With a hairdryer and brush, it is possible to style the fringe in different ways.
Some people think that once cut, the bangs will “behave” the same way every day. The good news for owners of shorter strands under their foreheads is that with the help of a brush, a hairdryer, and a fixing spray, it is possible to vary in moments between straight fringe, curtain style, and the model that resembles a comma. By changing the shape of the fringe, it is possible to change the face of the entire look.
To tame the shorter strands, it takes little skill and some equipment that can help you reach the desired outfit. Check out the tips to style the bangs in the style of the famous Emma Stone, Zooey Deschanel, and Alexa Chung.
A STRIPE CHALLENGE BY ZOOEY DESCHANEL
One of the most common fringe models, the straight model, can work with yarns of various sizes; which can set the tone for the modern style of the character Amélie Poulain, and the retro look of Zooey Deschanel. More versatile, Zooey’s hairstyle can be done with the help of a dryer; a velcro bob (about five cm in diameter), and a light fixing spray.
Spray the spray with a moderate hold on the damp fringe and dry the strands, positioning the dryer – with the air directing nozzle – above the top of the head. The hot air should start from top to bottom, following the direction of hair growth.
With the strands still warm, attach the bob to the fringe so that the strand makes a downward curve towards the forehead. Wait a few minutes, remove the bob and lightly press the bangs on the forehead. This way of drying the fringe is great for those who already have the longest strands, but do not want to give up the straight look.
ALEXA CHUNG’S “CURTAIN” FRINGE
Style icon, model Alexa Chung plays a lot with the shape of her bangs; but her brand is the look known as a curtain. Where the wires are separated by side wicks.
To copy the style, use a medium round brush (about seven cm in diameter). And after parting the wet fringe in half, dry each side separately; wrapping the brush with the strands towards the forehead to the ears.
Finish with a moderate-setting spray.

This fringe model is perfect for owners with round faces or “heart” shapes.
EMMA STONE’S COMMA BANGS
Between colorings that make her red and the platinum hair of the character Gwen Stacy from the Spiderman film series; Emma Stone shows that her favorite fringe model is the side.
The actress parades glamorous hairstyles with the threads that cover her forehead even on red carpets.
Get inspired by the “comma” style and repeat the look at home with the help of a thin comb, hair clips, and hairdryer.
To start, with damp hair, comb the bangs to the side you want. To help seat the new or unruly strands, use a styling mousse. Pull the end of the strand that forms the fringe, make a little loop – like a comma – and secure it to the side of the head with staples. Wait a few minutes and remove the staples.
The side bangs favor square faces and match all hair lengths.
