Adding a fringe to your hairstyle is an easy and fun way to freshen up your look without actually changing much at all. Imagine, for example, what subtle, face-framing wisps, a bold blunt cut, or a textured a-symmetrical side fringe could do for you.
With an endless variety of options available, it can be overwhelming deciding exactly which kind of fringe to choose. What works best for you will depend on your face shape, hair type, hair thickness, how much time you’re willing to spend styling it daily, and your personal style. Thin, fine hair might not be the best for a longer style of fringe, and short, feathery wisps may not be possible if you have curly hair. Talk to your stylist about what will be best suited for you.
Don’t expect for new, shortened locks around your face to sit exactly the way you want them to, at least not right away. Be aware it might take a while for your hair to fall into a different natural positioning, after having been brushed and encouraged in a different direction until now. After some time, your new fringe will settle into the most flattering angles with a little coaxing from styling and blow drying in the right direction.
Your fringe will need to be trimmed regularly. Hair grows at the rate of around a half inch (1.25cm) per month, and never will you notice this more than now! Luckily, most salons offer free trims between actual cuts, so take advantage of this if possible, as it’s a much better alternative than attempting to cut them yourself!
To sum up, having a fringe requires some maintenance. You will want to make sure it looks exactly right, as its primary purpose is to frame your face, enhancing your natural beauty. The good news is that with a little extra work – not too much extra – you can look a lot more fabulous… and we think it’s totally worth it!
