But her latest look is arguably her chicest yet. Leaning over this carefree cool French strain, but with something of a rock and roll twist, by Gerber the long blunt bangs are inspired by the ’70s shag cut, officially making this the hottest hair look of the season.
Want to imitate the look? British Vogue asked the experts how to do it correctly.
1. Ask your hairdresser to keep your bangs long
Which sets by Gerber the fringe apart from the others is its length that grazes the eyes. This is what keeps the bangs bold and sexy as they draw attention to the wearer’s gaze. “Be sure to ask your hairstylist to make sure they keep the bangs on slightly longer, with a bit of layering at the bottom to create that long, soft and sexy effect,” says the London-based hairstylist. Gustav Fouché.
To achieve that extra elegance, the hairdresser Larry king suggest leaving the edges soft. “When you are going to have this type of bangs, the best way to explain it is to leave the edges softer so that it blends in with the rest of the cut and has a nice arch.”
2. Reserve for regular cuts
To keep your bangs looking their best, you should aim to have them trimmed regularly. “The shelf life of these marginal ranges,” says by Gerber must hairstylist in LA, King of Aaron. “If your hair is healthy, trimming can be especially common because it will grow much faster than treated hair.” Conversely, thinner hair tends to grow a bit slower, so you won’t need to cut it as often.
Overall, aim for every three to four weeks, unless you want to change it. The advantage of this bangs is that you can leave it on for longer. “This type of bangs grow well, giving you a nice, soft parting,” says Larry king.
3. Style with light products
When it comes to styling, there’s nothing worse than weighing down your bangs with excess product. Light textures are essential – and even these should be used sparingly. “Personally, I don’t really like using products in bangs, which could risk making the hair greasy,” he explains. Fouché. “Instead, I prefer to use a light mousse, just to give it a little texture.”
