A bit like when your mum cut your fringe in primary school, but much cooler. Baby bangs, micro fringe, mini fringe; Audrey Hepburn put the cropped cut on the map, Uma Thurman’s was killer in Pulp Fiction, and my Instagram feed reminds me on the daily why heading to the salon would be a good idea.
The conventional ‘mini fringe’ is cut straight for a fresh, modern vibe. It’s kind of edgy, it’s laidback, and it looks great if your face is a little longer (a short-cut fringe will accentuate roundness).
The thinned-out mini fringe is a little quirkier – your stylist will most likely use a razor to achieve the look, for a more ‘undone’ finish. Try this one if your hair is longer, the messier, the better – sign me up.
Last up, the ‘curved’ fringe: the face-framer, the vintage one. Once cut, add volume with a barrel brush, or use tongs to curl under. Try adding a bandana for a retro twist, or a slide at the side for an evening look. If you’ve ever watched Amelie, you’re probably already convinced, but if not – here you go, a gallery a mighty-fine mini fringes.Book your cut
