But again, I think that the women who are most observant would not be the ones with their bangs showing.
Why though? If they are completely observing what they believe the text to entirely mean ... I don't know. It just sort of sounds to me like mixing up being strictly observant with being behaviorally strict. Like severity=observance.
I think it's a lot like our Muslim friends have been saying. Especially with Judaism, interpretations are given LOTS of weight. They differ according to community and whose rabbinic authority you subscribe to.
