Steven Scarr Hairdressers in Coxhoe, Durham are here to give you some options so you can update your hairstyle quickly and easily…

Areas We Cover





Will a Fringe suit my face shape?

Fear not there is a fringe to suit all face shapes. No matter if your face shape is round, long, square, or heart shaped. As a general rule you should want a hair cut to “even” out your face. For example, if you have a long head you might want a full wide fringe to help widen the head. If you have a rounder face you might prefer a side fringe to create a longer head shape. 

How do I Maintain my Fringe?

Now that you have committed to having a fringe you now have to maintain it! Often the quickest areas of a hair cut to grow out and lose shape are around the front hairline. Regular trims are essential in ensuring you keep your fringe looking good and avoid uncomfortable hairs in the eyes or a frayed, over grown look.

I Have a Funny Hair Growth Pattern – can I have a fringe?

Yes! No matter what your hair type or texture there is a fringe for you! Fine hair will need more hair taken from the sides to create a fuller looking fringe while blunt fringes look better on thicker hair.

Growth patterns can affect your choice when it comes to choosing a fringe, they may restrict you having a super short style, or if your hair is curly you may be best to have a heavier fringe. Leaving more weight in the fringe will keep it sitting flat, it is all about personal preference! Don’t be afraid to ask your stylist for what fringe will suit you best.

Blunt and Bold Fringes

Make a statement with a sharp, blunt fringe. This hair trend is great for angular faces and slim faces as they tend to make your face look a little wider. Add a gorgeous new hair colour and you’ll soon be turning heads!

The Peek a Boo Fringe

For a popular on-trend fringe you can’t go far wrong with a modern peek a boo or fly away fringe. Wear your locks in a relaxed, slightly wavy style and add a longer fringe with a flick at each end.

Textured Fringes

For a cool, messy fringe that is low maintenance opt for a texturized cut. Ask your Steven Scarr stylist to leave the length hovering over your eyebrows for an edgy look.

Side Swept Fringes

A modern-day classic is the side swept fringe. Keep your fringe long and opt for a side parting so you can sweep your fringe to one side. This style looks gorgeous with both long, sleek straight hair, and shorter wavy hairstyles.
