An It-Girl Style: The Straight Long Fringe!

Nothing mixes up the simplicity of smooth or slightly wavy long hair better than a beautiful fringe. With just a few scissor flicks, a fringe gives your hair a graphic and structured look, timeless and minimalist. Let's explore this iconic look, worn by only the most daring fashionistas.

Long hair with a fringe: a bold look

Fringes, whether you love them or loathe them, always make an impact. Ultra-feminine and graphic, fringed long hair always brings to mind 'The Devil Wears Prada', and our heroine Andrea. Like the film, it's a hairstyle that we never tire of!

Big hair: a big question for long fringes

To get this look – whether you wear it it-girl, good girl or rock chic – there are a number of prerequisites. This look, popular with many top models, is not good for very fine hair, according to Delphine Courteille, a hairstylist for L'Oréal Professionnel: 'Even though fringes suit all face shapes, they work best if your hair has some weight to it.'

On the edge with a fringe

Delphine Courteille reminds us that your fringe needs to be adapted to the shape of your face and your eyes. For those 'with rounded, prominent eyes, it's best to thin out the fringe. Just a few millimetres can lie between a fringe and the perfect fringe, the one that really complements our facial traits. Thus we entrust ourselves and our fringe to the hands of our regular stylist, who'll know just how to help us on our quest.
