A fringe (or bangs).


A fringe (or bangs in the United Statesmarker and Canadamarker) is a shaped cutting of the front part of the hair so that it is combed forward and hangs or curls over the forehead. A classic fringe is cut fairly straight at or above the eyebrows, but fringes can also be ragged or ruffled, spiked up with hair gel, swept to one side or the other, and sometimes they are cut longer to partially cover the eyes.

Terminology

The term fringe refers to the resemblance of the short row of hair to ornamental fringe trim, such as that often found on shawls.

The term bangs is widely used in North America but is not widely recognized elsewhere. It originally referred to hair cut bang-off (straight across at the front), although the term is now applied to diverse forms of fringe. It is probably related to bang-tail, a term still used for the practice of cutting horses' tails straight across.

There are other terms such as patch, which connotes the coloring of overlying bangs.
