New season fringe update!

03 September 2008


 If you've been hankering after the latest fringe fix, then look no further than the FLOP - A/W's answer to your hair upgrade. As seen at Gucci, it's a more glamorous version of hot model Alice Dellal's signature hairstyle.  Here's the low-down: it's a long fringe swept to the side, with a salt water hair texture à la Gucci. It's a long way off from last season's sleek '60s eye-skimming fringe, but it's versatile enough to be worn with this season's brights, tartan and lace trends. With Grazia's golden style rules, you'll have the FLOP down in a matter of minutes.  Here's Zoe Irwin, hair stylist and creative director at Hari's, must-have FLOP kit:

Essential FLOP texture kit:
1. Frédéric Fekkai Coiff Tassled Wave Spray £16 ( - spritz in-between layers of hair as a primer
2. Kératase Expanser Volume £16.50 ( - mix this with the tousler to get the Gucci texture
3. Babyliss Pro Inch wide Ceramic tongs £24.50 ( - tong the hair in different directions so that you have waves in alternate directions, tong one section forward and the next section back
