Throwback Thursday~Bang Bang Bang

Bangs, bangs, bangs. It’s always about bangs. More bang for your buck. Bang, out they went. Bang/bangs have an unspoken implication of impact, powerful assertion, abruptness. Strength, direction. And bangs for hair is no exception!

Wiki Answers says the following:
“Bangs” are so-called because they are created by cutting the hair “bang- off,” abruptly and straight across the forehead. And finally, at the risk of offending our bang-coiffed readers, I must tell you that “bangs” as a young lady’s hairstyle almost certainly originated with the practice of cutting horses’ tails straight across, a style known to this day as a “bang-tail.”

Let’s take a look at some bangs from the past.


These gals have a special style all their own. Take a peek at what Wikipedia says about these lovely ladies and their darling front locks.
 Pin-up: Hairs are cut in a short “U” shape above the brows, which was made famous by Bettie Page and is now worn by many pin-up girls.
Well, regardless of when or how they started, why or who wears them, bangs are bangs. Here yesterday, here today, and surely to be here tomorrow and tomorrow. It may be a throwback of previous years but this is one hair idea that will continue to throw itself forward as well.
