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.

After I hurt my neck I couldn’t find anyone who could bring me any relief. I was lucky to find Joanna, who immediately eased my pain with her combination of acupuncture needles and use of the Bowen technique. Throughout my recovery she was very patient and supportive, providing a calming atmosphere and recommending exercises to help me get stronger and get back to my life.

I saw Joanna when I was pregnant and overdue. My hope was to get some acupuncture to try to naturally coax labour, as well as to relax me. I’d had acupuncture elsewhere which hadn’t worked, but was so blown away by my experience with Joanna. She was so caring, diligent and really took the time on both treating me and talking me through what she was doing and offering a lot of helpful hints. I felt instantly different after our session and loved every moment. My only regret is not finding Joanna earlier! I’d definitely recommend her for anyone in pregnancy, whether it’s to relax or help encourage labour.

I’ve been visiting Shine for 20 years, now both my adult children and husband do too, with good reason. Our stylist Joanna cuts and colours both mine and my daughter’s hair beautifully and we simply wouldn’t risk going to anyone else. My husband and son both have thick, difficult hair which Joanna transforms each visit, we love her !I always enjoy the whole experience at Shine and would highly recommend.

I wanted to say a big thank you to Shine for booking my appointment for hair and make up for my wedding at a very short notice. Jessica did my hair while Flaminia helped with the make up. They both have been super professional, patient and did exactly what I wanted. They gave me very helpful suggestions and I was really happy with the results. I have received many compliments on my special day and I will definitely recommend both to my friends. If you are struggling with finding a place for your special day, Shine is the place to go!!

My partner urged me to book an appointment with Joanna because I was having problems with my knees which made walking, and especially stair climbing, a problem. I also had a longer term problem with insomnia which left me always feeling tired. My initial excuse for not seeing her was that I’d convinced myself that Joanna only treated women. This was reinforced because, for some Man reason, I could not accept that the Bowen treatment my partner had received could possibly be, for me, the success it was for her. That was how I went into the first treatment session. I came out a different person. Joanna is a careful listener, attentively observant and a perceptive deducer of things you think are either irrelevant or too sensitive to mention. Initial feelings of vulnerability dissipate once you appreciate that she cares. That empathy matched with delivery of effective treatment, in my case a combination of Bowen and acupuncture, proved to be a winning combination. I left that first treatment feeling I was floating on air with vanished pain and a need to head for my bed. There was some subsequent relapse but, after each treatment, this gradually diminished until, after half dozen or so appointments, I’m not only free of knee pain but now enjoy uninterrupted and lengthy sleep. It does work and I'm now embarrassed I was so reluctant to see her.

I've had several messages with Mattea during my first pregnancy and they've all been wonderful - she is knowledgeable, caring and always keen to tailor her treatments to my needs. She also combines CT and massage which I've found to be very relaxing and beneficial. I would highly recommend her especially to any expectant mums!

I would highly recommend Valeria for acupuncture for labour preparation. She is very knowledgable, kind and made herself available for sessions at short notice. I had two acupuncture sessions with Valeria at 40 weeks and 40 2 for labour preparation. Before my sessions, my labour was not progressing spontaneously and I was told that I’d need an induction to kickstart cervix dilation / labour. Within hours of my second session, my labour started naturally and I had a straightforward delivery and I believe the acupuncture was the main contributing factor. As well as the acupuncture, Valeria provided helpful advice/ exercises for me to practice at home.
