How to Create The Iconic Honey Bang By Jimmy Paul

When we saw the half wet, half sculpted, part messy, part clean look editorial stylist Jimmy Paul created on Axel Lindhahl for W Mag, we knew this would be our summer pool look and we needed to know how to recreate it. The sculpted front piece is what really defines the image, creating a uniquely modern style with a vintage twist. Jimmy tells W Mag, “An artistically placed piece of hair always completes a look…It’s as much of a statement as say, bangs or fringe, but without the commitment. When I assisted [the legendary hairstylist] Danilo, he called it a ‘honey bang.’ I love that.”

TO STYLE:

 1. “On damp hair, make a deep side part. Apply mousse or Bumble and bumble thickening hairspray.

2. Rough dry to get a good natural texture.

3. Take a 2 inch section in the front and apply Bumble and bumble gel just in the front, do a quick but flattering finger wave, securing with a bobby pin.

NOTE: Use gel just in the front, keeping the back dry.”
