If the word bangs conjures a traumatic memory of a thick, chunky mass of hair hanging over your forehead, you’re not alone. For many, bangs are second only to braces in terms of childhood embarrassment. These are not those bangs. These bangs fall past the cheekbone, taper into a delicate point and swing softly from either a center or a side part. Suki wears hers softly waved or silky straight. Sure, she got these bangs by growing out a more traditional fringe, but there’s no reason you can’t just ask for this perfectly lived-in length. Learn more about adding this fringe to your style in the notes. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

french twist

Outside of a wedding or a red carpet event it can be hard to pull off an old school updo. The formality of classic French twists, chignons, and bouffants doesn’t really gel with street style. The usual solution is to mess-up the style with intentional wisps and wild texture. But on the runways we’ve seen a different fix: naked skin. The absence of makeup (or its application on a single feature) gives updos a surprising, youthful, freshness. Learn how to create this high fashion style in the notes. –– Laura Martin

bangs and waves

Beachy waves are easygoing and feminine, a perfect go-to style. But loose undulations don’t offer much in terms of structure. A blunt bang is their perfect counterpoint. Wear this style with the wide athletic headbands that were rampant on Spring 2016 runways or add some whimsy with an oversized clip. This cut stands on its own but the clean lines also form the perfect backdrop for creative styling. Learn more about the shape in the notes. –– Laura Martin
