I'm not a fan of bangs for women. Chad, however, is a big bangs fan and he schooled me on the origin of the look.
People, bangs were invented in the 8th century by an Iraqi socialite nicknamed Ziryab or Blackbird!
It must be true, it says so right here in the Wikipedia.
He got kicked out of Baghdad for singing too good, so he moved to Spain.
Once there, he did NOT rest on his laurels though.
He put more strings on the oud. He opened up a chain of beauty parlors. He invented toothpaste. And, just to top it all off, he invented the three course meal.
He was the Marc Bolan of 8th century Andalucia!
