The big 'bang' obsession!



Mumbai, April 10 -- They are back with a bang and playing style saviours for Bollywood beauties. Straightened, trimmed and uneven - bangs or fringes are the new buzzword in town.

The quicktrans form solution has always been a hit, and currently, actors like Anushka Sharma, Freida Pinto, Genelia D'Souza and Sameera Reddy are sporting them.

"It's the easiest way to transform your look. For those who don't want to cut the length or try anything drastic, it's perfect. Straight bangs, teardrop bangs and a really short fringe - reminiscent of the '60s - are hot right now," says Ambika Pillai, hair and beauty expert. "We get a lot of customers, especially college students, who want to try bangs. The experimental kinds are going for notched bangs, which are asymmetric and uneven at the bottom," says beauty expert Aashmeen Munjaal. Indeed, tress transformation helps mould one's entire look, and stylist Rick Roy agrees.

"The young brigade is bridging the gap between on-screen and real-life fashion. The Madhuri Dixit-style big locks was once the only trend, but now the stars experiment more and hairstyle adds character to their looks," he says.
