Tress therapy: The fringe goes mainstream
Spot a model at LIFW and chances are she's sporting a fringe or, as Americans call it, bangs on the forehead. It's the look Preity Zinta sported in Armaan. "The fringe takes away 10 years from a woman's face," says Mumbai-based hairstylist Clint Fernandes.
Wella hair expert Damon Kidd says the style is hot worldwide: "The fringe that lies heavily on the forehead with an asymmetrical cut is in vogue. For additional flair, layer it across one eye."
Choreographer Lubna Adams says models should avoid the fringe. "The fringe makes it difficult to style their hair," she explains. "I'd recommend it to someone with a broad forehead and high cheekbones. For maintenance, just trim it regularly."
"This year everyone is sporting it," says model Sheetal Malhar, who got her cut from hair-stylist Monisha at Mumbai's Re salon. Bhawana Sharma, of course, did it herself. "I was one of the first models to get it," she says. Model Jesse Randhawa prefers 'short-cropped messy hair with a fringe'.
