Bang Envy - Jean Shrimpton

Jean Shrimpton - from the V&A CollectionFollowing up on my post about Françoise Hardy, I thought I'd bring up another gal from the 1960s whose bangs are completely lust-worthy: Jean Shrimpton. Yes, she was a model so there was barely a hair out of place, but the artfulness of her smooth style had to do with that slightly tousseled bed-head look, a la Brigitte Bardot. Of course, the bangs are to die for. A little long, going straight down or swooshed to the side; either way, the look is delish.

I have the more modern version of this haircut now (I've had it before too), and while I can make my bangs do all sorts of things, I never get my hair to look quite so awesome. I'm sure it has to do with that antiquated idea of getting one's hair "done", whatever that means, but I still want it.

She was just stunning! The big eyes and nice cleavage as well as the bangs.

I like the swoopyness of the second photo the best. Whenever I've had bangs they always look so stringy and I am quite envious of the gals who pull it off with effortless aplomb.

Loved her style, but mostly her hair. I love the second pic of it all teased out--it's a wonder!
