We’re used to Sophie Turner showcasing hair colour transformations; she often switches between blonde – the colour she was born with, and red – the shade she became synonymous with since playing Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones.
But the actress tends to maintain a consistency with her haircut; it’s nearly always a chest-skimming long length and styled in a centre or deep side parting with mermaid-worthy waves. So, her latest look is a true head-turner.
Stepping out in New York City last week the star revealed a long fringe, cut into her flowing locks. A subtle yet distinct makeover, the feathery fringe frames Turner’s face beautifully with her rich auburn tones, red being a shade that’s always popular for the autumn/winter season, and even more so in 2022 since it’s trended in A-list circles.
While this time last year, ‘curtain bangs’ were being cut into people’s hair left, right and centre, now ‘wispy bangs’ are having a moment. A perfect way to frame the face in a gentle way that is less harsh than the traditional full fringe, this hairstyle adds an element of softness to your look and makes an impact by highlighting the cheekbones.
Though fringes can seem like a big commitment, this version of the cut can be versatile as you can adjust the length of the bangs depending on your desired look. The look also offers many options when choosing what to do with the rest of your hair; leaving all of your hair down, or even half-up, will add a gentle touch around your face, while tying the hair into a ponytail or bun and leaving the fringe out creates an eye-catching look.
When having a fringe cut, it’s always advisable to have a consultation with your hairdresser to identify the perfect style to suit your face shape and lifestyle. Should you opt for a wispy fringe like Turner’s, hair straighteners can help create the perfect curve around your face. One of our favourites is the Dyson Corrale Straightener, which allow for a luxurious finish. The patented ‘flexing’ plates are designed to grip every strand, meaning you won’t need to go over the same section twice and therefore reduces any risk of heat damage – though you should always protect your hair before heat styling with a product like the Kérastase Genesis Defense Thermique Heat Protector.
