Faux Fringe

One of the fringe benefits of fashion weeks? Seeing all the hot hair trends. For the Self-Portrait collection from London designer Han Chong, Bumble and bumble editorial stylist Jimmy Paul created strong, boyish and graphic hair to contrast with the romantic fashion collection. “The look is very androgynous, very uniform,” shares Paul. “Every single girl had a bang covering one eye. We wanted to off-set the clothes, which are super feminine.”

Bumble and Bumble - SS16 - Self PortaitTo style, Paul used Bb. All-Style Blow Dry and flat-ironed lengths straight. He then created a low ponytail and secured hair with a bungee at the nape. For the fringe, he used 100% virgin European hair bangs that perfectly matched the sleek, fine texture of the models’ side-parted, smoothed-down hair. “We wanted a simple yet powerful way to offset very feminine looks,’” explained Paul. “I used House Of European Hair Clip-On Bangs, my current favorite, to create a modern deconstructed edge. We just clipped them in sideways, then cut them down with a razor to tweak them on each model.” He finished with Bb. Classic Hairspray.
