“Your fringe needs to be the first thing you style, always,” says Barney Martin senior stylist Penny. Using a barrel brush on wet hair, separate your fringe into a triangle section in front of your forehead. “Use the outer brow as a guide for the wide part of the triangle,” Penny instructs.
Next up: “Blow dry the roots from left towards right and repeat on the other side,” says Penny. Once completely dry, use your fingers to finish off the style, and voila! A fringe with instant lift that should fall just as it should.
“The length of your fringe will determine what size brush you should use,” Penny adds. As a rule: “the shorter the fringe, the smaller the brush.”
“You want the ends to slightly bend around the brush,” she says.
