Guess whose boarded the bangs train? Yep, model Behati Prinsloo got bangs and the result is totally bangin'. Prinsloo's bangs have a bit of a twist, too! She opted for some extra looooooong fringe. The Victoria's Secret runway walker and wife of rocker/The Voice coach Adam Levine showed off her new 'do, featuring past-the-brow, face-framing fringe, paired with long, textured waves, via Instagram. Her hair is too long to be called "shaggy," but the loose, messy texture is the just-rolled-outta-bed kind of sexy that often requires quite a bit of product, like salt sprays, to achieve.
Prinsloo is certainly channeling the '60s bangs brigade — think Marianne Faithfull and Jean Shrimpton — with her piecey fringe. It's so effortless and mysterious, since the length hits the eyelashes and obscures the eyes a tiny bit. I have bangs and I tend to go above the brow, like Bettie Page, since it's youthful and while I dig the longer fringe, the hair in my eyes starts driving me nuts. But I love the look before it starts making me think about self-administering a trim.
Another thing I find so tres chic about Prinsloo's hairstyle is the ombre color. It's blended perfectly, so it appears natural and without much obvious demarcation. Talk about seamless shading!
Check out her new sexy and glam-sual look below. Prinsloo is a perfect example of the transformative power of bangs. The style can totally revamp a look and a 'do.
The honeyed hue pairs perfectly with her scarlet lips, too.
Thumbs up on the bangs, Ms. Prinsloo! You should totally keep those babies.
