"It's all about breaking the rules. Whatever really feels good for you in a trend, adopt it and make it your own," he told "GMA."

According to Gibson, everything from sultry curtain bangs as seen on Jennifer Lopez to gorgeous natural curls like Tracee Ellis Ross's will be huge this season.

"What's really incredible about curtain bangs is that it helps to bring out your eyes," said Gibson. "It helps to accentuate the cheekbone. And it's kind of like bangs without commitment."
