Ready to make the cut? Find your perfect fringe (and keep it looking fabulous) with these pro tips.

Blunt

Talk about making a statement without saying a word! Whether snipped in a sharp line from temple to temple or tapered on the sides, heavy, eyebrow-grazing bangs equal instant drama, says New York City hairstylist Creighton Bowman, who created the face framing looks on these pages. Best suited for women with thick strands, this style also requires a lot of self-confidence. “Blunt-cut bangs are attention-grabbing,” says Bowman. So, if you don’t like being In the spotlight, opt for a softer version.

Side wept

Meet the ideal starter fringe: A long, side- parted style is sexy and universally flattering. Cut on a slight angle, the bangs can brush the brow line, as seen here, or extend even longer, so they can be pushed to one side. And forget frequent trims their versatility makes them one of the lowest-maintenance cuts around. “In fact,” says Bowman, “as they grow and fall over one eye, they look even prettier.”

Piecey

Not ready to take the plunge of full on fringe? If you’re really shear shy, try a wispy style. Snipping a few eye-level pieces will soften your features without adding too much edge. The look is especially great if you frequently wear updos but feel naked with a bare forehead.

Choppy

Removing bulk from thick fringe with special texturizing shears imparts extra movement and a cool, rough quality. A better option than blunt for women with very fine hair, choppy is also a good stepping stone if you’re not quite ready to go for the full Zooey Deschanel look. Says Bowman: “Choppy bangs are what you should ask for if you’re seeking a bold style that still feels relaxed and easy.”
