The Big Bang

The bang is back; and in a very big way. A handful of celebrities such as Beyoncé, Rachel McAdams, Ivanka Trump and Nicole Kidman, introduced their new fringe at the Cannes Film Festival last, pegging 2012 as the year of the bang.

Mara Rooney, star of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, jumped into stardom with her gorgeous bold and thick fringe. In fact, a recent article in Vogue titled, ‘The Mara Rooney Effect,’ credited the actress with the widespread trend on runways in New York, London and Milan. Not bad for the heroine of the year.

It would be impossible to have a conversation about bangs without mentioning fringe queen, Zooey Deschanel. The quirky actress and singer has become synonymous with bangs. In fact, she recently signed an endorsement deal with Pantene because of her thick, luscious bangs. Seeing Dechanel without bangs is kind of like seeing a Christmas tree without ornaments. Deschanel has said that her bangs have their own personality.

Before you take the big plunge, consult with your hairstylist and see what bangs might go well with your hair type and length. Here are a few leading ladies that donned the face framing fringe this year.
