Curtain Bangs a la Brigitte Bardot Are Making a Comeback

In addition to being known as one of the first people to sport a bikini in a film (and for some questionable politics), Brigitte Bardot is also credited with making bangs popular back in the day. Specifically, curtain bangs. Her perfectly coiffed center-parted fringe became so iconic that it was due for a comeback.

According to Pinterest, “curtain bangs” searches are up a whopping 600 percent. In other words, bangs that provide a peek of forehead in the middle, like curtains drawn back (aka the Bardot). That means we’re about to see them everywhere. Several celebs are already rocking the trend and we even spotted curtain bangs on the Spring 2018 runways. And they’re surprisingly versatile. You can have them pulled close together in the center or far apart so they almost disappear into the rest of your strands — and anywhere in between.
