While the latest hair trends are full and thick, the fringe has not fallen off the radar. Many of you are still taking the plunge and there are various versions to choose from to customise your cuts. Here’s a quick look at some of Autumn-Winter 2012’s most popular fringes.
Short. This season’s top trend. The mini fringe, seen at Versace, is straight, thick and angular and stops halfway down the forehead for a highly structured cut. It can be worn on mid-length or long hair and looks best on more square faces.
Rolled. This retro fringe has been spotted at Jenny Packham and works especially well with an up-do. The base of the fringe is thick and full, then the hair is worked with a round brush (choose a small diameter). The fringe is fixed in place with hairspray.
Sideswept. Casual and easy to wear, the sideswept fringe is often layered or wispy and is worn to one side. Avoid if you have curly or frizzy hair. The fringe should fall into place naturally. If you don’t have straight hair, you’ll have to work it into place using a brush.
Graphic. At Antonio Berardi, the fringe is graphic, even square, for an ultra-structured cut. This architecturally inspired fringe gives your style an orderly or even military edge. Looks best with short cuts.
Wispy. Definitely a classic! This fringe has stood the test of time. Thin and wispy, it can be repositioned as much as you like and falls gently across your forehead without covering it completely. Choose the wispy fringe if you’re not one to spend lots of time styling your hair.
Rounded. This seventies fringe has been seen at Margaret Howell and works well on both mid-length and long, preferably straight hair. The fringe is full but not too thick. This is an ultra-trendy retro fringe!
