Change your style with a fringe, hide a few wrinkles & make yourself look younger

The fringe: such a classic hairstyle and one that comes in so many shapes and styles that there is zero chance of not finding the one that is right for you.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT FRINGE FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE

 Heart-Shaped Face

While your immediate reaction would be to downplay your chin, I advise going for a more graphic fringe to complement your shape. "A lot of people have an exaggerated view of what their faces look like, and the thing I like to do is almost push it forward and get a much harder fringe so it looks really intentional, If you're gonna do it, go for it, and make it strong. For those who would rather balance the effect instead of emphasizing it, a soft, choppy look like Naomi Campbell's impeccable fringe is your best bet. That sort of fringe is so soft and sexy, and you can leave a little more on the face, or push some away. 

Oval or Long Face

Oval face shapes like Eva Longoria's can get away with a variety of looks, but it's the airy, below-the-brow style that proves to be the most sensual. What's crucial is the choppiness toward the end of the fringe ... It should be fine enough that, although it's going over your eyebrow, you should still be able to see it. This style calls attention to your cheekbones, and if your shape is on the longer side, the wisps can actually help widen the face.

 

CHOOSING THE RIGHT FRINGE FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE

Round Face

The right fringe ... Namely a choppy, above-the-brow version...will give round faces like Felicity Jones' added structure. If you have a small or slightly rounder face, a short bang will bring attention on the eyes. It's one of my favorite looks because it's really youthful, and gives length to the face.

Square Face

Similar to those with round faces, square shapes are also flattered by a shorter fringe, so channel your inner pin-up girl and opt for a style similar to Tatyana Ali's. The shorter bang would absolutely work for a square face. If you want a more severe look, instead of angling your bangs from the middle and getting longer, you can do the opposite and have them shorter on the sides going inwards, It's slightly harder, and I think that it looks more fashion-forward, so you have to have confidence to wear it.

If Your Forehead Is On the Small Side

Contrary to popular belief, those who have foreheads on the smaller side, like Taraji P. Henson, can still rock a fringe. My advise  to keep them short. I love short bangs that frame the face, because the shorter the bangs, the longer your forehead will be. A side-swept look , which I refere to as gamine fringe is another option if you prefer a style that isn't so blunt. It's almost like pieces of hair getting slightly chunky and going to the side, There's choppiness going on, and it's good for basically any shaped face.

If Your Forehead Is On the Larger Side

Those with high foreheads like Rihanna's, can get away with longer fringes, just be sure to follow the golden rule of getting fringe that starts in the middle, and gets longer toward the ends and sides. It's the most versatile, and it's the softest, sexiest look, I  recommend this look for beginners. That's a great starting place, and once you have that, you can become more adventurous...add or remove a little more length, or make it choppy.
