Other than buzzing your all of your hair off, growing a fringe is one of the few ways you can use your hair to noticeably change the shape of your face. Great for hiding big foreheads, or shortening longer face shapes, a carefully chosen fringe can give a whole new look not just to your hair, but your mug too.

But as with any game-changing styling trick, there’s scope to get it wrong. Like Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men wrong. Or Pete Wentz.

To ensure you don’t fall foul of the fringe, there are three things to consider: the length (a long fringe is good for rectangular or oval face shapes; a short one is better for round, squarer types); the volume (reaching high and pushing out; or left to sit close to the forehead); and the shape (rounded, or sharper and angular). Depending on your hair’s texture, density and the way it falls naturally, there’s a style of fringe to suit you.
