Long hair, don't care! But the real issue is – should you add a fringe to your ultra-long mane?
Lovely long and layered locks are one of the hottest looks of the season – and we can't get enough! But the beauty of this hairstyle is that it can be worn both with and without a fringe. So, which way do you prefer?
Long hair with a fringe
The hairstyle: A fringe is an effective way of adding structure to longer hair and balancing out the face. For a versatile fringe, ask your hair stylist for a feathery, almost piecey finish. Alternatively, if you prefer a bold statement fringe then ask for a blunt cut.
The style: Embrace this loose and natural style by allowing your long locks to naturally fall over your shoulders. This look is also beautifully enhanced by a discrete hair lightening technique like balayage as it brings depth throughout the layers.
What the editors say: Adding a fringe instantly draws attention to the eyes – so you'll definitely want to make considered eye make-up choices to tie the look together. Try a vintage shade eye shadow or a winged cat eye liner.
Long hair without a fringe
The hairstyle: Simple yet polished – long layered locks are a classic hairstyle. The key to this look comes down to your hair stylist's layering skills as they'll need to add the layers at just the right sections so that the hair flows seamlessly from root to tip.
The style: This season's most coveted look sees long layered locks paired with a sophisticated cool blonde or platinum shade. If you prefer a slightly darker hue, try a cool beige or even a bronde.
What the editors say: For long layered locks to look their best, they must be in top notch condition. To keep dryness and frazzled-ends at bay, try using a weekly conditioning mask like the L'Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Color A Ox Jelly Mask and focus your application on the tips.
