No. After 44 years of and numerous haircuts where I decide that a fringe would be the answer to all my hair problems, followed by tears and months and months of growing it out, I would say no. Unless you are willing to either spend a lot of time and effort on blow drying and straightening. Or you like the full bush of pubes on your forehead look.
You can but you will need to style it. Personally I wouldn’t and I have loosely curly hair but then I am very lazy and prefer no styling.
I had one when I was about 20 which was very long (from the crown forward- never again) so that kind of helped with styling as the shorter it is the more the hair will spring up.
I then had a side fringe which I could easily sweep back- that was okay, but to get the full effect it needed to be blow dryer straight/ straightened. I got really bored of the straight fringe, curly hair look though.
I have very curly hair and also wear my fringe curly. Yes it is a bit 70s but I like it and like to think I am a bit Farah Fawcett! I Apply curl cream and twist the hair into loose curls when wet then dry naturally. The pic that I often show hairdressers is from the John Lewis jeans ads which featured a curly fringed model here goo.gl/images/kFbyd1
Here is Rihanna rocking a curly fringe, I think it can be done as long as you don’t have it all cut thick and straight across... some soft layering and defined curls around the face is essential goo.gl/images/qbzBGq
I have very wavy hair. I have a fringe. It ishard work though. But,l want this style and must suffer for my beauty! I actually like very curly hair with a fringe- looks wild! In my case though...one fat pube!
