Everyone’s Getting a Side-Swept Fringe. Here’s Why You Should, Too

Miriam Herst | 06 October 2018

Take your shorter layers to new levels.

A simple switch to a center part, a tuck of your shorter layers behind your ears and a ponytail to round out the style: it’s that easy to get in on the trend that’s been sweeping the streets of Paris. Side-swept fringe gives your elementary ponytail a quick upgrade by framing your face with short, choppy layers. Ideal for those mornings when you realize you’ve pushed your hair washing schedule off for one day too many, a side-swept fringe upgrades a basic style in just minutes:

After refreshing your hair with Bed Head by TIGI Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo, you can redefine your part to suit this style. The center part creates an edgy, face-framing silhouette that will give your style that French girl chic vibe we’re all after.

Use a rat tail comb to define your part and gather your hair back into a half-up style or a full ponytail. Much like a great pair of shoes or a bright shade of lipstick, a defining style like this one can make or break an outfit and be just the finishing touch you need.
