Many commoners such as ourselves simply aren't able to handle the fringe lifestyle. Between keeping it cut properly in parallel to the rest of your hair, making sure it stays in place and isn't blinding you; it's a 24/7 job.

Kendall Jenner has seemingly decided to commit to that bangs lifestyle, but then again she does have a team of hairstylists to help her.

She's showing off her brand new look in a recent selfie, and we have to say: she's lookin' FINE.

While most fringes tend to divide people, we're fairly positive that Kendall's will get the A-plus rating.

The 24-year-old model looks really different to her normal lewk, and some are even saying she's resembling her mum, Kris Jenner, a lot more now.

The famous Kardashian family are renowned for trying out wigs and hair extensions, so who knows if the hairstyle is just temporary or if it's a permanent move.

Kendall captioned her Instagram image; “yes, no, maybe so?” and people are LOVING it. We think… there was the odd 'no' response, but it's probably just minor sh*t-stirring.

The last time she rocked a look even remotely like this was at the AMAs back in the olden days of 2015  with a long fringe, and she really does look like her mom-ager there.

We think she looks shockingly like fellow model Emily Ratajkowski, especially with all that pouting. What do you gals think of the look?

Even been in one of those awkward situations where your friend says they want a certain hairstyle but you know it wont look good on them?

It's one of the most awkward times in friendship history, but you know as a true friend, you cant let them go through with it. 

One comedy duo have crystallised the various emotions of this in a gas new video.

Cutting a fringe is one of the most delicate and difficult hair changes to go through, and all of us have given the choppy bangs a go.

Whether it was a primary school bowl cut or an art college fashion fringe, baby bangs can look amazing on some but not-so-hot on others, and when it's your best mate who doesn't suit it, it can be a little awkward. 

Jen Hatton and Emma Doran's new video is all about stopping your bestie for making an epic hair mistake, and it's completely hilarious.

"Look, I've met loads of people who have a fringe now, I think it will look good," says Emma, playing the fringe fan. 

"It was different then, I was in a different place," she says as Jen beseeches her not to go for the chop. 

"Think of the clips!" says Jen, as she accuses her mate of relapsing back into fringe territory, before producing a picture of an old fringe that dissolves Emma to tears.

We were in tears ourselves laughing at the video.

Check it out for yourselves: 


She may be best known for her beachy, balayage infused hairstyle, but that doesn’t mean Gigi Hadid can’t work a multitude of looks.

Appearing at a CFDA event last night, the Californian model debuted a new full fringe ‘do and already the style has earned itself the title of “hairspo” among the star’s followers.

Since the fringe was paired with volumized hair and a strong bun-based up-do, we’re interested to see how Gigi’s bangs will look when the rest of her hair is down.

Ariana Grande has been rocking a similar style for AGES now. High half ponytail with loads of volume?

Yup… that'll be Ms Grande alright.

However, the 23-year-old songstress has finally taken the plunge – opting for a cut and colour that is totally GORGEOUS on her.

Hinting at the revamp with a black-and-white full-lenght selfie yesterday, Ariana has now given fans a proper glimpse of her new do.

Rocking a darker, deep brunette hue, the Florida-born star showed off a fab fringe which totally freshened-up her appearance.

And while most fans were gushing over those bangs, it seems that some online observers weren't quite so happy… because, they claim, she's only copying rival popstar Selena Gomez's look.

Selena, 24, debuted her fringe back in June – and we have to admit that Ms Grande's revamped tresses are remarkably similar. 

Still, one Instagram user offered: "Why is every selenator hating Ariana bc of her hair, Selena and Ariana are friends…"



We have never quite known fringe envy until Kendall Jenner rocked up to the AMAs with perhaps the most covetable bangs we have ever seen. 

And just as were about to make an impulsive trip to the hair salon (which we would have ultimately regretted!), we learned that Kendall did not go for the chop and instead just faked her look with some ingenious hair styling. 

This week, Perrie also tried to lull us into going for some illustrious bangs but her perfect up do was also faked. 

So how can you achieve the ultimate set of bangs without the commitment? Well all you need is some bobbins, hair pins and patience!


Somebody help. Japan is taking over me.

Grab a bobbin and pull your into a high pony. Take half of your pony and pull it over the bobbin towards your face. Pin the hair securely on the top of your head, creating a half bun.

Leaving the ends to frame your face, split the remaining hair in the ponytail in two and wrap around the half bun you created. Pin the bun as desired. 

Lastly, just style your fringe! 

If you are still struggling, check out this super easy tutorial below. 




The Seventies is officially the decade of 2015. Apart from the onslaught of flared trousers, suede and paisley, the most covetable wardrobe items of season tend to come with a little bit of fringing.

Whether the fringe is on your boots, your bag, your skirt or your jacket, it doesn’t matter once it’s on you (though perhaps not all at once). 

But how can you make sure you get fringe right without looking like you just walked off the set of Back To The Future 3? Well, we got you covered, babes.

2) The Fringed Bag

Use a fringed bag to add some messy texture to an outfit or make like the lovely Olivia and use it to pick up on the fringed detailing in your outfit.

One way to really make a statement at the office Christmas party is to invest in the perfect fringe dress.

If you've had a fringe or bangs, you've more than likely been on an emotional roller coaster while growing them out. 

Don't worry, we've all been there. So, whether it's your first time or hundredth, you can expect to go through these stages of the process: 


Yay! You're growing out your fringe.You just can't wait to toss your hair over your shoulder each morning and not have to worry about styling your fringe so you don't look like the Grinch. You're SO over bangs anyway. 



It looks like your hair grew about half a centimetre this week, hurrah! At this rate, you can shove your fringe behind your ears in a week or two. And you better stock up some clips and pins in the meantime. 



You knew it wasn't going to be easy, but does it really take THIS long. You've read every article there is about styling your hair while growing it out, but nothing works for you. And can anyone over 7-years-old really pull off a hairband?!


Joy (when you see a slight progress)

OK maybe you can rock the side swept look. "Where are all of those clips I bought last week though?!"… They're long gone, so you'll have to use some mega-hold hairspray. 



It's just not going right. Maybe you need to take some hair-growing supplements. Or, maybe there's something wrong with your diet or shampoo. Would hair extensions work?! So many questions. 



You have a big event coming up next week and you realise there's no way you can wear your hair down without looking like a shaggy dog. Maybe if you snip off that tiny uncontrollable bit it might look a bit better. 



OMG, what a disaster. Why did you go near those scissors. That's it, it's time to call your hairdresser ASAP for an emergency appointment. She'll sort it out. 



You walk out of the hairdressers sporting bangs like Beyoncé. It's OK though, you'll be growing them out again in no time… right?


Littlewoods Ireland held their Spring Summer 2015 fashion show this week showcasing their latest collection. Our reporter Laura Haugh went along to check out what’s trending and the key pieces we should look out for in the coming season. Check it out.


So what does the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival and Niall Breslin aka Bressie have in common?

The ever popular Fringe Festival has been dominating our streets and theatres in Dublin for the past couple of weeks so we thought we’d better check out one of these productions! The Belle Bottoms is a musical comedy featuring two sassy ladies and their hilarious outlook on what it was like growing up in the 1970’s.

Our Entertainment Reporter Niamh Geaney got chatting to Bressie on his involvement and also to the Musical Director Liam Bates who in the past has worked with the likes of Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi!

As we had Bressie on hand we thought we’d try get him to tell us who is going to fill Dolores’s coaching seat on the Voice, what are these production company rumours we’ve been hearing and if he plans to delve into acting a bit more!

Niamh went along to see the show after and she says if you’re a fan of disco and laughter, it’s for you! The Belle Bottoms is on in the Smock Alley Theatre until Saturday the 20th of September and is also making a spin to Spiegeltent in Wexford from the 29th to the 31st of October.

If you have missed any of this week’s shows, then fear not, the catch-up will be on its way to you shortly! Enjoy



Fringes look cool – we’re thinking Zooey Deschanel here – well, that is until they start getting in your eyes and constantly needing a trim to keep them even slightly tame.

It can take a few months for your bangs to grow out so in the meantime try these styles:

Tight pony tail
Put a little mousse onto your fringe and brush it back with the rest of your hair. Pull into a pony tail and secure with a bobbin. Keep it in place by spraying on some hairspray.

Side plait
A side plait is great for when your fringe is just too short to be pulled into a ponytail but too long to simply let it fall in front of your eyes. Put your hair in a deep side parting and pull it all over to one side. Style into a plait and secure any loose strands with bobby pins.  Finish with a little hairspray.

Hair band

Invest in a funky hair band so that when you do pull your fringe back it won’t be able to fall forward. Bobby pins are also great accessories and you don’t have to stick to the typical brown ones.

Twist it
If you can, pull your fringe to one side and twist it. Tuck it into your hairline and secure with bobby pins. Don’t forget the hairspray.

Centre parting
Part your hair in the centre and divide your bangs in the middle. Clip with bobby pins at the side and pull longer hair forward over it.
