copy-cat her hair: FRENCH GIRL CHIC

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR 'FRINGE-PIRATION', YOU CAN GO PAST THE VERY-GORGEOUS JANE BIRKIN'S PERFECTLY TOUSLED BANGS... 
Like all French women she has killer, seemingly effortless hair – which is why I was so excited to discover some tricks on how to channel her french-girl-chic fringe:

STEP 1: The trick to styling a relaxing fringe is to start with a smoothing product on damp hair to help control flyaways and frizz. If you have fine hair, use a small amount of cream. For thicker hair, try a lightweight oil.

STEP 2: Use a medium round brush to straighten the front sections of your hair and to add a tiny amount of bend once the direction is established.

STEP 3: Finish the look with shine spray to add gloss, but without hold since you want the look to have movement. Also, use a dry shampoo if you have oily hair to keep the look going for a few days.
