Even when you have a short cut and thin bangs, styling them correctly will make them look gorgeous. For example, Miss Nene Leakes.

Carly Rae Jepsen has bangs here that are just too thick.  Her hair looks nice and shiny, but that’s more of a blanket than a fringe!

Lea has full coverage over her forehead but not too much hair, and it looks great.

Jennifer has fairly thick bangs, but they don’t look thick because they have movement.  They’re slightly swept to the side, and this makes them look light and flirty.

Thicker bangs look great on Taylor, especially with her lighter hair.  Just look at that shine!

Sandra’s bangs may look thick, but that’s just because of all the awesome volume she’s got going on! We think she should bring this look back.

Helena Bonham Carter has a carefree style, but we think this look makes her just a little too unpolished.

Bangs are a bold statement, one that can look incredible when done right. But be forewarned, there are times when even those with extremely expensive stylists get a not-so-great chop.

We've seen pop queen Britney Spears suffer from a choppy and uneven cut, and multi-award winner Claire Danes sport a too-long side bang, but there are plenty who have gotten it just right. Alexis Bledel keeps her bangs flirty and delicate, while Taylor Swift rocks a bolder, thicker fringe. Famous faces Kerry Washington and Michelle Obama have nailed the straight-across look, and we're swept away by Reese Witherspoon's side-swept locks.

Take a look through the gallery above to see some of the best (and we hate to say, worst) celebrity bangs.
