This Fetching Fringe Will Make You Want to Grab the Scissors!

Whether You Call Them Bangs or Fringe They Are an Essential Hair Styling Advantage

Have you heard the word about fringe? It’s the newest way to make any haircut unique. Forget those old, blunt cut bangs, today’s fringe frame your face, cut out a curve, add softness to look or make a bold fashion statement.

Every woman at some time or other asks “should I get fringe?” and “what fringe is right for me”? Whether you call them bangs or fringe . . . Lots of attention is being paid to the look by Hollywood celebrity hairdressers these days. Personally, I’m glad to see it. I think hairstyles with fringe are often overlooked as a style option. It can be wonderful for those of you that have great eyes.

The best fringe hairstyles are razor cut when your hair is dry, razor cutting permits the ultimate control and customization of the texture. For a business hairstyle, small individual pieces are razored to frame your eyes and blend into the sides. If you like a more high-fashion approach, super-thick, chunky fringe and even ones cut to two different lengths and tinted two-tones are the way to go.

Fringe will draw the visual focal point toward your eyes. Fringe is a must for those of you with oblong face shapes and high foreheads. If you have a broad forehead or a high hairline, fringe can be a lifesaver. However, if you have a small forehead or a disproportionately long, low facial shape, skip the fringe.

To choose the best fringe hair-style for you, consult with your hairdresser, have your hairdresser recommend a fringe style that will work with your haircut and hair type. In general, finer hair looks best with long, wispy fringes, while thicker hair can be used to create thicker, chunkier looks.

 

FRESH & FEMININE

A soft, wispy approach to fringe makes a layered bob look ultra-feminine. Frances DuBose of London Hair in Mt. Pleasant, SC, loves the look for thick hair that’s highly graduated in the back. The longer length in front allows eyes to peek out while the sides frame the cheekbones. By razoring in layers, DuBose makes the effect extra-soft. When you dry, direct the back and sides forward to enhance the textured feeling.

PLAYFUL FRINGE

Use longer hair to create a side swoop, and you’ve got a playful look that you can change at a moment’s notice. George Panagiotopolos of Yellow Strawberry Global Salon in Sarasota, FL, parts hair on the far side clips one front piece a bit shorter and dries all the hair to the side. It can also be swept to the opposite side or styled straight back for no fringe at all. This version is best paired with little crops and bobs that fall to ear lobe length.

LAYERED FRINGE

Convertible bangs like these feature layers that are directed to the sides. George Panagiotopolos of Yellow Strawberry Global Salon in Sarasota, FL, designed the look to put more focus on your eyes while adding volume and lift at the sides. Pull a few more pieces forward at nighttime; during the day, play up the style’s fashionable edge. Golden high lights, positioned where the fringe splits, adds a touch of shine.

Hairstyles for Your Face

How to Determine Hairstyles for Your Face

Fashion freaks over the world dread the fact of mismatching their clothes with the accessories and hairstyle. While choosing the clothes and accessories are quite easy, deciding over a hairstyle is comparatively difficult as there is a need for one to determine the face shape and take the personality into consideration. A right kind of hairstyle for your face is as important as hair care. It is also important if the person is able to carry off the hairdo in style. Here are a few tips for choosing the right kind of hairstyles for your face.“Getting Hairstyles for Your Face Right”

  • It is primarily important to determine the shape of your face. You can do this by tying you hair behind and watch your face closely in the mirror. Determine the shape of your face before you go ahead to choose the hairstyle. This is essential as the hairstyles done without taking the shape of the face into consideration your look may go awry.
    .
  • If you have an oval face, you can say you are extraordinarily gifted, as any type of hairstyle will suit you. This will allow you to experiment different and innovative kinds of hairstyles. But the best tip would be to settle down on a haircut that gives a lot of volume to the hair with movements near the areas of cheekbones.
    .
  • If you have a round face you need to be extra careful with your selection of hairstyle.  A wrong choice of hairdo and you can mess up with your looks. You need to focus on the hairstyles that make your face shape less round. Keep away from the fuller and round hairstyles. A side parting of the hair can make your hair appear less round. The right length for your hair is below the chin as this lengthens the features of your face. For more hairstyles that might make your face look thinner check out our Pinterest Hairstyles for Round Face Board.
    .
  • Short and bobbed hairstyles are a strict no-no for the round faces. They make the face appear broader and spoil your look. You can create volume and fullness to the crown of your head by choosing a layered hair style. This also makes your face appear narrower. A hair color of chocolate brown or sandy blonde may also look great.
    .
  • Short and straight bangs are also to be avoided. They draw attention to the widest parts of your face. Even if you want to have bangs in a short side swept effect. This works better.
    .
  • For the people with an oblong face shape, the short to medium hairstyles will work best. Go for a hairstyle that has a side parting than at the center as a center parting may amplify the length of your face. Very short cuts or very long cuts are better avoided.
    .
  • Whatever may be the face shapes you can choose the hair colors for the hairstyles according to the trend for example the right hair dye colors for Asians include black and brown.
