Long Waves With A Side-Swept Fringe: Subtle But Glamorous

This side-swept style, not all fringe or all layers, is subtle and cool. Let's zoom in on long, side-swept fringes: a timeless, hybrid haircut.

Why choose between a long fringe and layers?

If you can't decide if your long hair needs layers or a fringe, there is a perfect medium: a side-swept fringe, or a side section of hair. A side part is needed for this super subtle cut, whose asymmetric effect gives your hair shape and movement.

Looking for a change?

According to L'Oréal Professionnel hairstylist Delphine Courteille, sectioning the hair to the side is the best way to manage 'growing out your fringe', although it will need styling so that it naturally blends with your hair, like another layer. It's also a great choice for those happy with their fringe but want a change every now and then.

Essential styling

With slightly wavy, side-swept fringes, straight hair is not an option: your do needs volume and for that, a visit to the salon is in order. No amount of hairspray is enough to get the 70s/80s vibe. For your side-swept fringe to have that retro flair, a radial brush and a blow-dryer are your BFFs!
