The Winter months normally inspire many to go for the chop or to opt for darker hair tones – but what about making a really different change?
With the fringe making a comeback, Sam Burnett, who is the owner and creative director of HARE&BONE salon in London, has unveiled which styles are best suited to different face shapes.
The expert has you covered whether you have a diamond face shape and should opt for a micro fringe like Emma Watson, or a heart face-shape and would look best with a crescent fringe like Selena Gomez.

Facial features: Prominent cheekbone with face narrowing towards the jawline and chin
Fringe to suit: ‘Be brave! Try a micro fringe for a bold statement or a short and heavy curtain fringe.’
‘The goal is to widen your forehead to match the width of your eyes and cheekbones’.

Facial features: Longer and wider forehead with a more prominent jaw compared to Diamond.
Fringe to suit: ‘Crescent shaped fringes really work for this shape face, keeping it shorter in the middle and longer towards the edges with a soft feathered feeling. Selena Gomez is a great example of how to pull off this 70’s inspired fringe’.

Facial features: Widest at the cheekbone and narrower through the forehead and jaw.

With an angular face shape with chin and forehead lengths almost in equal measure, Keira Knightley falls into the ‘square’ face shape category. Pictured on October 17 2019
Facial features: Angular face shape with chin and forehead lengths almost in equal measure.
Fringe to suit: ‘Try curved full fringes that are slightly softer and textured in the outline to soften corners of the face. Keeping it full and thick is a great tip!
‘The goal is to counter act the squareness of your face adding softness and texture. If your wanting to make the fringe straighter instead of curved keep the edges textures and below the brow.’

Kirsten Dunst has soft featureds and a generally shorter face length. Pictured, at the 2019 InStyle Awards at The Getty Center on October 21, 2019 in Los Angeles
Facial features: Soft balanced features and a generally shorter face length.
Fringe to suit: ‘Avoid full fringes and try longer sweeping shapes to elongate the face. Framing underneath the cheekbones is a great way to contour.’
‘An off centre fringe will give the illusion of longer lines down the face to make your face look more oval’.

Facial features: Defined jawline, narrower face and lower forehead.
