Should you get a fringe? Azzuro discusses one of the most common questions we are asked at our Larnaca hair salon. There are pros and cons for getting a fringe (or bangs as our trans Atlantic friends refer to it!)
Let’s take a look and help you make up your mind!
1) YES, YOU WILL NEED LOTS OF TRIMS
Hair grows about a half an inch a month which can completely change the look of your fringe – and your vision if it starts to grow over your eyes! If you opt for a fringe you need to be prepared for plenty of short trips to the salon. Luckily at Azzuro Hair Design we offer free fringe trims for our clients so cost will not be an issue – just make sure you set aside 10 minutes every few weeks to keep it in great shape. Whatever you do though… never… never ever cut it yourself!
2) EXTRA STYLING TIME IS ESSENTIAL
You will need to dedicate extra time for hair styling when you have a fringe. At Azzuro Hair Design we advise clients to think about their lifestyle before opting for a fringe. Remember gone will be the days when you tie your hair up in a ponytail… your fringe won’t be tied up! A fringe is the main focal point of your new style, so you will need to dedicate the right amount of time and products to it!
3) NOT ALL FACE SHAPES SUIT FRINGES
If you have a longer face shape then you should avoid a blunt cut for a softer look or go for a side swept fringe to balance out a round face or larger jaw line. There are lots of fringes to choose from so it doesn’t have to be a drastic choice.
4) NOT ALL HAIR TYPES SUIT A FRINGE
If your hair is thick, straight and silky then it is probably perfect for a fringe however if it is fine and curly then probably not. Speak to the stylists at Azzuro Hair Design for an honest opinion on whether your hair type should adopt this style. Remember it is difficult to straighten hair into a fringe as it can end up sticking out from your face so if your hair tends to be unruly we might advise against it.
5) COLOR MAKES A DIFFERENCE
If you are prone to roots and do not like getting your colour touched up regularly then a fringe can make it look so much worse. If, however you regularly get your colour done then it will not be a problem. At Azzuro Hair Design we can add depth and shine to your fringe with carefully placed high or low lights.
