1. A decorative, ornamental border
2. An outer edge
3. The front part of a person's hair cut so as to hang over the forehead; bangs.
Fringe or bangs……don’t split hairs, call them what you will. We’re OK with both, although usually you’ll hear fringe abroad while we prefer bangs here in the US. The very thought of a fringe immediately brings forth a multitude of options, and we’ll showcase a few ways to showcase your eyes and face with a fringe of hair.
Audrey Hepburn is notably one of the most iconic women to wear her hair styled with bangs. She magnified her huge eyes and lush eyebrows by framing them with ultra short bangs. Often seen photographed straight on, she brushed her fringe to the side; breaking from a harsh line. Source: @audreyhepburn

If you are undecided or even terrified to take the plunge from no bangs to bangs, try playing with your long locks and simply fold or pin them under in front to get a sneak peek of your future fringe. Remember two important things here: 1) there is no right or wrong choice 2) hair grows.
