African-Americans who will not see certain films, will only see Tyler Perry but will not see Spike Lee. …I know a lot of African-American women that didn’t want to see ‘The Help’ because they had lived it as little girls and it was a circumstance that shouldn’t have been and it was so problematic for them. It brought back horrible memories and they couldn’t see it, nor will they read the book.”

Designer collection videos keep getting more and more elaborate (see this Proenza Schouler video for proof). This new campaign film for Louis Vuitton, made under the creative direction of Katie Grand, plays on the showgirl films of yore and features models doing synchronized fan dances. It’s a gorgeous video, but one note: it’s striking how much skinnier these models seem than the original fan girls. Where are their boobs and butts? [YouTube]
