At the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, Penelope Cruz made us do a double-take when she sported piecey, above-the-brow fringe on a Saturday (left) and then five days later, the cute bangs were nowhere to be found (right). We couldn't help asking her hairstylist Andy LeCompte if he employed a few faux pieces to created the adorable look. "Guilty!" LeCompte wrote. "I created a piece to give Penelope a short Audrey Hepburn-esque fringe, without the commitment of growing it out if she didn't like it." If you're like us, then you were wild about the look. LeCompte's advice for trying a similarly sneaky technique at home? "Get a great piece that matches your hair color exactly—and have your stylist cut them." Wise words, indeed.
