When Pinterest releases data on what is the most searched interiors trends, the most searched holiday destinations or the year's most repinned wedding dress, we listen. Not only because it it is the go-to resource for moodboarding (hello "dream wedding board"), but because it's often the first place people turn when they're considering making a big purchase, or a big change — meaning the trends they clock are still that little bit ahead of the curve.
According to Byrdie, Pinterest clocked a staggering 600% rise in pins of images of "curtain bangs". What caused the sudden up-swing in this '70s inspired look? We're guessing the fact that every Brit-It girl from Alexa Chung to Suki Waterhouse to Sienna Miller has recently cut in face-framing bangs may have something to do with it.
The defining features of "curtain bangs"? A long, tapered fringe that graduates down to the top of your cheekbones. The look is definitely relaxed, giving off an effortless 'I'm-growing-out-my-fringe-but-this-in-between-stage-happens-to-look-great' vibe. The best way to style is to opt for a middle part, keep the texture laissez-faire with plenty of sea salt spray, and a healthy dose of French girl insouciance.
