How would you describe this look?

This haircut with fringe bangs is a soft and effortless style. It uses an undercut to eliminate weight and keeps the fringe haircut longer and sweepy. The combination of short and long leaves her feeling sexy and unique.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Someone considering this look should be prepared for some light styling. A quick blow dry and some texturing paste for lift and separation. The cut requires a light trim every 6 weeks to keep it fresh.

Q&A with style creator, Jessica Fooskas
Stylist @ ARROJO Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe these fringe bangs as effortless and undone.

My favorite thing about this look is how versatile and easy it is to style. Blow dry it smooth for a more polished look, or let it air dry for a more lived-in look.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I use ARROJO Wave Mist and ARROJO Dry Shampoo to give this look the perfect amount of texture without looking too messy. Wave Mist is perfect for spraying in and letting the hair air dry to enhance natural texture, or it is great to blow dry with to give the perfect amount of grit to the hair.

Lastly, we finished with the dry shampoo as a dry texture spray that also absorbs oil! It is also totally clear so it won’t show up on the dark roots.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I think this is a great style for anyone with a low maintenance routine. The cut can be tweaked to someone with finer hair versus thicker hairI have done it on both types!

This look is ideal for anyone looking for more volume and shape around the face. I like bangs that don’t add more work to the styling process, but can just air dry with the rest of the hair.

Rounded Fringe Bangs

Psychedelic Yet Coiffed

Q&A with style creator, Sam Lopez
Hairstylist @ Epic The Salon in Los Angeles, CA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this as a psychedelic and shaggy cut with fringe bangs, yet coiffed.

There are so many things to love about this look. It’s edgy, gender neutral, and versatile. I love the freedom this look exudes. My favorite thing about it is that it’s fun to do as a stylist!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Be sure to find a stylist who is comfortable with this cut and enjoys doing it. The love has to be there! Keep in mind that this cut is best for carving out weight in thick-haired people, although it can add volume and movement to skinny-haired clients.

Be sure to find products that enhance your natural texture so you can wash and go while still looking fab. For extra drama, blow the hair out with a round brush, diffuse to add body, or wrap your hair around a curling iron for a beachy wave look.

French Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Victoria Qualiana
Hairstylist @ Salon & Spa In The Tower in Clarence, NY


How would you describe this look?

I describe this look as Persian chic, or the classic French fringe bangs. It reminds me of a Jane Birkin blunt but textured.

My favorite part of this look is that its classic French girl style with the blunt but textured fringe sweeping the eyebrow. A client who is considering this look would need dry shampoo to give their fringe an airy texture while keeping excess oils out.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is for someone that wants to change things up a bit bring attention to their eyes. Have a round brush handy, but a naturally curly bang is in style too. It just depends on what look you are going for.

French women keep things as effortless as possible. As far as products go, I would recommend some dry shampoo for the next day to give more of an airy texture and to last throughout the day!

Rounded Bob with Wispy Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Elizabeth Salamanca
Hairstylist & Make-up Artist @ Watson & Bailey Hair in Livermore, CA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this haircut as a deconstructed bob with fringe cut bangs. There is a strong foundational shape with unconventional and piecey layers to give it a lot of movement. This, along with the fringe, gives it an edgy and modern vibe which I love!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look can be worn by almost anyone as long as they aren’t afraid of product or some styling! We used all Unite Hair products to style this bob. We used 7 Seconds Leave-In, 7 Seconds Blowdry Creme, and Expanda Foam to blow dry, along with a flat brush to get lift at the roots and to smooth the ends. We finished with a flat iron and used Glossing Spray and Tricky Spray to give shine and texture to the hair. If you have very thick hair, I suggest also using a styling cream to really piece out the ends and tame any unruly hair.

This haircut works best for those who want to add width to their face because the fringe gives it a square face shape. If you want to elongate the face, I recommend going for a longer fringe that hits below the cheekbone.

If you are someone who is wash and wear with your hair, this cut might not be for you as it does require some styling in order to look its best!

Long Shag with Curtain Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Claire Higgs
Art Director & Founder @ Nylon Hair Artists in Reading, UK


How would you describe this look?

This is a longer length shag cut with fringe bangs with a 90s vibe and texture. The inspiration for this look was taken from an amazing shoot in Love Magazine on Rita Ora.

Its versatility is key. This is a bang style that is easy to maintain which enables clients to achieve the look effortlessly!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Lengths surrounding the face can be altered depending on lifestyle or shape of your face.

Bumble and bumble’s Don’t Blow It was used to air dry and sections were twisted to increase movement. Alternatively, this shape could be tonged for more volume with Bumble and bumble’s Full Foam Mousse.

This shape is pretty low maintenance, so clients love it!

Modern Edgy Shag with Light Fringe

Stylist @ Scott Miller Salon in Rochester, NY


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this modern shag with fringe bangs. I think my favorite part about the modern shag is that it has the edginess of a shag from the layers and fringe, but with more versatility because the layers start off longer and are blended more into the rest of the haircut.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Rock your natural texture. This haircut is all about the movement of the layers and fringe, so find products to enhance whatever your hair naturally does and use those products to show off all of the pieces the cut has to offer.

Heavy Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Marcus Waite
Stylist @ Ty Alexander Salon 2 in Newport Beach, CA


How would you describe this look?

This look is inspired by the bohemian 70s hairstyle with fringe bangs.

My favorite thing about this look is the heavy fringe . She came in with bangs she was kind of growing out, so I suggested more fringe to fill in the recession areas and make a flow to the sides. Next time we may go a bit heavier!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This first thing to consider with this look is suitability. My client has an oval face shape. If she had wide cheekbones, I might have adjusted where the weight of the fringe sits on her face. Hair type is an issue if you want to wear the fringe smooth. I love fringe with texture, but this must be discussed the ith stylist to see what’s appropriate for your face and what exact look you want.

A businesswoman may not want to wear the same fringe as a surfer, but a good stylist will help determine what is fitting for your hair. I find some women don’t care for hair on the forehead or in the eyes while other women kind of like it.

A heavy fringe definitely isn’t for everyone, but it looks amazing on the right person.

Textured Blunt Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Eva Maliones
Assistant @ Trio Salon Chicago in Chicago, IL


How would you describe this look?

I call this a textured blunt fringe bang! It’s a pretty straightforward and classic bang. I modernized it by giving it a softer feel using a technique called point cutting.

My favorite part about it is that it still moves and flows, even with a blunt edge!

Any advice for someone considering it?

My advice is to just go for it! This look is super easy to style with a classic Denman brush which has a bit of a curve around the edges to give it that beveled effect. I would also use a styling cream or a little hairspray with a flexible hold to keep frizz down and hold the shape.

This type of fringe is flattering on an oval, round, diamond or triangular shaped face. It definitely adds interest to a hairstyle whether it is short or long and can either be styled chic or edgy!

Q&A with style creator, Marie Kelly Decayette
Hairstylist @ Privé Salon in Orlando, FL


How would you describe this look?

This is a pixie cut with fringe bangs – always shorter on the sides and back with the front left longer. It’s a short, chic playful style for a woman with confidence. What I love about it is how chic and easy is. The softness of the shorter sides. This client wears glasses (not wearing them for picture), so I got the longer length in front to sit just right at the corner of the brow. It looks effortless and not collapsed in her glasses.

Get a tuckable length just behind the ear if need be. She is a mom and an entrepreneur – looks great in both roles.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Have confidence. I always say “you wear the hair, the hair doesn’t wear you. ”

The products I used are shampoo and conditioner, Oribe’s gold lust, Oribe’s straight away (wavy hair and control), and Oribe’s flash form (for volume and texture). For styling, I used Babyliss pro blowdryer with Ibiza medium or large boar bristle brush to smooth it out.

This shapes with all hair types. Wear it straight or natural waves of curls. It’s best on heart-shaped, oval, and square-shaped faces. Draws it up away from the jawline.

It’s good for a broad spectrum of lifestyles – home, office, or night on the town. Short hair gives off the air in ease. Maintaining the shape is important. Hair grows faster than you think. Generally 4 to 6 weeks between haircuts.

Blunt Bob with Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Sophie Orr
Stylist & Art Direction @ Muse Hair & Beauty Salon in Vancouver, BC


How would you describe this look?

This fringe bangs haircut is classy with a side of fun. It’s not too stuffy of a bob, as there’s enough texture (even though it’s one length and no layers). You can wear it tossed and shaken up or sleek and sophisticated. That’s probably what I love most about this look. Adding a fringe adds character to the frontal area, but this look can also be just as fun without a fringe as well.

Any advice for someone considering it?

It’s fairly easy, takes no time to blow dry. If you want it to be completely fuss-free, I would suggest to not get a fringe. Fringes can require an extra five mins in the morning to control that “bedhead bangs” look. They’re always on display since it’s the main focal point of your hairstyle, so you no longer have the luxury of pulling all of your hair back and off of your face.

Cute Fringe Bangs for Short Hair

Q&A with style creator, Carly Anne Bigham
Hair & Makeup Artist @ Carly Bigham Hair Stylist in Rushville, IL


How would you describe this look?

This fringe bang cut is fun, simple, and sassy. The cutest thing about this color and cut is that the color comes so soft, all while the haircut gives this color life and texture. Also, the fringe style is super sassy! I’m digging the bangs, and I’m so glad they are coming back.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Have a good leave-in, heat protectant, and a good hold texture spray to give the bangs and all around cut texture. If you have a square jawline, a long, layered fringe bang cut can help to soften and balance your features. If you have a round or oval face I would also go with a textured long bang.

If you’re down for something more daring, try medium bangs, which are longer than micro bangs but shouldn’t quite hit your eyebrows. There is also the above the eyebrow bangs. Those are definitely on the wild side. Oval and heart-shaped faces would pair well with blunt bangs. I believe anyone could pull off this look. Rock it. You go girl.

Long Hair with Long Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Crystal Clem
Stylist @ Spa Isbell in New Orleans, LA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe my client’s look as relaxed and classic, yet sexy. My favorite thing about the look is the “wispiness” and movement of the fringe bangs.

Cutting a fringe can be tricky because it’s easy to go short and blunt really quickly! The key is starting out a bit longer and slowly working your way up to the desired length. Softening the ends with the “point cutting technique” gives the added movement and wispiness.

Lastly, a mistake I see all too often is a fringe that has been cut outside the natural hairline, resulting in a really harsh and unnatural look.

Any advice for someone considering it?

A long fringe bang works especially well on clients with longer faces, and/or larger foreheads. As far as styling products, dry shampoo is really helpful for keeping a fringe fresh and off of your forehead. If you have any wave or curl to your hair, be prepared to run a flat iron over your fringe, especially on humid days.

Short Textured Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Marisa DiMarcantonio
Hairstylist @ BLue Hair Studio in Huntington Valley, PA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a long textured cut and my favorite thing about it is the short fringe bang.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend Microweb Viber to create the soft piecey texture and a little Sebastian Shaper to finish.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is a great option for anyone looking for more shape and fullness around the face. The short fringe creates more focus on the eyes and cheekbones. It is ideal for fine to medium textures.

This look is for the stylish client who willing to work at it and is good with texture product.

Jaw-Length Blunt Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Andrea Ibanez
Student @ Paul Mitchell The School in San Antonio, TX


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I’d describe this look as a blunt yet textured bob with fringe bangs.

I started with a square one-length cut, using a mixture of point cutting and a little razor cutting in order to give some edgy texture. I also did some point cutting in the fringe area just to give them a little more of a wisp in the front of the face.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I used all Paul Mitchell products for this style. I started by blow drying with the Marula Oil 3-1 Styling Cream because we live in Texas and humidity is our worst enemy!

Once I blew out her hair to a very straight and sleek finish, I used a bit of Invisiblewear Dry Shampoo in brunette at the base to give the hair a little bit of a grit since she had fresh clean hair. I finished the look off with some Awapuii Wild Ginger Shine Spray to give it some shine.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look could work for all hair types if styled correctly, but like every hairstyle, having a certain texture always makes things easier. In this case, I would recommend this look for anyone with straighter hair because then this look would be a little more low maintenance when styling.

This look can be worn sleek and more sophisticated, or styled with a texturizing spray for an edgier look.

Light Wispy Fringe Bang

A few light wispy fringe bangs add softness to a chop. Because of its thin appearance, it’s pretty low maintenance. Taking care of the fringe is way easier if it’s not too big or thick. The fringe also gives a great style to any hairstyle, so give it a try!

Choppy Fringe Bangs

Adding choppy fringe bangs brings out extra details to the entire hairstyle. They make the chop looking fresher than it is. Such a fringe also upgrades the tresses without going through a drastic change.
