5 reasons to go for a curtain fringe

Often confused with the blunt fringe, the curtain fringe is separated into two (hence its name) and layered down to the cheekbones. Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller and Kate Middleton have already fallen for this style. Read on to find out why!

1. It is suited to all types of hair

Whether you have straight, wavy or curly hair, dare to try out the curtain fringe to boost your haircut. Its layers and length (down to the cheekbones) allow you to control the volume of your curls.

2. It enhances a round face

The curtain fringe does not make round faces look even more round, because it leaves a part of the forehead free of hair. It gives your haircut a boost, without looking overly austere.

3. You can incorporate a braid

With its cheekbone length, the curtain fringe is easily combined with a sleek braid without any unruly strands sticking out. Perfect for keeping the hair out of your face and changing your look for a few days or an evening.

4. It is a great transitional hairstyle

If you want to grow your fringe out, you have two options for keeping your hair looking good as it grows. Hold your hair back with hair grips when it is in its longer stages (which limits your choices in terms of hairstyles) or adapt your hairstyle with a curtain fringe. In a few snips, your hairdresser will layer the strands so that they blend into the rest of your hair.

5. It is easier to keep in good condition

Regular touch-ups are required to keep the perfect straight line which characterises a blunt fringe. With the curtain fringe you do not have to worry – its layers will allow you to let more time pass between haircuts.
