Fringes can add an edgy, updated feel to any haircut. However, you must choose the right fringe style for you: one that flatters your face shape, and emphasizes your unique features. It can be a difficult style to pull off, but with the right hairstylist, you can rock it. Here are some of the best fringe hairstyles for 2017.
The Shag Fringe
Popularized by rock stars and boho babes, the shag fringe hairstyle works best for straight, fine hair. It gives a messy, lived in look that can be toned up or down with the right clothing. It involves cutting the hair short, with short, choppy layers and a fringe that falls naturally into your face. Ask for a lean, narrow fringe for an edgy, modern look. To style, use a wax or lightweight pomade to give definition to the locks.
The Blunt Bob with Fringe
The blunt bob is a classic, timeless cut that is easy to style and maintain. It is however, necessary to have healthy hair to pull this off. It involves adding a fringe that length is just above the eyebrow. It acts as a frame to the face and is a beautiful, formal look. The main trick to making this style look effortless is to keep the ends cut at a sharp angle, otherwise it can look a bit bedraggled. A quick, weekly trim can keep it looking fresh.
The Curly Fringe
If you are a woman who likes to show off her curls, then the curly fringe is the haircut for you. This is a great style for those with coarse, tight ringlets who want to bring out the fullness of their tight curls. The length should remain just above your eyes, and the types of layers you choose for the rest of your hair can vary greatly. The key is to keep it short at the neck and the sides, then longer and choppier around the face. To style and maintain, try using a curl enhancing mousse or cream on wet hair.]
The Classic Fringe
The classic fringe is exactly what it sounds like: a timeless cut that will never go out of style. It is a great option for those who have longer faces and can pull off a fringe without needing one tailored specifically to their face shape. Ask your stylist to cut a heavy, blunt fringe that falls just above the eyebrows and frames your face perfectly. This fringe looks great when worn with any hair length, but especially looks modern and chic when paired with a lob (long bob).
The Side Fringe
The side fringe is a great option for those who want to switch up their look without committing to bangs. To style, comb a side part and secure the side fringe away from the face with a bobby pin or small claw clip. The rest of the hair should fall into soft, loose waves and gives a modern, effortless look. This style is ideal for those with wavy or curly hair, and compliments heart-shaped or oval faces.
Fringes are a great way to update any haircut and bring out your unique features. With the right fringe haircut and maintenance, you can rock it in 2017. Choose the one that is right for you and have fun with it.
