Kelly Clarkson's "Birkin Bangs" Signal a Shift
Much like bobs, bangs have been experiencing a major resurgence over the last few years. For a while, face-framing curtain bangs popped up daily on your "For You" page, but Clarkson's new fringe signals a change in the tides as we return back to arguably one of the most popular versions of them all.
Named after Jane Birkin for her effortlessly chic sense of style, this look is characterized by its wispy, piecey finish. Acting as an accessory in their own right, Birkin bangs instantly elevate low-maintenance hairstyles like messy buns or ponytails but they also look great paired with more made-up looks, like the gorgeous waves that Clarkson debuted alongside them.
If you're on the hunt for the perfect bangs style for you, numerous other celebrities like Zendaya, Megan Fox, and Jennifer Lopez have all put their spin on the look. But even with these stars acting as inspiration, we recommend having a consultation with a professional hairstylist to make sure that the style you choose is the right one for your texture and face shape.
