Rihanna. Selena Gomez. Zac Efron. All incomparable individuals who have, at one point, shared a singular thing in common: "swoop" bangs. (OK, so they can each also sing, act, and probably have impeccable skin-care routines, but this story isn't about them.) Anyway, you couldn't walk to the nearest Starbucks in a Juicy Couture tracksuit without seeing the hairstyle everywhere in the early 2000s - and, if you believe the pros, it will be making a comeback this fall. "After months without a bang trim, I can see short bangs becoming a 'swoop bang,' bringing the side part back to center stage and replacing the center part," said César DeLeön Ramîrez, celebrity hairstylist and Unite brand ambassador. Like an exaggerated side bang, the swoop also works on any hair length and "looks great with short to long layers." To style, Ramirez recommends applying a blow-dry cream - one that smooths frizz and flyaways - to damp hair, then use a round brush to blow out the long bangs into the soft style. (Or skip the blow-drier completely and sweep to the side of your ponytail.) It's versatile, easy, and early aughts-approved, and it's not going anywhere soon. Ahead, see proof that this is a hairstyle trend with staying power.

As Britain battles a second wave of coronavirus infections, MPs heard on Wednesday how Italy, the epicentre of Europe’s coronavirus outbreak back in February, managed to turn the tide on the disease. Italy’s response to the coronavirus outbreak was once seen as too extreme, but tough measures have since helped keep infections down, a group of experts told the all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on Wednesday. Britain, on the other hand, has been too complacent and even now, as the country is faced with a growing threat, measures are not strict enough. The UK is now facing a second wave of the virus and more restrictions while in Italy seems to have so far escaped a huge resurgence of the disease. On Wednesday, the UK recorded nearly 5,000 cases, while Italy recorded 1,300. The two countries have similar sized populations but the cultural chasm between the two nations has resulted in divergent epidemiological outcomes, Professor Paolo Vineis, Head of the Unit of Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology at the Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine, told MPs. “Italy’s response was considered to be exaggerated and too family orientated, but it was effective,” he said. The country has not seen a huge resurgence of cases since lifting lockdown in June, because the Italian government used the period of shutdown to strengthen its network of regional general practitioners and build a strong contract tracing system, the professor said. Italy’s population has also been widely “compliant” with the on-going coronavirus measures and many continue to wear masks, he added. The contrast between Britain and Italy’s response could not be more different, agreed Professor Luca Richeldi, Associate Professor of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Modena and a member of Italy’s strategic committee for Covid-19 “If I have to give you my honest opinion on Britain’s reaction to the coronavirus pandemic, I was really shocked,” he told MPs.
