Kristen Stewart is the queen of the grunge haircut. From mullets to wolf cuts, she plays around with the most directional styles but still manages to never put a foot wrong. The latest tricky-to-pull-off look Kristen has conquered? The micro fringe.
Stewart unveiled the new look on the opening night of the Sundance Film Festival (where she was given the Visionary Award), showing off new bangs that sat a couple of centimeters above her brows and were styled with her signature lived-in texture, courtesy of her longtime hairstylist, Adir Abergel.
A fringe like this is difficult to pull off, but naturally, Stewart makes it look easy. Confidence (which she has in spades) is a prerequisite, but it’s also a look that works best when it isn’t cut with too much precision or worn too neatly. If you don’t already have a fringe, copy Stewart and start with curtain bangs first, to see how you feel. A micro fringe requires commitment, as it takes a lot longer to grow out.
A perfect style for anyone with good brows and beautiful facial features, the micro fringe was popularized by Audrey Hepburn back in the 1950s—and it either works on you or it doesn’t. On Kristen Stewart, paired with face-framing tendrils falling out of an otherwise artfully messy updo, it works.
