If you’re a curly girl, you’ve probably heard the old adage that curly girls can’t wear a fringe. We’re here to tell you nothing could be further from the truth. Fringes are a fun, easy way to refresh a look. Here’s how to embrace a fringe. Make sure you let us know if you decide to rock a fringe!
How To Embrace A Fringe
If your face is square shaped, or you have a larger forehead, going heavier on a fringe is just the ticket. Ask your stylist for finer, more feathery bangs over your forehead that blend into longer fringes at the side of your temples. A good length is a fringe that just skims your eyebrow, but doesn’t hit your eyelashes.
For our curly girls with smaller foreheads, or a heart shaped face, a sideswept fringe creates some visual interest without overwhelming your features. Additionally, this is a really easy look to play around with, as you can adjust your part to see which way it looks best.
Rather than fighting your curls when it comes to styling your fringe, go with what you’ve got. Instead of fighting against your curls, or using a flatiron, allow your curls to air dry and see how they lie. Use your favorite styling products to help define your bangs, and allow your curl’s natural texture to shine through. You might find yourself surprised by how much you like it! Additionally, remember that bangs are a relatively low impact way to experiment with your curls. If you cut a fringe and decide you don’t love it, it won’t be long before they grow back out.
