Baby Bangs Are the Latest Hair Trend — Here's How to Nail Them
Emma Roberts, a.k.a. a true hair chameleon, debuted a blonde lob with a set of baby bangs at the 23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. Her hairstylist Nikki Lee of Nine Zero One salon posted a snapshot of the look via Instagram captioning, “Not a look we typically do but then again who wants to be typical? Not us!” She’s got that right: You don’t see this ‘do every day. What makes this such a statement is the fact that the bangs are evenly cut straight across and super blunt.
Bella Thorne proves baby bangs can be both delicate and badass at the same time. The short fringe mixed with a few slightly longer pieces is key to adding more dimension. Here, she wears them well with loose waves. The beauty of this look is its versatility: “I generally like to cut short bangs after the hair has been dried straight down,” says hairstylist Derek Yuen. “Style them whichever way you want; choppy, separated, or brushed down and sleek to perfection.”
Sofia Boutella has a thing for bangs. A longtime brunette, the Star Trek: Beyond star was recently seen at Stella McCartney’s autumn 2018 collection launch in a fresh blonde lob and her signature fringe. “Short hair can suit anyone, but if you have a flat crown area, this can be unflattering, so make sure to ask your hairdresser to build some weight into this area of the cut,” says hairstylist Sami Knight. Comb through hair with your fingers while blow-drying and add a spritz of John Masters Organics Sea Mist Sea Salt Spray With Lavender. “This will give your hair some bite. Finish with Oribe AirStyle Flexible Finish Cream to add some definition.”
