How To Blend Existing Fringe with a One-Length Haircut

Learning how to seamlessly blend an existing fringe with a one-length haircut can elevate your game to a whole new level.

Say goodbye to harsh lines and hello to a harmonious hairstyle that effortlessly exudes style and sophistication, while you blend the fringe with a one-length hair.

It seems everyone with longer hair wants a big bouncy blowout à la J. Lo. Sam Villa, Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Sam Villa and Global Artistic Ambassador for Redken, shares an easy way to blend existing fringe with one-length hair that can be styled with mega bounce and playful volume.  See here.


  • Apply Redken One Unite as a cutting lotion so shears glide smoothly over hair. 
  • With horizontal finger positioning, angle Sam Villa Artist Series 6” Slide Cutting Shears and allow hand to push shear down the fringe, into the longer hair and to the ends.  This will connect fringe to the sides with a soft continuous edge. 


  • Use a Sam Villa Signature Series Thermal Round Brush 2” (has to be a thermal brush to heat hair for maximum volume) to blow dry hair away from the face.  While drying, twist the brush and hair while working towards the perimeter and allow the texture to cool and set.  
  • Once cool, use a styling brush or fingers to pump up the volume.  A soft hold spray can also be used for support.

“This technique blends the fringe into the sides and creates soft, beautiful, face framing layers that really come to life when dried with a thermal brush,” says Villa.
