Nicole Richie’s husband Joel Madden was kidding when he posted this old photo of her and Twittered, “Is it not Ron Perlman circa Beauty and the Beast??” He also said that photo was why he loved her, which is cute. But curly bangs, to many women, are not. (Of course, as evidenced above, SJP was rocking the look way before Miss Richie was even born.) After many moons as a beauty editor, and as someone who has personally yearned to rock Marianne Faithfull bangs despite naturally wavy hair, I have this advice: If you have wavy or curly hair, perhaps bangs are not for you. I know that’s lame news, but it comes straight from a variety of stylist’s mouths. Sure, you could get a pricey, damaging perma-straightening treatment done or carry a flat iron at all times, but that’s no way to live. Although, if your hair is not too wavy, you can cop my friend’s trick and sleep with your bangs wrapped around a single, large curler, which creates one smooth veil of hair. But curly hair types, take heart: Natural texture is so hot right now.
