How To Find The Best Fringe For Your Face Shape

It's one thing getting a fringe, but looking as effortlessly chic as Kate Moss or Alexa Chung isn't always so easy. The key to getting this look right? Choosing a style to perfectly frame your face shape.


We spoke to Ben Moth, art director at Easton Regal Hairdressing, to find out his top tips on finding the fringe for you.

"Fringes can update your hairstyle in seconds but they also enhance your face shape completely," Ben Moth told us. "There's a style out there for everyone but it's important to find the cut you're comfortable with."

So, which face shape are you?

Try a longer peek-a-boo style fringe that ideally reaches the cheek bone to help to elongate the face. Look to Daisy Lowe for inspiration.

Ladies with long faces are best suited to long, full fringes, ideally eyebrow length and not any shorter. Edie Campbell is the celebrity to look if you're considering going for this style.

If you've got a heart-shaped face, count yourself lucky - you'll suit most fringes. The most complementary style would be something similar to Suki Waterhouse or Kate Moss' long curved fringe which accentuates the cheek bones.

Again, oval face shapes can pull off most fringes, but try to keep it on the longer side. Just like Alexa Chung, you can play with the shape and texture.

Whether you go long and full or side-swept, don't forget this blow-drying tip.

"Blow-dry from side to side and then under. This will remove any jump or kinks, allowing your fringe to sit flat and fall in place," Ben added.

And when your fringe starts growing out? Embrace it!
