beyond the fringe L


The Big Bang Theory


ove them or hate them, there’s no denying that fringes are very much in


the forefront in the style stakes this coming season. It’s a catwalk favourite that just keeps on coming back in one guise or another. Be it heavy, blunt, choppy, wispy or side swept, there is a fringe out there to suit almost everyone. Also known as ‘Bangs’, an American term made popular


in Britain during


the 2nd world war, a fringe makes a bold statement and brings structure to a hairstyle. It’s the smart option when you want to change your look without risking a complete restyle. Nothing has more impact on a hairstyle than dramatically cutting the piece of hair that surrounds your face. For better or worse it can completely change the perception of your face shape so a decision should not be entered into lightly, a fringe that suits one face shape may not suit another.

The classic fringe A la Miss Moss. Super sleek,


super length and super blunt. This classic look is never far from the fringe thoughts of any fashion forward female.


The side sweeping fringe Flirtatious, peek-a-boo


sweeping bangs are a


popular choice for a softer look or for a fringe first-


timer looking to try out the style before committing.


3 6 The Pixie 3 Before you make up your mind


on the perfect fringe, explore your options, have a chat with your stylist and take along pictures of the kind that appeals to you, a good stylist will guide you in the right direction considering your face shape, lifestyle and the direction of hair growth, for example cows licks, low hair line’s and natural partings which may limit your choices. Don’t be afraid to pop into your salon in between haircuts for a fringe trim, most salons don’t charge for this and it prevents you being tempted to get out the kitchen scissors before a big night out...... potential disaster! Adding a fringe is a daring decision,


so don’t chop off your precious locks until you’ve checked out our guide to the most ‘on trend’ bangs out there.

The classic 2 The side sweep 4 5


The punk fringe Sock this Debbie Harry-


esque choppy, textured fringe. Wear yours tousled and dishevelled or quiffed up to accentuate its rebellious, punk chick nature.


The flapper fringe Think 1920’s silent screen


siren Louise Brooks with her iconic fringed bob. Try ‘flapper girl’ chic for a rebellious yet sexy edge.


6 The statement


The cute fringe This short,pixie-like fringe


works with either crops or longer styles, it suits girls with smaller face shapes, be careful if you have a longer face.

The textured fringe Choppy, soft textured fringes work well


cropped short on elfin features and heart- shaped faces. Or wear it longer for a sexily dishevelled ‘bedhead’ vibe with lots of volume and sexy sweepings.

The bowl fringe A dense, curving, retro


style fringe works best with no layers and worn super-sleek and shiny.


The statement fringe A huge catwalk favourite,


the full, fat, precision cut fringe that’s starts nearer to the crown than the forehead. A real focal point of any haircut.


The asymmetric


fringe Asymmetric hair styles are a real artsy, bold choice, but if you don’t want to go all out with a total asymmetric restyle, just go for it with the fringe, it can turn an ordinary look into a statement making style.
