Will a French-Girl Fringe Suit Me?

Quite often clients ask ‘will I suit a fringe’? and the simple answer is yes. There is a fringe to suit every hair type and texture, no matter if you have a long straight hairstyle, or a short crop. The French girl Fringe style is especially flattering as it is soft and frames the face, plus it’s a fringe that suits all face shapes.

Check out our quick guide on what fringe suits your face shape below…


  • Long and narrow faces: This look should work well on you, as fringes that hit just below the brows will make your face look fuller.


  • Round or square faces: Fringes can make circular faces appear even wider, so finding the right shape is key. Ask for a graphic, curved style that will flatter bone structure. The thicker the better, as wispy versions will have less impact.


  • Heart-shaped faces: You’re the lucky ones and can get away with pretty much everything. But if you want something definitive, the ideal style is layered and feathered -perfect for the French-Girl look.

This was my first salon visit in two years. Lucy gave me the best salon experience I've ever had! She was so lovely and patient with me, always made sure I was happy with everything. It turned out better than I could've imagined. Wish I found this salon sooner! Highly recommended. Thanks again. 🙂

First visit to the salon. I was really impressed. All the staff were really friendly and Stan really listened to what I wanted. My previous hairdresser had made a mess of my hair so Stan had a lot of work to do to correct it. I've already booked my next appointment. Thanks Stan.
