If a flirty fringe is your thing, then look no further for style inspiration than this photo of actress Sanaa Lathan. Clipped short to barely graze the brows, “The Perfect Guy” starlet’s blunt bangs frame the face perfectly without distracting from the simple lines of her sleek tresses. The key is to hit the perfect length that reveals graceful brows—without exposing too much of the forehead (otherwise you’ll stray into retro style territory!). Hint: Give bangs’ ends a slight curve, shaping fringes to brush brows’ arches then slightly tapering bangs downward, following the lines of eyebrows. Got it? Great!
