WHO ELSE IS GOING GAGA CRAZY OVER THE CURTAIN FRINGE & IS IT STAR WORTHY? Seen GRAZIA Australia

Why We’re Going Gaga For The Curtain Fringe

On the seemingly never-ending, global press junket for A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga had many a beauty look. From the frosted lids in LA to her spectacular navy cat eye in Toronto, she rose to the occasion like the (beauty) star she is. And when it came to Gaga’s hair, there was a little bit of everything – from ’90s blow-outs to sculptural up ‘dos – Gaga’s famous peroxide locks were fashioned up, down, even sideways. But there was one hairstyle which kept popping up on late night couches and magazine covers alike – the curtain fringe.

Parted straight down the middle and flared at the ends, the curtain fringe is an old Hollywood classic. First there was the Bardot. Then the Kinski. Then JLO came to the party, favouring a little fringe-y flick in the ’90s (and beyond). Sienna Miller repped the style in the early noughties. While Alexa Chung punk-ed it out in the latter half of the decade, taking it from va-va-voom to London cool. Then of course the glamorous progenies – Kaia Gerber, Dakota Johnson and Bella Hadid – all of whom have drawn the curtains of late. And now Lady Gaga has the style on repeat, finished off with a top-knot.

Fronting Variety’s December issue, Gaga’s curtain bangs were front and centre; long, sweeping and soft at the edges. Haus of Gaga hairstylist Frederic Aspirias kept the drapes feathery and light on the ends, flicking them upwards with a certain Carol Brady kick, while pulling the rest of her platinum hair into a high bun.

It was a similar case in New York when Gaga appeared on the Late Show, although her Big Apple bangs were slightly messier and shaggier around her face.

And who could forget that spectacular A Star Is Born premiere in London in the archival McQueen gown. Shorter in the middle, the pieces fell longer around the bottom of the jaw framing her face (and the top-knot was taken down a notch and dressed up as a chic chignon).

Back home, celebrity and editorial stylist Anthony Nader loves a little bang. “The curtain fringe is def my go-to for those girls who want that little extra sexy flutter of cuteness and mystery,” says Nader. It’s also a great way to disguise any wrinkles, “if you’re worried about frown lines on your forehead….guess what? They get camouflaged behind fab drapes!” And for those with longer facial features, “the curtain has your name all over it. This shape will narrow the face in more, especially if your forehead is wide.”

Thanks to Lady Gaga, the curtain fringe goes bang once more. But consider these tips before drawing the curtains.

5 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE YOU GO BANG 
• You want to make sure your new feature (that’s your new bangs, of course) is looking 100% red carpet worthy. So you need to make sure they are super smooth and polished
• On damp hair use a tiny amount of medium-hold, luxe styling mousse as you want to give your bangs some “airiness”, without them looking dry and brittle – the effect a sea salt spray would achieve
• Use a medium-sized, round brush with loads of boar bristles as it takes the pain out of smoothing the roughest of hair strands to look shiny and glam
• Make sure your hairdryer has a narrow nozzle attached on the end, as this narrows down the air flow directly on the target area, to sculpt your curtain fringe
• If you have a stubborn cowlick (which unfortunately most of us do), when you’re blowing out your bangs, you need to drag / stretch down your sections in the compete opposite direction. By using this method, your curtain bangs will look symmetrical and not like they had an all-nighter…#NotCool

WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN IT COMES TO CUT?
According to Mr Nader – who has cut the locks of Cate Blanchett and Miranda Kerr in the past – the biggest mistake middle-aged women make is ‘growing their hair longer and keeping it at that length’.
He said there’s no point having long hair if you’re going to spend most of your time ‘pulling it all back into a ponytail or knotty ball’.
Mr Nader advocates going into the salon with some form of pictorial reference, and – as you get older – asking for some ‘lightly scattered layers around the face’.
‘As you get older your face appears less plump and more angular,’ he said.
‘If you’re used to brushing your hair back away from your face, try directing it a little bit more towards the face so you have some framing and your bone structure softens.
‘You can even try a sweeping fringe that curtains just below your eyebrows if you have deep-set forehead wrinkles.’

 

TIPS FOR MIDDLE-AGED WOMEN’S HAIR
* Mr Nader recommends avoiding getting stuck in a hair rut.
* ‘The biggest mistake middle-aged women make is growing their hair longer and keeping it at that length.’
* He said it’s a good idea to go to a salon with some form of pictorial hair reference, and to ask for some ‘lightly scattered layers around the face’.
* Layers can enhance your complexion and take years off your face.
* Mr Nader said you should direct hair towards your face so it has framing and your bone structure softens.
* Countless stylists also recommend you try not to fall into the ‘blondeitis’ trap of too many highlights.
* Mr Nader recommends never asking for one block colour.
* Another mistake he frequently sees is when women overload their locks with too much product.

WHAT ABOUT COLOUR?
With regard to colour, Mr Nader admits its easy to fall into the ‘blondeitis’ trap of beginning with a few highlights and ending up full-on brassy blonde.
‘Blonde will always be huge business, and as a salon owner I’d say more than 70 per cent of our clients are looking to venture over to the light, bright side,’ he said.
‘One of my golden rules when colouring hair is to never have just one block colour, as this not only looks harsh, but it also doesn’t define texture and movement.’
‘Ask which complimentary tones would suit the colour you’ve chosen and you’ll notice that your complexion doesn’t appear as harsh.’
If you want to go grey, Mr Nader said by all means do, but he said ‘keep it looking chic ladies as there’s a fine line here’.
The hair stylist recommends using a cosmetic silver shampoo once a week to ensure your greys are silvery and stylish.

Big mistake: ‘Countless women overload their strands with unnecessary products which weigh the hair down,’ Mr Nader said (pictured: Jennifer Lopez and Julianne Moore)

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET HOME?
The attention to your hair shouldn’t stop when you leave the salon, Mr Nader said.
You need to be caring for your hair at home, too.
‘One of the biggest mistakes I see with middle-aged women is that they overload their strands with unnecessary products which weigh the hair down and give the illusion of looking dull and lacklustre,’ he said.
Instead, make sure you’re using the right amount of shampoo, conditioner and product for your hair length to keep it light and bouncy.
Mr Nader also recommends approaching your hair as you do your make-up application when you get home:
‘With a thinning, ageing face, your hair needs to “fill in the gaps,”‘ he said.
‘For instance, if your jawline is appearing to be more slender, you might want to have more hair floating around this area.’

1. No need to wash your hair and head straight (no pun intended) for your can of dry shampoo to give your strands more grip.
Spray on the roots and massage in and brush through with a large paddle brush from roots to ends.
2. Work in your desired partline then clip the whole front section away so you can mould the back section.
3. Create a low ponytail and make a few tails and twist each one low into the nape area and pin to secure.
4. Unclip the front section now, twist one side first starting your twist right up on the forehead and directing a tight shape down towards the bundle of twisted tails at the back and pin to secure. For extra shine now add your shine hairspray.

JENNIFER LOPEZ
Jennifer Lopez looked every bit the Hollywood A-lister in her stand-out yellow form-fitting gown with a saucy slit up one side, paired with dazzling shoes and jewellery.

1. On freshly washed hair apply your Volumizing spray and light weight sheen spray all over and rake through then blast 80% dry.
2. Place in your sweeping off centered part and divide hair into four even sections. Start off by blowing out the front sections with your large round brush so the hair doesn’t sit flat-to-the-head. Then do the same with the back section splicing up the hair to blow dry the hair easier and do this all the way up to the crown.
3. For extra oomph now grab at least eight medium sized hot rollers and wind them in all away from your face to ensure beautiful soft ripples of tumbling waves.
4. Remember though to wait for the rollers to cool right down so your Hollywood waves will last longer and then spray your hair all over with your hairspray.

AMY ADAMS
Amy Adams opted for a tangerine Versace gown with embellishments around the waist and the length of the skirt.
The star kept it simple yet elegant with her lightly tousled and beautifully classic waves as she hit the red carpet.

1. Make sure you start off by washing your tresses with a shine factor shampoo and conditioner for extra glam and shake your mane 80% dry so you not wasting time here.
2. Douse your strands in a volumizing foam all over then comb through. Divide hair up into two sections, clip the top half away and start blowing out the underneath section with your medium size round brush which gives extra volume.
3. Now you have completed the underneath section, blowout the top section and mould your hair to work away from your face to highlight your facial features.
4. For added voluminous waves grab your medium size barrel tongs and wind vertical sections all the way to the ends to create cascading supple waves.
Keep your new glam hair in place and brush out the waves a little then spray all over to last the night.

NATALIE DORMER
Natalie Dormer wore a crimson, hand-pleated gown by J. Mendel with a stunning embroidered neckline.
The English actress shook things up with a messy ponytail, adding some edge to her classic look.

Skip the washing of your hair here as you need your strands more dirtier rather than silky clean.
2. Sprinkle some dry shampoo powder in on your roots and then place in your center part.
3. Brush over your low ponytail but not so it looks stuck down and more on the natural side and secure the base of the tail low.
4. Brush the tail smooth so it’s soft and romantic in appearance.
Let the whispies around your face fall out so the hairstyle looks more modern now and not old fashioned

KELTIE KNIGHT
Keltie Knight stunned in an emerald Nina gown from Walter Collection.
The figure-hugging dress sat elegantly off the shoulders, and she teamed the design with diamonds from Michael John Jewelry.
She completed her look with a classic side-swept style, perfectly complementing her eye-popping gown.

1. After washing your hair apply your firm hard mousse all over and comb through from roots to ends. Pop your head over as this is easiest to dry your hair off quicker and use your hairdryer to blast dry.
2. Divide hair into four even sections and starting at the back, smoothing out the hair with maximum volume and curving the ends with your brush.
Once the back is complete now apply the same method to the front half and maximizing volume.
3. Now to make it easier take the same four sections and method, then grab your medium size hot tongs and wind sections starting at the nape area (approx 2 inches) horizontal as this maximizes volume and finishing at the front hairline.
4. Once tonged and cooled down, glide over your waves with your brush to smooth over and give your strands a spray to keep in place.
