What You Should Know Before Getting A Fringe

Aug 6, 2018Fringe

A fringe can completely change your look, adding a gorgeous edge to your hairstyle. There are several different types of fringes, ranging from wispy, long-side fringes to thick blunt cuts and everything in between. But before you rush off to your closest salon to request bangs of your very own, there are a few things you need to know and take into account.

  1. Your hair texture

The best hair for a great-looking fringe is thick and relatively straight. If you have fine, wavy hair, you may struggle to maintain the look. When your hair dries naturally, does it fall straight or does it kink and curl?

Thick, straight hair is easy to style, and you can probably get away with most types of fringes. But if you’ve got curls, it’s probably best to go for a longer, less-structured fringe.

  1. Your face shape

Thick blunt-cut fringes look great on longer, thinner faces, while unstructured, side-swept fringes are the best choice for rounder, wider faces. Discuss the best bangs for your face shape with your hairdresser because there’s no going back – at least for several months – once that fringe has been cut!

  1. Your climate

If you live in a very humid or wet climate, a fringe might mean a whole lot of work. Again, your hair type will come into play here. If your hair frizzes easily in the heat or rain, a fringe might not be the best style option as it is quite high maintenance, unless you’ve got plenty of time to spend styling it a couple of times a day.

  1. Your grooming schedule

Ensuring your bangs always looks great involves a lot of work – that’s an important fact to take on board. If you’ve got a wash-and-go attitude to styling your hair, gym a lot or are juggling kids and work and a minimal budget for blow dries, it’s probably not the best option.

Unless your hair is naturally straight and super-thick, you’ll need to blow dry and perhaps use a straightening iron every day.

If you’re considering a fringe, make sure you have an in-depth discussion with your hairdresser to establish that it’s the right look for your hair and lifestyle. The experienced hairdressers at Wieselmann Salon will take the time to chat with you about every aspect of your desired hairstyle so you can manage your hair after you leave the salon.
