Bangs should be maintained with a toothbrush, according to the 7th Heaven star's stylist.

Actress Jessica Biel's hairstylist, Adir Abergel, has offered up tips on how to replicate his client's gorgeous new bangs.

The Total Recall star debuted her fresh 'do via Twitter on Tuesday (20Sep16).

She added a caption to a snap of herself sitting in a barber's chair, writing: "FRINGE! by @hairbyadir".

And now the man behind her buzzworthy new look has offered insight into how reproduce the style.

“(Biel’s bangs) aren’t too heavy, but they’re heavy enough that they’re not wispy," he shares with People magazine. "They are just right above the eyebrow, so you can still see it. Not that other bang that I used to give her, which was way heavier, more fashion-y, way more of a blanket.

"This was definitely about bringing (out) her earthy, feminine side. It was fun and exciting.”

However, if Jessica wants her new mane to remain the same her bangs require a strict aftercare routine over the next week or so.

“Bangs are interesting because when you’ve been parting your hair in the middle for such a long time, it really does take a while to re-train them,” he elaborates. “Even after I was done, they were wanting to split in the middle! So I was teaching her how to use gel on it for the first week to re-train it (hair).”

The best way to apply gel to new bangs is on a toothbrush, according to Adir, who explains: “It’s not about putting gel everywhere, it’s about really anchoring those roots and teaching them, ‘No, no, no, you’re going to go in the direction I want you to go in!'”

Biel isn't the only celebrity who has ventured into bangs territory, as fellow A-listers Lucy Hale, Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez have also recently experimented with the fringe look.
