Everything You Need to Know About the Sexy, Shaggy Fringe
They say three is a trend — but the latest fringe craze has exceeded the standard number. In this case, real life (or rather celebrity life) is mirroring the catwalks, so you can bet the fad is going to take off. Backstage at New York Fashion Week Spring 2016, we saw a bunch of fierce fringes. At Christian Siriano, Rebecca Minkoff, and Vera Wang, models received clip-in faux fringes. Then, at Alexander Wang, models actually got haircuts before they walked the runway. But what really set us at the edge of our seats was when the Duchess of Cambridge debuted the same style at the exact same time!
These are not the mod, blunt fringes of the past — but rather they are a continuation of the "swag" haircut. The new fringes skim the eyelashes and have a grown-out feel. Like window curtains, they frame your face and accentuate your cheekbones. And they seamlessly blend into long layers — so if you do want to try a clip-in fringe, no one will be able to tell.
A-listers such as Ciara, Dakota Johnson, and Olivia Wilde have recently debuted these shaggy fringes, while pioneers like Taylor Swift and Alexa Chung were ahead of the curve. But we bet your friends haven't caught on yet, so keep reading to see more examples of this look and take one of the photos to your stylist for your Autumn haircut appointment.
