The sun is out and spirits are high. Many of us are spring cleaning our houses and wardrobes in some cases. With all this change we sometimes feel our image could do with a spruce up too. Well, I have a suggestion which doesn’t require anything too drastic – in one word it’s ‘fringe’!
The first fringe in my spotlight is the long fringe. This is great for mid length and longer hair styles and those with heart shaped faces. Its an easy casual fringe to wear either pushed to the side or worn in a centre parting, pushed back and then allowed to fall naturally and secured in place with a light spritz of hairspray. This is a low commitment, low maintenance fringe – perfect for hair dresser shy people!
Next up – the soft full fringe. This fringe is ideal for long, medium length hair and select shorter length styles. This fringe is perfect for oval, heart and square shaped faces. Top tip for this fringe is to use a large round brush when blow drying it to give it fullness. When dry, give it a light shake to tousle it and make it ‘bitty’ looking – softening the look. This is a medium commitment fringe needing maintenance every 8-10 weeks.
If you are looking to make a strong statement then the blunt fringe is for you. When done well this fringe is nothing short of stunning. It can frame any oval face but some round faces can carry it effortlessly too! It is the focal point of a haircut and can vary widely in length depending on how brave you are. Blunt fringes are, however, high maintenance and need cutting every 4-6 weeks to retain its bluntness.
To add definition to your face shape & cheek bones try the side fringe. It gives the impression of a longer face, making it most compatible with a round face type. This is a great way to soften long and medium length hairstyles but works effectively with short styles too. This fringe requires a medium commitment and is an easy going little twist to a hair cut.
Don’t stand on the fringe, jump in and give it a go!!
