Maximise the versatility of your tresses and make the most of your hair by faking your way to style reinvention with our guide to creating an edgy faux fringe.

Here’s how to create a faux fringe:

step 1:
Use the ghd paddle brush on dry hair to brush out any knots and smooth your locks. Sweep the remainder of your hair into a high pony and secure with a hair tie.

step 2:
Separate a 3-4 inch section from the front of your high pony and bring it forward, over your hairline.

step 3:
Using hair pins to secure the front section of hair so it sits over your forehead, create a faux fringe at your preferred length.

Tip: For an edgier and super-cool look, incorporate longer strands at the edge of your faux fringe.

step 4:
Once your fringe is in place, take the remaining hair in your pony and gently backcomb with the ghd tail comb to create body in your final look.

step 5:
Wrap the ponytail around its base to create an oversized topknot, being sure to conceal the hair pins holding your faux fringe in place.

step 6:
Secure your topknot with hair pins to secure your style.

Tip: To smooth any flyaways, mist ghd final fix hairspray on your ghd oval dressing brush and gently glide it over the outside of your topknot for a flawless look.

step 7:
Finally, create a sleek finish with ghd final shine spray for instant shine.

A temporary change can be the key to keeping your look fresh. Experience the transformative powers of the ever versatile faux fringe and completely update your style – without having to opt for the cut.
