Looking for the next big thing? Here's the Micro Bang...

Wednesday, 22 October 2014 21:12

Lady Gaga stepped out in Manchester Monday with a hairstyle quite similar to Beyonce's "micro bang"... Could this be the new trend in fringe?

Chosen by Refinery29 as the 'Best Bang Trim' in Chicago, celebrity hairstylist and owner of George the Salon, George Gonzalez, is a great expert on all things fringe! "The 'micro bang' is a bold statement cut and the right amount of texture is key to pull them off," explains George Gonzalez. "There are a few elements to consider before you take the plunge. If your hairline is dense, a bang like this can look fantastic. With a choppy, short fringe, you also can't ignore natural cowlicks. If a client has too many, they should consider the amount of work they will need to do daily to smooth them out. Plus, do you feel comfortable accentuating features like your forehead and eyebrows?"

Do: Bring pictures just in case you cannot find what you want in the salon magazines.

Don't: Go too short. It is best to start gradually cutting. Your stylist can always take more off.

Do: Sit and discuss your hair before you get sent back to get shampooed. Make sure your stylist connects with you and understands your needs. Don't be afraid to say "no" that's not what I mean. It is a stylist's responsibility to understand your language and what you are describing when it comes to your hair, especially for a drastic cut like this.
