The best decision you'll make today!
A fringe, or bangs, always seem like a good idea at the time. An instant update, much like dyeing your hair the latest colour. Coco Chanel even said herself, ‘a women who cuts her hair is about to change her life’. And that's what we all hope for. You leave the salon, after your fringe haircut, with your perfectly preened bangs, feeling confident. All is peachy. But then you wake up the next morning with a new fringe, a rebelious one. Because the thing is, having bangs is more high maintenance than Mariah Carey.
Don’t fret - here’s how to manage your fringe:
1. Never let your fringe dry naturally
Hair has a mind of its own and will do its own thing. As soon as you jump out of the shower, comb your damp fringe through, then grab a round blow dry brush and a hairdryer and get drying.
2. Stop your fringe sticking to your forehead
Dry shampoo should be on you at all times. Spritz it underneath your fringe (on the side that touches your forehead) not only will it stop greasy hair causing breakouts on your forehead, but the dry shampoo separates each hair so that it looks fuller and fresher.

3. Don't put too much product on your fringe
Your fringe is much thinner than the rest of your mane, so will be weighed down by product way more easily. Conditioner is a no go - that's a one way ticket to greasy-town. Hairspray tends to work best, as it’s light enough. If your hair is particularly thin, spray onto a a fat blusher brush then swipe the brush over your fringe.
4. Make the most of free fringe trims
If your hairdresser is a babe (and most of them are), then pop in to see them regularly to take advantage of the free fringe trim. If you insist on doing it yourself, then follow these 'how to cut your own hair' rules.
So who is up for a cut?
