It wouldn’t be unfair to say that whilst fringes suit some ladies, they definitely don’t work for others. Even the top celebrity hair stylists sometimes get it wrong on their clients by chopping fringes into the hair of their clients, as shown here in my expert look at bad celebrity fringes.
Following her infamous meltdown in 2007, during which she shaved her hair off entirely, Britters stepped back onto the red carpet in 2012 with a similarly questionable hairstyle. The awkward fringe was neither blunt nor straight-cut, whilst the volume at the roots gave the whole look that highly undesirable, ‘wig-like’ appearance. She also needed to touch up those roots!
Since she is better known as the babe of The Big Bang Theory, I fully expected actress Kaley Cuoco to look her best at all times. Last year, she was papped on the red carpet with this unusual deep set and narrow fringe, that gave the illusion of her head being was much larger than it actually was! She’s clearly a beautiful girl but this fringe did absolutely nothing for her.
Star of The OC Rachel Bilson has long been a style icon in Hollywood, however the fringe look is one that certainly doesn’t work for her – nor for girls of a similarly petite frame. This large, bouncy fringe swamped her small head and didn’t work with her heart shaped face. That’s not to say that Rachel can’t work a fringe – look at snaps of her with a side-swept fringe for better hair-spiration.
Keira Knightley is the human embodiment of the ‘English Rose’ so when she stepped out hidden behind this huge, lank fringe, we were left somewhat disappointed that we couldn’t see her beauty. Sat alongside the messy curls, this whole look seemed a little King Charles Spaniel, rather than radiant rose. Show us your cheekbones, Keira!
Blonde bombshell Hayden Panettiere is another starlet known for her red carpet glamour, so this bleach blonde, fringe-fronted look was a huge surprise when it appeared in celebrity magazines across the globe. Much like Britney’s fringe at the start of this article, Hayden’s bangs are choppy and uneven, giving what should be a sleek straight look a very different appearance. Oh Hayden – couldn’t you find a stylist who could at least cut your fringe in a straight line?!
