Straight long bangs an it-girl style

To mix-up the simplicity of smooth or slightly wavy long hair, nothing works better than beautiful bangs. In just a few scissor flicks, they give your hair a graphic and structured aspect, for a timeless yet minimalistic look. Let's have a closer look at this iconic look that only the most daring of fashionistas dare to try.

Long hair with bangs: a bold look

Bangs, whether you love 'em or hate 'em, always make an impact. Such is the character of long hair with bangs: both ultra-feminine and graphic thanks to the fringe element. This style brings to mind Andrea (also known as Anne Hathaway) in "The Devil Wears Prada" - and we never get bored of the film or the nineties hairstyle!

Voluminous hair: a big question for long bangs

To recreate this it-girl/good girl/rock chic style worn by numerous top models, there are nevertheless several prerequisites. According to Delphine Courteille, a hairstylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, this look is not suitable for overly fine hair: "Even though bangs suit all face shapes, it's better to only wear them if your hair has some weight to it" otherwise the result will end up falling a bit flat...

Be edgy with a fringe

Delphine Courteille also specifies that it is essential to adapt bangs according to the shape of your face or eyes. For example "with rounded, prominent eyes, it's best to thin out the bangs. To get the perfect fringe that complements our facial traits, it's often a question of millimeters." We leave ourselves in the hands of our regular stylist, who'll know how to help us on our quest for the perfect long bangs.
