Bangs Are Having a Moment—Again-------
I’m going to borrow a line from the esteemed film Legally Blonde to describe the beauty move catwalker Karen Elson debuted on Instagram yesterday: She got bangs. Her hair is so now. Fringe is having a moment (fellow model Grace Hartzel sported a covetable rock-and-roll version of the trend in the Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2014 lookbook shot by Hedi Slimane, and Jamie Bochert appeared on the cover of the latest issue of Style.com/Print wearing her signature set), which is interesting seeing as balmier weather is (let us pray) almost upon us and the effect it has on bangs isn’t pretty (think strands stuck to forehead). But humidity be damned—whether you wear them long and wavy like Hartzel and Bochert, or short and blunt like Elson, I think going under the scissors this spring is well worth the risk.
