In with a bang!
Having a fringe can change your whole look… here’s how to ge the best ‘bangs’ for your buck.
While fringes are one of our favourite (and quickest ways) to update your style for winter, choosing a style that suits your face shape is important.
Similar width across forehead, cheekbones and jawline Defined jawline Soften out the face by adding a long fringe that just grazes your eyes and feathers out into longer strands at each side. The middle of the fringe can be a little more feathered, giving glimpses of the forehead, and should be cut just below the brows. Try making it thicker on the sides.
Face length and width similar Soft angles Wider, full cheeks A gently curved fringe, with a slow arch, helps complement a fuller face and accentuates feminine features. It may make the face appear fuller, so experiment to make sure it suits you. You want a thick, graphic cut for this look, as it will make your bone structure really pop.
Gradual narrowing to the point of the chin Chin is fairly pointy Forehead is generally prominent A sideswept fringe will help naturally draw the eye across the face, ending at your eyes to accentuate them. A feathered, layered fringe is perfect for this look, with longer pieces reaching your outer eyes and shorter pieces around the height of your eyebrow arch.
Forehead slightly wider than chin Face longer than its width Face tapers down to chin The good news is almost any fringe can work with this shape face. However for maximum impact, try a pin straight, airy cut to accentuate the prettiest part of the face. Request a fringe that hits between the brows.
A sloping, diagonal fringe makes a short forehead appear stronger and more pronounced.
Request a steep, side-swept cut which ends around the cheekbone in a subtle layering.
This fringe will require a deep side part.
A ‘swingy’ fringe is thick and holds more volume, helping to conceal the forehead.
A gradual angle can be incorporated to help open and widen the face a little.
You can part this fringe in the middle, or request a side-swept part.
Remember to start far back from the hairline to get the volume and weight needed to make this look work.
