  • THE LOOK Eyelash-grazing bangs
  • HOW-TO Lea Michele's stylist Mark Townsend began by adding mousse to her damp hair. He blow-dried her strands with a large round brush, but used a flat brush on her fringe-avoid "puffy '80s bangs." He rubbed frizz control cream into his hands and raked his fingers through her locks to distribute the product and give her hair texture and shine.
  • INSIDER TRICK Adjust the fringe to make sure the length is right for you. "They can lay straight across or be side-swept," says Townsend. "Ask for long layers throughout and face-framing layers starting at the chin."
