We can’t get enough of Selena Gomez’s bangs! The singer’s shaggy fringe has us feeling inspired to try out the face-framing cut, too, but not before consulting with the experts. Before you head to the salon, check out these pro tips about getting bangs.
Selena Gomez, 23, debuted the most perfect-for-summer layered bangs earlier this week, and we have a feeling her new cut will be inspiring a lot of hair looks. But before you see your stylist, read up on our expert’s advice, then check out all of the styling tools and products you’ll want to add to your arsenal.
Before you make the cut (whether blunt or wispy like Selena), we asked Nicole Contrastano of Pierre Michel Salon in NYC for her top four tips.
Fake ‘Em First: “Go to a place like Ricky’s or even search online for bang attachments to try out and see if bangs are for you.”
Decide If They Suit You: “In general, people with medium to large foreheads and straight hair do well with bangs. Bangs do not wear well on a small forehead, wavy or frizzy hair and one who has a cowlick. Longer and oval faces do well with bangs but not round faces.”
Talk To Your Stylist: “Discuss with your stylist what bangs are best for you, but in general, blunt bangs give a more severe, edgy look [and] wispy [bangs are] softer and sexier.”
Style Smart: “Blow-dry with the nozzle attachment which directs the air [for a smooth finish]. Use either a 1 and a 1/2 inch barrel boar hair brush or boar hair flat brush on the hair. If you have sensitive skin, never put products in your bangs because it may cause breakouts.”
