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.

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.

Actress Hannah Britland shows how great this hair length looks on curly hair. We're totally into the barely-there fringe too.
We love how the waves and soft fringe bring out the lowlights in Alexis Bledel's hair.
