This pixie has been slightly updated with razor edges that hug the nape of the neck and ears, creating a modern classic that will continue to be hot for centuries to come. After all, don't all the 23rd Century SciFi movies feature characters with a cut similar to this?! Simple, yet sophisticated, and says you don't need to say anything. It radiates poise and confidence and is a winner no matter what year you reside in. A fringe can be a beautiful thing, it can have a variety of strings to its bow. Blunt and it provides a stark transition onto the forehead, one to avoid if your face is round but other shapes can benefit especially if the hem is softened a touch. Arched and longer at the edges can take the edge off angular or longer faces, arched and longer in the middle is a specialized area, only attempt this if you're absolutely positive. Curtained or parted bangs can have a narrowing effect whereas a choppy edge can break up any excessive width. Asymmetrical can be shaped that way using scissors or simply brushed into a side-swept arrangement, both can be used to distract the eye.
Density and Other Considerations.
As with many things in life, the middle ground is often the best and so it is with a fringe. Possessing medium density, straight, and medium diameter strands make your grooming world infinitely easier. Too dense and things are going to look overwhelming. Any hint of a curl and the humidity might bite you. Too fine and they might not even register on the scale. Bear these things in mind when making your choice, fringe in haste, repent at leisure.
Big Sweeping Bangs Sweep Across One Eye.
Many women feel most clean cut bang designs are too heavy in front, making them feel boxed in and closing off the face. If this sounds like what you have been saying, then this graduated effect might be just about perfect for you. The wispy and fading hem featured here won't add bulk but will add mystery and intrigue. Slightly thicker at the hairline, yet disappearing at the eyebrow, gives you the best of both worlds. Disappearing sides also add to the allure of this precious creation.
Volume is added to the crown of the head with gentle layers and texturizing techniques, creating natural height and lift in this soft and face framing design. Longer, wispy layers to the sides and back soften even further, adding a subtle, feminine touch. Plays on oblong and oval-shaped faces very well, although a strong square shape can also pull this off nicely. It's better avoided for diamond and pear shaped faces, as the emphasis is on the cheekbone.
Violet and Chocolate.
Some people don't need to say a lot with words, they let their hair do the talking. The style here says more than enough to anyone listening. It says, bold and confident, independent and sexy. The defining features here includes sleek, head shaping contours (no bumpy heads here, please!) and just a few on-purpose razor edged fly-away's at the crown, creating just a tinge of unpredictability in an otherwise highly controlled style. If you are an introverted personality with a hidden wild side, this style will fit you perfectly!
Smooth, sleek and short, this sample dares to go beyond the norm. Featuring the shortest peak of the fringe right above the inner eyebrow line, the razor edge creates a fade to nothing finish that leaves the forehead, eyebrows, and eyes the center of attention. Spiked sides cover the ears and seem to disappear right into the smile and the back follows the same disappearing act that we see (or don't see!) here in the front. Calls for a serious amount of fun and there's plenty of room for creativity.
Bob with Bangs,
Tired of limp, long tangles that drag? Remove the length and liven up fine strands with this gorgeous feel that brings out your optimum features. The truth is, fine looks fuller when you take off the length and this also allows natural texture to come alive, giving you a soft and feminine finish that's simply irresistible. The soft layers naturally form a soft drape over your ears that allows you to accentuate them if required and also highlights your neckline and collarbone.
A Blonde Pixie with a Part.
This strong design can be worn either robust as seen here, or softened by blow drying with very little product and creating a dash of volume. Tucking behind the ear softens somewhat already. The versatility of layers leaves you free to have a blast with color, too. This bold arrangement can easily carry off a bright color, like red or blue. Turn the drama down a notch by including a pretty headband or barrette.
Razoring under the layers adds a little height and funk, the colored tips really stand out in a crowd. The long bangs in the front start from the middle of the crown and pull forward towards the eye and delivering the smart and sassy feel. Beware! Only the most adventurous and dynamic of personalities will be able to shine under this bold vibe.
Limited only by your amount of creative styling time in the morning. With a couple dabs of gel, work your textured locks into place for a unique sense of self-expression that just keeps on recreating itself. As your layers grow, your options continue to grow in tandem, leading to uniqueness that'll be the envy of everyone!
Bangs over One Eye.
Layered all around, creating a free, loose finish that's very fashionable and hip. The short layered fringe helps frame your face, seeming younger and sassier. The uneven ends create a tousled look that gives an aura of spontaneity and freedom. Free and flowing, works for just about anyone in any age group or outlook!
Hug your Face.
This example is for women that are extremely confident in themselves and feel no need to hide behind a thick thatch. High, tapered edges along the forehead and a razor trim skimming the neckline, allow much more freedom in the area of makeup and dress, baring your face for all to admire! Finest on square and oblong-shaped faces, you might want to avoid the boldness if your face has rounded aspects.
Created to maximize the cheekbones, eyes, and mouth, sweeping away all facial interference. With high, peaked bangs and a tight, jagged neckline, this design adds a dramatic touch of flash and attention, demanding color both in makeup and apparel. Bold streaks of contrasting color really make it explode into life and are perfect for the showgirl hiding inside you! Feeling now is a good time for a drastic turn in a new direction? This will do the trick!
