Will a French-Girl Fringe Suit Me? 

Fringes are usually a softening feature so they suit most people. The only situation where they don’t is where the area of the forehead to the hair line is not very high and a fringe could have the effect of closing in the face too much. But even then, in some cases, this can be resolved by making the fringe wider. Check out our quick guide on what fringe suits your face shapebelow…
Long and narrow faces: This look should work well on you, as fringes that hit just below the brows will make your face look fuller.
Round or square faces: Fringes can make circular faces appear even wider, so finding the right shape is key. Ask for a graphic, curved style that will flatter bone structure. The thicker the better, as wispy versions will have less impact.
Heart-shaped faces: Jackpot! You’re the lucky ones and can get away with pretty much everything. But if you want something definitive, the ideal style is layered and feathered -perfect for the French-Girl look.

Your French-Girl Fringe Consultation at Our Top Stoke Newington Salons

When describing this cut, bring a picture or screenshot along to your appointment at our Stoke Newington hair salons, so you and your Shine stylist can be on the same page – after all, one person’s ‘long’ is another person’s ‘shaggy’ is another person’s ‘sexy.’ Bear in mind, though, that during your complimentary consultation at Shine, your stylist will access your face shape and hair type to ensure that a ‘French girl fringe’ is for you.

Top Tips For Looking After Your French-Girl Fringe 

Regular Trims at Shine: To create that effortless French vibe, your Shine stylist will leave the ends of your new fringe feathery as opposed to blunt. However, with any kind of Fringe, you’re still looking at regular trims in order to keep their shape, so keep that in mind.

Stock Up On Dry Shampoo: There’s no doubt that you’ll be touching and playing with your fringe a lot, especially at the beginning, which will just produce some extra oiliness.  We recommend travelling with a little mini dry shampoo, like XXXXXX available at our Stoke Newington salon. It’s perfect for stopping a fringe from separating and keeping it fresh and volumised throughout the day.

Salon Review by Kay
so I just wanted to leave some feedback regarding my recent experience at Shine Holistic. I’d been in a few times before and initially had my consultation back in June I think? I came in to ask if they could restore my complete mess of a hair. It was so dry, damaged and the colour was awful as I’d been on and off bleaching it at home over the years and allowed it to grow out for a year. At this point, I didn’t have much hope for my hair and just wanted it to look better than it was, and asked for my roots to get bleached up. With the help of the staff at Shine, I was feeling fairly happy with my hair again by the end of July. However – after my last visit, which was today, I am seriously over the moon with my hair and can honestly say I’ve never felt more confident with it. This is 10000000% due to Jessica. Throughout the appointment, she asked about the future I wanted for my hair (my hair goals), gave me plenty of advice on how to protect and care for it (because I’d really messed it up in the past) and kept making sure I was happy along every step of the way. One of the things that I really loved was that through every step, she’d explain what she was doing and what it would achieve so that I understood what was going on and felt super comfortable throughout all of it. I appreciate that put so much effort into getting my hair as perfect as possible and felt as though she went the extra mile in making it look so perfect where other hairdressers might have given up or not tried as hard. I think she’s full of creativity and energy and she displays that in what she does, I’m well happy with the result and honestly so many of my mates have said this is the best they’ve ever seen my hair. Being someone who had really bad hair when I’d initially come in, and hence had super bad confidence in my hair for so many years, and also was superrrr super nervous even coming into the salon each time because of the state my hair was in, I am incredibly grateful to the way in which Jessica boosted that confidence back into my hair. She was also so lovely to chat to, super chill and caring (I had a bit of a sick turn at some point) and I don’t see myself ever wanting to get my hair done with anyone else ever again. So yeah big up Jess she’s the absolute best I can’t stress enough x

I went to Leon with a back problem that has troubled me for years. In a single session he identified the problem and gave me some exercises to work with at home. He didn't tell me that I needed to come back for a follow up, but left it to me to contact him if I felt the need. That single session has completely changed my attitude to my back. I'm no longer terrified when I feel it twinge that if I carry on exercising to keep fit it will lead to long term disaster. I now turn to the exercises he gave me to settle it and carry on. Brilliant.

Just back from my third colour and cut with Jessica and am happy! I really enjoy Jessica's approach and appreciation of what I want in relation to what she thinks will work! I've been a long term client of Shine over the years and pleased that I can keep coming back to find new and talented hairdressers. Thanks Jessica!
Thank you Georgie, We will be sure to pass on your kind words to Jessica and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Salon Review by Sophie
I had the most amazing massage with Charlotte! I honestly think it was the best massage I have ever had! Charlotte spent time with me at the beginning to discuss what I wanted out of my time which was both emotional and physical stress relief. I came away feeling soothed and relaxed. I can highly recommend Charlotte and I will be sure to book again!
Salon Review by SM
I had been through a major shift in my life, some great, some heartbreaking. I wasn't sleeping and i felt really uptight. Alfredo treated me with such care and consideration, I was able to really relax and let go. I slept 13hours that night. I would recommend him highly. S.M.
Thank you, we will pass on your kind words to Alfredo

Leon is a brilliantly skilled Osteopath. Whilst making you feel very cared for he also articulates what he is working on to help us understand our bodies better. As a dancer he is aware of the demands on the body and works with you to bring about ultimate function and comfort in movement, also suggesting exercises to do outside of the therapy room so you have knowledge to take away with you. Couldn't recommend enough

You know when you find your hairdresser and suddenly no one else could possibly ever touch your hair. Well thats what I’ve found in Johiem!!! I was recommended Johiem by one of my best friends and for the past 3 years he has been blowing my mind with every hair cut/ colour appointment I’ve had with him. Not only is he an absolute wizard with knowing what I want more than I do , but his company and customer service is second to none. He always goes above and beyond and makes your feel very special . Could not recommend him any higher.!!

So pleased to have found Leon. Whether it’s pain from stress, sport or long standing creakiness he’s always been able to help. I like his friendly and focused approach. An inspired and very effective osteopath.
