This look is best pulled off with statement makeup, vibrant hair color or extreme earrings. With one simple hairstyle, you can make the statement that has nothing to hide and everything to gain. Keeping your bangs longer, it still lets your bold arches peek through. Try an ash blonde hue for your hair and a bold color to accentuate your eyebrows. Or color your strands in some subtle pink and purple shades to enhance the charm. A shorter bowl cut can be balanced out with a long piece-y fringe in front. Give it some attitude and texture for a complete edgy vibe. A modern cut deserves a futuristic feel.
