Carly Rae Jepsen is the hero of the blunt bang look, which is why we caught up with her hairstylist Sara Meddick of the Nelson J Salon in Beverly Hills — the only person Jepsen trusts with her fringe — for the inside scoop. “Although Carly Rae’s bangs are on the heavy side, she likes the ends to have texture so they appear piece-y and have a slight curve on the sides of her face,” said Meddick. “She likes to have them fall right below the eyebrow.” Her styling secret? “The best way is to finger dry them—avoiding using a round brush or a flat iron.” Rather, the stylist uses the salon’s Nelson J hair products, available at nelsonjhaircare.com.
