I have side bangs, and uber-curly hair. My main problem is that if the hair artist cuts them just a bit too short, I have people coming up to me 3 X a day singing... "There was a little girl who had a little curl..." And then they touch my curly bangs.
So. how I mediate that is by bobby-pinning the hair back with a bit of mousse when I go to bed, so that when I wake up it has dried flat and looks fabulous. :-P
Trust me, I just got my hair cut a month ago, and I went crazy looking for hairstyles online. It seemed that so many of them were so outdated, or too hard to navigate. I liked this site because it was somewhat current, and if you scroll towards the end of the page you have the option to search by length, color, style, and sex. Helped me a lot
I love side swept bangs, and longer ones that fall over the eye brows (I used to have them when I was little, and they were a nuisance because they kept getting in my eyes, but I still find them cute )
