Fringe hairstyles have a separate fan club! Not everyone has an immediate liking for fringes. For all those who are not blessed with naturally straight hair may not really want to give fringes a shot. Because the pain of straightening them each time you step out is REAL!
But for all those who have fringes and want to switch your hair game every time you head out, here’s a treat! We’ve curated a bunch of sassy, chic and elegant fringe hairstyles that have the power to make heads turn. Read on and recreate these fun hairstyles yourself...
1. Half bun
A half bun with front fringes makes for one of the cutest fringe hairstyles ever. On days when you can’t decide whether you want to pull all your hair together in an updo or leave it down, then just opt for a half bun. This half-up half-down hairstyle is perfect for anyone with thick hair. Wear it on a casual day at work or on a fancy date night. It is one hairstyle that truly needs no occasion.
Start by detangling your hair with a wide tooth comb. Then, add some texture and dimension to your hair by spritzing the Toni&Guy Casual : Sea Salt Texturising Spray all over your hair. Gather half of your hair in line with your temple, make sure you leave out your fringes, and tie it into a ponytail. Lastly, twirl and roll up the half ponytail to make a bun and secure it with a few bobby pins. Finish off by straightening your fringes and adding some loose waves to the rest of your hair.
2. Double braids
Although double braids instantly remind you of school, this updated version can look cool and edgy even today. How, you ask? If you have light fringes, then loose double braids can certainly give any other hairdo a run for their money. This fringe hairstyle is just perfect when you want to keep hair off your face, especially during workouts. If you have shoulder-length hair, then opt for this fun hairdo once in a while to switch things up a little.
Part your hair at the center. Comb each side until it is smooth and free of knots. Now, tie one side of the hair using a hair tie so that it doesn’t interfere while braiding the other side. Create 3 sections and start braiding your hair like you normally would. Continue braiding till you reach the bottom of your hair. Secure it with a hair tie. Repeat the same on the other side. Comb your fringes well and straighten it if needed.
3. High ponytail
While ponytails have been around for decades, there have been several versions of it that have made this hairstyle widely loved. Ponytails are not just easy to create but also super versatile and need no special occasion. From wearing a basic ponytail to the gym to amping it up for a party night, there is simply no end to the number of ways in which you can style a ponytail. Amp up the famous Ariana Grande sky-high ponytail by adding fringes to the hairstyle and you’ll have an all-new look ready in seconds. This fringe hairstyle is for all those who have long hair.
Brush your hair gently to remove any knots or tangles. Pull all your hair together, leaving your fringes aside. Smoothen out your hair with a brush or comb and add some gel or serum to keep flyaways at bay and to give your hairstyle a smoother finish. For a sky-high hairdo, place your ponytail accordingly and secure it with a hair tie. To hide your hair tie, take a small section of hair from the bottom of your ponytail and carefully wrap it around the elastic. Comb the front fringes and straighten it if needed.
4. Baby braids
When nothing works, baby braids come to the rescue! On days when you just don’t know what to do with your hair, then simply add a few baby braids and attack. This fringe hairstyle is sure to look bomb, especially on a beach vacay. The best part about styling your hair into baby braids is that you don’t have to be a pro at braiding your hair. Baby braids require hardly a few strands which means you don’t have to struggle with pulling all your hair together into a braid. Phew! This sassy fringe hairstyle is for all those with straight hair and side fringes.
To begin with, comb your hair to remove any knots or tangles. Straighten if needed so they look well-kempt and polished. Add a smoothing gel or serum to keep flyaways at bay. Now take a 3-inch section of your hair in line with your temple and start braiding it. Create one to two very tiny braids on each side and secure them with elastics. Let the fringes fall as is. And, done!
If you want to avoid the sleek look that comes with tying your hair into a bun, it’s best to have fringes. A few face-framing strands can make all the difference in taking your bun game a few notches higher. The best part about wrapping your hair into a bun is that it does not require much time or effort. This easy-peasy fringe hairstyle can be worn on a casual day at work, to your workout session or to a night-out with your girlfriends. The chic and laid-back vibe of this hairstyle is what makes it stand out from the rest.
Start by brushing or combing your hair to remove any tangles. Flip your hair over your head, and then rapidly flip it back again. Doing so creates volume for your bun, making the bun less severe and tight. Then, pull all your hair together and hold it in a ponytail. For a high bun, use your fingers to brush your hair into a high ponytail on the top of your head. Use a sea salt spray or dry shampoo to add texture to your hairstyle. Now, twist your hair clockwise to make a bun. If your hair is too unruly, then secure it with a ponytail before making a bun. Use a hair tie to secure the bun in place. For an extra bit of style, have a few ends of the hair sticking out. Smoothen your fringes and voila!
6. Crown braid
This elaborate hairstyle definitely needs a special occasion. A crown braid can look even better with front fringes. Team this fringe hairstyle with your glitzy gowns and blingy lehengas either to a cocktail or reception party. While acing a crown braid may look like a task, it is worth the effort. To add more oomph to your hairstyle, you can add a few delicate accessories and slay.
Part your hair down the middle and brush gently to remove any knots. Take a small section from the right half at the nape of your neck and begin a crossing-under braid, perpendicular to your center back part. Wrap your starter braid towards your face and begin to incorporate hair into a Dutch braid. Continue a standard crossing-under braid until all your hair is incorporated. Gently pull the braid apart to make it appear fuller, and optionally pull out some face-framing strands. Straighten those bangs for a more polished look.
