Hello fellow Planet Minecrafters!

Recently I have noticed that when I browse the internet or here for skins, the majority of girls skins have the same bangs - I think you know what I'm talking about. I'm talking about these:


"So?" - you ask, "What's your problem with it?!"
My view is that these bangs are cliché and overused. The majority of girl Minecrafters have these bangs on their skin, and it doesn't show their personality or style. The hair on a skin gives it character and dimension, and shows who you are.

"So now what? Without them, my skin doesn't look like a girl!" - you exclaim indignantly.

I have a solution in the form of a selection of different bang styles for you all, every one of them is created by me.

Here we have:

Slightly cropped side-bangs:

These are ideal for if you want your skin to have a slightly different hairstyle but still want to keep the side-bangs. They are slightly shorter and covers less of the face.

Grown-out bangs:

These bangs are one of my favourites and I used it for a while on my skin. They are similar to average side-bangs, but look more mature as though they've been grown out. They intrude less on the face and look as though they've been trained to the side with clip, portraying a more open personality to the skin, like they've pulled back their curtain to let you see the true them and take you into their trust. (This is just how I perceive it, although you might see different, so don't let me guide you!)

Curly parted bangs:

These bangs are perfect if you want your skin to not have actual bangs, but want the face to have shape and dimension. The bangs frame the face and the ends are curled for a neat finish ideal for a curly haired skin or anyone just wanting that finishing touch.

Straight double-sided bangs:

These bangs are similar to the last bangs but cover a bit more of the face and are straight, without the curled finish. They add shape to your skin's face without screaming "BANGS!" in other players' faces and making them leap backwards in alarm.

Front/full bangs:

With a youthful touch, this style of bangs will automatically make your skin look younger and more innocent. They are perfect for anime fans or people who love the full, front bangs style. One side of the bangs can be 'trimmed' in an editor to give them a slight lopsided look, or they can be kept as they are.

Longer front bangs:

Finally on my list are these. The style is similar to the previous with the idea of them being front bangs, but is longer for people who want less of a fringe and more of a full on pair of bangs.

Thank-you for reading and hope you found something you liked, even if you just got some inspiration from some of my designs or the idea to change the bangs on your skin. Obviously these bangs have only been shaded one way, and you can shade them however you want to personalise them and use whatever hair colour you wish. The example of the cliché bangs has been shaded differently to the rest, so that might give an unfair comparison, but I can always edit it later! :)

This is the second time I typed this thing out as my tab crashed, so I will likely edit it later, especially the descriptions of the first few bang styles.

All styles are originals by me and if you find them anywhere else, it was not my intention to copy anyone!

Have a great day!

Thanks so much! I used the front/full bangs and they fit perfectly with my Madeline skin. Thanks so much for this post! ^-^
I can't explain how happy I am that somebody has used one of the styles on a skin they've made! It's such a lovely skin, you're so talented! And the bangs suit it so well! I've given you a diamond and favourited it :)

I have to agree, this is one of the many reasons I started to use different bang styles in my own skins I've done just to change things up.
I'm glad it's not just me! :)

This is helpful. I have been using the cliché style, because anything else I tried usually looked a) like a boy, b) messy or c) inhuman, and I saw it on a few other skins.
I'm very glad you like it and happy that I helped you! :)

This blog is so true, and thanks for putting something like this out there, but the skins you make have that "cliché and overused" bang style. I'm not criticizing your skins, but there a WHOLE lot of other choices out there that are nothing like that style you're saying is overused.

also, I really don't think all of those styles are your originals. xP just sayin'
Excuse me, but if you actually look I have often used a similar style. My requests for people are the cliché style because that's what they wanted, but the others are generally my original style. Some are hard to tell with hair accessories, e.g. my Hawaiian girl skin, but the bangs are all different, unless I purposely wanted the cliché style for one of my skin because of the skin's personality.

"I don't think all of those styles are your originals." I'm sorry, but they are. They are all styles I have made up, and you have no proof, I'm afraid. Please find me proof before saying this, I have got a disclaimer saying that some people might use the same style, but that is just by chance as I have not copied anyone, but created them myself whilst making skins.

Have a good day.

oh well I'm sorry ms. sassy pants, they aren't your originals, because I've seen every one of those hair styles on other teen skins. Also, you can move away from these styles entirely. You can use what the "popular" skinners use. Not that big of a deal.
"Oh you made something that looks a lot like what others have done before? YOU PLAGIARISED EM! LET'S RANT ABOUT IT ON MY SELF PROCLAIMED STATEMENTS WITH NO FACTUAL BACKING!"
Thank-you, Aero. :)
I wasn't being sassy, I was simply explaining. I know I have created these without influence from other sources, whether others believe me or not, but like my disclaimer says, other people might also use them, but I have not copied their styles. If these styles are used by other people, it is just a coincidence, although I've not seen them anywhere else. I am not saying you have to use what "popular" skinners use, I am just stating my opinion and providing the community with some alternate styles.

Have a good day!

it just bugs me that you pretend to be nice to me just so you can calmly cay that those are your original styles.
I'm not pretending to be nice for anything, so there is nothing to be bugged about. I just am naturally nice. I never said I made up the shading so can you please stop making things up? They are styles I have created, that is a fact, whether anyone else has them on their skins or not. I think I would know, but I'm afraid you wouldn't.

Please let's not turn this into an argument. I know what I've done and I know what I've created. You know what you've seen on other skins and what your opinion is. Like I said several times and will repeat again: I have not copied these styles from anywhere with any influence. I have just played around with different styles on an editor. As there is a limited amount of pixels on the face, by all means other people will have created, used and come across the same styles. This was just an original blog sharing some new bang styles that I use with others who might be grateful for it, like others who have
commented are.

Like I said, let's not argue over this, there is no point. We both know our sides of the stories and that is all that's needed :)

Have a good day!

also, that's the cliché way of shading that cliché style. so you entirely made up that style, AND shading? doesn't sound original to me.

You find it difficult? What aspect of it do you find hard? Perhaps I could make a tutorial.

what i mean is its hard to do different
bangs styles for evey skin..
Oh I see. You don't have to do different ones if you don't want to, this blog was just a suggestion for people who want some originality in their skins. :)

I feel so dumb now ( ._.) XD
Thank-you! You've made my day! :D :') Don't feel dumb, you might just not have realised it before. I try to use some different styles in my designs unless they are requests which people particularly want to have the cliché bang style.
