Whether worn classically elegant or discreetly edgy, the A-list never fail to show us how it can be rocked best. So, to get your next style fix, see how the glitterati are working it for yourself, below!
6 reasons you should try ombre hair with bangs
1. Because it’s Victoria’s Secret-approved
When a Victoria’s Secret model makes a mane move, we all take note. We already copy their signature beachy waves, but just like the rest of us, they too get the urge to switch up their mane once in a while. And that’s exactly what angel Behati Prinsloo did when she chose this ombre hair with bangs style.
2. And red carpet-ready, too!
For her most recent red carpet appearance, the star paired her fancy, feathery bangs with a romantic wavy ponytail, which you can see has delicious, caramel dip-dyed ends thrown in. Now that’s a sweet treat we can get on board with!
Editor’s tip: Want to make your bangs look as textured and cool as Dakota’s? All you have to do is spritz the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray on them, before ruffling your fringe and styling it into place.
3. The fringe options are endless
Fringes are great way to update your look, but don’t rush into it without thinking about the right fringe style for your face shape. From bold blunt ones to feathery micro fringes, there are variety of unique bang styles waiting for you.
One of favourite celebrity ombre hair with bangs combos? This one perfectly demonstrated by Kat Graham. As you can see, she rocks her blonde ombre style with piecey, It girl-worthy bangs and seriously slays.
4. You can go as wild as you want
Everyone knows that the ombre technique is made for those who adore experimenting with hair colours. Just look at how Kristina Bazan pairs a mermaid-esque blue ombre with long split bangs, and then you’ll understand what we mean — dreamy, right?
Editor’s tip: If you’re thinking of colouring your hair, remember to pick a wash and care system formulated for coloured tresses.

Think having a pixie haircut means you can’t get in on the ombre hair with bangs trend? Well, Evan Rachel Wood is here to remind you that you can totally slay this trend.
Spotted on the red carpet, the star opted for a gorgeous grey ombre dye job and paired it with the sleekest side bangs ever, making for an elegant and killer style combo.
6. No matter how you style it, you’ll look chic
And last but certainly not least, the biggest reason you should go for an ombre + bangs look is because you’ll look effortlessly styled 24-7! And if we could pick one celebrity who nails it most, it would have to be Cappie Pondexter.
Not only has she gone for the most popular bangs around (yes, all face shapes can pull off side bangs!), but she has also paired the look with a striking dark blonde ombre and tousled curls. Yes, girl, yes!
