This feathery fringe is the bangs equivalent of wearing a silk robe. It’s soft, romantic, comfortable, and, paired with a glass of champagne (you know, the real kind from the real region), it’s oh-so-French. “These bangs are usually longer than regular fringes and have lots of texture,” says Fabian Lliguin, hairstylist and co-founder of Rahua, who says these bangs can easily be air-dried for an undone look.
New York City-based hairstylist Travis Speck recommends leaving them loose and pulling the rest of the hair into a messy chignon or ponytail, like Jenna Ortega has here. And when they get too long? Go with it (that’s the beauty of this looser, bedhead-y fringe). “Letting bangs grow into something different is actually what makes them special,” he says.
’80s Grunge Bangs
Speck expects to see these grungy punk rock bangs make a comeback in 2023. It’s very “I don’t care about my hair, I just cut it with my kitchen shears,” and there’s something extremely, well…chic about that (Or did we just make it not chic by saying it was chic?).
