Wispy, homemade, and perfectly imperfect—Violette demonstrates how to successfully take scissors to one’s own bangs.
Meet Violette—a girl who is more likely to be found applying makeup in the backseat of a moving vehicle or on the streets of New York than she is perched at her vanity. A girl who, like you, always has someplace to be and no time to get there. In this weekly video series, VIOLET GREY follows the Parisian makeup artist around town to chronicle her infamous on-the-go beauty routines. The rules? No crew, no set, no artificial lighting—and no contouring.
Who better to show you how to achieve French girl hair than our Parisian beauty expert. Taking sheers to her covetable bangs, Violette demonstrates the trick to trimming your own bangs at home.
HOW TO STYLE
For effortless, tousled locks (and we mean effortless), Violette uses her Mason Pearson hair brush. A stylist must-have, the expertly made brush is crafted with seven rings of carefully placed boar bristle and nylon tufts to stimulate the scalp and evenly distribute natural oils. Violette then straightens her hair with a Dyson Supersonic hair dryer to add shine.
While her hair sets, Violette does a two-minute makeup touch up. She starts by applying a moisturizing lip and cheek tint with her fingers. “I like it because it’s just one product that I put everywhere,” she says. The makeup artist then removes unwanted redness with her favorite concealer.
