But this technique got a makeover and, recently, bleached bangs have become a fever among influencers. In addition to being trendy, the front locks are easy to do — want to see?

What are the front strands?
If you followed idols teens in the 2000s, then you must remember that the chunky highlights were an absolute success, and celebrities such as Rihanna, Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson adopted the look at the time. We are talking about deliberately marked locks, which contrast with the base color of the hair.
Currently, the trend has come back with a vengeance — but it has also gained a “new version”. The over-marked lock has shifted to the front of her hair. On the fringe only.
In the above collage, it is possible to notice how the front strand is different from the hair contour, a coloring that reached its peak between 2016 and 2018. In this case, the fringe also undergoes bleaching, but the technique is applied subtly and blends with highlights located at the ends of the hair. The main idea is to create strategic lighting to enhance the contour of the face.
Already the proposal of front lock is to create a look fun, modern and full of character. The technique is to create a discolored and well-marked band, on purpose. No wonder the trend is also called the “vampire lock”. After all, the X-Men character was marked by this iconic look. Celebrities like Cleo Pires, Kylie Jenner, Bella Thorne and Anitta have recently entered this fashion.
How to make?
Making frontal locks at home can be relatively easy, but you need to pay attention to a number of factors:
1. When toning or bleaching your hair, it is essential to do the strand and sensitivity test before to see if you have any allergies. The step by step of this procedure is indicated on the packaging of the product you purchased;
2. Will it bleach for the first time? Do a strand test to find out how long your hair “opens”. That is, how long it takes to reach the desired tone. but it’s important Never exceed the time indicated on the product packaging;
3. Don’t forget the gloves disposable and use brushes and plastic pots;
4. Talk to an expert before performing the procedure alone. Your hairdresser knows your locks better than anyone and can give you key tips. We also reinforce that the result achieved at home can hardly be compared to the work of experts.
To lighten your hair, you will need to mix it with bleaching powder and hydrogen peroxide. Remember that hydrogen peroxide is measured in volumes. That is, you will find this product with 10, 20, 30 or 40 volumes — and your choice must be made according to the desired result.
The 10 volume hydrogen peroxide is the weakest and serves to enhance the color of toners. Already the 40 volume opens the hair tone faster and helps to reach platinum blonde. However, it is the most “dangerous”, as it damages the hair more and should only be used by professionals.
After making the mixture, it’s time to apply it:
Make a kind of triangle in the front of the hair (as shown in figure 1) and secure the rest of the strands with the help of elastics and bobby pins; Then separate the bangs into thinner strands. With the help of a brush and aluminum foil, paint the highlights. Tip: paint the ends first, as the hair roots tend to open faster; Wait a few minutes, until your hair tone opens. It is important to remember that each hair has a different time to reach the desired color and you must not exceed the maximum time indicated on the packaging of the products purchased (which is normally 30 minutes); If you want strands more pulled towards white, you can use shampoos or toning masks, which can “take away” the yellow tone of the wires.
Another important tip: if you have short bangs, but you’re dying to adhere to the look, you can separate a strand a little longer – that takes strands “beyond” the bangs. As you can see above, the result is also very cool.
