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.

short bangs

Everyone is wearing long bangs, the piecey, choppy grown out kind. They are super cool and they look great on some people. But, like any beauty trend, they don’t work for everyone. If you’ve embraced the long bang you may find yourself fighting forehead grease, feeling unpolished, or constantly trying to get those wispy strands out of your face. You may think the solution is to grow out your new fringe. But I’ve got a better idea. Go shorter. Yes, really. Click the style notes for a few good reasons. –– Laura Martin

pinuo

A U-shaped fringe paired with soft, flowing length recalls the classic pinup style of Betty Page, while contrasting colors and diffused edges add a modern twist. The light, flowing ends lend themselves to easy straightening or soft, bouncy curls. The blunt bangs add drama to any look ranging from a simple ponytail to glamorous hollywood waves.

mohawk

Updos serve a variety of functions from keeping hair out of your face at the gym to adorning a formal dress at a wedding, but few looks work at both ends of the updo spectrum. This look is a rare exception. This braided faux hawk has enough structure to work at the gym, is simple enough for the office, and has wind-blown romance perfect for a date or a wedding. Get step-by-step instructions for creating this highly adaptable style in the notes. –– Laura Martin

braids

This look blends country glamour with urban chic; it walks the line between horseback and catwalk. Loose texture gives the style a romantic finish while asymmetry adds a touch of edginess. Play up this style’s dualistic nature by wearing it with neutral makeup and oversized earrings or add a few flowers and a streak of bright shadow for edgy romance.
