Natural beauty, Christina Ricci sports a strong sense of style, and this cute little pony with a soft side bang is an ideal daytime summer look. Pulling hair away from the face keeps you cool and creates the illusion of lift for cheekbones and chin; the side bangs, meanwhile, open the face frame and adds a cute, whimsical touch.

Wide, curved fringes frame the face beautifully, highlighting the eyes and softening sharp angles. The clean geometry of the heavy line gives a modern sculptural feeling that is reminiscent of sixties Bauhaus architecture. Pairing the strong bang with loose layers and choppy texture provides balance and versatility for a look that plays to both the need for structure and the longing for freedom.

Minimal makeup with strong brows, flirty dresses with hardware-inspired accessories –– if you love to mix and match dissimilar elements this cut is the perfect finishing touch. Read on for tips on getting the look, tricks for styling it at home, and ideas for completing the look with makeup and clothing. –– Laura Martin
