11 Mid-Length Haircuts With a Fringe That Are Too Tempting Not to Try

Updated 09/14/18

The lob-with-fringe combo is a modern classic. A mid-length cut is super flattering, and a fringe can also add some much-needed face-framing structure. The specific mid-length style (to layer or not to layer?) is up to you; for this, we recommend seeking out a hairdresser you trust. As for the fringe, you can opt for a soft side sweep like Emma Stone's, a piecey full fringe like Mila Kunis's or something wispy and barely-there like Rihanna's.

The great thing about having mid-length hair with a fringe is that you can find a cut that suits any hair type, from fine to full and curly. Don't believe us? Check out these 11 oh-so-different fringe-adorned mid-length haircuts for all the proof you need. And if you're after more specific shoulder-length hairstyles, check these out, while you'll find more fringe specific ideas here.

This blunt shoulder-skimming haircut complete with piecey full fringe is all kinds of wonderful. Mila Kunis is giving us serious hair envy. It's actually a fake fringe, but we'd totally take this look to our hairdresser as inspiration. Re-create that wave with a medium-barrel tong like the T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand (£200).

A long side fringe like Emma Stone's is seriously versatile; you can wear it swept to the side or parted down the centre if you want to disguise it.

How cool does Rihanna's modern mullet look? A piecey fringe like this look seriously chic and is pretty low maintenance.

An eyelash skimming fringe is seriously sultry. Ramp up the shine like Kerry Washington has by misting your styled hair with shine spray.

A blunt fringe can give the illusion that your hair is thicker than it is. Make like actress Malene Wadel and take the plunge.

Just like Kerry Washington, Nicole Richie makes a strong case for the textured full fringe. We're crushing on this bronze hair colour too.

Felicity Jones's strong side part gives her shoulder-length hair a strong focal point and stops her beach waves from looking too casual. Want to get that texture into your hair? Try Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion (£23).
