Got Bangs? Survive a Hot, Sweaty Summer With These Hair Tricks

bangs-summer-hairstyle-ideasAnyone with bangs gets that they’re kind of a love-hate relationship package deal. If this past season inspired you to emulate Bottega Veneta’s full-on fringe (Guido Palau cut them on “anyone who would let him.”) or Céline’s mignonne French-girl micro version, the current weather might have you regretting that decision. Sure bangs can be fun and edgy, plus they “hide wrinkles” according to Caroline de Maigret, but in the summertime? A one-way ticket to sweaty town. Instantly cool down, while still looking cool, with five ideas for freeing your forehead from fringe.


Braid Off

Take a cue from model Caroline Trentini and craft a plaited crown out of your fringe.

Swept Away

Create a deep side part and brush bangs up and over to one side, à la Sienna Miller.

Wrap It Up

Grace Mahary’s summer-ready headband is just the thing for anyone looking to make a clean break from their bangs.

Clip In

Use bobby pins or a barrette to secure shorter pieces at the top of your head, like Suki Waterhouse.

Smooth Move

If you have longer fringe, make Alexa Chung’s Met ball slicked-back style your go-to.
