This style is ideal if you’re less committed to a bold, blunt look.

Fringes for round faces can help elongate your face. Just adjust the width so that there are longer pieces graduating at each side.

If you’re feeling indecisive, ease yourself into a fringe gradually with a long, sweeping fringe. Adding a layer will frame your face if you style feels a bit flat.

Still not convinced? Experiment with a ‘winge’ aka a fringe wig. You can buy blunt, feathered, long or short clip-in fringe styles that match up with your own colour.

Simply clip in securely and see if it suits your face. To make your winge look more realistic, pull pieces of your own hair around the fringe piece so it’s blended seamlessly.

Head for the hairdressers chair if you need some advice and inspiration. A good professional can give you the lowdown on the fringe that best suits your current style and hair type.
