Making a fringe work for you

Summer is almost here, which means that you’re probably getting the itch to switch up your look. For a quick and easy fix, why not consider a fringe? It’s versatile, face framing and (if the runways are anything to go by) looking to be a huge trend for 2017. If you’re tentative, or not willing to commit to change, remember that a full-fringe isn’t the only option. Your face shape may be better suited to baby bangs, a sweeping side fringe or a 70’s face-framing style. A fringe will compliment many looks, depending on how you wear your hair . Long lengths, bobs, poker straight locks and beachy waves can all work incredibly well with a fringe.

Before you take the plunge and commit to a new cut here are some key things to keep in mind:
You’ll probably need patience to make this look work for you. If you’re not keen on styling your hair every morning, maybe give a full-fringe a miss. If you’re still up for it, ask your stylist to show you how to blow out your fringe properly, and invest in a good quality round brush.
Do not (we repeat, do not!) DIY your fringe at home. Cutting your hair in the mirror will not yield the same results as a haircut by a fully-trained stylist with years of experience.
Remember that maintenance is necessary. You’ll have to book in for regular fringe trims every 4-6 weeks, to keep your hair looking neat and tidy.
Not sure what type of fringe will suit your face shape? Have a chat with your stylist about what will best suit your face shape.
It’s also crucial to invest in the right products for your hair. If you have fine hair, use plumping products (like the Kevin Murphy Full Again range) to avoid the dreaded stringy fringe and keep your locks looking bouncy and luscious. Also make sure you have a good dry shampoo on hand for emergencies, to avoid greasy hair at inopportune moments.
