Fringe Benefits

celebrity_fringesSo today I’m going to use Puff for personal gain.

What do I usually use it for I hear you ask? Good question. Usually to vent and/or to get an opinion out there. But today it’s all about me, myself and I. So just not my opinion, but me. Aren’t you lucky! And actually, I’m essentially after YOUR opinion!

Ok, enough fluffing around here’s my predicament. For the past 9 months I have been growing my hair like most bride’s tend to do. You can tell this is going to be serious, World Peace kinda stuff now can’t you!

So here I am with long hair, and no longer a bride but now a wife. I inherited a gene from my mum (I swear it’s hereditary) where I tend to change my hair often. And when I say change I mean short black bob from long blonde curls. I was unfortunately ‘blessed’ with curly / wavy/ frizzy hair which on the upside is pretty easy to straighten.

Anyway. So. I’ve become accustomed to once again having long hair after chopping it April last year, but now that the wedding has been and gone I find the little hair fairy in my head chirping, “I’m bored with my hair, let’s do something different next time”. So, next time would be Tuesday 27th October and my question is this….

To get a fringe or not get a fringe?! BIG decision I know! Like I said I’m quite used the long locks at the moment, and don’t have any plans to become a brunette again just yet, so this is the next best thing to a ‘change’ me thinks.


So what do you think? And wouldn’t it be nice if looking like Heidi or Reese came along with the new do too!

    Ami – I went thru this same predicament before my last haircut. Get a fringe? Or not? In the end, I didn’t, because Hubby wasn’t convinced on it, and neither was I, so I took the safe option! But I STILL think sometimes that a fringe might be good. A few friends have had one cut in recently, and they look younger, hipper. But then, you’re obviously not as old as what I am, so you don’t have to worry about that! Looking at your photo, I think it could look very nice on you. Speak to your hairstylist and see if they have any photos of someone with a similar face shape etc so you can get a better idea. At the end of the day, it’ll grow back if you don’t like it!! Good luck, and an updated photo after it’s done would be appreciated!

    Thanks Jodie. The last time I had a fringe I had black hair, and it was too heavy for my relatively pale skin! Will definitely have a chat with my hairdresser who is also a good friend and will definitely tell me the truth whether it would look good or not! Stay tuned for the pic next week!!

    I actually think it would look good on you with blonde hair. Although, you could sit on the fence and get a ‘long’ fringe – still a fringe but you need to brush it aside a little – See how you like that, then chop the rest off if you want to.

    Everytime you get a fringe cut you grow it out, but you are lucky that both suit you and it doesn’t take long to grow out if you decide on a fringe. Looking forward to seeing the outcome on the 27th. Kylie has great ideas.

    I used to change my hair all the time… new colour, new style, long, short… I too have wavy/curly/frizzy hair, and have been wearing it straight for a few months, but bored now. I’d go with Clo’s suggestion, and get a long fringe, then go the big chop later. Looking forward to seeing what happens next week!
