While a blunt fringe adds an unrivalled sleekness to any look, there’s no denying, they can be seriously tough to maintain. However, before you pop the entire fringe family into the too hard basket, there is a distant cousin, the curtain fringe, that might be more your cup of tea.
Falling from a slight middle part, a curtain fringe creates a face-framing fanned effect across the forehead.
Delivering an effortless, soft look that will partner any hair texture, length or tone, the curtain fringe might also be of service if you’re wanting to pull off the world’s greatest cowlick cover-up job or if your forehead is your absolute pet hate (we bet nobody else has even noticed it but if you do, then that’s all that matters).
Quickly gaining popularity as being the lowest maintenance and most versatile of all the fringe varieties, the curtain cut can stop anywhere from the cheekbones to the jawline, allowing for the hair to still be tucked behind the ears or pulled back into an updo if required. This also means it’s minimal commitment.
Still need convincing? Here are our top 12 favourite curtain fringe looks to bring to your next haircut…
