Curly Cues

This season, bangs to the wave.

Curly Hair

The fact that bangs are back is not news. For several seasons, we’ve watched as models went for supershort Amélie styles and actresses adopted heavy Jane Birkin drapes. But short or long, bangs have always played it stick straight—until now, anyway. At the fall shows, top catwalkers made waves with their loose, brow-grazing fringe. To create the softly coiled coif here, the stylist Romina Manenti added volume with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray before finger-combing in a dab of Aquage Detailing Creme and defining the curls with a large-barrel iron. Varying the size of the sections, Manenti explains, keeps the locks from looking stiff and unnatural. “I was thinking of Jennifer Beals in Flashdance,” she says. What a feeling.
