We've heard dozens of fringe horror stories, but you can take the look for a test run with this easy strategy using clip-in bangs. Yes, you can make faux fringe look authentic, and Tresemmé hairstylist Jeanie Syfu showed us how backstage at Marissa Webb.
First, create a deep center part. Then make a horizontal part about half an inch back from the hairline. Tease the hair at the scalp to create a grip for the clips. Next, pin back the two sections of hair on each side so you have a nice frame. Clip in the bangs, and trim them to your face. "Try to get human hair, because it always looks better," says Syfu. "If you do use synthetic, try to knock out that plastic shine with dry shampoo."
