Are you game for heart bang?

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - RELAXNEWS

This sum­mer is all about wear­ing your heart on your face. Weeks af­ter Amer­i­can model Kendall Jen­ner’s fa­mous “heart hair” selfie be­came the hottest thing on In­sta­gram, it tran­spires that Korean girls have been get­ting cre­ative by in­cor­po­rat­ing the shape into their bangs.

Ear­lier this sum­mer, Kendall posted a pic­ture of her­self ly­ing on the floor in a gor­geous white lacy dress with her brunette locks spread out around her face, ar­ranged into a heart shaped halo. The pic­ture gar­nered 3 mil­lion dou­ble taps to be­come the most­liked photo ever on In­sta­gram — bump­ing big sis­ter Kim Kar­dashian, who pre­vi­ously held the ti­tle for her wed­ding snap with Kanye West, off the top spot.

Hair and beauty fans im­me­di­ately set about recre­at­ing the pose them­selves, and #hearthair be­came an al­most overnight trend, with men, women and chil­dren all get­ting in on the act. All sum­mer, South Kore­ans have been rock­ing heart-shaped bangs for a cute and quirky look, as a quick In­sta­gram search of a hash­tag with Korean text that trans­lates to “heart bangs” will con­firm.

Ac­cord­ing to Kokatu.com, the look is achieved us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of hair curlers and hair spray to twist and lock the bangs into shape. The cutesy look is more of a one-off than an ev­ery­day sta­ple, but is per­fect for so­cial media self­ies, of­ten ac­com­pa­nied by a hand ges­ture that in­volves cross­ing the thumb and fore­fin­ger to cre­ate a match­ing heart sign.

In­sta­gram­mers such as @it­s­likepeggy have been chan­nel­ing the trend, us­ing cap­tions such as “Woke up like this. Jk. Thanks for your weird trends, Korea. #heart­bangs.”
