The shag is a flattering style for thick textures, but for fine, low-density strands the heavily layered style can look stringy and thin. This shape is the perfect solution, offering a choppy grungy vibe without excessive thinning. Thick, textured bangs add visual density. Un-layered length with choppy tips create a varied surface while maintaining weight. The result is cool, easy to style, and perfect for fine, straight textures.

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. Click the notes to learn more and see her latest look. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

I love bangs and I’m always happy when the thick ones are on trend. But as a long-time bang lover, I know this particular style comes with some challenges, especially when it comes to wearing your hair up. A blunt fringe negates the possibility of wispy edges or face framing tendrils. The strong line of a full bang can give the right updos a cool, contemporary edge, but on the wrong look it can feel blocky and awkward. Click the notes to find out which styles pair best with a strong fringe. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

The contrast of thick, shiny bangs and loose, wispy layers is an intriguing balance of ethereal and architectural styles. The textures anchor each other, creating a balanced look that is urban, pretty and ultra-stylish. It’s especially suited for the trends this spring, which are falling towards the extreme ends of the texture spectrum. It’s both organic and geometric.
