the big bang theory

I don't know if it's because of too many late night viewings of (500) Days of Summer, or if it's because of these recently released pictures from InStyle, but my desire to have choppy fantastic fringe has come back full force. Not to say I'm completely against a naked forehead, but I can deny that a girl with blunt bangs and painted eyes looks utterly gorgeous.
Here are some photos of girls from yesterday and today:

Penelope Tree, the epitome of blunt bangs and painted eyes


"Why yes, Pattie, your hair does look fab..."


Cher (avec Sonny) sporting heavy fringe in '68


The lovely Brigitte, with a healthy tan and even healthier bangs


Francoise Dorleac, the late sister of Catherine Deneuve, looking gorgeous with her eye-skimming trim


Style maven Susie Bubble, looking utterly precious with her fringe


Sienna Miller as Nikki in Alfie, rocking a haircut that spawned a million admirers


Jane Birkin, the possessor of the most enviable fringe in history


Serge Gainsbourg prodigy France Gall lives up to her innocent image with her blonde bangs


French model (and Johnny Depp baby mama) Vanessa Paradis looks like paradise with her chic blunt cut


Daisy Lowe, the rebel model who walks as many nightclub entrances as runways, rocks the bad girl essential: choppy, uneven fringe


The recently-turned brunette socialite/designer Nicole Richie (wearing her own Winter Kate dress) shows off her equally as stylish bangs


Frequent Vogue cover girl Jean Shrimpton looks the picture of elegance with chandelier earrings and perfectly trimmed fringe


Indie darling Zooey Deschanel is rarely ever seen without her brunette bangs


The always beautiful Marianne Faithfull captured in a candid shot from the mid-sixties, modeling her requisite forehead fringe


Kate Beckinsale, channeling the lovely Anna Karina in Roller Girl, sports long waves and blunt bangs

I was just about to do a post on bangs! Weird. I've had mine for about a year and a half and I'm thinking about growing them out but your post makes me reconsider.

I wear a bang. With a fivehead like mine, it's the only way to go, really. If it's good enough for Jenny and Pattie Boyd circa 1966, it's certainly good enough for me.
