Everything You Need to Know About the Sexy, Shaggy Way to Wear Bangs
They say three is a trend — but the latest bangs craze has exceeded the standard number. In this case, real life (or rather celebrity life) is mirroring the runway, so you can bet the fad is going to take off. Backstage at New York Fashion Week Spring 2016, we saw a bunch of fierce fringes. At Christian Siriano, Rebecca Minkoff, and Vera Wang, models received clip-in faux bangs. Then, at Alexander Wang, models actually got haircuts before they walked the runway. But what really set us at the edge of our seats was when Kate Middleton debuted the same exact style at the exact same time!
These are not the mod, blunt bangs of the past — but rather they are a continuation of the "swag" haircut. The new fringes skim the eyelashes and have a grown-out feel. Like window curtains, they frame your face and accentuate your cheekbones. And they seamlessly blend into long layers — so if you do want to try a clip-in pair, no one will be able to tell.
Other A-listers such as Ciara, Dakota Johnson, and Olivia Wilde have recently debuted these shaggy, swaggy bangs, while pioneers like Taylor Swift and Alexa Chung were ahead of the curve. But we bet your friends haven't caught on yet, so keep reading to see more examples of this look and bring one of the photos to your stylist for your Fall haircut appointment.
