Modern Celebrity Haircuts With Bangs Are Adorable

Earlier in the week we showed you a closer look at three classic haircuts with bangs, but what about those looking to emulate a more modern bangs cut? As we mentioned before, bangs are almost always in style, which means that there is plenty to choose from when it comes to finding contemporary bangs-bearing icons to emulate. Starlets and celebrities of all kinds have sported some famous fringe in recent years, and three of our favorites at Theory Salon are Nicole Richie, Reese Witherspoon and Zooey Deschanel. Each of these well-known women is hugely popular with our customers, who often want to imitate their looks, so here’s a little about the amazing bangs each one is famous for.

She might be most famous for her clothes, but the Nicole Richie bangs look is just as spectacular as her duds.

While Nicole Richie might be best known for her famous father (crooner Lionel Richie) and former best friend Paris Hilton, Richie has also become a major fashion icon after her style was seen on her show The Simple Life. Though the show ended a few years ago, Richie’s style and personality turned her into a celebrity, and part of that are her beloved bangs. Richie’s famous look with bangs features fringe that hangs to just above her eyes and tapers softly on the sides. She usually keeps it feathery at the forehead, and though the cut is in a mostly straight line, it’s slightly textured as opposed to blunt. Richie has been famously seen wearing this cut in three ways: straight down, parted in the middle or sideswept. We particularly like the sideswept look for a short hairstyle with bangs.

Another famously blonde star of the screen is our next bangs-expert, except this time it’s the big screen she graces with her gorgeous locks. Reese Witherspoon is famous for her roles in films like Walk the Line and Cruel Intentions, and her amazing hair is usually

worn down and is generally shoulder length or a bit longer. Though her bangs are similar to Richie’s, there are a few distinct differences that make Witherspoon’s look all her own. First of all, her fringe is cut so that the longest pieces are in the middle, with a very slight taper out toward the sides of the face. She also keeps her bangs quite a bit lighter, with fewer pieces so they look fun and breezy. Speaking of pieces, the hair in her bangs generally falls into distinct, gorgeous little pieces instead of being wispy. Witherspoon almost always keeps her bangs ultra-sideswept in line with the part on the side of her head. For medium haircuts with bangs, the Witherspoon look is a must try.

The youngest star on our list of contemporary bangs icons is Zooey Deschanel, a brunette and a constant feature on both film and television. At the forefront of the indie-rock-cute, hipster-lite fashion movement, Deschanel’s hair has become a jumping off point for more than a few young fashionistas. Worn both straight and with gorgeous waves, Deschanel’s hair is usally

down and somewhere between shoulder-length and a few inches longer. Her bangs are well-known for their blunt, straight across cut, and they tend to hang a little bit in front of the eyes for a bit of a mysterious effect. Though she will very rarely do a sideswept look with her fringe, typically Deschanel keeps her bangs unparted, though she does tend to give them a bit of volume so that they don’t just hang straight down, but curve off the top of the head. This gives her a bit of a retro 50′s look, and it’s one of our very favorites for a long hairstyle with bangs.

From classic looks like what we showed you earlier this week to those of these inarguably up-to-date three women, bangs are definitely a must-try for any girl thinking about a new look. Hairstyles with bangs rarely fall out of fashion, and we love the way they can transform a person’s whole look with just a little manipulation. Come try out one of these great looks at the Salon for yourself and do something fun for your hair today!

Celebrity Hairstyles with Bangs – Iconic Bangs You’ll Love to Wear!

We just love it at the Salon when everything about a great haircut comes together and just looks spectacular, and a very important part of that process is what to do about bangs. While you can always opt out of having bangs, we just can’t get enough of bangs done right, and lucky for lovers of the look, bangs are definitely in style right now. In fact, bangs almost never go out of style and can be seen throughout history on some of the most influential fashionistas. These celebrity haircuts with bangs can often become iconic, and they’re excellent as inspiration for your next look.

Elizabeth Taylor was a fashion and film titan and is well-loved by her fans.

Few haircuts in history have been so firmly entrenched in the mind of the public as that of Hollywood icon Liz Taylor when she played the sultry Egyptian queen Cleopatra in the film of the same name. While Liz’s hair famously featured big curls and waves in her normal life, her portrayal of Cleopatra included straight, black shoulder-length hair with nearly blunt, slightly curving bangs. This cut is a classic, and is one of the best medium hairstyles with bangs. The original was, of course, jet black and featured sleek, straight hair, but we think this look is also dynamite with hair of almost any color, and it can be modified with a part or a ruffled look.

Sultry just doesn't cut it when talking about Peggy Moffitt's incredible look.

Peggy Moffitt, one of the most influential models in history. Moffitt was known for her exciting, energetic fashion photos, and part of her intense draw were her amazing, cutting edge bangs. Moffitt’s most famous look included a sleek, boyish haircut made feminine with bangs cut blunt to just above the eye. These had a slight curve that ended at the temple and reversed back up again to the ear, making a point. Unlike Taylor’s, Moffitt kept her hair very short, making this one of the coolest retro short hairstyles with bangs. Moffitt also famously sported asymmetrical bangs in some of her most well-known shots, leaving the bangs long enough on one side to cover an eye and the top of the cheekbone. This look is super high-fashion and is still guaranteed to wow.

Birgitte Bardot and her ever-popular blonde bangs.

No article on bangs would be complete without mentioning the lovely and talented Brigitte Bardot, who had a very different look from our other two iconic wearers of fringe. This actress/model’s big, expressive eyes and pouty lips helped her become one of the most famous sex symbols of the century, an accomplishment that was helped out in part by her beautiful hair. Bardot typically kept her hair long, either letting it down or wearing it in a fun, bouncy 60′s updo. She’d complement these looks with gorgeous wispy, blonde bangs that typically fell to below her eyes or a bit longer. Bardot almost always parted her bangs directly down the middle, letting them lightly sweep out to either side and frame her face. Sometimes, Bardot would leave a few pieces of her bangs much longer on the outside edge of her face, making the framing effect even greater. Perhaps one of the best known haircuts with bangs, it has been endlessly copied since it was first spotted.

These three ladies are, of course, only a small fraction of the millions of women that have worn a great cut with bangs, but there’s no doubt that all three wore some of the most memorable bangs haircuts ever. On top of being massively influential in their respective fields, these women (literally) shaped the way that an incalculable number of women would wear bangs, and we think the world of hair is much better off for it! If you’re thinking about bangs for your own hair, you simply can’t go wrong by imitating one of these classic beauties, so pick a look and bring it on into the Salon for a knockout fringe cut.
