From soft and wispy to short and cute, bangs are the latest way celebrities are making a bold style statement. ELLECanada.com picked the four hottest trends and gives you tips on how you can work the fringe.
Reese Witherspoon and Penelope Cruz are among the celebs trying out this soft and textured take on fringe sometimes referred to as “peekaboo bangs.” Many people can pull off this look, especially as wisps don’t hide the face says Desparois and McKay. And the piecey look changes drastically depending on how they are cut – short or long, fine or thick. But Hanson suggests keeping them shorter if trying to lengthen a face.

'Many people can pull off this look,' says Marc Desparois and Leslie Anne McKay, Senior Stylists at Tonic Salon Spa
- Ask for piecey, disheveled, mid-length bangs.
- Prep hair with a light styling product.
- Blow dry straight.
- Define individual pieces with sculpting pomades or wax. Hanson recommends twisting small section at a time, rolling the hair end between your fingertips to break up the style.
- This style is relatively easy to maintain as it grows out and only requires a trim every 3-6 weeks.
Tip: Those with fine or oily hair should go very light on product as it will weigh the hair down. You can also just wash and dry your bangs to for a quick style refresher.
