Autumn/Winter 2013 Hair Trend: Fringe Frenzy

14/08/2014 16:33 | Updated 22 May 2015

Whether you're a fan of the fringe or not, there's just no getting around the fact that bangs are back for Autumn/Winter 2013.

That's good news if you've already got your Zooey Deschanel-inspired style in place, but if you haven't? That doesn't matter either. Most of the fringes from the A/W 13 catwalks were in fact fake (yes, really). Who wants to spend months growing hair out when clip-on fringes are on-trend?


For true fringe inspiration, there's no one better to look to than Karlie Kloss - the current queen of the crop and side-swept fringe style. Her hair got people talking at Burberry's A/W show, but she wasn't the only famous supermodel to cause a fringe frenzy.

Joan Smalls on the Emilio Pucci catwalk? Amazing. No one's hair looked glossier and those almost-over-the-eyes bangs? Sultry, sassy and sure to be seen on a lot of A-list names soon.

At Marc Jacobs, choppy, messy rock-chic styles looked edgy and easy-to-wear, but it was the power fringe seen backstage at Mary Katrantzou's London show that got us hooked.


Stylist Eugene Souleiman glued super-short blunt fringes to the front of every model's hairline. The result? "Slick and considered", he told us before the show.

"There's a danger that this look could be very 60s, Mary Quant style, but this is all about attitude", he added. "These fringes are just so versatile - you can make a strong statement but it's not forever".

So - ready to go for the chop (or find your own stick-on style?) Here's more inspiration from our favourite famous fringes:
