Whenever I refer to beauty, my main point is that its primary component is the reaction it prompts. If a woman is single and wants to mingle with men, she darn well should try to have hair that men like.

Also, Tyra Banks doesn't need bangs. I don't know why - maybe lip size and narrow jaws - but black women seem to do the big-forehead look better than other women.
Actually, she should have hair that she likes and that she feels happy and comfortable with.

There is no universal hairstyle that all men will like so it's completely pointless to try and please them.

I've often wondered why Nicolle Kidman, with her very high forehead, doesn't wear bangs. An added bonus would be not having to take so much flack about the Botox-ed look she's famous for.

And IAGal is right, bangs are the easiest way for an older woman to take 10 years off her age. Much more flattering.

YOU think she looks better without bangs. However, YOU are not the end-all-be-all to what is attractive.

I think she looks much better with the bangs.

I think bangs look aweful in general but we all have different standards of beauty.

I think Zooey looks terrible with that hair.

There is no "hair that men like." For every guy you find that likes a particular hairstyle, a little digging will find twice as many who don't, and vice versa.

LOL You've been thinking about this for TWO Months? Wow...
So it's nice that you think you are the expert and only your opinion is the RIGHT one. Well, aren't you just special?
Funny.

I think that bangs are attractive on some women, but I prefer to be able to style my hair...I feel that bangs don't allow for much styling.

Fallacious argument - I never said there are universals. Rather, there are trends. One seems to be that men don't find bangs attractive, at least not prominent bangs and excluding women who can look good with almost any hairstyle.
