SS19 trend report: Baby bangs

Prada baby bangs trend ss19

Baby bangs are back! So sez the New York Times in its SS19 beauty trend report and Pinterest in its top 100 2019 trends round-up. Actually, I got on this one early but let’s not split hairs (lol).

Prada’s SS19 show completely nailed it with its Mia Farrow micro-fringed crops under giant hairbands (above and below), while Miu Miu followed suit with 90s Riot Grrrl choppy baby bangs tied up with a skinny bow (bottom).

I’ve been trying to grow my Cuts crop into something more mini-fringe-y, just because I noticed, as I get older and my face loses some of its fat, my features look more prominent and somewhat severe. A gamine mini fringe also draws attention to brows a la Audrey Hepburn, which can’t be a bad thing, right?

On which note, if you’re going to embrace an above-the-brows fringe, then your brows are going to be a focus. I’ve been growing mine out so they’re a bit fuller, but not too defined. I expect we’ll see another upswing in brow-centric beauty products; unbelievably I’ve yet to try Glossier Boy Brow because I’m wary of over-hypy products but I think now’s the time to investigate. Likewise, Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Brows. I usually use clear brow gel from Brow Cote or Smashbox (or the Giorgio Armani Eye and Brow Maestro if I have time), but if you have any other recs let me know…
