From Halloween costumes to the latest in food and drink, Pinterest has been known to predict many a hot trend. Based on what people are searching and pinning, the creative social network can tell us what’s bound to get big, and that includes hairstyles. According to Byrdie, it’s a vintage inspired ‘do that’s on everyone’s minds right now — so much so that there’s been a 600 per cent increase in pins of the look. The hairstyle in question? “Curtain bangs.”
You might recognize the style from OG curtain bangers like Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin and Francoise Hardy. The style, which is basically bangs that are parted in some way (usually an effortless part right down the middle), has fallen back into fashion many times before and it looks like another resurgence is coming.
But it’s not only leading ladies and songstresses of the past that favour this chic hairstyle. Recent incarnations of the trend have been seen on Rihanna, Halle Berry, Selena Gomez and Alexa Chung.
