Bold, beautiful bangs are bigger than ever this season. Celebs like Naomi Campbelland Nicki Minaj are rocking this hot new trend, and you can, too. Whether you want to achieve Naomi Campbell’s sleek, choppy signature bangs or Nicki Minaj’s big, bold bangs, you may want to opt for a temporary look first.
Celebrity hairstylist Elethia Smith recommends using a fake clip-on hair piece to try the look out. That way, if the bang look doesn’t work for you, you can simply take it off. Here are three easy steps you can use to recreate this fabulous look without making the commitment.
1) Make sure you flat-iron your hair until it matches the texture of the fake-hair piece. For the best results, use Thermastrength Style Serum by Mizani ($19.99). This lightweight leave-in conditioner coats and protects your hair from heat damage.
2) Separate a good amount of hair for your bangs. You don’t want them to be too thick or too thin.
3) Ask your stylist to rough-cut the hair piece with a razor, not scissors. If you’re going for Naomi’s look, leave your bangs straight and sleek. For Nicki Minaj’s signature bangs, use a curling iron to curl the ends under.
