Editor’s tip: Contemplating booking in for a fringe? Define your curls with the TIGI Bed Head Foxy Curls Contour Cream to keep your mane moisturised and smooth.
Ever since Emma Watson and Emma Roberts gave them their public debut, micro (AKA ‘baby’) bangs have risen to the top of the trends table. They’re the ultimate in edgy, unconventional style and make a regular cut that bit more daring. Credit: @true_whit_
With curly hair, you’re lucky that any style you try will automatically exude boho vibes – just take this split, undone fringe for example.
