You know that awkward-phase you go through when you’re growing out your fringe? The time when the length seems not-quite-here or not-quite-there, and all it does it stick to the side of your head? Yup, nasty.

Au Jour Le Jour Milan Spring 15

We’ve found three simple hairstyles you can do to keep those “curtains” away from your face; pretty “curtain tiebacks and tassels” in other words (ha, ha). Until of course, your next appointment with your hairstylist. Heck, we’ll keep these hairstyles instead.

For the girl who never misses Laneway. (Kate Bosworth had this on at Coachella, tied to a mini bun for a half updo, by the way.) And if you are digging the whole centre parting trend, because we sure are.

WATCH: Vlogger Cassie Eats You does a French braid at the top of her head and pins the ends to the side.

This one’s fail-safe. Wear it to the office, for a night out or even over the weekend – it works for all occasions.

WATCH: Beauty vlogger Jen from From Head To Toe gets it – the pain of having a slinky fringe that just won’t stay in place. She teaches you how to solve it with the super cute updo.

Okay, not all of us are blessed with nimble fingers to criss-cross sections of hair over and under multiple times. So try this one instead.

WATCH: Beauty vlogger Morganbishopp uses just two sections of hair to create a style that looks somewhat similar to the waterfall braid. And because we know there’s no such thing as two-day hair in Singapore, we suggest using a volumising spray and blow-drying your hair first.
