Nothing says fresh start like new hair and one person who literally started 2014 with a bang was model Joan Smalls, who aired her mega-Noughties blunt fringe at Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s NYE party. Meanwhile British singer Foxes, performing in Las Vegas over New Year, never fails to induce bang pangs with her bouncy 60s-style blow-dry. So which will you go for if you’re thinking of a fresh-start fringe? Let’s talk maintenance:

Joan Smalls' blunt bangs: Straying far from your straighteners is brave unless you've had some kind of chemical treatment. Serums and shine sprays are your BFFs. 

Foxes' bouncy bangs: Volume is v important in both the fringe and the hair department. Keep things pumped with a roller brush, hairdryer and lightweight hairspray.
