    The word for that in English is not "fringe." At least not in the United States, I won't speak for other countries, but here that would not make any sense. The correct word is "bangs."

    Now a question about the Spanish word for bangs--I have only heard the word "capul" on a Colombian novela. Is that word used commonly or is "flequilla" the more common word?

    Hi
    I hadn't heard the word "capul" before, but in Spain the word we use is flequillo.

    Flequillo -> fringe (rugs)
    Flequillo / capul (Colombia) -> bangs (hair)

    Capul is fringe in British English and it means the same as bangs in American English.
