Getting the Fringe June 24 2013

Kim Kardashian

If you’ve been spending any time on Instagram with your iPhone 5, you know that fringe is definitely making its way back in trend, with celebrities, musicians, and everybody in between choosing to go for some bangs this summer. So what types are going to be hot in the coming months?

The blunt cut. From Kim Kardashian to Zooey Deschanel, a blunt bang is the next big thing. Perfect with any length hair, and giving the face that “super cute, kinda mysterious” vibe, it can work for anyone, but especially for those with longer, narrower faces. For those with less-long faces, parting the bangs in the middle slightly can break up the cut a bit, softening the edges. If you love the idea of blunt bangs, but actually prefer to see stuff, have the stylist go back in with scissors and cut into the bangs to break it up a bit. Your vision is restored and the look is edgier. Show her a few pictures on your iPhone 5 of what you’re looking for before she picks up the sheers.

The side bangs. We don’t care how long these have been around (what, five years or so now), they’re just pretty. Keep ‘em long, with the shortest piece just grazing your brow bone, and blend them into your cut for a super soft, feminine look. This is perfect for the laid-back spring and summer styles that are hot right now, and go well with wavy, texturized hair all while making it easy to keep a few face framing pieces out on days when you opt for a ponytail.
