Fringe-lovers, listen up. There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a turbulent year for the trusty fringe. From at-home cuts to lash-skimming growth, our fringes have been through it over the past 12 months. However, that’s not to say it’s time to give up on them just yet. As with most areas of our lives right now, our fringe styles might just have to adapt slightly going forward. Whereas blunt, full fringes were all we could talk about at the start of the year, it might be time to adopt an easier, lower-maintenance approach for 2021.
What if we told you there’s a new fringe on the block and it allows you to reap the face-framing benefits of a classic fringe, without the upkeep? Taking inspiration from the iconic Bardot fringe, the curtain fringe is set to be big news next year. Cut with shape so that it curves and frames the face, the curtain fringe is easily parted to create a chic, easy look, even as it grows out. And the best bit is, it can be tweaked for every hairtype and style. Whether you want to embrace long, tousled grow-out or voluminous, bouncy bangs, keep scrolling for 20 curtain fringe styles (plus, the best styling products for the job) that will provide all of the 2021 hair inspo you need.
