Growing a fringe can be a great way to change your face shape without having to shave all your hair. A carefully selected fringe can be used to conceal large foreheads and shorten long face shapes.
But as with any game-changing styling trick, there’s scope to get it wrong. Like Javier Bardem in No Country for the Old Men wrong. Or Pete Wentz.
To ensure you don’t fall foul of the fringe, there are three things to consider: the length (a long fringe is good for rectangular or oval face shapes; a short one is better for round, squarer types); the volume (reaching high and pushing out; or left to sit close to the forehead); and the shape (rounded, or sharper and angular). Depending on your hair’s texture, density and the way it falls naturally, there’s a style of fringe to suit you.
