It’s official. Fringes are back in style.
Tell you mom, tell your sister, tell your BFF.
The beauty of a fringe is that there is a style out there that suits every face shape. Whether you have a square, heart, or a round face, there is a style out there that will work for you. It may take some trial and error, but you’re guaranteed to find your perfect match
Pretty much the entire population suits a fringe – but it’s all about how it frames your face and where it ends. It’s important to stop and think about how a fringe changes the illusion of your face. If you have a longer fringe, it can accentuate your cheekbones or skim your eyebrows and make them look virtually invisible.
When you’re choosing your bangs, the most important thing to do is to stop and consider your face shape and the jaw line that you have.
The go-to fringe style for 2021 is the classic style of a cropped and chopped fringe. It’s true that fringes generally work best with longer hair, but they’re also the perfect match for a long bob or even a pixie cut. When choosing your fringe, you want to stop and consider where it sits on your face.
What will make or break your fringe is where it sits on your forehead. You either want to place it halfway across your forehead at your brow bone or keep it shorter in the centre and keep the sides longer by a few centimetres.
When in doubt, the best thing to do is to look for some celebrity inspiration. Find someone who has the same face shape and a similar bone structure to your face. You can then use their different hair styles and fringes as a point of reference to help you find a style that will flatter your own face. If you’re still struggling to decide, your hair stylist is usually the best person to turn to for advice.
Our guide goes through some of the most popular hairstyles with bangs to give you inspiration for your next haircut. This guide is packed full of ten celebrity inspiration photos, so it’s worth bookmarking this page and coming back when you’re getting ready for your next haircut.
If there’s one person who can rock any hairstyle, it’s Elizabeth Olsen. The actress has changed up her hairstyle various times for different film roles and in real life. Her new brunette bangs made an appearance during a virtual event for Marvel’s ‘The Falcon and the Winter Solider’ series.
Elizabeth’s complemented her tousled shag haircut with 70s inspired curtain bangs that are feathered down to her cheekbones.
One classic low-maintenance option hat you don’t want to sleep on is a bun and a French girl fringe. Gigi Hadid recently shared a photo on Instagram captioned ‘fresh snow, fresh cut’ as the mum of one unveiled her new hair. The French-girl fringe is a thick and full fringe that skims your eyebrows. If you’re someone who is always wearing their hair in a high ponytail or bun, then this style is a classic choice for you to try.
While Kendall didn’t seem a fan of her feathered fringe, we think it’s a great example of how drastically your fringe can change your look. Just by adding a feathered fringe, Kendall suddenly looked a lot more like her mum Kris and older half-sister Kim Kardashian-West. Although this style didn’t work for Kendall, it’s a style that suits her face shape and is a classic choice.
Nothing screams supermodel more than a straight bob with a blunt block fringe. If you’re blessed to have the same bone structure as Bella Hadid, then this is the hairstyle that you need to try.
The one thing you want to consider with a block fringe is how quickly your hair grows. You might find yourself heading back to the salon more often or cutting your fringe at home.
When it comes to bohemian romanticism, the 70s shaggy fringe is king. If you want to inject a little boho chic to your look, take a leaf out of JLo’s book and experiment with some extra long curls and a messy fringe.
Depending on your face shape, you can feather your fringe down to your cheekbones or leave them shorter to work with your bone structure.
Are you ready to channel your inner superhero? Kim Kardashian switched up her look for a Valentine’s Day shoot for KKW Beauty. Her full fringe and straight bangs gave the reality TV star a 60s inspired look and turned her into an epic superhero (or villain!). The super straight hair creates a seamless look between Kim’s mid-lengths and fringe. If you’re someone who is prepared to deal with the upkeep of a full fringe, this still might be right up your street.
Is there anything more Parisian than Priyanka Chopra’s hair style? We love that she opted for the easy-to-maintain French girl fringe that frames her face without being too overwhelming. The tousled curls and wavy hair add a feminine feel to the look that deliberately appears natural instead of picture perfect. If you’re trying this look at home, it’s worth brushing through your curls to help loosen them or to use a straightener instead of a curling wand for more wavy curls.
Selena Gomez can do no wrong when it comes to hairstyles. The singer and actress is currently rocking a curly look inspired by the 1970s flower power look. If you have curly hair, you’ll love this retro-inspired look. The secret to recreating Selena’s style is to keep shorter locks of hair around your face to help enhance and define the shape of your natural curls. The same advice applies if you’re curling your hair with a wand or other hot tools.
One of the biggest hair trends right now is texture and embracing your natural hair, with Selena’s look being a classic example of that. You can also see flashes of blonde through her curls, showing the natural glow that comes from a balayage treatment. If you’re thinking of going with a full curly look, it’s worth considering adding a balayage or highlight treatment to your hair to give your curls a lift.
We couldn’t help but share another hair style from Priyanka Chopra – especially as it seems to be the hairstyle of 2021. Her long and tapered fringe is an example of how you can add volume and length into your curtain bangs. If you’re not a fan of styling your bangs every day, the long and tapered style requires no maintenance.
The benefit of this style is that you can let it grow or put it to the sides of your face once it gets too long. As they’re your natural bags, you don’t need to worry about straightening them. If you want to keep your curtain bangs looking fresh with this style, it’s a good idea to have them re-cut every two to three weeks depending on your hair growth.
Bella Hadid is infamous for bringing old styles back into fashion. Baby and micro bangs are making a serious comeback this year, which isn’t surprising when you see Bella Hadid rocking the style. If you’re thinking of going with a shorter fringe, it’s good to know that this style generally is better suited to those with a slimmer and oval face shape.
While other fringes can hide your features, a micro fringe is so shot that it hides nothing at all. It’s also worth remembering that a micro fringe needs a little extra TLC as it will generally be greasier than a normal fringe.
What we love about bangs being back in stye is that we don’t have to wait until a breakup or nervous breakdown to change up our look. If you want to change your style without doing anything drastic to the length or colour, a fringe is always your best option. You can give your look an upgrade without feeling the need to chop off half your hair.
When you’re choosing your fringe style, it’s a good idea to stop and think of which style fits your lifestyle. Do you have the time to style your fringe every day? Are you prepared to wash your hair more for a micro-fringe? Just like anything, these bangs come with pros and cons. The most important thing to remember is that you need a fringe that works with your face shape.

Do you subscribe to the philosophy of “change the hair, change the woman”? If you do, then you might be considering a fresh haircut after the year that was 2020.

With this in mind, we’re rounding up the 5 biggest haircut trends that you’ll want to consider trying in 2021.
The redhead trend has been slowly gaining popularity in recent years. It started with Sophie Turner’s character, Sansa Stark, on Game of Thrones.

After the popularity of the Queen’s Gambit, Netflix’s latest hit tv series, the trend has reached new heights.
