Bangs are proving they’re not prepared to remain on the fringe of fashion this year, as we see our fave celebs get the cut.
Fringes make a bold statement and while they’re pretty darn easy to get wrong, they can be beautifully transformative when done right. Effortlessly cool and always eye-catching, there’s almost always a fringe to frame every face, be it a full frontal fringe or effortlessly blended side bangs. Argue all you want about maintenance and the awkward grow-out phase, fringes have been a timeless edition to any haircut for decades and celebs are proving this wicked trend won’t be falling of the fashion radar anytime soon.
Messy or manicured accompanying long locks or short bobs, fringes of all varieties have been hitting the catwalk, red carpet and social media of late, gracing the heads of some of the world’s greatest models, actresses and musicians. A gang of celebs have rocked the red carpet with bangin’ bangs over the last year or so, including Emma Roberts who showed up to the Critics Choice Awards last year with a blunt bob and sci-fi style fringe (which looked extra glam with a pair of long jewelled earrings).
Emma Watson opted for the edgy look of ‘micro-bangs’ (think super short and roughly chopped) on the Vanity Fair red carpet in late 2018, and others have followed suit this year with a variety of looks from the sultry side sweep tucked behind the ear as seen on Kylie Jenner, through to Miley Cyrus’ debut of a choppy fringe alongside beachy waves. Selena Gomez jumped on the band wagon for Coach’s New York Fashion Week show with rough bangs blended into new waist-length brunette hair.
Sleek and corporate or edgy rockstar – fringes work with any style you’re going for and make for a perfect wintery look.
