Tips From Hair Stylists and Celebs on Growing Out a Fringe

Q) Help! How Do You Grow Out a Fringe Stylishly?

The obvious answer is that you don't. Fringes are slippery little suckers that look great in the 0.08 seconds after you've just finished styling them and hideous the rest of the time. Well, not hideous. But not knock-your-socks-off. That's for sure. They're especially tedious when it comes to growing them out. Been there, done that, yet always find myself drawn to the allure of them. You too? Our girl Lea Michele was but is now fully in the throes of Awkward In-Betweeny Stage so I thought I'd share some advice that some experts have shared with me in the past:

A) A very wise man — let's call him TRESemmé Head Stylist Joh Bailey — once told me the golden rule of growing out a fringe: pin it back. Plain and simple. "Either straight back or to the side. Then, once it's long enough, you can hide it with the longer hair," or work it into a braid. That's what I do. Because Oscar Cullinan, of Oscar Oscar salons told me too. Way back before braids were even big news. Dianna Agron's roll braid is a great way to "hide" your not-quite-grown-out strands, and if not invest in some cute hair slides like DKrug or Alexa.
