Camilla Belle Will Take Away Your Fear of Bangs

Nov 4 2013 - 8:34am

The biggest issue that keeps women from adding a set of fringe to their style is the fear of commitment. For better or worse, you're stuck with blunt bangs, through the awkward growing-out phase, until they seamlessly blend into the rest of your hair.

Well, Camilla Belle effectively removed our fears this weekend, when she seamlessly swung between her new, heavy fringe [1] and a bangless style in less than 24 hours. On Saturday, Camilla stepped out sporting her hair in a sleek, straight style. Her deep side part dramatically concealed her bangs, save for a few loose, wispy pieces along her hairline.

To mimic the style at home, start with damp hair and apply a strong hold mousse, like Vidal Sasson Pro Series Mousse [2] ($4). Next, part your hair deeply to the side, making sure your bangs incorporate into the rest of your hair, and blow-dry with a round brush. The trick is to focus the heat along your bangs and the hair it is blended into so it dries together. Once your hair is dry, apply a pomade, like Serge Normant Meta Form Sculpting Pomade [3] ($25), for extra hold. And when in doubt, a strategically placed bobby pin can provide even more hold . . . and an adorable accent.
