Bang-ing Fringes! Different Styles and How they Look

Updated: Feb 5, 2019

Fringes never seem to go out of style, but with how many different ways to cut fringes, it can be hard to know which one you want. There are quite a few different ways on cutting a fringe that will be aesthetically pleasing for all face shapes. Some styles are more often shown on certain face shapes, but as long as you are confident and feeling beautiful, you will look like that style was built specifically for you!


BLUNT- Cut straight across the forehead. Blunt bangs are dramatic and bring attention to the eyes. Curling these under will create a very retro look. Blow-dry straight down with a paddle brush, or a round brush for volume, for a rounded retro look.

CHOPPY- Still a very full fringe but has a lot more texture and movement, great for wavy hair or a beachy, texture style.

PIXIE- These are very, very short, a mini fringe. Great for short pixie looks or more edgy for longer hair. This style helps open up the face and can make it appear lighter and brighter. A super cute and fun look.

CURTAIN- A modern version of the SHAGGY look, very similar to some of the styles Brigitte Bardot wore. Very soft, lots of fullness, enhancing the eyes and cheek bones. Blow Dry with a large round brush for volume. Great face framing while wearing the hair up as well.

SIDE-SWEPT – This is probably one of the most popular types of fringe. They come across your forehead on a diagonal, sweeping above the eyes or swooping longer to cover one eye. The soft, safe framing for all hair lengths and thicknesses. Great for those who don’t want a full fringe but are looking for something different and fun for long hair styles.

SHAGGY – The classic Bridgette Bardot look, who inspired our salon's name. These are worn longer over the brows, grazing the eye lashes, curving down around the eye, longer down around the cheek bone. A very couture look, sexy, soft and flattering.
