Ever since Alexa Chung started growing out her fringe last October, us beauty girls have been in serious mourning. After all, the Brit’s uber-cool fringe was, for a time, one of the most requested looks in salons (step aside Rachel Green). Indeed, many a star has sported the “Chung fringe” - think Taylor Swift, Lily Allen and Suki Waterhouse to name but a few. Tousled and a little bit messy, Alexa’s fringe continued to inspire even after it was long gone (sad face).

But today, we're delighted to announce that the Alexa fringe is BACK! Showcasing the new style on her Instagram account, the star wrote, “Fringe zone. Fluff hair on left. Thanks @georgenorthwood.” It comes just days after she tweeted that she'd given up trying to grow it out and was keen to return to fringe territory - and we highly approve.
OK, I give up. Fringe time @georgenorthwood. ??????— alexa chung (@alexa_chung) August 6, 2014
Hairdresser extraordinaire George Northwood has been styling Alexa’s infamous mane for almost 8 years, and we reckon he’s done a pretty good job. What's more, it's a refreshing change to see Alexa with a straighter, more polished style than her usual hipster style. But what say you - do you prefer Chungers with bangs or without?
