Hair of (my) Season

This is my pick for the hair of the season, as worn by the lovely Karlie Kloss.

It has a shorter fringe than looks from earlier years, and terrific layering that begins just at the chin. I like how swingy this hair is, as well as how one can actually see from beneath the fringe (yes; I’ve had side-swept fringe and it drove me crazy).

I’m especially bemused that I’ve fallen for this look just two short months after I instructed my stylist to chop some six inches off my own locks. But that’s OK; it’s almost inevitable that one yearns for long when short, and vice versa.

Kind of '60s, right? I like it, thought short bangs for me have generally proved disappointing!

I love the American expression for fringe 'bangs' always makes me laugh as it sounds so violent for something so ethereal.

This is my favourite hair style I used to wear mine like this all the time - I should again.

That is my exact hair cut. I think it is a little too 'jeune fille' for someone my age, but the book "How Not To Look Old" said that bangs were essential...so now I have them.

Belle de Ville you are hilarious! I love bangs too, but they don't work on me. Wish they did though. Those are adorable.

I'm a yearner. This look is very tempting.

So where does "bangs" come from, anyway, all you etymologists? Historical and made-up responses are welcome.
