As a beauty editor, it’s my job to keep on top of the latest hair trends. Whether that’s speaking to experts, analysing data from Google Trends or scrolling through TikTok and Instagram (it’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it), I’m always on the lookout for the next big thing, and I think I might have just found it. I’m sure you know that the ’90s was all about the fringe. From baby bangs to blunt, statement styles, there was no denying how cool this hairstyle was. However, as with most trends, we are seeing a modern day revival of the fringe haircut, but this time it’s chicer than ever. That’s right, forget having your mum cut your bangs over the kitchen sink with a pair of old scissors (just me?), because this time people are embracing a range of elevated fringe hairstyles.

Of course, I thought it was only right that I shared these styles with you, as they are a great source of inspiration for anyone thinking of trying out the chic haircut this year. I’ve included what I believe will be the biggest fringe hair trends of 2024, with pictures, products and tips and tricks on how to get the look. So, whether you’re looking for a fringe to pair with your new bob hairstyle or you simply want to add some face-framing pieces to your everyday ‘do, keep on scrolling for all the info you need…

The first type of fringe we have to talk about is curtain bangs. Not only have I seen this style all over Instagram, but the hashtag #curtainbangs has over four and half billion views on TikTok. Pair that with the fact that celebrities such as Jenna Ortega and Sofia Richie Grainge are giving it a go, and you know you’re onto a winner.

What I love about this haircut is that it perfectly frames your face, adding dimension and volume around the front of your hair without having to go for a full-on fringe. If you’re on the fence about whether to get a fringe or not, then I highly recommend giving curtain bangs a go.

Not only does this fringe frame your face beautifully, but I happen to think that it looks incredibly chic.

Especially when paired with a pretty up-do.

A hot brush is great for getting those voluminous curtain bangs, and this one is currently half price.

Rollers are a great alternative, and you can pop these in while doing your makeup.

Another great option for those of you who don’t want blunt, statement bangs is a wispy fringe. This is another style that I’ve been seeing all over TikTok, and although the hashtag #wispyfringe might not have as many views as curtain bangs, it still has over ten million people watching and wanting to know how to get the look.

The trick to this look is to go for a more feathered haircut, with slightly different lengths throughout. As you can see here, Selena Gomez has gone for longer layers round the outside of her face to make her fringe blend into her haircut perfectly.

There’s no denying that it looks great with a bob hairstyle, and seeing as we’ve all cut our hair short recently, I have no doubt that the wispy fringe will become very popular.

So, so elevated.

This spray from Oribe will help add texture to your wispy fringe.

If you have natural curls or waves, embrace your hair texture with Ouai’s Curl Crème.

Searches for side fringes have increased a lot over the past few months, and I’ve been spotting this style on lots of celebs from Taylor Hill to Dua Lipa. I used to think that this hairstyle was a little dated, but there are so many new ways to wear the trend, such as these feathery, side-swept bangs on Emily Ratajkowski.

If you’ve read my guide to the biggest haircut trends of 2024, then you’ll know that the pixie haircut is set to be huge, and in my opinion, this works perfectly with a chic side fringe. 

See? Told you Taylor Hill was rocking this trend.

Dua Lipa has opted for a longer side fringe, and I love how this looks with a high ponytail.

For a slick side fringe, you’ll want a strong-hold hair gel to hand.

For more voluminous side bangs, a hot brush will be your best friend.
