BIG BANG THE­ORY

Thick and heavy is back this sea­son. By Sab­rina Loh.

When talk­ing about iconic fringes, you sim­ply can­not go with­out men­tion­ing Jane Birkin’s lus­ciously French bangs, which re­main time­less more than half a cen­tury later. While bangs can take a varitey of forms— long and wispy, cute and fluffy—it is the heavy fringe that se­duc­tively cov­ers the brow circa Blow-Up that stole the show this sea­son. At Em­po­rio Armani, Lutz Huelle, and Ellery, mod­els sported thick fringes that were straight­ened to per­fec­tion, fram­ing the face al­most ge­o­met­ri­cally. At Masha Ma and An­teprima, the heavy fringe took on a more tou­sled, I-woke-up-likethis feel, barely brush­ing the eyes. When Bella Ha­did de­buted her heavy fringe at the CFDA Awards in June, her girl-nextdoor vibe was im­me­di­ately trans­formed, as she ven­tured into edgy su­per­model ter­ri­tory—proof that with slight tweaks, this up­date in­stantly adds char­ac­ter while com­ple­ment­ing al­most any face shape. A gen­tle arch soft­ens square faces, while a graphic cut works for oval and round shapes. Curl bangs in­wards with a straight­ener on low heat, or spritz it with a tex­tur­is­ing spray then tou­sle with your fin­gers. Keep the rest of your hair easy breezy, or non­cha­lantly tied back Birkin-style, too.
