Micro fringes are back, big time. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at Joan Smalls, model Daziya Ponypalyak and blogger Zoe London. Zoe’s are soft and feathered, Joan’s are Bettie Page-esque and Daziya’s are choppy and blunt – three ways to spin one look. In fact, it’s their versatility that makes this somewhat tricky trend so wearable. You can play them a few ways – with glossy curls for a pin-up vibe, with candy-coloured lengths for a twee twist of with oodles of volume for a rockabilly edge.
The super-glamazons at the Schiaparelli show and the grunge girls on Alexander Wang’s catwalk both wore the style with an edgy twist, with models Kiki Willems, Sarah Brannon and Agnes Solokowska all dripping too-cool-for-school charm. Plus, this look can be tweaked to bespoke perfection for you. Your stylist will advise on exactly the right length of fringe to suit your face shape, chopping more or less off depending on the length of your face and the shape of your jaw.
And it doesn’t have to always be a blunt, straight edge. Remember Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Soft, graduated ends are just as lovely, and can be a little more face-framing – as well as easier to clip to the side if you like to switch up your style a lot. Basically, micro-fringes are nowhere near as scary (or scientific) as they might sound, and there’s a myriad of ways to wear them, whether you like your hair directional or feminine. The choice is yours…
