HOW TO: Blunt Bang from Odile Gilbert

Jan Hillenmeyer | February 19, 2013 | 1:27 PM

Odile Gilbert created a totally new take on fringe with her arsenal of Kérastase Paris products at the Thakoon Fall 2013 show at New York Fashion Week. The squared-off bangs were paired with casual-but-chic chignons.


Prep damp hair with Kérastase Spray Volumactive and Mousse Substantive to add texture.

Blow dry hair using a diffuser, scrunching the lengths as you work through the head.

Smooth hair down and back with a brush and spray Kérastase Double Force Hair Spray.

Gather hair into a ponytail at the back of the head and secure with an elastic band, weaving the lengths through the elastic to create a slightly undone chignon.

Tuck remaining ends into the elastic, pin in place and spray Double Force ControleUltime to keep chignon in place.

For a very modern and dramatic effect, apply a bang extension and cut the extension in a short, unique style that best suits the face.

Secure the extension close to the hair line and spray with more Double Force ControleUltime.
