Hair trends: Baby Bangs

It is certainly no secret that at Glasshouse we love good brows, and when your brow game is at it’s strongest there’s no better time to have a cut that ensures they’re always proudly on show. Enter: Baby Bangs.

More versatile than it may first appear, a short fringe can take many guises and to help you find your perfect shape we’ve found a few muses that can be looked to for inspiration.

Firstly, don’t be afraid of a little texture – model Fei Fei Sun’s choppy, short fringe is charmingly quirky and takes centre stage combined with a relaxed, wispy ponytail or bun. 
Keep rolling with the androgynous vibe and pair your baby bangs with a pixie-cut for the ultimate cool-girl chop, or if you only want to take the plunge temporarily a clip-on fringe is the way to go – head over to our SS16 Hair Trends Round Up to see how fashion brand and raw-edged denim dynamites Marques Almeida utilised a hair piece, creating unique irregular short bangs for their most recent show at London Fashion Week.

Another ultimate reference for the micro-fringe is Glasshouse muse Angelina Jolie, à la Girl Interrupted, with her slightly off-kilter super short fringe. There’s something we love about a cut you could almost get away with doing at home with a pair of kitchen drawer scissors….

If you’ve found a version of this look that takes your fancy, the next step is acquiring a product that makes styling it a breeze. We particularly love Organic Colour Systems Control Texture - work the product through your hair for instant textured nonchalance. Dry shampoo is also a must for bangs of any length, and Revive Volumising Dry Shampoo will keep your ‘do fresh morning, noon and night as well as giving it a little grit.

When it comes to hair, we’ve all got our faithful classics that we come back to again and again, but sometimes it’s good to have a little fun. And we think baby bangs are just the update we’ve been waiting for.
