Seb Bascle is back at the Studio ByCalliste and we are lucky enough to be able to see him between catwalk shows in the middle of Fashion Week in Paris!
This time it’s Karine who will try out one of her dream hairstyles…
Bangs (or a fringe) without cutting her hair. Sounds like… magic! How is this possible?!
Ever precise and organized, Seb explains how to prepare the hair and the indispensible steps to follow, for a striking result.
So… should Karine have bangs or not, what do you think?
In any case, it’s simple and easy to do for a night out or if you’re in the mood to change your look completely – temporarily!
Your turn to try it out!
Today I am lucky enough to have Seb Bascle beside me, who is going to show me how to wear a fringe any way I like, quickly and easily. And yes, it is possible, with a false fringe and Seb’s invaluable advice!
First of all, you’ll have to buy a false fringe, made of real hair, which can be fixed with little clippable combs built in. SIBI has good quality ones that are ready to use.
To start, I create a center a parting with a metal comb with a long tail from Triumph, which helps me get a more accurate line.
Next, following Seb’s advice, I separate a section each side at the front, going from my parting vertically to just behind my ear, using the metal comb.
I take this section and put it in front of my ear and fix the rest of my hair back behind my ear with a flat metal separation clip.
The idea now is to hide the front section behind the ear. We brush it with the natural bristle brush in order to avoid any static electricity. Next, I just have to tuck it flat behind my ear and pin it with a bobby pin at the temple so it stays perfectly flat. Then I bring the rest of my hair forward again to cover the hair grip, leaving a sort of triangle of hair at the front.
The hair is ready, I can now clip the fringe onto my hair, it’s as simple as that.
You can wear the fringe in a variety of styles and ways, straight, or wispy, short, long, and so on.
Personally I had always wanted to try a straight, eyebrow-level fringe and so Seb gives me a few pointers to achieve this. It might look complicated but it’s not so hard!
It’s important to have small haircutting scissors and to position yourself straight in front of the mirror. Seb advises me to begin cutting from the side, sliding the scissors along my eyebrows which helps me to have a steadier hand and to progress little by little, following their line. Step by step !
For thicker fringes, it’s best to do it in two steps, dividing the thickness in two.
Once the fringe has been cut the way I want it, I can then change the style again, wearing it shorter or longer by clipping it higher or lower.
Your turn to play around with having a fringe!
