The Bridget Bardot inspired fringe is trending. Worn by it-girls like Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller, their eye-grazing fringes sit somewhere between a classic fringe and a sweeping side fringe.
The secret to the curtain fringe is that they have to flutter way below the eyebrows, giving them a flirtatious feel. If the curtain is cut too short, it’s going to look too 30’s inspired and it will fail in giving that sexy curtain look.
To achieve this look ask your stylist to take the fringe section quite deep and wide, which gives impact and emphasises the sexiness of this look. Also ask that they make the middle of the fringe shorter, angling longer towards the outside of the face. This gives that beautiful sweeping motion.
But be warned, this is a look the requires maintenance, as keeping your curtain fringe the right length will mean visiting your stylist every few weeks.
For those with a strong cowlick in the front, you can still maintain this look by using a small, round brush and blow-drying the cowlick in the complete opposite direction, so that it sits more flat on the face. Another way of maintaining the look is to make the hair appear soft and ethereal, not thick – so go easy on the hair product. Only use light-hold product or powder to give that light airiness to it.
