Thinking of cutting a fringe? Here’s what you should know

If you are getting a blunt fringe or one that relies on being straight to look good, are you willing to commit to regular upkeep? Your fringe will need a trim every two to three weeks, which, if you can’t do it yourself, could end up costing quite a bit. 2. Styling
If you want your fringe to always be straight, but your hair has a natural curl or wave to it, keeping it looking the way you want it to could be a problem. Straightening it in the mornings is one thing, but sweat or rain could make it change shape during the course of the day. 3. Washing
The forehead is one the oiliest parts of the face, and that is exactly where a fringe sits. This means that you will need to wash it more often than you do the rest of your hair, so you will need to factor this into your lifestyle.

One of the downsides of having a fringe is that it can cause your skin to break out. While your fringe can at least help to hide any rogue zits, you might have to change your skincare routine to include products containing salicylic acid to keep spots at bay. 5. Different strokes
Fringes come in all sorts of lengths and styles, and before you do any chopping you should find out which type suits you best. Square faces look good with an eye-grazing fringe, heart-shaped faces with a side-swept style, round faces with wispy bangs. And oval faces? Just about anything! 6. Growing pains
There will probably come a time when you want to grow your fringe out, and this can be a frustrating transition. It will require patience, experimenting and lots of hairpins to keep your hair presentable for a few months. But who knows – you could be forever converted!
