Fringes: The Hairstyle That Makes Everyone Look Younger

Zooey Deschanel

Fringes are the ultimate way to update your hairstyle. There's no hair-dye involved, no dramatic change in length, plus, they can hugely alter the way that you look for the better.

Feeling tempted?

They are one of the most youthful hairstyles (no need for Botox with a well-placed fringe) and suit almost anyone, whether you opt for a choppy style or a blunt statement version.

New Girl's Zooey Deschanel is the queen of the full fringe and has been working one into her kooky style for years. By curling the ends of her dark brown locks, the actress nails a sassy 60s take on glamorous evening style.

Top model Suki Waterhouse and chart-topping country singer Taylor Swift are among other A-listers who love to set off their bangs with waves. 

As demonstrated by Alexa Chung, Reese Witherspoon and Heidi Klum, fringes can be a great way to accentuate different parts of your face.

While a full fringe might hide a longer forehead, face-framing bangs can create the illusion of more defined cheek bones.

When it comes to styling your fringe for a special occasion, we urge you to look to Hollywood actresses Jennifer Garner and Emma Stone for inspiration.

Both are often spotted on the red carpet with their glossy bangs swept elegantly to one side. All you need to recreate this 'do at home is a couple of kirby grips. It really is that simple. 

With a style to work for every face shape, every hair colour and every personal preference, it's not hard to see who VIPs just can't resist going for the chop.

So, whether you're looking at trialling a wispy or full fringe for the first time or just want a new-season update on your current style, these are the celebrity looks we're loving right now...
