Allure beauty news editor Catherine Quinn O'Neill wrote that two of her friends saw their Tinder popularity soar after they adopted bangs. One friend who was contemplating bangs even uploaded pictures of herself on Tinder without them to track how many matches and messages she received in one week. She then repeated the process once she cut them.

The results? Without bangs, she received 48 matches and with bangs she received 84. Not exactly conclusive for all women, but noteworthy nonetheless.
