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

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.

I’ve had my hair cut and styling with Charlotte in their new Brindley Place branch. She was lovely and really knew what she was doing. I had my best hair cut in Birmingham with her. Fixed my messy fringe too. 5 stars Charlotte. Thanks

First time visiting Hush Hair at Brindley Place and the service by amazing. On entering the salon, I was greeted by James (owner) who was very warm and friendly. The wash and haircut was so soothing and I now feel fresh. Many thanks for my complimentary hot drink and biscuits. Definitely will be back and maybe grab a pint over the canal side.

I recently moved to Birmingham and needed to find a hijabi-friendly hairdressers in city centre. I found HUSH via a google search and I was impressed with the section on their website specifying how they can cater for the needs of those who require privacy during a haircut. Upon arriving and waiting for my appointment time, I was offered a drink of my choice (I chose water to which they added a nice lemon slice to :)). As I wear a headscarf, my haircut took place in a nice area downstairs which was curtained off for privacy. Whilst washing my hair, my hairdresser Ev had asked another hairdresser to make sure I was covered in case a male employee past by. I really appreciated how understanding and accommodating she was without me asking. Thanks Ev! In terms of the haircut, Ev immediately understood what I wanted after I showed her a photo. She tailored what I had asked for to my hair type and we had a good conversation during the cut. The blow dry gave my new cut a really great bounce and she even backcombed my hair for me. The haircut and whole experience at HUSH was good value for money. I would definitely go there again and I would also recommend it for my fellow hijabis in Birmingham. The staff are also very polite and respond to calls/ emails promptly.It was the best haircut experience I’ve had - Thanks!

So glad Hush is back up and running - I missed having my regular haircuts with Derrick!!!!!! I made sure I was on priority waiting list to make sure i could get an appointment with him before he got booked up for after lockdown. Despite it being so long since I had a haircut with him the style in my hair lasted through the whole of lockdown, I was just desperate for a clean up and a cut of the length because it grew so fast. He always knows what I want even if I don’t know what I want lol, the styling is always impeccable and lasts so long. My hair is super thick and silky and he still manages to make a style last for 2-3 days which other hairdressers find impossible. He keeps my hair looking healthy and silky by recommending good hair products. I’ve been having my haircut for two years with him and highly recommend him, you’ll have a really fun experience!!

Absolutely amazing experience at Hush Jewellery Quarter. My partner and I had Vito, Tom and James- simply Wow Wow Wow! Made us feel so so special and from the moment we arrived with Dan’s welcome felt like we were surrounded by friends. Colour and Cut were amazing- already booked our next one. Without a doubt the best salon we have EVER attended.
