“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, Penny suggests that you use your fingers to finish off the style, and voilà, 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.
So there you have it—achieving a salon-quality finish on your favourite forehead companion at home has never been so simple.
