Thought about fringe, aka “bangs” but are you nervous you can’t pull them off? Let’s look at your reasoning behind thinking about a fringe… Do you want to conceal wrinkles on your forehead? Draw more attention to your eyes? Or do you just want a change from what you have now?
For first timers, it’s great to go with a long side-bang such as the one above. It’s long enough that it’s easy to grow out if you need to. But it’s also great because it’ll get you used to having hair in front of your face.

A few key things to remember about a fringe that you must commit to before making the leap:
1. Your bangs will not style themselves. If you’re a low maintenance type of person with your hair, that’s okay but the least you must do with your hair is blow dry your bangs. Ask your Stylist to help you with techniques to style them properly.
2. Cut them on the long side first. If you go too short, there’s no turning back. Your Stylist can cut them multiple times, until they are the length that you like.
3. Even if you hate your bangs, there are many ways to style your hair while growing them out so you don’t have to wear them down.
4. If you’ve dealt with “oily” bangs in the past, pick up Redken’s Powder Refresh to absorb oil from your fringe area and in your part if your hair gets oily by the end of the day. This product will keep it fresh looking.
