Poor lil’ Bella. She may have scored a bunch of lucrative modeling contracts, becoming a millionaire by staring off into the distance, but compared to her big sister, we barely know her. When the Hadid household first got the call to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel, it was only Gigi they wanted. But this year, you might have heard, two Hadid sisters were deemed worthy of selling underwear to the hoi polloi. So, what’s changed? Bangs! Look at what a difference they made for Bella. Her bangs help to draw attention to her sultry eyes while putting her hair up elevates her cheekbones for a stunning, eye-catching look that surely helped get the gig as an Angel.

Keep it soft… the edge, that is. Short bangs work better with a diffused line than bluntness. Piecey fringe also feels lighter so you won’t overheat summer weather.
Don’t be square… short bangs look their best when the line is angled or rounded. Bella’s bangs, which are slightly longer toward the corners provide a perfect example.
Light feels right… Even with a soft edge, you may need additional texturizing or layering to give you bangs the pricey weightless feeling Bella’s have. Your fringe should move easily, and separate naturally so that it looks good even when you’re sweating.
