Emma Watson unveiled a darker hair colour and choppy micro fringe as her new look for 2018. The style combined pixie with a textured, dreamy effect that had all the hallmarks of uncompromisingly chic.
Joan Smalls has the bone structure to pull off this blunt and quite daunting style. Her razored fringe falls well-above the brows, which (by the way) need to be immaculate. Her stylist used dry oil finishing spray to get both shine and priced-out texture.

Emma Roberts embraced the retro feeling with a super blunt bob adored with a poker straight fringe. She paired her hairdo with a white, satin Giorgio Armani gown and vintage-inspired red lip at the Critic’s Choice Awards.
