A few weeks ago on Instagram, Canadian-born Jamaican model Winnie, 27, showed off a bob with bangs – no different from the look of pop queen Beyonce.

LEE SAYS: Sometimes the heart has a larger forehead. Short fringed hair is great at balancing these out – the shorter the better, as it reduces the length of a longer face. This shape can easily eliminate the stiffer, straighter, polished look. I love Winnie’s style with fringe hair.

'This shape can easily get rid of the stiffer, straighter, polished look,' says Lee.
