I’ve long been a fan of the fringe. It covers wrinkles – saving you a fortune on wrinkle creams. It’s cute and feminine, a prerequisite of mine when going for a new cut. And it’s the easiest way to work a new look without going for the chop altogether.
The downside? If, like me, you’ve not got poker straight hair, you gotta blow-dry EVERY morning. This becomes a tad tiresome after awhile. But after catching up with hair maestro Sam Mcknight on a photo shoot last week he told me exclusively that he cut supermodel of the moment, Abby Lee’s hair for the new Chanel cruise show. ‘It was a collaboration between me and Karl Lagerfeld – It’s new modern take on Julie Christie’s 60’s mid-length crop,’ he told me giving me a sneak peek of the cut in question on his iphone.’ Debuted at the Chanel Cruise show in St.Tropez, expect a raft of copy cuts to come. Just check out Sienna’s amazing new fringe!
The new way to work a fringe? It should be straight and sharp and worn with mid-length hair – very sixties, very Julie Christie, very now. Even cooler? Channel Sienna here and texture clash and team sleek bangs with soft waves. Love, love, love.
