3 Things You Need to Know Before Cutting a Fringe

How to Find the Right Fringe For Your Face Shape

I feel like it’s easy to get swept up in the transformative spirit of September and suddenly find yourself coveting a dramatic style change. There have been many occasions in the past where I have had a fringe cut on the spur of the moment, expecting to look like Rose Byrne or Alexa Chung, and it’s never quite gone to plan.

It turns out that’s because you should let the fringe/bangs chose you, not the other way around. And by that I mean you need to take your hair into careful consideration before going in for the chop, rather than just selecting a style you like out of a magazine.

P.S. 3 things you need to know about damaged hair and creating beach waves.


  1. Your fringe looks so pretty! Even though I’m not really a fringe person myself (too many disasters in my early 20s), I enjoyed the tips a lot – I think it is so important to get a fringe cut more regularly. And you never know, maybe one day I’ll be inspired to go back to a fringe! xxx

  2. An incredible post. Some brilliant tips. Thank you lovely.
