An ode to Sabrina Carpenter’s bangs

An ode to Sabrina Carpenter’s bangs
We’re a salon – and nation – currently obsessed with Sabrina Carpenter’s bangs – the singer has the most searched fringe on Google in the last few months. Versatile and flattering, Sabrina’s bangs are loved for a reason. Here are a few reasons why they work.

The shape

A great example of curtain bangs that can be worn in different ways, Sabrina’s longer fringe graduates nicely into the rest of her cut, so she can wear them both pushed to the side or more full frontal. Skimming the side of her eyes, they draw attention to her high cheekbones and eye-line.

Their versatility

As Sabrina proves, getting bangs cut in doesn’t have to spell the end of chic up-dos and longer looks – they work just as well when her hair is pulled up as they do when it’s down. The beauty of a curtain bang like hers is that they are long enough to be played around with but still add detail to the front of a hairstyle. They can also be styled in different ways – sometimes she wears them straighter and wispier, others she prefers a more curled appearance. All of them work well.

The colour

That flaxen blonde hair colour lends an extra level of dimension and shine to Sabrina’s bangs, but it’s key – of course – to keep a blonde shade like this in optimal health. As well as nourishing masks, a priming, heat-protecting product, like our Almost Everything Cream, is perfect for this.

How to get the look

Styling bangs like Sabrina’s is easier than you might think. Luke’s top tip is to start by rough drying the hair forwards, then prepping the hair with some Almost Everything Cream. “Then, take a medium Hershesons Pro Blow Dry Brush and use it to blow dry the hair forwards, in front of the face,” he says. “Then all you have to do is part the hair with your hands, which will give you that nice sweep.” And for the perfect cut? Book in with Dale, Gemma, Conor, Neale or Grace in salon.
