How to wear a grown out fringe
Joining the wobs, lobs and other hair trends we’ve come to know (and totally love) this season is a face-framer that flatters just about everyone: the grown-out fringe, aka the ‘gringe’. No matter what your face shape, this shaggy hairstyle works, and is high at the top of what's trending in the world of beauty for 2017.
Yep, these in-between bangs have got us talking, and envious of those already sporting a fringe - they’re one step closer to grown-out gorgeousness.
Celeb hairstylist George Northwood is the man responsible for giving the look its catchy name. While bombshells like Brigitte Bardot introduced the look in the 60s, we love that celebs like Alexa Chung, Jennifer Lopez and homegrown beauty Samantha Jade have put it back at the top of the chic list.
So, what’s great about gringes? Well, apart from being a fabulous option for those who are sitting on the to-cut-or-not-to-cut fence, bh favourite Anthony Nader says they’re a perfect, low maintenance style that frames the face beautifully. They’re especially ideal for more angular face shapes: rectangular, square and diamond-shaped ladies, this is definitely one for you!
Anthony’s top tips for styling your gringe
If you’re strapped for time, the quickest way to blow-dry your gringe is to clip the longer lengths of your hair to the side. Then, follow these steps:
- Spray a few pumps of sea salt spray and divide the hair into two even sections.
- Use a flat, narrow paddle brush to blast the first section in a downward motion. Direct the brush diagonally, sweeping out the ends to get that sexy flick.
- Do the same with the top layer, being careful not to create too much volume or you'll end up with an 80s style.
- Hit the cool shot button on the hairdryer to set the style and intensify sheen.
