    We love a gal sporting the current holy grail of hair: a face framed with full-on fringe. It’s almost like an S.F. pre-requisite: Move to the city, date a musician, get bangs, break up with the musician, and keep the bangs. While breaking up is easy enough (or not), anyone married to chopped locks can tell you that there are times when they wish they could do something (anything) with those little suckers beyond just letting them hang there!

    And now you can, thanks to the handiwork of S.F.’s go-to bangs stylist, Wendy Newsome of Dreamers and Make Believers Salon, and local blogger Kathleen Murillo, who we paired together to bring you three super-cute (and extra-easy!) DIY styles that will help you switch up your fringe. Whether you have an extreme case of rooster bed head (our bang-tastic friends know what we’re talking about), are in the awkward growing-out stage, or just want to take off your hair helmet for the day, click through for the how-tos. We've got a cool twist, an extra-quirky top-knot style, and a deep side sweep that will let you change your look without having to chop your strands (again).
