So, I Got A Fringe

{ Channelling that PLL-season-six-part-two Spencer Hastings vibe. }
 
I got my hair cut! Finally. I'd been meaning to get it done a little while ago (try six months) but I wasn't quite sure what I wanted done and with my mental health blip, my hair was the last thing on my mind. My side fringe had grown out and the length was getting a little too much for me to handle (I managed to get ketchup in it at Ikea the other day because I couldn't keep control of it) so last week, after scrolling Pinterest for hours and debating with my friend on Facebook messenger, I finally plucked up the courage to book an appointment with a local mobile hairdresser.

{ T H E C U T & C O L O U R }

I didn't get much cut off the length, just a little trim to keep it healthy, but I did get a fringe cut in! I was really specific about the kind of fringe I wanted because I didn't want to flashback to when I was little and rocked a full-on, heavy block fringe for about five years. I went for a thin-ish, 'casual', messy fringe that falls just to my eyebrow and I love it! I'm still messing about with my parting and the amount of volume I can infuse into the rest of my hair before I look like Russell Brand but I'm feeling super swish and refreshed. I dyed it a few shades darker to match my roots and then the hairdresser attempted to add some lighter tones to my hair (hence why I was in foils on Snapchat) but they didn't take as well as we'd have liked, so she's coming back next week to try again!

  7. I had a fringe for the first 13 years of my life, and of course those days were cringe-worthy, so I have some kind of negative stigma against fringes on myself. Lately though, I've been seeing them as more sophisticated on other people, like yourself, and I wonder whether one day I might just go back.

    1. Thank you! I know exactly how you feel - I can't remember not having a fringe under the age of 10! This fringe is a lot thinner and messier than how I used to have it, though, so I feel a lot more grown up this time round! X
