The wispy fringe is a barely-there style that features a few shorter pieces mostly to create movement. Highly texturised when cut, the wisps can easily be blended into longer face-framing layers or pulled out of an upstyle, giving you the choice of when you want to show it off.

The original universal fringe trend, this style is still very much in fashion for its ability to work well with all hair types and styles. With the shortest point being at the center and elongating as it is moves toward the temples, it usually features a center part and can easily be customised to your hair type and comfort with length. This can also be a great option for anyone looking to grow out their fringe, as the soft shape cuts down on the awkward grow-out phase.

Taking a page out of Farah Fawcett’s book, the modernization of this trend focuses on creating the ultimate face frame. With a shaggy center-parted fringe, it is similar to curtain fringe in the way it is shorter in the middle and much longer as it fans out to the sides. To add to this and give it that quintessential 70s feel, you’ll want to continue the bang down to the cheek area to flawlessly frame the face.
