List Rules Vote up the bangs that ended up working out.

Bangs. Fringe. Whatever you call it, that hair that hangs down over your forehead can be real hit or miss. People either love bangs or they hate them, but there's one thing we can all agree on: film characters have had some pretty awesome bangs. In fact, the film characters on this list have the best bangs in all of movie history. 

Which movie characters have bangs? Tons of them. There were the teased, awesome bangs of the '80s, straight bangs spanning different decades (such as those rocked by Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction and Meryl Streep in The Giver), and those weird, teeny, tiny bangs Audrey Hepburn had in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

But it's not just ladies who have bangs. Bangs are for everyone! Which male film characters have bangs? Frodo, Anakin, and even Patrick Swayze in Point Break. Bangs are a bold look on a man and can make them look extra-handsome (or extra creepy).

Some of the most memorable hairstyles in film have featured bangs, so vote up the film characters with the most bangin' bangs below. When it comes to hair, these bangs in movies are truly memorable and helped make these classic movie characters who they were. God bless bangs, no matter what style you prefer.
