I'm talking curling from a geometric standpoint, not curling as defined by hairstylists.

I think Joyce's longer hairstyle was okay with bangs because the rest of it was somewhat flat and, um, staid. (Credit to anyone who finds the picture I mean.) I am surprised at people's stubborn insistence that bangs ever make hair look better on purely an aesthetic level (other than hiding forehead/hairline problems).

I think it's safe for me to speak for others as well as myself. We're surprised at YOUR stubborn insistence that bangs are generally unattractive or worn only to hide a problem.

People wear different hair styles, different lengths, etc. because different styles work better on different people. For instance, a round face isn't a PROBLEM - it's just a facial shape. So a person with a round face will wear a style that suits the shape of their face. Same with foreheads or hairlines or eyes or cheekbones - people generally choose a hairstyle that fits their features and brings out the best in those features. This doesn't mean that they're HIDING a PROBLEM.

Also, lots of people - men and women - simply like bangs. They can be fun, playful, funky, sexy, adorable even. Just because you don't think so doesn't alter this reality at ALL. Wow.

Well, I don't blame you for thinking that, since it would make more sense in a way.

I mean, as far as "sense" can even be made of the original argument or ensuing discussion.

That isn't what I said. Many reasons for wearing bangs probably are unrelated to trying to look good to others. Also, I said they don't increase attraction, not that they necessarily lower attractiveness.

My argument could be destroyed by posting a picture of someone with a good upper third who nevertheless looks better with bangs (that aren't side-swept), all else being equal. Only problem is that it's unlikely there is such a picture.

You don't twist hair to braid it. Braiding hair does not require curly hair, nor does it make hair curly. So yes you are totally wrong about braids.

Yes, these were actresses and some time was spent doing their hair but thought I'd give some examples
of bangs.

She looks so cute. Saw current pictures of her on google - she went from short to long (still attractive with whatever cut
she has).
