There’s something so effortless about face-framing tendrils. Luckily for fans of ’90s hair trends, tendrils are fully back in style. From celebs such as Megan Thee Stallion to Dua Lipa, effortless tendrils are taking over once again and popping up on red carpets, TikToks and Instagrams.
But why bother getting tendrils? And what should you ask for? We’ve broken it all down below, so you can feel confident the next time you go for a haircut.
What to ask for at the salon
The best part of tendrils is that you don’t have to commit to bangs. All you need are a few strands to frame your face and make your jawline pop. If you’re heading to the salon for your next hair appointment, ask your hairdresser for some long tendrils to frame your face. You could even ask for some layers around your face, so again, you don’t have to commit to a full-on fringe if you don’t want to.
Tendrils are great because you can wear your hair up in a ponytail or updo, or in braids, or down, and those few wispy strands will be there to give your hair some extra oomph.
The beauty of tendrils is no matter if your hair is straight, wavy, curly or coily, they work on every texture and look good on everyone.
