If you've ever had bangs and grown them out, you'll know they can be kind of frustrating when they reach a certain length. But what about long fringes that are worn by choice, are they actually worth it?

What's great about them

Peekaboo bangs that skim the upper eyelashes - and eyeball on occasion - are gorgeous and sexy, and they totally change the way the rest of a haircut frames the face.

Lengthier bangs are easy to sweep to the side on days where you want to bare your forehead, and they're easy to style, too. All you need is a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to hold them in place, create a piecey finish, or add texture.

In general, there's plenty of room to move.

What's not so great

Long bangs start off long, so regular trims - like, once every two weeks regular - are essential if you want to be able to see/not get poked in the eye with your own hair.

When you first get them, you will probably have to train yourself not to keep pushing your bangs out of your eyes all the time. Touching your hair too much increases oil production and will make your hair look dirty, even if you just washed it that morning. Unfortunately, greasy bangs are harder to hide than greasy roots on top.

Are they worth it?

In a word, yes. If you really want to try the look, you'll put up with the minor irritations in order to achieve it. That said, you might want to try some clip-in bangs before you make the cut for real, just to be 100% sure it's the right move.
