From the curtain fringe to the maxi fringe, through its side-shaped or colored version, the fringe is definitely a hairstyle trend that comes to infinity, and this year, it is the turn of the mini fringe to be in the spotlight.
Spotted on the Beyoncé fronts, Emma Watson and Penélope Cruz, among others, the mini-fing is indeed the rise as one of the essential cuts of the season, provided, of course, the face for it.
So here are some tips for wearing the micro-ring, and, above all, whether it will suit you.
What face to adopt the mini-fringe?
Let us rejoice because, for once when we talk about fringes, the trend of the moment can be driven by all. In fact, we must above all look after the type of baby bang (the small English word of the mini-finter) that we choose.
- If you have a round face and dream of a mini-ring, opt for a thin, well-slicted version with really light tips. It is by keeping this light effect that you can adopt the mini-fringe without further rounding your face or making it heavier.
- Conversely, if your face is rather long and thin, bet on a thicker, straighter version of the short fringe, it will give your look an ultra-branched retro look.
- For square faces, the ideal is a slightly degraded short fringe worn on the side, almost like a mini curtain fringe, to soften your features. Conversely, avoid the thick, perfectly straight micro-fringe. For a more pronounced look, you can also try the domed mini-fringe, which will contrast with your more angular features.
- And if you have an oval face, it is free to wear the mini-fringe that you like, and even vary the pleasures by styling it more or less flexibly according to your desires.
What cut to adopt the baby bang?
Another advantage of the baby bang is that it adapts to different haircuts, from the right square to the corrugated lengths. Here are some ideas.
- On short hair: sublime on a gradient and supple pixie cut, ultra-sharp on a bowl cut.
- On a short square: perfect with a short and straight square, so British when worn with a short fringe or a pretty square ball.
- On mid-length hair: to avoid the helmet effect, you opt for a well-degraded cut, with movement, and a micro-fringle not too static, slightly tapered, so not.
- On long hair: the mini-frange is adopted without hesitation, provided that it is worn with natural hairstyles or, at the very least, relaxed. No ultra-worked blow-outs, which would become much too first-degree by being associated with a micro-fring.
What kind of hair can you afford the short fringe?
This is a criterion on which, unfortunately, the short fringe is a more upsetting strand: it really corresponds better to smooth hair.
Indeed, unless you are properly blow-drying and a few daily retouching, the mini-fing does not really do well on curly, curly or undulating hair.
It can, at the limit, work on soft hair, which undulate very slightly, but only if you opt for a soft, light mini fringe, especially not for a thick, straight version.
How do you style your mini-ring?
The mini-fringe is not much more difficult to style than a classic fringe, depending mainly on your hair nature and your cut.
However, there is generally a tendency to want to smooth, or at a minimum, discipline, micro-fring and, for this, the best is still the blow-drying best. Depending on the result you want to achieve, you can either dry your short fringe with your fingers (only if you have naturally smooth hair), for a hairstyled-cheek look; or use a brush, more or less thick depending on the desired bulge.
It is also possible to use a straightening iron, which is particularly useful for disciplining a short, thick, straight fringe. On the other hand, it is certainly not the ideal tool for a light result that retains a certain movement.
By the way, make sure that the styling of your baby bang matches the general style of your cut: if you have a gradated cut full of motion, avoid creating a very straight and very rigid fringe, on the contrary.
Finally, do not hesitate to use a little styling product, for example wax, to permanently fix the movement you want to give to your mini-fringle.
What should be retained:
- The mini-fing is THE fringe trend of the year, exiting the curtain fringe.
- It may be suitable for all face morphologies, provided it is adapted: the more round your face is, the more your short fringe will have to be tapered and light, and vice versa.
- The hairstyle of the baby bang is not particularly complicated, it all depends on the result you want to achieve. The hair dryer is, in any case, your best ally.
- Styling wax is probably the best product for caping a baby bang without making it heavier or stiffening.
