The thick mid-length cut with a fringe, relaxed yet feminine, is the definition of rock'n'roll style with a touch of softness. But what is it about this 'clavicut' that makes it such a sought-after look by stylish women? Perhaps the secret lies in its subtle volume and the fringe, adding a graphic, minimalistic effect.
A fringe: turning a thick mid-length cut into a must-have
There is middle-ground between a classic smooth/wavy mid-length cut, and its deliberately dishevelled interpretation. Soft, feminine and a bit folksy, voilà the thick clavicut with a fringe. This bold, shaped style is one of the things that give the fashion forward their special allure.
The fringed mid-length softly frames the face
According to our specialist, hairstyle ambassador Denis Holbecq, this mid-length cut with a fringe is the ideal face-framer: 'First, it's a clavicut, which provides the perfect frame to both round- and square-shaped faces, and second, the fringe emphasises the eyes. It's ideal for thick hair, and blonde shades look especially great with this look, adding an angelic softness to the face.'
The fringed clavicut: it's all in the volume
To achieve this style, the hair must never fall flat against your cheeks. A visit to the salon is de rigueur to maintain the volume needed for a thick mid-length cut with a fringe. A professional stylist will create sophisticated layering according to the texture of your hair, and fix it in place with a volumising product, such as Full Volume Extra by L'Oréal Professionnel.
