I’ve been growing my fringe out for a few months now. Not after any massive decision to commit to no fringe I must say, I just fancied a change. I thought I’d see how I felt.
For years, I’ve had a full fringe….my husband likes it a lot and I always have too. The last time I attempted to grow it out was before my wedding…I felt like I shouldn’t have a fringe for my wedding day, it wasn’t ‘traditional’. Then realised that I’m not a very traditional type of gal, so had it put back in.
My problem is that I’m just really not sure at the moment if I prefer my look with or without a fringe. I veer to the extremes of both within minutes of each other…”no, I look younger with a fringe!” to “my fringe was super annoying and I like the change”
Fringes ARE a hassle. They are a pain in the arse. Mine parts awkwardly and I have to style it carefully……but I do love it.
So, let’s compare:
I’ve mostly stuck to a full fringe previously. I don’t handle anything that comes below the top of my eyes well.
Here’s me with Bee and Lizzy when my bob was a bit shorter…
I think I liked it a lot when it was a short bob with a full blunt fringe.
Having a fringe can work if I want it curly too:
…and I should also remember that I can sweep the fringe to the side if I want to…
…and even when it’s curly…
It can be very versatile. I don’t always have to have it down, but when I do have it down I love it.
When I get it right without my fringe, I do REALLY like it. This is a recent pic:
This one (also recent) is where it’s behaving perfectly…
However, it’s the same with my fringe. Sometimes it behaves, sometimes it doesn’t.
Here’s without fringe and curly….
..and over to the side:
So, what do you guys think?
I think I *might* have talked myself into keeping no fringe… I’m thinking maybe it’s the overall length I’m getting annoyed with and I just need a centimetre or two off…..
…OR, do I want my full fringe back and a much shorter bob? I loved that… HELP!
What do you think?
