This textured fringe will work on just about everyone. Combining a short, choppy bang with a longer veiled overlay has a variety of advantages. The disconnected lengths break up weight, so you’re fringe won’t look heavy. Soft edges and asymmetry flatter a variety of face shapes and features. The shorter lengths underneath help the hair to lie smooth and minimize cowlicks. The longer pieces on top add interest and softness. This fun flirty bang is definitely worth a try.

Wear it down, as shown, from day to night, or simply wrap the tail into a bun for a quick evening look. For step-by-step instructions, click the style notes. –– Laura Martin
