Real Girls Get Bangs
Subject: Theresa Aniol, 24, student and restaurant hostess.
My hair is straight and healthy. I’ve never done something crazy with it. I could use some adventure.
The cut: Snipped blunt (apt for an easy-to-manage hair texture) to add chic to a simple style. 24 hours later: I was happy when I first saw my bangs, but didn’t completely fall for them until the following day. That evening my friends reassured that they suited me well. I can’t say I minded the attention. I’m always being told how young I look, but my bangs make me appear more mature. 7 days later: Love ’em! I look more put-together. To style, I blow-dry, divide the bangs into three sections and sort of curl them under as I straighten.
