If you’ve ever thought about cutting a fringe, rest assured: the fringe is back in a big way. From Zooey Deschanel to Lea Michele, these celebrity hairstyles show you just how cute a fringe can be with the right styling. Whether you want a wispy side fringe or a bold and full fringe, you’ll find plenty of inspiration to take to your hairstylist with you.
Here are five of the best celebrity hairstyles with fringes to help you decide which fringe is best for you.
Rose Byrne’s sleek fringe
Rose looks amazing with her sleek, sophisticated fringe, framing her beautiful eyes and heart-shaped face perfectly.
To get this style, your fringe need to be cut straight so you can achieve a smooth line. Blow dry your fringe with a round brush to give them a little volume so they don’t just lay flat against your forehead. Apply a bit of smoothing serum to keep flyaways in checks. This fringe looks great with a natural style, a sporty ponytail or even an elegant updo.
Emma Stone’s choppy side fringe
Emma Stone shows how versatile a fringe can be, styling a sleek fringe into a choppy, side fringe. It’s a stylish twist on a classic fringe, and looks great whether you turn it into a hair up style or keep it down.
To get Emma’s look, ask your hairstylist to create a choppy fringe starting at the top of your head, so you have enough fringe to style to the side. You’ll need to apply some texturing product or gel, then blow dry them to the side. Working with them while they’re wet will help them shape to the side more easily. Tousle them for a cool, relaxed, look.
Lea Michele’s face-framing fringe
Lea Michele has incredible hair, and the perfect face for a fringe. She’s experimented with relaxed waves and straight styles The beautiful songstress has experimented with her long, chestnut hair by trying out relaxed waves, straight styles and different styles of fringe. This face-framing fringe may be our favourite.
The key to this look is to cut your fringe well above the brows and to blow dry them straight. If you allow your hair to dry naturally, the bangs will likely part and stick out at odd angles. Make sure you dry them flat and finish with a light mist of hairspray to tame flyways. Ask your hairstylist to cut some layers around your face to keep the look softer.
Zooey Deschanel’s heavy fringe
The queen of the fringe, Zooey Deschanel has turned the fringe into her signature look, making her doe eyes pop. In fact, when she showed up at a recent red carpet event with her fringe pulled back, she was virtually unrecognisable.
This heavy fringe should fall below your eyebrows – even touching the tops of your lashes (if you can stand it!). Use a round brush to blow dry the fringe, creating volume with rounded ends. If you leave longer pieces at the ends, allow them to fall and dry naturally, creating a bit of texture at the sides, which looks particularly striking if you pull your hair up into a bun or ponytail.
Kelly Osbourne’s block fringe
Kelly Osbourne has created her own unique, rocking style, which is often accentuated by her distinctive hair colours – from lavender to grey. While she changes up her hairstyles often, the look we love is her gorgeous block fringe.
This fringe is easy to cut and style. The fringe should be cut full but not too heavy, and they should be straight across and hang just above or right at the eyebrows. The fringe should be blow dried straight, with a smoothing serum applied to keep them in place. Comb them slight off center to create a slight part when you want to mix it up, and finish with a mist of hairspray at the part to keep it separate.
