Fringes are an enigma to me.

They look effortlessly cool, chic and super stylish on everybody else. But when I once decided to go all-in and get a full fringe (two months before being my sister’s maid of honour, no less), I… well, had a breakdown. I looked like an awkward child and it just did not suit me.

Add to that, my natural hair texture – waves and loose curls – and I had no idea how to style it. Instead, I clamped a straightener on it every day, burning it to a crisp until it sat as flat and long as possible, in an attempt to convince myself it was actually growing.

So, when I saw Camila Cabello’s curly fringe at the MTV VMAs, it felt like a bit of a eureka moment.

For her performance at the awards show, Camila’s fringe was styled in loose ringlets, similar to her natural hair texture – and it looked gorgeous. Each curl touched the top of her eyebrow and gave that effortless vibe I’ve always wanted to achieve with a fringe.

The rest of her hair was braided into two suuuper long plaits by celebrity hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos – perfect to swish around during her dance-fuelled performance.

Hm, maybe Camila has convinced me to give a full fringe another shot…

LOL, who am I kidding? I'll leave it to the pros.
