Beauty Fix: How to style your hair like Carly Rae Jepsen, a new eyeliner trick for summer and the only makeup you need to pack for a vacation
I feel like I’m always doing the same thing with my long hair. Can you give me some options for a new summer look?
Adding a fringe bang is not necessarily a new solution, but it’s your best bet for the easiest way to change up your hairstyle. Fringe bangs are fairly low-commitment and frame your face in a whole new way. To get the look right, ask your stylist to trim your bangs as wide as your temples with a length that hits at the bottom of your brows—any narrower may look dated, and any shorter may come off a little Rooney Mara-esque. I’ve loved the look on Leighton Meester for ages and Carly Rae Jepsen’s long, blunt bangs made her stand out at this weekend’s Billboard Music Awards. Styled sleek and straight, Jepsen’s bangs stood out on the red carpet and seemed to glisten like glass. Add ample shine to your own hair with a glossy topcoat like Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine ($24, aveda.com). Another style option (and this works with or without bangs) is to let your hair dry into natural, beach-y waves. Spritz Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($24, bumbleandbumble.com) into damp hair and you’re ready to go. And a third option—which is also ideal on hot summer days—is twisting your hair into a top knot, leaving your bangs out to anchor the style.
