If you have bangs, you're probably aware of just how much of a difference they can make to an entire hairstyle. Choosing the right cut, thickness and texture can be the difference between on-trend chic and scarecrow nightmare and one of the trickiest styles to pull off is, unsurprisingly, micro bangs. Depending on your face shape, forehead and natural hair texture, this can be a beauty dream come true. On the other hand, it can also make you look as if a toddler cropped your fringe with a pair of pinking shears...

As a trend
Long, sweeping bangs are a runway staple for pretty much every passing season. Whether wet-look, sleek, textured or teased, they help create a relaxed, effortless look. Bangs like these are something that translate easily from Fashion Week obsession to real life.
Micro bangs, too, are a popular choice on the catwalk. With sharper, edgier results, they're often used to bring a fresh, interesting feel to classic ensembles. Unlike longer bangs, however, these babies can often seem a little too 'out there' to rock on a daily basis.
One more thing...
Before you go ahead and make your choice, there is one pretty convincing reason why you should think twice. If you have the right face shape and a little confidence, micro bangs are super easy to wear for ANYONE with a manageable hair texture (naturally straight-ish, or anyone who doesn't mind styling the look into place), whether or not you're a supermodel. As long as your hairline doesn't contain any cow-licks, micro bangs would have no problem sitting pretty. Just avoid the look if you have an especially round face or short forehead.
