NCIS' Pauley Perrette's Big Bang Hairstyle Theory

Pauley Perrete plays Abby the adorable brainy lab technie on the beloved NCIS every week on CBS.  When Pauley is onscreen as Abby she rocks thick eye-grazing bangs with a few longer face-framing pieces of hair which blend into her trademark high pig tails.

Pauly's bangs look best when they're sharp, precise and kept at the proper position along the forehead.  Too short and they look dorky, too long and you can't see Pauley's gorgeous eyes.

Big bangs like Abby wears don't work for all face shapes, hair types or hair textures.  Someone with naturally curly, wavy or textured tresses may only be able to achieve blunt across-the-forehead bangs like Abby with the popular clip-on bangs.

Of course someone with natural curls can achieve a version of bangs by having a fringe cut that literally extends below their chin to allow for natural curl shrinkage.  Wavy hair can be tamed into a fringe (I know, I have this type of hair) with a paddle or round brush and a blow dryer.

When the adorable Pauley is off-screen she still rocks her version of blunt bangs.

Unlike Abby, Pauley, who often gets her hair cut and styled at Hairroin Salon in West Hollywood, will style her bangs with some edgy separation or brush them to the side to show off her gorgeous eyes, skin, lips and face.

If you love Pauley's fringe and want to get your own fringe to look great like hers, keep in mind that most hair stylists offer inexpensive fringe touch-ups every two to three weeks at the salon.

Some hairstylists will trim your fringe at no charge if you're a regular or have other hair services performed.

Is Pauley's fringe right for everyone?  Probably not.  Keep in mind your own face shape, hair length, texture and style and consult with your professional hairstylist to find the very best hair look for you.
