Variants of cut with long fringe
As he explains Gianni Loda, artistic director Framesi, “Among the most beautiful, iconic and trendy with long fringe we find the bob, the long bob and the cuts with soft scales, in which the tips are scaled, while the upper part remains full. Each of these cuts combined with long fringe has its own pro and his versus, as it is easy to imagine. More precisely, the bob looks like a very regular cut, with the advantage of making the face haughty and elegant. Suitable for those who have a face with delicate, symmetrical and feminine featuresi, it would be better to avoid it if the face is masculine and with marked features. For what concern long bob with long fringe, gives a lot to rectangular, elongated or heart-shaped faces, since the maxi fringe tends to shorten the face. Instead, it does not enhance round or square faces. Finally, in the case of scaled toe cut, it is very versatile and soft in its effect: depending on the styling, it adapts to every face. Open towards the back it lengthens and enhances the small faces, wrapping the important and pronounced mandibular angles on the face. In general, however, the rule applies the long fringe is ideal for elongated and oval faces, because it shortens the face, underlines and makes the gaze magnetic and adds a feminine and sensual touch “.
