Spring has sprung with a bang--literally. The latest trend sweeping Hollywood hair salons focuses on fringe that accentuates, sculpts and frames the face.

The chic silhouette of bangs enhances eyes and cheek bones. The versatile look can be worn as side swept, super short, lash tickling, geometric or wispy. It also helps hide perceived flaws, such as childhood scars, a high forehead or frown lines.

Make a style statement without saying a word. See how Angelina Jolie, Lea Michele and Emma Stone rock head-turning bangs. We've also included the best shampoos, conditioners, serums, thermal protectors and tools to help maintain the look.
