Maintaining a blunt fringe during the summer can be difficult with the heat and humidity factors. If you’ve worn a blunt, box fringe during the cooler months, grow it out slightly leading into the height of summer. Then, instead of trying to keep it perfect and straight, part it down the middle for a chic boho look that is much more accomodating of a little bit of frizz and flyaways.
