How to get the perfect beveled bangs?
Sam Villa, Founding Partner of the Sam Villa brand and Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue, has a trick for creating a perfect beveled fringe as polished as Mara’s.
- Place a fringe section in the teeth of a fine tooth comb
- Horizontally place the Sam Villa SLEEKR flat iron around the section at the base and slowly rotate the iron down and under without closing. Since the iron is round, the heated hair takes on the beveled shape.
Note: The heat from the open iron is enough to alter the hair bonds to reform, closing the iron can create a crease.
