Would you like to change your hairstyle without changing your hair colour or cutting your entire hair? If so, adding fringes to your hairstyle is just the right solution. No other hairstyle change could alter your appearance faster or easier. Happily, there are quite a few ways to style fringes. One of our featured stars may inspire your next fringed hairstyle choice

  • Hairstyles with fringes are always in style. Today, fringes come in many amazing styles. Recently, international designers had their models wear fake fringes while showing off the newest fashion (see the models for Marni and Calvin Klein).

    Fringes may be swept to the side, allowed to cover the forehead straight down to the eyebrows or cut in any style. Whatever the style, fringes are always eye-catching and draw attention to the eyes.

  • Who Looks Good with Fringes?

    Fringes flatter women with small or oblong faces and women with larger foreheads. Fringes shorten the face and in this way harmonise the proportions.

    However, even women with round faces look good with fringes. Long straight fringes and precision-cut fringes with straight edges look pleasing with soft facial lines.

    Tip: Thick long fringes are especially suited for full hair, while shorter fringes are suitable for fine hair. It is best to ask a Schwarzkopf hair stylist to cut your fringes. This professional stylist can advise you on the most suitable fringes for your face.

  • How to Style Fringes?

    Styling your fringes works best after applying a generous dollop of styling mousse. Blow-drying your hair while pulling it over a round brush gives your fringes added bounce and volume, and a dusting of hairspray keeps them from falling flat after a few hours.
