4 Cute Ways To Style Your Bangs

A few of us here at Refinery29 really do love our fringe, and while we're loyal to the look, we sometimes feel stuck on how to style our bangs. To remedy our hair jam, we teamed up with Gaelle Drevet of Pixie Market—we're big fans of her amazing e-boutique—to get the scoop on how Drevet and Co. styled their models' bangs for a recent shoot. Drevet says she finds inspiration in everything from Grease to Ali McGraw and Talitha Getty. So, go ahead and bang it out!
The Pin-Straight—Straight, sleek bangs give an edge to a chin length bob or long locks alike. For best results, start with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner and finish with a smoothing cream.
