When we talk about fashion icons we often mention those with a classical style, but edgy girls need inspiration too. Edie Campbell is young, but she’s already made an impact and her hair has been a huge part of her success. Her first major transformation from a flaxen one-length cut with bangs to an ebony shag debuted on the cover of Vogue. She wears styles that other girls fear – bowls, mullets – and she makes them look sexy and glamorous. Her most recent style is a jet bob-length crop with some very unusual details.

Bangs are cut blunt and thick then texturized. This allows them to look either geometric or piecey depending on how they’re styled.

Side burns cut into the temple area give the cut an edgy boyish feeling. This section is thin enough to blend in with the layers when desired but adds a bit of cheek-bone-defining interest when worn sleek.

Layers are choppy, aggressive and cut shortest around the face with a shaggy, weightless feeling. They can be separated with texture paste for punk vibe, worn softly tousled with hair cream or smoothed together with healing oil.
