Everything you need to know about gringes—grown-out fringes

Written by Fatema HabibNov 07, 2019

Up until now, cropped hair was all about lobs, bobs and shags. Well, the good news is that there’s a new addition to the mini tress trend. It’s called gringes! Confused? Let us simplify it for you. Gringes are nothing but grown-out fringes. When you notice someone flaunting their in-betweeny bangs with panache, they are actually pulling off the gringes style.

This face-framer hairstyle can be flattering for any and every face shape. If you’re sporting bangs or fringes, then you’re already a step closer to grown-out gorgeousness. Apart from adding more oomph to your fringes, gringes prove to be beneficial in many other ways. They can hide skin imperfections like bumps and acne, unruly brows and tired AF eyes. And that’s not all! They don’t need to be trimmed as often as bangs and don’t need much looking after. So, if you don’t want to take the risk with choppy bangs, gringes are your best bet this season.

Here’s how you can quickly style your gringes:

Step 1: Clip the longer lengths of your hair to the side and concentrate only on your gringe.

Step 2: Start by spritzing a few pumps of a sea salt spray. We suggest you use the TONI & GUY Hair Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray for added texture and hold.

Step 3: Reach for your blow-dryer and with the help of a flat, narrow paddle brush, blast the first section of your front hair in a downward motion. Place the brush diagonally, sweeping out the ends to achieve a stunning flick.

Step 4: Similarly, blow-dry the top layer of your hair, but don’t overdo it or else you’ll end up with a pumped up 80s’ look.

Step 5: Finish off by hitting the cool button on your blow dryer. This will set your style in place and add shine to your tresses.
