Let’s face it, we’ve all had a fringe disaster at some point, most likely during our experimental teenage years. Fringes can completely transform your look, but because many of us are unclear on what kind of fringe would suit us best, we generally tend to avoid them, for fear of making a mistake.
Fringes can be super stylish, and provide a great way to update your look without altering the length of your hair, which is why we’re helping you work out which fringe might suit you, in accordance to your face shape…
Square Face Shape
Long eye-grazing fringes that are a little tapered on the sides will help soften square face shapes. Go for a fringe that sits just below your brows, sitting heavier at the sides so that your hair doesn’t get in your eyes. To the centre the hair should be a little feathery – no blunt lines here – this style should be soft.
Round Face Shape
A gently arching fringe is the best option for a round face, which compliments soft and rounded features. A blunt fringe might make a round face appear even rounder, so avoid any harsh lines. A curved shape is the right way to go, with thickness to the fringe, rather than a soft wispy finish.
Heart Shaped Face
Generally, if your face is heart shaped, it might be a little top heavy. A side fringe is the perfect way to add balance to your face. Opt for a feathered fringe where the shortest pieces meet the arch of your eyebrows, and the longest sit at the outer corner of your eyes.
Oval Face Shape
If you’ve got an oval face you can celebrate – nearly every fringe style will suit you, so you have a little more room to experiment. One of the most flattering styles for you is a light and textured straight fringe. Go for a length that sits just between the brow and eyelashes, and is a little longer on the sides. This will give you options to either wear your fringe straight and parted in the middle, or sweep it to the side. Fringes are well worth experimenting with, but avoid making a mistake by establishing what your face shape is, and what will suit you first, as they can take some time to grow out.
