Ultimate Hair Accessory: The Fringe


1358367257_jessica-biel-560There is always something playful about having a fringe. They come in all sophistication and styles. And  after years of playing up our looks, endless great styles and our fair share of hair faux pas, we will always have that certain hate and love affair with bangs.

This Winter has been no exemption. Personally, I have been tempted countless of times and yet it has prevented me from reaching out my favourite pair of shears and doing it myself – making sure to leave it in someone’s capable hands. This has certainly made me wonder how we can come in peace with this big hair trend. Yes, we all agree that it can be a lot of work but with this easy, fringe-approved trick, it can easily turn bangs from a hair drab to the ultimate hair accessory.

Jessica Biel definitely knows how to work it! Get this look by spraying bangs with a thermal protection spray (NEXXUS Pro-Mend Heat Protection Styling Spray, $13.99, London Drugs) to protect hair from heat and prevent breakage and damage. Then, with a fine comb and CHI Elite Shimmer Black 1 Inch Flat Iron ($119, Sally Beauty Supply), straighten bangs away from the forehead allowing it to cool. Have stylish fringe all day by spraying Living Proof Prime Style Extender Spray ($25, Sephora) to prevent hair from getting greasy while keeping the strands smooth. No need for touch ups!

 PRO-TIP:  To maintain your fringe, go to your stylist for a complimentary trim every 2-3 weeks.
