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.
PIN UP GIRL
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.
: 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.
AND THEN THERE’S BETTY PAIGE BANGS
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.
