The best fringe for every face shape

Whether you wear your hair extensions long or short, blonde or brunette, what better way to inject some style into your look than with a brand new fringe? So, for all of our Great Lengths Lovelies anticipating trimming their bangs, here’s our guide to the best fringes to suit your face shape.

Fringes for a round or oval-shaped face

Choosing the right fringe to compliment your face can be tricky, but if you’re blessed with a round or oval-shaped face, you’re in luck. This shape can wear just about any style of fringe, and you’ll find you can afford to try an edgier block fringe – a lá Katy Perry – or a tousled yet blunt style. Due to the softness of your face, it’s best to keep your fringe thick for maximum impact, and if you’re conscious that your cheeks are the widest part of your face, opting for a side swept look will be super flattering.

A thicker fringe works best with an all over colour, so sticking with Great Lengths pre-bonded hair extensions in classic base shades will work best.

Fringes for a heart-shaped face

Heart-shaped faces tend to be wider at the top, so you’ll be best suited to longer, side-swept or centre-parted fringes that draw attention to your eyes. It’s best to avoid cutting your bangs too short, keeping the arch of your eyebrow as a measure for the shortest part. As new fringes can be unruly, adding a spritz of Great Lengths Soft Finishing Spray will make your ‘do will last much longer!

Fringes for a longer face

For ladies with longer faces, it’s best to avoid the grown-out ‘winged’ fringe that you’ll often see celebs sporting, as this will only elongate your face. Your elegant features will be better suited to a shorter hairstyle and tousled, blunt bangs to match. If you’re feeling daring, opt for a stylish block fringe, which will work well with long or short hair extensions and keep your face in perfect proportion.

Fringes for a square face


Softer fringes are best for you, as they will balance the angular features of your face. Keeping your hair long by wearing Great Lengths hair extensions, and sweeping your fringe to the side will enhance your face and make for a feminine finish. A great tip is to ask your stylist to taper the hair, so that the sides are slightly longer than the middle.
