The 15 Best Haircuts With a Fringe

Updated 01/27/18

If you don’t have a fringe, chances are you contemplate cutting it at least once every couple of months. The grass is always greener, right? If, however, you’ve finally decided to take the plunge, don’t glance at a pair of scissors until you’ve found your fringespiration. To give you said inspo, we combed through some of our favourite celebrity hairstyles where the fringe takes centre stage (in the best way).

Check out our favourite face-framing hairstyles below!

Parisian It girl Jeanne Damas makes hers look effortlessly cool by rocking undone bedhead with a parted fringe.

Got thin hair? A fringe is a great way to add the illusion of more volume and structure to your mane.

Cool girl Alexa Chung knows how to make a fringe work, no matter the style. Here, she mirrors Damas's chop but with a more beachy wave and severe part in her fringe. To get these textured waves, try scrunching Oribe Surfcomber Mousse (£18) into wet hair then leave to air dry, Alternatively, rough dry before wrapping sections of your hair loosely around a large curling iron, being sure to leave the ends out.

This look is great if you're trying to grow out your bob and your fringe. Creating soft waves throughout blends the look seamlessly.

A fringe looks great with a short cut, especially one with layers and added volume at the top like Halle Berry's former trademark 'do.

Conversely, this short pixie looks great laying flat against the head rather than mussed and textured like Halle's (though, as you can see, the beauty is that this cut can be worn either way!).

Michelle Williams's short chop is only complemented by her fringe and natural roots peeping through.

Curly-haired girls can wear a fringe, too. Rather than getting a blunt cut straight across, have your stylist cut vertically so that your fringe is feathered. This will help them lay much nicer and work with your curls rather than against them.

We also love the way fringe looks when the rest of the hair is styled. This low side braid showcases Lea Michele's fringe, which we think adds a certain element of glam to the 'do.

Another great style that works beautifully with a fringe is this half-up '60s-era style as seen here on Zooey Deschanel.

If you have thick hair, a fringe is your friend—we promise. But if you're not loving a blunt look, try growing them a bit longer and sweeping them to the side like Jen Garner so effortlessly does.

They also don't need to graze your eyebrows—make a chic statement with a shorter length, especially if you have a small face and don't want to feel buried by your fringe.

Jessica Biel's asymmetric fringe pairs perfectly with her long hair and gives off a bit more of a relaxed feel than a straight-across chop would.

Katie Holmes is channeling 1920s Chicago vibes with this angled bob and flirty fringe.

Karlie Kloss's famous sleek bob with her pushed-to-the-side fringe seems to be everywhere these days, and we can completely understand why. It's an adorable 'do that looks great on and off the red carpet, with minimal fuss required. Smooth your own strands with Ghd Gold Mini Styler (£109).
