Last night at Espace in New York City, designer Nicole Romano showed off her Fall 2008 collection. I still can't believe that we are currently in the throes of winter, yet designers are already working on looks for next autumn.
The clothing at the prefashion week presentation was shiny, tight, and colorful. The eye and lip makeup was bold, but it was the short, thick, and perfectly curled-under bangs on the models that mostly caught my attention. I haven't seen this look in decades.
To find out how you can re-create these bangs at home,
- Step 1: Begin with wet hair and make sure that your bangs are parted evenly. Having an uneven line will draw your eyes away to your part.
- Step 2: Prep hair with a light-hold styling product to thicken and control the hair. Next, take a small- to medium-sized round brush like this Acca Kappa Nylon Brush and curl it under your bangs at the roots. Make sure you have a good grip so that there is tension between your hair and the brush. Then, point the blow dryer down so that the hair shaft dries smoothly. Begin at the roots and work your way down to the ends.
- Step 3: When you are just about finished, hold the brush in place for 20 seconds or until the hair is cool. Gently pull the brush away and hair should still be curled in place. Finish by spraying bangs with a light mist of hairspray. Voila, you are runway-ready!
