Seriously though, we’re not sure when bangs become hot – but they’re a thing again. Justin Timberlake’s beau, Jessica Biel, definitely sparked this sensation with her Netflix hit Sinner and we’ve been in love with them ever since. We’ll admit, in the beginning, we were hesitant (as you should be with any new trend) but they have seriously grown on us. Taking it back a few decades, these babies were originally inspired by none other than Brigitte Bardot herself. Think heavy, but wispy, with plenty of texture around the face to make it the total babe look.
For a few seasons now, the shag has made its way into the heart – and salons – of many. For anyone that is looking to switch up their lob or grow out a bob, the shag is the obvious choice. If you’re looking for cool girl chic to accompany the natural hair trend – get a shag! The shag gained popularity because your style is literally built into the haircut. If you have wavy, curly, or straight hair adding shaggy layers immediately adds more interest to your look.
Kaia Gerber made this style an instant hit this season. Along with 90’s it-girl chic, bobs + barrettes are the go-to for joining the club this season. The most important aspect of this cut is to find someone who truly understands your hair and your routine. If your hair is on the thicker side, you may have waned away from this style in the past. However with inspiration everywhere and new techniques being shared on the daily, getting the bob is now easier than ever. With interior layers and texturizing techniques galore, even the densest hair can get the look.
Effortless waves are the new beach wave. Instead of a perfectly patterned wave, we love to take a few steps back on the iconic look. Instead, mix up your waves with alternating techniques such as wand made modern finger waves and a classic wrap curl. Trying out different things and elongating the pattern is the best way to get the look. Take your cues from London Fashion Week Shows – Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou.
