Michelle vs. Karlie

Just as important, however, is telling your stylist what you don’t want.

Customers need to understand that there is a fair amount of maintenance required, Murphy said, especially with a long bang (such as the first lady’s).

“There is an upkeep to it,” she said. “Most salons offer at least one complimentary bang trim, especially with those bangs that hit the top of the brow. [They’re] going to be getting in your eyes soon.”

While the first lady has pushed the trend forward, Vogue is pinning the look on Kloss, the supermodel. The magazine has called her bob-with-bangs “the haircut of the year.” Whether fashionistas end up calling it “the Michelle” or “the Karlie,” one thing is for sure: These bangs are making a name for themselves.

“I started doing hair just when ‘the Rachel’ haircut exploded,” Murphy said. “If I had eight clients that day, at least five were asking for Rachels. This is probably going to end up being the same thing because so many people can wear it and look good.”
