Kendall, is it you? Model Kendall Jenner graces the cover of US Elle in August. However, we had to look twice at the front page. Because Kim Kardashian's little sister looks completely different on it. This is due to her hair: Actually a big fan of the middle parting, Kendall Jenner now shows herself with stylish curtain bangs.
In contrast to other pony hairstyles, curtain bangs do not lie completely or combed in one direction over the forehead. As their name suggests, they are divided like a curtain in the middle of the face. The bangs fall softly into the rest of the hair in gentle steps. The length of the pony can vary. It just has to be long enough to create the curtain effect.
With her fringed pony, the model is totally on-trend. Hardly any other haircut manages to highlight the face in such a flattering way. Stars like Heidi Klum, Alexa Chung, and actress Dakota Johnson know that too. But the real mother of the Curtain Bangs is Brigitte Bardot. The French cult actress made the hairstyle a trend back in the 60s.
If Kendall Jenner has made you want new hairstyling, you will be delighted with the following news: Curtain bangs simply flatter every face shape. While oval and elongated faces with a high forehead appear a bit more compact thanks to the bangs, round face shapes are advantageously stretched. Curtain bangs work best with straight or wavy hair.
When styling, you should always blow-dry the bangs to the outside - anything else could quickly look old-fashioned. You can create a particularly casual look if you comb through the bangs with your fingers instead of the brush. After blow-drying, you can fix the curtain bangs with wax or hairspray.
