Cooler weather has lots of advantages: you can layer clothing, your eye makeup won’t run, and your hair doesn’t frizz. Fall style is usually a little edgier than summer, and while adding darker lipstick or a richer shade of eye shadow are great ways to play up the gritty side of your style, neither will offer you the cool factor of these bangs. Long thick fringe split at the center with frayed edges will lend your leather jacket instant credibility and add a touch of rocker chic to even your most feminine dress.

Step: Ask for a thick fringe that starts at the front round of the head, cut with a razor to ensure a diffused edge. Surface layering adds even more texture and is essential for thick, coarse textures.
Step: Apply a dime of hair gel for hold without stickiness or excess shine. Dry with a round paddle brush using a back and forth wrapping motion while moving dryer from roots to ends.
Step: Polish ends by lifting slightly and drying over the flat surface of the paddle brush. Finish with a mist of refinish.
