Cut Your Bangs Straight-Across

Bella Breakdown Rocking straight-across bangs are so fun, and yet so frustrating. Even though they frame your face perfectly, all of a sudden, you realize just how fast your hair really does grow. It can be a huge pain to try and get your bangs professionally cut every time they start growing into your eyes, but at the same time cutting them yourself can feel scary and often turn out horribly wrong. In spite of the scare factor, if you cut your bangs correctly they can end up looking as though a professional did them, without the suffering of...

Should Men Try Makeup?

Bella Breakodwn Men’s makeup has been rising in popularity, and people have opinions. As a female, I am the last one who should have a say in whether or not a man should try makeup on.

Look Sexy In Boyfriend Jeans

Bella Breakdown Oh, boyfriend jeans. How I love your comfort, how I hate your easily unflattering nature. I first bought boyfriend jeans because it was a trend and I was easily drawn to the casual, comfortable style that they gave off (probably like every other girl who owns boyfriend jeans).

It took some time, but eventually I learned that if you pair boyfriend jeans with the right top and shoes they can be comfortable and fashionable at...
