Straight Across

Straight across fringe add a bit of drama to your hairstyle and can change your look dramatically in just a few minutes. If you're not feeling particularly adventurous, try cutting a few wisps of hair to see how it would look, then book an appointment at your salon for the "big chop."

Side-Swept Bangs

Side-swept fringe add an instant touch of glamour to your hairstyle. These fringe work well on those who often wear their hair in a side part, but they can be worn with a middle part. To achieve perfect side-swept fringe, have someone else cut your hair at a slant for you, otherwise you may end up with odd-looking chops.

Razor Cut

Use a razor to cut your hair for a fresh, uneven cut. A razor cut on your fringe can give your hair layers and unexpected dimension. To create side-swept fringe or straight-across fringe with a razor, simply make the initial chop with a pair of scissors and then use the razor to trim the edges.

Bowl Cut Bangs

A bowl cut is so named because it appears that the hair dresser put a bowl on the person's head and then cut the remaining hair out of the way, followed by shaving the hair underneath. This hairstyle creates instant fringe that can be worn well on either a man or a woman. On a woman, this look is dramatic and daring.
