As for how she keeps the fringe so flawless, Fetherston said that she now cuts them herself, ideally EVERY DAY:“This is the story of how I first came to acquire perfect bangs,” said Fetherston. “I lived in Paris for a long time, and I was introduced to a magnificent hairdresser — an Australian man whose name was David Mallett. He said “If we’re going to have a relationship you’re going to need to come here every week. You’re representing my work.” He’s not a diva, he was just scared. So I would come by once a week. He would wash, blowdry, get it really straight, and then he would have me stand up against the wall. It was very intense. He would literally snip hair by hair by hair. And then he would sit down, blow it, have me stand up. It would be this dance going on and on. Sometimes he would get it in one shot, other times it would be bad. It was like sex. Like, “Do you think it looks straight?” “I don’t know, do you?”
“To me, it depends on what kind of hair you have, but the secret is don’t use the brush too much. If you have a blowdryer, you need to get a nozzle on it that comes to a very thin, razor sharp slit. The smaller the slit the better. Your head has a curve. Here at the curve is where things can go wonky with the bangs. Just take the hairdryer and shoot that air super hot, not even using a brush. The power of the air and the heat through that razor slit just pushes them down. Within two minutes you can get them straight. Don’t use a round brush. Then you just have to have a steady hand. I start between my eyebrow and my eyelash.”Last piece of advice before wrapping up and getting down to the celebration at hand? “Wind is not your friend. Carry a comb and hairspray.”
Here’s how to get it:
1. Start by separating the front of the hair from the back. Tease the front section, and pull back slightly to one side, securing with an elastic at the crown. Be sure to focus on keeping the front poufy, and use a comb to lightly tame any roughness.
2. Next, curl the back portion of the hair and pull back into a ponytail directly below the ponytail you created in the previous step.
3. Spritz the style with hairspray to hold. Tip: for an added touch, twist two to three skinny-sized sections from the top ponytail and pin each under the bottom ponytail.

To create the retro style, Campora first applied Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip ($23), and blow-dried Megan’s hair using a round brush. After creating a deep side part, he used a one-inch barrel curing iron and set the curl into pin curls to cool. After about 15 minutes, he took out the pin curls and brushed them out until they were perfectly placed over her dress. Finally, Campora spritzed on Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray ($35) for lasting hold.
