How to look bangin’

Fringes are a really big trend this season but so many people are scared that it might not suit them! The key to the perfect fringe is to find the right shape for your face. A thick fringe can make you look fuller whereas a wispy fringe can make your look. We take a look at the most common face shapes and the best fringes that suit them!

Square Face

eab85bd5785903bf572dc7708c7b4d7e

  Eye grazing bangs, tapered on the sides will add a soft element to square face shapes.

Ask your stylist to cut it just below the brows, leaving the heaviest pieces on the  sides so they don’t mask your eyes. Center strands can be feathery allowing a little forehead to peek through so your bangs won’t overwhelm your face.

Round Face

swift_a

A gentle arch fringe will compliment soft, feminine features. Fringes often tend to make round faces appear fuller but the way to avoid this is to find the right shape for your face.

A graphic, curved shape fringe will flatter your bone structure. Ask your stylist for a thick fringe rather than a wispy fringe to avoid looking fuller.

Oval Face

fringe-bangs-olivia-wilde-56a080d25f9b58eba4b11134

Those with oval shaped faces are lucky enough to be able to pull off any fringe as every type of fringe is flattering on you!

The most requested fringe that will accentuate your best facial features without feeling bulky are airy, pin-straight ones.

Our stylists recommend asking for a fringe that hits between the brow and the eyelash and are no longer than the edges as this will allow you to wear them swept aside or straight with a middle parting!

Heart Shape

26d380a82e5983f9eee281cc06853715

Heart-shaped faces are often top heavy and you need a balancing effect to draw down towards the eyes. So the ideal fringe for those with heart-shaped faces are side-swept bangs.

Ask your stylist for a layered, feathered bang where the shortest pieces hit the arch of your eyebrows and the longest meet the outer corner of your eye – the most flattering look for your face!

Hair is a major part of our lives and the most important thing to remember is if it makes you happy, go for it! These are just guides to find a shape that suits you, they are not definitive and we recommend you have a consultation with your stylist before jumping in.

Messy Updos – The Best Style for your Big Day

Pinterest is busy with bridal inspo at the moment and the most common fixture on people’s boards are messy bridal updos. The Pins for this more relaxed look sky rocketed by a whopping 1247% according to Pinterest’s 2018 Wedding Report.

With the excitement of the Royal Wedding, summer brides are taking a massive inspiration from the new Ductchess of Sussex’s hair choice – the messy updo.

screen-shot-2018-05-19-at-7-30-54-am-1526729477

Royal and celebrity stylist, Richard Ward tells Get the Gloss  how to achieve the best messy updo for your big day.

Richard says,

“Everyone suits an updo but it needs to be tailored to your face shape”

Square Shape

If you have a square shape face, Richard suggests a looser updo with loose face framing pieces to soften the angles of the face. This creates a stunning romantic look and giving you a more feminine vibe.

Heart Shape 

e596bce8167c4dc52f264896860cb91a

Image Courtesy of Pinterest

If you have high cheek bones and a heart shaped face, your cheek bones can be accentuated by keeping hair off the face.

For all the short hair brides, don’t feel like you can’t opt for this hair style. Tong hair first, regardless of length as this will add volume and texture which will make it easier to style.

 510d838ce22fdf3a29e421182f100167

Your first trial should be at least two hours long as this will give you enough time with your stylist to discuss different looks and styles.
