In an interview about Kate's hair David confessed to constantly thinking up new ways to create fabulous hairstyles and hairdos for his muse. In his interview David noted Kate's willingness to let him do whatever he felt best for her tresses.

As a result, he works very hard to create an ever changing array of new looks and Kate always looks very well tressed, bangs or no bangs.

At the Skeleton Key Premiere in August of 2005 Kate wore her naturally wavy hair au natural with a deep right side part. Her uber long side-swept bangs draped seductively over one eye in traditional Veronica Lake fashion.

If you look closely you will notice two the two sections that merge together to form the side-swept bang look. There is one section of hair that extends directly from the hairline and flows down over her eyebrow.

Right above the long side-swept bang section, which has been fashioned into loose waves is a larger panel of hair that branches directly off from the side part and is direct up and over to the side of Kate's head, nestling on top of the side-swept bang section.

The two sections of hair, the side-swept bangs and the upper panel of hair flow together in perfect harmony in Kate's Bang Hair Universe.

What is fabulous about Kate's Skeleton Key bang hairstyle besides the perfect symmetry of the side-swept bangs and hair panels is the way the hairstyle combines sultry sophistication with sexiness. Kate's side-swept long wavy style is pure Hollywood.

Could she look any more gorgeous? Even better, the side-swept bangs balance her face shape which is a combo of classic heart and oval.

Types Of Hair Compatible With Kate's Bang Hairstyle

At first glance it is hard to determine whether Kate has long side-swept bangs or is just wearing her side hair panels coiffed in a faux bangs style.

If you look closely you will see that Kate does have bangs that end parallel with her cheek. They appear to be one length or have very slight layers.

Kate's long side-swept bangs would work best with hair that is either naturally straight, wavy or with a slight curl or bend. This style can also work with naturally curly hair if the hair is pre-straightened before creating the final waves along the sides.
