I'm doing this post partially to convince myself that my bangs will be more fun when they grow out but mostly because we all love big beautiful hair and pretty photos!

Brigitte Bardot–the most famous hair of all, perhaps

Jane Fonda looking bouncy and Barbie-ish

Marianne Faithful's tomboyish bangs are really cute because of how they fade into the rest of her hair so subtly.  

Monica Vitti's tousled side swept up-do…don't you wish you could do this to your hair..

 Pamela Courson of the Doors had adorable bangs

BB with a a teased bouffant that is tall even by her standards!

Very young Jane Fonda with polished bangs

One of my favorite modern adaptions of bangs–very jagged and youthful. This was from Yves Saint Laurent's fall 2006 show–the picture I brought to the hairdresser when I had mine cut!
