1. Kerry Washington’s eye-skimming fringe

Scandal star Kerry Washington has ditched her Olivia Pope bouncy curls for a cool wavy long bob. The look is a far cry from her on-screen style, with her new ‘do providing tonnes of extra volume through the lengths, while the choppy bangs give an on-trend edge to her appearance.

2. Alexa Chung’s gappy fringe

How could we possibly do a wavy hair with bangs round up and not mention Alexa Chung?! The model, muse, writer, designer (is that everything? Yes? Good!) has made the style combo her signature look, helping to reinforce her It-girl credentials.

Editor’s tip: For Alexa’s tousled, wavy finish, we suggest spritzing your hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray. This will help to accentuate any natural waves or movement that you have, for a just-off-the-beach vibe.

The Billions actress has gone for a side fringe to wear with her light blonde curly lob. Side fringes are a great way to introduce your self into the world of bangs, as they don’t require as much maintenance as most other fringes – plus, if you don’t like the result, you can always grow out the style!

5. Lea Michele’s choppy fringe

Choppy fringes are a very popular choice for many women, as they can be styled to suit most all face shapes. So, if like Lea Michele you have thick hair, choppy bangs will help take some of that weight away; while for those with fine tresses, the cut will add some much-needed texture.

Hair chameleon Kylie Jenner has rocked so many hairstyles, it’s hard to keep up! However, one of our favourites has to be this wavy hair bangs style.

Editor’s tip: To get that wet-look effect, spritz the VO5 Classic Styling Mega Hold Gel Spray all over your waves, before scrunching your hair with your hands to help work the product in.
