I bet even pony skeptics can be convinced by Birkin Bangs?
Jane Birkin knows about accolades - the real ones and the proverbial ones. In 2001, the English-French actress and singer were admitted to the British Order of Knights and promoted to the so-called "Officer".
Previously, she had already received a fashionable accolade. Because at the beginning of the 80s, Hermès chief designer Jean-Louis Dumas dedicated the Birkin bag to the actress, which today has a true cult character as a handbag.
After the fashion and textile accolades, Jane Birkin 2022 is now being honored with hair. Because the latest hairstyle trend in terms of bangs is inspired by her star hairstyle and is called Birkin Bangs. The fringe hairstyle is so ingenious that it will definitely convince even the biggest fringed skeptics.
Jane Birkin's success and popularity can be traced back to the cult film "Blow Up", with which she celebrated her international breakthrough in 1967. From then on, the French-by-choice style icon shaped the look of an entire era.
She usually wore her long, dark blonde hair loose and slightly tousled. In addition, she wore a center parting and a fringed and airy cut fringe that ended at the height of the eyebrows.
This pony cut is now preparing to become the hairstyle trend of 2022. Stars such as model Julia Stegner, actress Dakota Johnson and “Marvel” star Elizabeth Olsen are already fans of the pony and wear Birkin Bangs.
In contrast to the hitherto extremely popular curtain bangs in the style of Brigitte Bardot, the Birkin Bangs appear significantly less compact. The layered cut of the hairstyle trend also looks fresher and therefore a bit younger and more modern than the side fringes.
In addition, the Birkin Bangs look particularly casual and cool when they are a bit disheveled and tousled. This makes the hairstyle trend significantly less time-consuming and requires less styling than other pony hairstyles.
In addition, the Birkin Bangs work wonderfully with both thin and fuller hair. While the former have more structure and therefore volume thanks to the hairstyle trend, the latter appear less heavy thanks to the airy fringes.
Birkin Bangs are also ideal for the transitional period in spring, because on the one hand they warm the forehead on cold days and also look great under hats, and on the other hand they do not cause sweating on the forehead in summer temperatures.
The only catch: Because the fringes on the forehead inevitably come into contact with the skin, the hair can quickly become greasy from the body's own sebum. You can counteract this with dry shampoo and prevent stringy bangs.
