These bangs are so versatile, they suit any face. Straight out of the 70s, Farah Fawcett's waft fringe is reborn in 2021 in a modernized version.
Sometimes it is difficult to succumb to the call of the scissors. Our little inner voice may well whisper to us: "It's just hair, it will grow back"... already pointed out by the unpleasant prospect of having to compose for several months with a style that does not suit us.
Bangs can be a good compromise to upgrade a haircut without radically changing your head. In this area, one style stands out: the waft fringe. Straight out of the 70s, the puffy bangs, as one could translate it, are rocked by the boho trend. Its structure as whipped by the wind is inseparable from the eternal Funny Lady Farrah Fawcett. Short in the center of the forehead, it gradually elongates to the sides with an inverted brushing. Thick and textured, it creates a strong styling. The difference with the curtain fringe? The rebellious waft fringe with ostentation. In 2021, this retro allure returns in a modernized form. Devoid of volume and less plump, it unfolds in a subtle, refined, graphic, and much longer version. Watchword? A wavy and flat movement. Its structure, a perfect combination of short and layered locks, blends in while framing the face to highlight the cheekbones and reveal the eyes.
According to hairstylists, the styling offered by the waft fringe is so flattering that it suits everyone. The bangs are versatile and match most face shapes. To do this, you just have to adapt the structure. If the face is rather long, the bangs can tickle the jawline and curl outward to add symmetry. If, on the contrary, the face is rather round, the bangs can be deployed all in length. To style it, nothing could be simpler. The tips are slightly twisted then fixed by arming themselves with an essential cosmetic: lacquer in abundance! The insurance for the cup to stay put. This type of bang requires little effort and maintenance. On the days when acute flemingitis takes hold of us... No need to style it, just melt it into the hair mass.
