Oh La La: Why You Need To Try A French-Girl Fringe

Why It’s Time You Considered Getting a French-girl Fringe at HUSH Hair Salon in Birmingham

Are you feeling like your hair is stuck in a bit of a rut? Opting for a ‘French-girl Fringe’ could be the perfect way to give your hair that little je ne sais quoi. Inspired by the chic locks of Parisian fashionistas, this bang-on-trend look is all about natural beauty…and kinks are encouraged! 

Suitable for all ages, universally flattering and easy to style – what’s not to love? Our team of talented stylists at HUSH Hair Salon in Birmingham are ready and waiting to create your brand new French-inspired look for Autumn/Winter 2018. Call us on 0121 634 3232 to book your appointment. 

Will a French-Girl Fringe Suit Me?

Fringes are usually a softening feature so they suit most people. The only situation where they don’t is where the area of the forehead to the hair line is not very high and a fringe could have the effect of closing in the face too much. But even then, in some cases, this can be resolved by making the fringe wider. Check out our quick guide on what fringe suits your face shape below…

Long and narrow faces: This look should work well on you, as fringes that hit just below the brows will make your face look fuller.
Round or square faces: Fringes can make circular faces appear even wider, so finding the right shape is key. Ask for a graphic, curved style that will flatter bone structure. The thicker the better, as wispy versions will have less impact.
Heart-shaped faces: Jackpot! You’re the lucky ones and can get away with pretty much everything. But if you want something definitive, the ideal style is layered and feathered – perfect for the French-Girl look.

Your French-Girl Fringe Consultation at Our Top Birmingham Salon

When describing this cut, bring a picture or screenshot along to your appointment at our Birmingham hair salon, so you and your HUSH stylist can be on the same page – after all, one person’s ‘long’ is another person’s ‘shaggy’ is another person’s ‘sexy.’ 

Bear in mind, though, that during your complimentary consultation at HUSH, your stylist will access your face shape and hair type to ensure that a ‘French girl fringe’ is for you.

How To Style Your New French-Girl Fringe

Once you have your very own French-girl fringe, it’s time to style it. While French women tend to be pretty low maintenance when it comes to their hair, sometimes fringes need a little extra work.

If you want to wear your fringe wavy, there’s not much you have to do. First, shampoo and condition with a quality Shampoo and Conditioner (your HUSH stylist will recommend the best products for your individual hair type). Then, gently towel-dry your hair and spritz it with a finishing spray. Let your hair air dry to create those beachy waves that look effortlessly chic.
Want to wear your French-girl Fringe smooth and sleek? Start in the shower by using a Keratin infused Shampoo and Conditioner. After you’re done showering, apply a smoothing hair cream that also offers heat protection. Blow-dry your hair -and your fringe, with a round brush to create movement. To up the volume on your fringe use a roller. Finish with a quick spritz of hairspray and you’re good to go.

Top Tips For Looking After Your French-Girl Fringe

Get Regular Trims at HUSH: To create that effortless French vibe, your HUSH stylist will leave the ends of your new fringe feathery as opposed to blunt. With any kind of Fringe, you’re looking at regular trims at our Birmingham salon in order to keep their shape, so keep that in mind.
Stock Up On Dry Shampoo: There’s no doubt that you’ll be touching and playing with your fringe a lot, especially at the beginning, which will just produce some extra oiliness.

Salon Review
I had a cut and colour with the lovely Chris. I had a consultation first which was great and he made me feel like I was in safe hands. Chris talked me through all my options as I hadn’t had a cut in a year and I’d be having troubles with getting my hair colour right (I’d been using box dyes - I know! I know!). Anyway, needless to say he did an amazing job! I love the colour and the cut, making my 70s bouffant dreams come true! If you have any reservations about going here - don’t! They’re amazing and will talk you through everything, making your visions come to life. Thanks again Chris I’ll definitely be back.

Travel an hour from Burton to get my hair done here. Lottie was so welcoming and made me feel comfortable instantly. My hair is perfect and exactly what I wanted. Would recommend to anyone to come and get their haircut here.

I had the nanokeratin smoothing hair treatment carried out by Lottie who was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Lottie explained the process to me in detail after which I decided to get the treatment done. I had previously done my own research too. I washed my hair after the recommended timeframe and I couldn’t believe the difference. My hair was straight out the wash and it was straight after I finished drying it. I didn’t even have to straighten my hair (it’s of fine texture). I would definitely recommend this smoothing treatment to anyone who is looking to get rid of frizz and fly away hairs. My hair is certainly less frizzy, easy to comb through and feels stronger. Book yourself in for a consultation. The aftercare is pretty smooth too just as the hair.. all you do is ensure you use sulphate free hair products and you are on the way to smooth, sleek and strong hair over the coming months!
