“These big bold fringe bangs are a take on the Japanese Hime haircut,” says hairstylist Lucia Ara of New Mexico. “Women are able to grow their hair long while still having something edgy in the front. Worn up or down, long hair tucked behind the ear really shows off the front fringe. Or leave them loose for a textured style.”

“These bangs are for many different types of women,” says Ara. “Try something different, explore new things your hair type can do. This fringe style is for women wanting to keep length, but want something different than the norm.”

Her best advice is to get a tuckable length just behind the ear if need be.

“Get shampoo and conditioner such as Oribe’s gold lust, Oribe’s straight away (wavy hair and control), and Oribe’s flash form (for volume and texture). For styling, try Babyliss pro blowdryer with Ibiza medium or large boar bristle brush to smooth it out,” she adds.

Maintaining the shape is important. Hair grows faster than you think. Generally 4 to 6 weeks between haircuts.
