Have you ever thought about getting a fringe? Are you bored with your current hairstyle and fancy
getting a fringe, but you're not sure if a fringe will suit your face shape? Will it annoy you? Well, read on to help you make your decision.
There are lots of different types and styles of fringes and trying to find the style that suits you best can sometimes be hard.
There are wispy fringes, solid fringes, thick fringes, thin fringes, side fringes, long and short fringes, heavy fringes and lots more
types, but it depends on your face shape. Every face shape suits different fringe styles.
If you have a square shaped face a long, wispy layered fringe will round your face shape of a little
bit. Add a few small layers to the front of your face to soften the edges, giving you a more rounded look.
If you have an oval shaped face, you have the best shaped face there is. Oval faces suit any style of fringe, any length, shape and
heaviness. An oval face is very versatile, so you can have fun experimenting with different styles.
A heart shaped face needs a fringe that will soften the long, prominent chin, so you need a blunt, heavier, sharp fringe to make the face appear more in proportion.
Long, pointy shaped faces need a side fringe that is slightly angled to soften the face shape, also putting the hair in a side parting will shorten the length of the face.
If you have a round face, you will need a soft, layered fringe that is slightly angled to the side to add a little bit of length to the face.
Short fringes also add length to rounded shaped faces. Avoid long fringes as this can emphasis the rounded face and can look too harsh.
Some people feel more confident with a fringe, as it feels as if you have something to hide behind.
If you have quite a large forehead, a fringe is good for
hiding the fact. A prominent forehead can look even worse if you do not have a fringe and if you wear your hair scraped back at the front,
you should maybe think about a soft, angled layered fringe worn to the side to soften the face.
Some people suit short fringes, but if you have a longer shaped face, I'd advise you to stay away from this kind of style as it can make
your forehead look even longer. Have you ever heard the expression 'spam', well that's what you will look like.
Fringes, or 'bangs' as the American's call it, can really emphasis your style and change the
appearance of your hairstyle and face. I personally have a fringe and don't think I could cope without one because I have had one
for that long, I feel very strange without one, also I feel a lot more confident with a fringe. I can change the style of my fringe quite
frequently because I have an oval face. Sometimes I have a full fringe, just skimming my eyes, and other times I have a slightly angled
side fringe. I prefer my hair when I have a side fringe, as it suits whatever way I wear my hair. If you would like a versatile fringe
that you can wear anyway, you should ask your hairdresser for a long wispy fringe, that way you can you can either wear it to the side
or you can wear it as a full fringe. If you are like me and get bored easily with your hair, but don't want to change the length of your
hair, it is surprising how a new fringe can completely change the style of your hair.
Adding colour to your fringe can also change the style of your fringe without cutting it any
different. Adding a few light blonde highlights to your fringe
can brighten it and change the shape. You can also add a few panels of different colours to the underneath of the fringe, this also
changes the look without changing length, style etc of the hair. Having dark hair with a blonde panel underneath your fringe is a really nice look just now.
