big bold bangs

If there was ever a time to go big with bangs, Spring 2017 is it! For the details on how to make your fringe fabulous SBH turned to Ursula Stephen, celebrity hairstylist and owner of Ursula Stephen The Salon in Brooklyn, NY (the go-to hair guru for top celebrities like Rihanna, Kerry Washington and Keyshia Cole). “Fringy bangs are a universal bang shape that works on al face shapes,” says Stephen. For more big bang pointers, check out “The Fringe Factor” story in the March/April ’17 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair (on sale now!).
