Fringes are huge right now and, done right, can knock years off your age and save you a fortune in Botox. Done wrong... well, just take a look at the evidence. Check out these fringe triumphs and disasters and compare your face shape with these celebs to find out if a fringe would suit you.
Perfect for: Round faces
Nicole Richie wasn’t blessed with the most slender of faces but by adding a fringe her ’do has a slimming effect. Also, cutting up the fringe draws attention from her face to her eyes.
Perfect for: Looking younger
By cutting her hair into this Cleopatra-style bob and full fringe, Jessica Alba has also cut an instant five years off her age! We love the youthful hairstyle on her.
Perfect for: The red carpet
This fringe works great with an up-do. By parting her fringe and giving just a glimpse of her forehead, Penelope Cruz looks effortlessly elegant!
Perfect for: Easy care
In true rock chick fashion Kate Moss refuses to stick to any conventional rules, even with her hair. Here, she messes up her fringe to create a fab alternative look.
Perfect for: Blondes
This hair style is perfect for blonde hair and makes bombshell Cameron Diaz look more fresh and youthful. Jealous!
Perfect for: A statement
Liv Tyler looks mesmerising with this full fringe that really draws attention to her eyes. Perfect with blue eyes and long brown hair, this look can work with other styles, but platinum blondes should steer clear to avoid Lady Gaga lookalike references.
Celebs show us what not to do
Courtney clearly ignored the number one cardinal rule of fringes – don’t ever cut them yourself!
We don’t even know what Renée was thinking with this hair do. The Nineties are over and only Peter Andre can pull off a floppy, boyish fringe.
No, no, no, Fergie. Not even those disastrous highlights will take the attention away from your badly cut fringe.
