This weekend we were casually perusing Instagram (as you do) when something caught our eye. It was They All Hate Us’ Tash Sefton. With a fringe. Not just any fringe, mind you – this one was fake. Yes. You read that right. Clip-on fake fringes are totally a thing.
Here’s what Tash had to say about hers:
“We were shooting with Schwarzkopf and their hair styling team suggest me with a fringe. At first I freaked thinking they wanted to cut my hair but said it’s super easy as it’s a hair piece. When they put it on I felt transformed! Like a new person. A chicer (younger) version of me. Elle was with me and begged for one also! I love the idea of the non commitment of the “fake fringe“. 20 minutes later it was out and it was the old me. But everyone since thinks I should do it for real (including my husband and mum).”
Tash was sporting a Headlines Hairpiece ‘Simple Fringe’, which will set you back $49 and is out soon. Headlines also make not-so-simple fringes, starting from $79.20.
Then, we unearthed a cheapie Lady Jayne version for $24.99 from Priceline. Here’s what all the blondes in the office looked like trying it on.
… Not quite as good as Tash Sefton’s, but it was still a fun experiment. What surprised us was how universally younger a fringe can make you look.
This is definitely something we’ll be playing with to road-test a big haircut in the future.
Would you wear a fake fringe?
