One of today’s most popular designs, the timeless elegance of face-framing layers with a fashionable bottleneck fringe, shows the charm of simplicity.
The simplicity of it all—fresh, wholesome, and uncomplicated. It all starts with the correct materials to produce the perfect canvas for face-framing accents with just the right amount of bend achieved with temperature-controlled heat tools that don’t harm hair.
How To Do Bottleneck Fringe with Face-Framing Layers
- Start with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like Redken All Soft.
- For smoothing, use a volume booster like Redken Volume Maximizer at the root and Redken Align 12 in the mids and ends. Use heat-resistant goods and comb through to ensure even dispersion.
- Hair should be divided into five to six horizontal portions.
- With a paddle brush, begin blow drying in the nape, brushing the hair up and away from the scalp.
- Switch to a circular brush like the Sam Villa Artist Series Spiral Thermal Brush once hair is 75 to 85 per cent dry. When drying, keep adding volume and smoothness.
- Steps 4 and 5 should be repeated until all of the parts are totally dry.
- Curl hair away from the face with a 1.5-inch wand and a Marcel iron, such as the Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Iron. Allow two to three curls to form on either side before brushing.
- Form a bottleneck shape into the fringe with your hands.
- To add shine and polish, smooth hair with boar bristles.
