The Spring 2013 Ready to Wear runways were chock-full of a hairstyling trend we like to called ‘faux-fringe’ – which is just a sneaky way of styling hair to make it look like a client has bangs without actually committing to the cut. We’ve collected a few model-inspired looks to try out on clients that are curious.
The fastest way to show a client what potential bangs could look like is taken from looks at Eudon Choi and Chloe, where hair was set in a deep part and swept across the forehead. This styling trick is also perfect to try in an updo.
Natural, carefree hair is in, and at Jonathon Saunders, longer strands were allowed to fall in front of models’ faces. If clients are open to having somewhat shorter layers in the front, this can be another option to let them play with the feeling of having fringe while still having a versatile style.
Another styling trick from Prada’s show is to create an updo and flip or push ends forward to create a jagged faux fringe (almost like a reverse mullet – business in the back and party in the front). This style will work on your fashionable clients and give them an idea of what bangs could look like on them.
