How-To: Razor Cut Bangs

Self-Portrait Fall/Winter 2016 hair by Bb.Editorial Stylist Jimmy Paul

Designer Direction/Hair Inspiration: Romanticism with an attitude. Clip-in bangs were razor cut on all the models for uniformity.

"We just tried a bunch of different things and we wanted to have a uniformity with the girls," said Bb.Editorial Stylist Jimmy Paul. "Bangs are a great way to do that, they have everyone looking similar."

Styling Methods: Apply Bb.Gel into hands and pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with elastic, creating a loop in the hair and allowing the rest of the ponytail to fall. For added shine, apply more Bb.Gel. Attach a clip-in bang and dampen with Prep. Each bang was razor cut to personalize the look to each model.

Products Used: Bb.Gel, Prep
