What's not to love? Fringe is making a huge comeback for fall, and with so many lengths, textures, and styles to choose from, you have no excuse not to hop on the bandwagon. We want to help you choose the right fringe for your face, so we surveyed the trends and put together a collection of our favorite bangs for the season.

The Heavy 
Versatile and trendy, this model-off-duty favorite will draw attention to your eyes.
Abbey Lee Kershaw, Zooey Deschanel, Irina Lazareanu,
and Katie Holmes all wear a thick bang.

The Baby
Channel your inner Betty Page with a retro baby bang, a la Rosario Dawson,
Katy Perry,or Shannyn Sossamon. Or, cut them just above the brows for
a look with less impact, like Rashida Jones.

The Side-Swept
Pretty brows and eyes will pop with a side bang. Think of it as a 'one-shoulder dress'
for your hair. Cameron Diaz, Emma Stone, Carrie Underwood,
and Keira Knightley look lovely with a side-swept style.

The Grow-Out
This trendy boho-chic style that looks amazing even if you're not actually trying to grow them out. See Alexa Chung, Nicole Richie, Ashley Olsen, and Sienna Miller for ideas.

The Asymmetric
For a unique look that will set you apart from the crowd, try an asymmetric bang.
Hayley Williams rocks an edgy version, while Haley Bennett
and Christina Aguilera opt for a softer angle.

To style bangs, blow dry straight out of the shower while they are still very wet, and brush them in the opposite direction that you want them to lay for added body (side-to-side if you wear them straight forward.) Try flat-ironing just the top layer of hair for a boost of shine, and finish with a dab of product on the ends to help hold the style and add texture.

Talk to your stylist about the look you want to customize your fringe to fit your face shape and hair texture. Our stylists recommend bang trims every 4-6 weeks. Resist the urge to do it yourself! There's no reason to scrimp - at Moko, clients receive free bang trims. So leave it to the pros!

If you're thinking about taking the plunge, come by and see us at Moko on August 3rd for our First Friday Event, Bangs Braids Brows. Consult with a stylist, or have your bangs trimmed, free of charge! We'll also be providing complementary brow consultations and hair braiding. Bring a friend, stop by, and get styled!
