Strong fringe has been trending for quite some time. You may already have had guests coming in requesting a very short fringe as seen on the runways or in fashion mags.
One of the challenges we face is that our guest may not have the ideal face shape to wear the short fringe they request and the other challenge we face is our guest may not have the ideal density or texture of hair to support the look.
We are all aware that an oval face shape is ideal for most any cut. But with these short fringes you need to take profile into consideration and be honest in your consultation. If they do not have the profile or the density and texture and if they are hell bent on a short fringe, you will need to explain why you will need to adjust the length to meet the needs of the shape of their face. You both win, as you know the end result will be visually pleasing. Yes, this is Value! YOU are in control as you are there to act upon their request for a fringe that is trendy and results in a statement look!
The clip you are about to view will take you through the techniques to create a vandalized, highly textured short fringe on a model who happens to have very dense hair along with a very low front hairline. Our model also has very dark hair. And darker hair will not lend itself much light reflection unless you are brave enough to really get in there and take some pieces away. Styling product will also play an important role in the finish to result in visible movement and texture.

Since we are going to be cutting the fringe on dry hair you are probably wondering why we have not listing the Sam Villa Signature Series 7 Dry Cutting Shear. We need some slip while on this models fringe and because the 7 Shear holds on to the hair perfectly in the blades the 5.75 Shear is a better choice.
NOTE: Do not be intimidated to take the fringe short if the facial shape and profile allow or you miss the opportunity to make The Statement!
HOT TIP: Depending on facial shape you can create a curved or tilted (a great word to use in place of asymmetrical) line for the perimeter.
NOTE: As stated earlier, dark hair does not show a lot of texture you need to be willing to be a little aggressive and not be afraid to get in there and remove pieces to achieve the statement look!
Finish the fringe with Redkens Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist and Mess Around 10 Disrupting Cream-Paste
Keep in mind:
Get your perimeter in first and then go into the upper surface and pinch and talk to remove some really strong pieces let go and just cut the darn thing!
