Deciding whether or not to go for a fringe is a perennial hair debate. A great set of bangs, as our American friends term them, certainly offers up a little extra intrigue, but there’s also additional effort required: regular trims and a sophisticated blow-dry technique are musts. Still, there is one woman who always makes us reconsider: Dakota Johnson.
The actor first stepped out with a fringe years before she adopted her now-signature brunette shine, wearing choppy bangs with her platinum blonde hair as her career was starting to take off. It was her role in the 50 Shades of Grey franchise, however, and the subsequent epic press tours to accompany all three of the movies, that offered her fringe the platform it truly deserved.
What’s great about Dakota’s fringe is that it offers a sense of laidback ease to glamorous red-carpet hair and off-duty days alike. Often loosely parted in the middle, never cut so that it falls too clumpy or too thick, and always trimmed to that covetable brow-brushing length, her fringe admittedly works best owing to her fine, naturally straight hair. The effortless attitude, though, is one we can all take away. Below, discover 16 photographs of Dakota Johnson’s fringe ready to convince you to reach for the scissors.
