Now summer is coming to a close, if you have been thinking of trying out a fringe now is the time! In the hot summer months, having your hair fall on your face and getting used to a new style may be complicated, so as we approach cooler temperatures why not try a new fringe! There are many different styles to suit different hair textures and face shapes, so come and ask the team at Sequence Paris and we can advise you what would be best for you.
THE FRINGE IS STILL IN FASHION...TRUE !
In fact, everything depends on the type of fringe you are looking for. If you are looking for a Bardot-esque fringe, long and unstructured that opens in the middle, this will always stay very fashionable. A lot my clients ask me for this style of fringe, often bringing me photos of Sienna Miller or Camila Cabello. On the other hand, a pin-up, rounded or even brushed fringes that go up on the sides are to be avoided.
THE FRINGE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL TYPES OF HAIR...FALSE!
I believe every type of hair can have a fringe. The only little problem can be if the client has a lot of cowlicks at the front as this can prevent the client being able to style their hair easily once at home. It will be harder to keep a more smooth even result.
Then if all is well, I can adapt the fringe to the texture of the hair. On thin hair, I can take in more hair than if the client has thick hair, and all the while taking into account the size of the forehead as well.
THE FRINGE ON THICK CURLY HAIR IT'S POSSIBLE?...TRUE !
If your hair is thick and curly, just take less hair. I would section the hair differently to do this, whether you wear your hair in the middle or on a side part. Also I am always careful not to cut it too short when it is wet, as when it dries and curls naturally you do not want to have little spiral curls mid-forehead!
For a curly fringe, especially if you never wear your hair straight, less is more! Keep it long and sexy!
THERE ARE SUMMER FRINGES AND WINTER FRINGES...TRUE !
As I said before, if you are not used to wearing a fringe it is best not to start in the summer. However if you have a fringe before you can try different styles no matter the time of year. In summer, generally, I would let the fringe be pushed and worn to the side. Sweating and perspiration makes the hair stick and look greasy. Also your forehead will not tan, then it simply becomes more embarrassing than anything else.
For example wearing a Bardot fringe, which can be separated in the middle is a great summer fringe. Then in winter, you could change it up by making the same style but a shorter version. To create a sharper 'daisy' style fringe.
MAINTAINING YOUR FRINGE IS A REAL DRAMA...FALSE!
A long curtain fringe requires no maintenance. It can be left to grow and split in half, or put on its side when it becomes too long and wear it as shape around your face. And if we want to keep your fringe intact, then just cut it about every 2 to 3 weeks. Of course shorter sharpen fringes do need more maintenance.
Your hair stylist can always advise you on what best suits you, your lifestyle, your hair type, your mood etc.....
