While the fringe's heyday dates back to the 70s, it's making a comeback this autumn/winter 2017. From Gigi Hadid to Taylor Swift, see which celebs inspire us to get a new look for the new year.

Eva Green's long fringe

The French model and actress knows just how to match her wavy unstructured locks with a long and slightly feathered fringe. Her hairstyle is natural and light with some strands longer than others. A contrast to baby bangs (an ultra-short version of the fringe), this style runs to under the eyebrows and the top of the cheek bones. Avoid over-brushing to keep the look airy rather than overly styled. With her stylish bangs, Eva's a true effigy of the carefree French woman!

Dakota Johnson's feathered bangs

The solution for those who are still hesitating on taking the plunge and getting a fringe, this style isn't too overbearing nor too absent and it's easy to adapt to all hairstyles. Wear it confidently with your hair out or like in the photo above with hair tied back and the fringe hanging loose in strands on both sides of the face. With this fringe, you can forget the hair-in- your-eyes puppy dog look too. Dakota's fringe has plenty of bohemian spirit, which is a great match for the boho-chic silhouettes very much vogue this season.

Jessica Biel's curtain bangs

Hello 70s! Worn with a low ponytail, this full fringe goes with structured hairstyles with a middle parting. Easier to wear for those of us with straight rather than wavy hair, this fringe stops just under the eyebrows and the hair has to be poker straight. The ideal fringe for those who want a sharp bold style, but as this style of fringe can prove to be a bit rebellious, it should be worn only by those who have time to style it as it needs daily attention to achieve that picture-perfect look.

Taylor Swift's fearless bangs

For a long time, the singer would wear her bangs sideswept, but she's now decided to go all out with her look and try straight-across bangs. She hasn't over-styled it, so her fringe looks slightly messy, with strands flowing freely. The result is a flattering style for the young celeb, who knows how to play on her makeup to let her hair take center-stage and create a glam rock-chic look.
