The cut: Bardot Bangs
Celebrity inspiration: Ciara
What it looks like: Prendergast delves into this trend, calling it "a soft, fringey bang with an almost '70s vibe." It's the perfect light layer around the face and a great way for people who have done the long bob and want to transition into bangs that are light and wispy.
What to ask for at the salon: Ask your stylist for rounded bangs with slightly softer edges at your desired length. Also worth noting: requesting a length that is worn below the cheekbones makes this style extremely versatile.
Styling tip: Prendergast suggests blow-drying forward to avoid cowlicks and to finish ends off with a flat or round brush, depending on your desired look. She adds that it's great for pulling back into a messy bun and letting the feathered bangs do their thing.
Maintenance: Plan on this look being more maintenance depending on how much you want to keep them the same length. A wispier, softer bang will be less maintenance because it looks great parted in the middle or centred, she added.
