Shaggy Chop

Lash skimming fringes as seen at Isabel Marant and Alexander Wang are so Parisian-chic. Keep yours light (less hair is better) and give it a ruffle with your fingers to create a slight separation when styling- it makes it look more undone.

Style it with: Percy & Reed’s No Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo, £12, it’s a great quick fix for fringes that tend to get greasy quickly .

Swopping Side Shed

> Swooping Side Shed


If you’re not ready to fully commit, try this side swoop faux fringe, as spotted at Peter Pilotto. First create a deep side parting, then pull your hair low over your forehead and pin the hair, just above your ear.

Style it with: eSalon Shining Armour Renewing Treatment Oil, £13 to keep the shine on point. Squirt a little into the palm of your hand, then dip a blusher brush into the oil and dust it over your fringe.

Blunt Bangs

If you’ve got thick or curly hair, then long heavy bangs are perfect for framing your face- especially if your locks are always slightly unruly to begin with. Keep the ends sharp with regular fringe trims (most haridressers will do it for free!)

Style it with: TRESemme Beaut-Full Volume Hair Maximiser, £4.99. Smooth a little into damp hair to instantly eliminate frizz.

Micro Fringe

> Micro Fringe


Don’t dismiss this ‘edgier’ cut- micro fringes make you look younger! A fringe cut way above your brows enhances the visibility of your eyes, making you look more awake. Plus it’ll hife the star of any frown lines.

Style it with: Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder, £22, to add thickness and give a slightly textured finish.
