We’re not going to pretend to know who Rose Byrne is, outside of the fact that she’s on Damages, a show we’ve never seen (but have heard good things about). We will, however, fully admit to knowing plenty about her recently cut bangs, which mesmerize us every time she turns up on the red carpet. Her appearance at last night’s New Museum Spring Gala in New York, where she accessorized her signature mod fringe and blunt-cut clavicle-grazing brunette tresses with a Calvin Klein Collection dress, was no exception. Here’s the secret of her success: To get that perfect forehead curvature that properly utilizes the weight of the fringe, you need to curl the ends ever so slightly, applying heat to a round brush. Sure, that may sound like a gratuitous extra step, but this is the kind of reward you’ll reap. Which look do you think is her best?
