I promised you I was going to make a post on my fringe. So today I’m going to tell you my little secret to always have it perfect.
For some time my fringe is cut very low and ends right under my eyebrows, almost on the verge of my eyelashes and the sides are rounded. Before I had a fringe which ended around the eyebrows and that I regularly had cut at the hairdresser. That’s the reason I opted for this length which is more practical.
Having a low fringe means refreshing it quite often unless you want to look like a bobtail.
I found the solution quite some time ago, this way I don’t need to go to the hairdresser only for my fringe even if the staff kindly offered many times to cut it for free, it’s more a question or availability for me.
Thanks to a special tool that I presented on M6 during one of my beauty column, it’s a clip allowing you to cut your hair yourself. You’re going to see that this tool is amazing and it quickly became an essential in my bathroom. The Creaclip that I use, is part of a kit which includes a curve clip to cut your hair.
Today I’m going to show you step by step how to use the Creaclip.
Step 1: let’s gather the material needed.
One Creaclip, a pair of scissors, a comb and one hair straightener.
My hair straightener is from the brand GHD, the best of the best, and I have to admit it’s an essential in my beauty routine. It warms up in 20 seconds and it can be adapted to your hair’s nature. Thanks to it my fringe is perfectly straighten for the whole day. It certainly is an investment but it’s worth every penny spent!
You can also spray some hair spray when your hair is straightened to keep it under control; personally I only use the protective hair spray from GHD.
Step 2: let’s brush that fringe!
Please, always cut your fringe when your hair is dry unless you want it to end in the middle of your forehead. When wet your hair is always heavier and look longer so before doing anything on it let’s dry it. Small reminder: always cut your fringe before putting on make-up or applying cream, otherwise you’ll end up with your face being all sticky!
Step 3: let’s isolate our fringe
Sounds silly but it’s important you isolate your fringe from the rest of your hair. It will help you avoid, in time and years, to end up with a fringe which becomes more and more thicker.
So let’s isolate this fringe by putting the longest hair behind the ears or if it’s short, use some hair tongs.
Step 4: split the fringe in two parts
Why do I separate my fringe into two parts? Simply because I want to keep the round effect on the sides, but also because I want to make sure it’s perfectly equal. The whole fringe is not hold by the Creaclip anyway.
Step 5: let’s place the magical Creaclip on the fringe
Thanks to its handy clip, it will allow you to have one of your hand free, something quite useful if you don’t want to make any mistake. I put half my fringe, which I separated into two parts, halfway up and then close the Creaclip. At this point your hair is now perfectly maintained, they cannot slip out. You don’t need to hold the clip anymore.
Thanks to the level located on the front, I simply adjust it by slightly tapping on the bubble, to make sure I cut my fringe straight.
Once the level is perfectly adjusted I lower the Creaclip where I’d like my fringe to end. If you made a mistake, all you have to do is open the clip and start over from step 5.
Step 7: let’s cut
You don’t need to worry about the level anymore, if you correctly followed the instructions in step 6, your clip is perfectly set and all you need to do is to cut.
I personally cut in one row but you can also cut bits by bits. To do so place the scissors upright and start cutting your hair. The result would be more natural and a little less neat.
I do the same operation, on step 5, 6 and 7, on the second part of my fringe.
Step 8: let’s straight this fringe
To avoid that my fringe gets divided or make “small spikes” I always straighten it with a hair straightener. But before I do that I always apply a bit of protective hair spray from GHD.
It’s a way for me to make sure that the way I cut my hair is done correctly and that I didn’t forget anything. Since I started using the Creaclip my fringe is perfectly straight.
The result I want to get: a fringe with rounded sides, sitting quite low, right over my eyes.
It’s easy, don’t you think?
