Carla Bruni cuts her feathered bangs herself...
Singer Carla Bruni apparently does not believe in long visits to the hairdresser. Instead, the 54-year-old model preferred to use scissors and simply cut the signature Feathered Bangs hairstyle herself. She presented the result to her fans on Instagram. We explain who has the hairstyle and how to style it best.
"Saturday pony" - that's how Carla Bruni reported to her 680,000 Instagram followers and wished them a nice weekend. In addition, the French supermodel shared a gallery in which she grabs scissors and cuts her bangs - alone at home and without the help of a professional.
Specifically, Carla Bruni created Feathered Bangs, also known as Feathered Fringe - a hairstyle that the wife of France's ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy wore from time to time in her career and that is definitely part of her signature style.
Feathered bangs are the light version of the well-known, straight bangs and, unlike curtain bangs, are not draped on the sides. A few short fringe strands are fringed on the forehead - so they look feathered -, the side strands remain longer and frame the face. It is important that the whole thing is not cut too full and accurately, the aim is rather a desired undone look.
The feathered fringe is styled with a round brush so that the fringes do not stick to the forehead. Then let the fringe hang out and the trendy hairstyle with that certain French chic is ready! As a rule of thumb, feathered bangs get their texture at the ends, not by cutting layers right into the hair.
