Fringe Benefits – When it comes to hair, nothing quite makes a statement like bangs (or fringe, depending on your preference). Although, one might say the style is limiting there are a ton of ways you can rock this timeless style. Now, stars like Zooey Deschanel, Milla Jovovich and model Karlie Kloss lead the charge in inspiration. Check out our list of eight cool bang styles below.
The Look: Retro Bangs
We love this retro-inspired bangs look from style star Alexa Chung. This sixties inspired look is great for a casual outing or a nighttime affair.
The Look: Bangs with a Bob
Karlie Kloss caused a stir with her new short haircut which was made possible by hair guru Garren who cut Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and other supermodels’ hair. The classic bob goes well with some side-swept fringe.
The Look: Short Cut with Bangs
While we’re on the subject of short hair, nobody quite does a cropped coif like actress Michelle Williams. The blonde star’s short cut is not only daring but is also given a feminine edge with loose bangs.
The Look: Shag with Bangs
The shaggy look has made a comeback with stars like Freja Beha Erichsen and Milla Jovovich rocking the seventies chic look. Tousled curls paired with carefree fringe serves as the perfect bang inspiration.
The Look: Side-swept Bangs
Actress Rashida Jones has rocked the bang look for a while and shows how to pair the hairstyle with a loose braided ponytail.
The Look: Braided Updos with Bangs
Singer Taylor Swift famously got bangs for a Vogue cover shoot, and ever since has rocked the look with a youthful elegance. This braided updo is a beautiful look.
The Look: Long Curls with Bangs
Zooey Deschanel rocks fringe like no one else and her long curly hairstyle paired with straight and sleek bangs is a gorgeous look.
The Look: Bangs with Highlights
We love this hairstyle worn by Kerry Washington who shows off some bright highlights with her bangs. The actress kept her fringe one color for this wavy style.
