Commitment-free bangs? Where do we sign up?! 

London designer Han Chong's Self-Portrait collection debuted at New York Fashion Week. Chong's designs were colorful, current and ultra feminine. To play up the collection's aesthetic, Bumble and bumble editorial stylist Jimmy Paul created hair to contrast the romantic-looking clothes.

"Every single girl has a bang covering one eye," Paul said. "We wanted to off-set the clothes which are super feminine...[the hair is] very androgynous, very uniform."

To style, Paul blew out hair using All-Style Blow Dry and then flat ironed straight. He tied hair into a low ponytail and secured with a hair bungee at the nape. Next, he used Thickening Full Form Mousse to smooth away any flyaways and finished with Classic Hairspray.

"We wanted a simple yet powerful way to offset very feminine looks," Paul said. "I used House Of European Hair virgin European 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 girl."

The virgin European Clip-On Bangs are unprocessed and made of genuine 100 percent virgin European hair. The bangs can be highlighted, colored and recolored multiple times, styled or permed, without loosing quality.
