I was playing around with my fringe while filming a tutorial on my basic style and I did a couple of other styles too so I thought I would include them. This video has some tips on how I keep my fringe looking good in Melbourne’s weather. .

4 Fun Fringe Hairstyle Instructions.
Today’s video is all about different ways to style your fringe.
At the moment, I have a straight block fringe with layers framing my face to just below my chin.
For fringe styling I used my brush, teasing comb, hair spray and a straightener.
I also spray with heat protector before I style to prevent as much damage as possible
The first style I’m trying is a puffy curled almost retro roll.
So I split the hair into 3 sections.
Grab the middle section and hold it straight outwards.
Run the straightener down it and at the end curl it sharply underneath.
It make take a few goes to make it even.
Let it cool in the shape and then run a comb through it.
You can see how severe the curl is at the end.
Fan the middle section out until it reached both the other sides.
Angle the straightener at 45 degrees and then curl the side sections in the same way.
Make sure that you curl them inwards towards your face, they should match up with the angle of the middle part.
And that’s one look done!
The more severely you curl the middle under, the more it will stick out and look like it’s a 1950’s school girl style.
The next look is my every day look.
It uses the same technique on the middle section to begin with and then I straighten the sides instead of curling them.
To keep it in place all day in Melbourne’s wind I use hairspray.
Then I lightly tease the underside of the middle, I do the teasing in a couple of sections to make sure I get it all and there’s no weird gaps.
It looks pretty silly at this point.
Then I smooth the top back down with the comb and hairspray it again.
When I’m combing, I’m just lightly pulling it down, not going through the whole way so the teasing isn’t ruined.
Not even Melbourne’s wind can move this now!
If the wind does destroy my fringe, I just do a side part like this.
The curl under the bottom makes a really cute side swept look.
And it’s much more wind friendly.
Lastly, for something completely different, here are some Farrah flicks!
Do a side part and then angle the straightener at 45 degrees.
This time curl away from your face.
It’s much easier to do the side with the most hair in small sections like this.
And you want a gentle flick away from the face.
The more you rotate the straightener, the bigger the flicks will be.
It looks a bit weird with the ponytail but imagine it with a full head of curls and flicks, it would be epic 1970’s style!
So there you have it, a couple of different ways to style your fringe!
