Celebrity Hair - Bangs and Fringes 2014
One hair look that constantly cycles in and out of fashion has been the "fringe" which is British for the American term "bang".
Throughout recent hair history bangs have been seen in large numbers on the fashion walkways from time to time.
Whether you call it a "fringe" or a "bang", this hairstyle has once again become popular with many of the top supermodels, fashionistas and celebrities.
Some people, myself included, just prefer to have bangs all the time. Although I have never managed to be plagued by those traditional 60s style "mall bangs".
I have always preferred some sort of fringe for my face shape. Other people detest and despise a forehead fringe of any kind. With everything hair related, not every type of fringe is right for every type of hair.
Why do bangs continue to cycle in and out of favor? The simple act of adding a new forehead fringe and skillfully applying some face framing highlights can create an instantaneous awe inspiring transformation.
Creation Of Celebrity Bangs
Celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Lara Flynn Boyle, Kim Cattrall and Jennifer Lopez have used forehead fringes to instantly create brand new sizzling looks.
Many celebrity hairdressers like Ken Paves uses custom hair extension pieces to create perfectly matched bangs for their famous client.
Ken has often told me in our frequent cell phone chats that he "loves bangs because they are such a great way to provide an instant tune-up for just about any hairstyle or look".
And Kenny knows all about celebrity bangs because he has personally created them for Jessica, Lara Flynn, Kim and Jennifer.
Ken created custom add-on bangs for Ashlee Simpson when she appeared on TV's 7th Heaven and created a fabulous set of bang extensions for the gorgeous Marley Shelton when her hair was cut in a very short pixie style.
Ken loves "bangs that are fresh, fun and sizzling. He particularly is fond of side swept and blunt bangs which he has created with great panache for all of his "girls" as he calls his famous group of female celebrity clients.
Selecting The Proper Fringe Style
Bangs have recently been spotted on the fashion runways showcasing 2013 designs which are still being heavily influenced by the 2012 trend of "anything goes".
Fringe endowed models have been spotted wearing angled bangs, eyebrow skimming peek-a-boo fringes and an array of romantic mixed texture bangs.
Classic Blunt Bangs
A basic blunt fringe draws fantastic attention to your eyes. It adds instant drama and works well if you love to crank up your eye makeup.
The blunt bang coupled with the right amount of makeup will produce big beautiful eyes.
Blunt bangs are usually very flattering for face shapes like some heart shaped and inverted triangular face shapes that feature wide or full foreheads.
Blunt cut fringes will help to balance a large forehead and soften facial features including a pointy or prominent chin.
While blunt bangs will usually work with oval face shapes, they may need to be modified to flatter square or round face shapes.
Blunt bangs can be updated for 2013 by mixing in a small amount of choppy or layered texture that gives you the option to play with different looks. Experiment with carefully applied highlights and lowlights to really open up your face and make your eyes pop.
Super Short Bangs
If you want to be really bold and show off your face as well as your peepers, you can wear the teeny tiny short little bangs that are the reason they have been nicknamed "the fringe". True fringes are exactly that.
The classic baby bangs work great for oval and some round face shapes, since short bangs tend to add instant face length and slimness.
Long, angular, thin or oblong faces should stay away from face lengthening mini bangs.
Keep in mind the shorter your bangs, the longer your face will appear.
The good news with the shortest fringe is that it will take a lot longer to grow out than longer bangs. The bad news?
If you hate them, you will have to deal with them for some time.
Straight Hair Fringes
Stick straight hair usually looks great with shorter, blunter styled bangs which tend to soften the overall effect of straight tresses.
If you want to jazz up straight bangs for special events....you can add a little gel to slick them back. You can also add a light hair spray and a hint of glitter.
The layered highlights and lowlights as well as baylage work nicely on straight bangs as well. when adding hair color you can be outrageous or subtle. You can match your current hair color or go wild and use the contrasting lighter or darker hues.
Angled bangs can take on a lot of different forms with just a few longer hairs coupled with a lot of other hairs at different lengths.
You can just let your natural curls and waves take over...or you can gel the bangs to achieve a tousled look.
Some round and diamond face shapes can instantly benefit from angled bangs which would help to add new angles and soften too-wide cheeks.
Bangs that are squared off also will add new angles to a too-round face shape.
Graduated angled bangs tend to be the best bet for curly or wavy hair. Longer bangs have the opposite effect of baby bangs. They will shorten your face.
A lot of people are not aware that they are not only required to wear a white skirt during summertime, but also in winter as well. It is actually not that hard to look for the right skirt that you will be able to wear on cold days because all you need to do is to think about some things when you are already shopping.
