It's important to spice up your 'do. Add a little flair to your hair, ya know? And right now I am totally diggin' bangs. They are always fashionable, always on trend and always in season -- you just can't go wrong with the look.

Now, before you scoff at me, you need to accept that bangs are not a style fit for just your daughters. Even though the cut has a bad rep for looking too playful, innocent and childish, lately Hollywood style icons have been flaunting their fringe, only proving that this haute look is spot-on at any age.

I think a woman with bangs looks sexy, confident and bold -- and a definite do for every face shape. Fringe is in, folks!

Check out 5 bang cuts that keep your hair looking hot and stylish:

Do you have bangs? Would you get bangs?

    Here's the trick with bangs that are wispy: they can double as side bangs or full-on bangs, depending on how you feel. But the look is best if you let 'em loose as is. Resting just at your eyelashes, they're mysterious and sexy.

    Va va va vooom! There's no way anybody could forget this red hot look. Back in the era where TomKat reigned, Katie was definitely a hair trendsetter. What's to love about this look? Blunt bangs are so fashion forward and only the boldest ladies sport the look!

  • Side-Swept Bangs

    Side-swept bangs give the illusion that your forehead is longer than it actually is. So to all your teeny foreheaded folks, bangs can be yours, too! By tucking them to a side, it takes your hairline further back and makes your locks look thicker. Cha-ching!

  • Long Bangs

    Bangs are also notorious for minimizing forehead size -- and these longer frays do the job. If you've got long, straight locks, bangs help to break up the lengths and maintain your natural face shape.

    Ah, my fave. I love side bangs -- they go with the natural part of your hair and break up the angles and layers. Plus they're super easy to style. They're like the most non-committed version of bangs out there and pair well with straight or curly locks.
