The most modern hairstyles at the moment on social networks are long curtain bangs, as Americans call them “curtain bangs”, and their popularity is evidenced by the fact that more than 90 million videos can be found on Tik Tok under this hashtag!
Bangs like this are nothing new. As far back as the 1960s, they were worn by one of the most beautiful women ever, Brigitte Bardot, and have long been the epitome of French chic and nonchalance.
In France, women have been faithful to them for decades, which is no wonder – this type of hairstyle rejuvenates, is easy to style, and fits almost all ladies well.
Thanks to TikTok, they have now become the ultimate hit around the world, even among the younger generation. These are longer, asymmetrically cut bangs, which are split in the middle, frame the face, and merge with the rest of the hair.
These bangs are not a radical change, because they do not require daily blow-drying and styling, but you can also remove them behind the ears or let them fall casually while the rest of your hair is in a ponytail, braid, or bun.
Another advantage of curl bangs is that they are a rewarding choice for every length and type of hair.
By the way, the famous actress Brigitte Bardot celebrated her 85th birthday yesterday.
Her style is considered by many to be timeless, and her secret can be summed up in 7 points:
Sometimes the simplest clothing combinations are the most seductive. Brigitte Bardot’s sex appeal never depended on the depth of her cleavage. Her attractiveness was not the result of provocative dress, but of her attitude, thanks to which she looked attractive in the most ordinary trapeze and T-shirt.
Stripes in each combination. The popular Breton T-shirt (white or beige with dark horizontal stripes) is a piece of clothing that has become synonymous with French fashion. She was also adored by Brigitte who always wore it in combination with long or short pants of all colors and patterns.
Ballet dancers are the law. If anyone is responsible for the global popularity of ballet dancers, it is Brigitte. In 1956, the actress asked the French fashion brand Repetto to produce a special shoe resembling ballet slippers, and so a model of ballet flats named Cendrillon was born, who is adored by women around the world today.
A hat is a must-have in any wardrobe. The actress has proven many times that there is no combination that a good hat will not lift. She loved striking models with a large brim that she wore everywhere – on the beach and on the red carpet.
Invest in one bombastic cocktail dress and wear it often. You don’t need a wardrobe full of dresses, for the wow effect, one is enough that you will always be faithful to, complement it and change it with new fashion accessories. This was also done by Brigitte, who always returned to the narrow knee-length model that emphasized her figure.
The ultimate Bardot neckline. Although because of her roles we remember her as an extremely sexy woman, in her private life she did not cultivate a provocative style of dress. While other actresses emphasized their cleavage, Brigite emphasized the other part of the body and is credited with popularizing the so-called Bardot cut, ie. bare shoulders.
Nurture your distinctive hairstyle and make-up. During the 60s and 70s, Brigitte was truly recognizable for her hairstyle and makeup. She wore long loose waves tamed by a hairband or a casual bun with bangs and a parting combed in the middle. Her make-up was always simple – she used a shower to draw a cat line on her eyelids.
