What to know before going for bangs

Share this:

Bored of your current hairstyle and fancy a change?  A fringe could be just the thing. The right one on your face shape will make your eyes sparkle, show off your amazing cheekbones or help hide a high forehead. Today's freshest looks show off the three main types: Sideswept, brow-skimming and short, sharper bangs.


HELLO! Online seek expert advice from Style Director at Nicky Clarke Manchester, Zeb Luke Gethen.Types of fringe Full – From a strong, heavy full fringe – think Lily Allen – to the softer, more grown out look – Kate Moss. Nearly everyone can wear a full fringe as long as it is tailored to you. Just remember fringe to face ratio, ideally you need more face than fringe! Sweeping – Can be worn at any length to suit you and works great with movement in the hair. Cameron Diaz has worn her hair in this sexy style.Short – Not for the faint-hearted. Think Katy Perry, a high maintenance fringe that makes a huge statement. One of the first things we tend to think about when debating a radical haircut change, like a fringe, is face shape. But our hair type is key, too. Pointers to help you along the way: • Have you got wild curls, pin straight fine hair or something in-between? • Does your hairline have a cowlick or other strong movements? • Does your hair grow back away from you face or straight down, always falling on to your face? • Ask yourself what style of fringe would best suit your lifestyle and your look, and how much time you want to spend on your hair in the morning.• What do you want your fringe to say about you and how much of a statement do you want to make? • Consult a hairdresser. Nicky Clarke have salons throughout the UK and have recently opened a new venue in Mayfair, London.
