Katy Perry's Blunt Bangs
If there's any beauty tips we want to snag, it's from the women of Maxim's Hot 100 List. Clawing her way to the top this year is none other than Katy Perry — yes, the girl with the light-up dress at the Met Ball.
You don't have to kiss a girl like Perry did to get attention (unless that's your thing) — her style alone makes people's heads turn. We love Perry because her look is always evolving. From short and sassy to long with waves, the girl is not afraid to change it up.
One staple that rarely seems to leave Perry's face is her blunt, straight-across bangs. This edgy style brings great shape to her face. If you want a similar bang to Perry's, ask your stylist to cut your hair when it's dry, so she doesn't chop too much off in the front. If it's your first time, get them slightly longer, right above the eyebrows, to transition into the world of blunt bangs. For a textured look, wash every other day and apply a dry shampoo, fraying with your fingers. For a sleeker look, blow-dry straight and flat-iron for high gloss.
Trying to grow out your bangs? Gather them straight back, twist, and fasten with a bobby pin a few inches back from your forehead, says stylist David Dieguez. When they start to get a bit longer, you can sweep them to one side and use the same trick.
