Fringes are fast becoming the style of choice for many women the world over. From Bardot to Birkin, we can’t seem to get enough of them. And, if you’re wondering what fringe style is going to bot in 2019, Pinterest has revealed it to be the micro fringe (yep, searches for cropped bangs have gone up 51%!).
With familiar faces such as Bella Hadid and Laura Herrier flaunting the look, we think it’s about time you found out how you too can wear the trend in a way that suits you best..
9 ways you can pull off a micro fringe
1. Soo Joo Park’s vintage style
We are obsessed with how DJ and model Soo Joo Park styled her bleach blonde hair with a rounded micro fringe. We don’t know about you but this is giving us retro Bettie Page vibes with a modern update.
2. Bella Hadid’s Bettie Page retro fringe
A huge fan of the micro fringe trend is none other than style icon Bella Hadid. A great way to add a fresh update to your look, make like Bella and go for a full micro fringe and style with a high ponytail – this is the style for any retro lovers out there. Credit: @bellahadid
Editor’s tip: Thinking of following in the footsteps of Bella Hadid and teaming your new bangs with a ponytail? If so, be sure to seal in your style with a hairspray, like the VO5 Tame & Shine Spray, to keep your bangs looking on-point.
