Citing fashionable models like Karlie Kloss and Josephine Skriver (image above), Vogue recently published an article noting that “The Big Bang Is Back’ and “the supermodel set is settling the debate in favor of an eyelash-grazing length.” Want to join them? It is possible to grow out a fringe without wearing hair pinned back for six months. The key is to embrace some interim steps, reshaping your bangs instead of just letting them go wild. Get our top tips below. 

Step 1: Add texture. When your bangs hit the length just below the brow, remove weight from the ends with razoring or point cutting. This will reduce weight so your less likely to feel like you’re getting stabbed in the eyes and break up the edge, so the edge is softer and more flattering.

Step 2: Create curvature. As the length approaches the cheekbone, cut in a curved, rainbow shape, removing length from the center. This shape will allow bangs to part and separate, falling to the outside edges of the face.

Step 3: Blend into layers. Once your fringe reaches the tip of your nose it’s time to blend it into layers or a face frame. This can be done at a steep angle to avoid creating a choppy look, or along a string long for a shag effect. Either way, getting rid of the disconnection between your bangs and the rest of your shape will make what used to be your bangs into a part of your overall shape.
