Farrah Faucett may be gone, but she will never, ever be forgotten. She made the feathered and frosty look so popular, an iconic hairstyle that continues to live on. Even though frosty tips are no longer hip, feathered bangs are back. What is the best way to get bangs to feather just so? Here are some helpful hints and tips to make this a hairstyle you won’t have to visit the salon to achieve. Before you decide to feather your bangs, you will want to know that there is not just one style of feathered bangs. Here are 5 feathered hairstyles you could choose from.
Feathered Bangs. This is very popular and very easy to maintain. Leave your salon with confidence and create the feathered bang look at home. The secret weapon? Use a flat iron to style bangs away from your forehead, starting at the ends. This is best for bangs that are all one length.
Feathered Layers. Instead of just one length of bangs, this hairstyle requires different lengths. This is done to give the hairstyle movement, a flip that flies. Similar to feathered bangs, feathered layers are styled with a flat iron, starting at the ends. The length of the bangs should start at the cheek bone and end at the jaw.
The Lob. If you are a tennis player, this swift movement is sharp and powerful. As a hairstyle, the look is also very sharp and powerful. A cousin of the “bob, the lob has more length and ends at the shoulders. For more texture and movement, your stylist can cut layers around the eyes and forehead.
Side Swept Bangs. Twiggy made this look popular in the 1960s. Today, this look has
been updated and instead of the spray to stay, no movement
style, today’s version has the hair loose and more natural. A curling iron is a nice styling tool to add a fun, flirty flip at the ends.
Classic Feathered Hairstyle. Again, we have Farrah’s hairstylist to thank for this look. Today’s version has hair in longer layers and flipped away from the face in longer sections. This hairstyle continues to look fantastic parted down the middle and away from the face.
