Blunt bangs and how to wear them

Blossom into spring with a look that ensures you're far from a wallflower thanks to blunt, graphic bangs! Here are four examples of different ways to rock a daring blunt fringe, and the best products to keep your stand-out hairstyle in full bloom...

Sleek and shiny brow-bangs

Those with an eye for detail will enjoy the delicate curves of these bangs as they swoop just above the brows to frame the face and emphasize the cheekbones. To get an almost reflective, but not greasy, shine from your hair, use gloss-enhancing haircare like the Pro-Keratin Liss Unlimited collection by Serie Expert, which not only includes a shampoo and conditioner, but also a mask, double serum and smoothing cream.

Short and surprising bangs

Don't want to have to visit the hair salon all the time to have your bangs trimmed? Why not get them cut super short and work a chic and bold micro-fringe, seen on many celebrities in 2018! Keep the rest of your hair light and slightly wavy for a casual finish, but maintain control with a spritz of Infinium Pure hairspray.

Bringing back the bowl: low bangs

The "bowl cut" is back, but is no longer limited to pre-teen boys in the 90s. Instead it now looks its best when worn on a daring shade of platinum! Not only that, but why not make your look ultra-modern with an urban textured finish? Try the Morning After Dust dry shampoo by Tecni.ART, which helps boost volume and texture, freshens hair, and gives it a delicate fragrance.

Blunt AND feathered... is it possible?

Yes! To soften the effect of sheer blunt bangs, ask your stylist to flex their expertise and lightly feather your fringe. While you're there, you could also ask for the same finish on the rest of your hair to bring the look together. We love this effect when styled on multi-dimensional blond shades: beige blond with hints of strawberry to warm the complexion, for example.
