The Fringe Debate – Part 1

Earlier this year, you guys helped me out by getting involved with updating my look on glasses.  Loving what I purchased, I think your help with my new styling choice is just what I need!

I’ve been debating for some time now on whether to have, wait for it…..a FRINGE.

Now for some of you reading this your probably thinking, well what’s the big deal, but when you have fine, flyaway hair like mine…a fringe may or may not work.

So where am I getting my inspiration…Celebs of course!  What I like about the images I have chosen below, is that they have the deep V fringe, rather than the straight looking fringe which is what I normally opt.  I want something different this time, and I’m thinking the deep V will allow me to wear my hair more natural rather than having to straighten it daily.

What do you think so far?

Now do fringes mix with glasses, particularly as mine are quite big….well take a look at these pics and see what you think:

I would love to know your initial thoughts on the deep V fringe for me, so either leave a comment on my blog or tweet me @lovedbylizzi.

A reminder of what I look like if you are not reading this on the blog site!

    I love fringes! I think they look great and, if your hair dries fairly straight/wavy, don't too require much effort! 🙂

    OK i think totally go for it.ive had my thick blunt fringe for a year now and still love it. I like the look of them with the "v" style, that looks easier and low maintenance as mine as a thick blunt fringe can be higher maintenance. If you wash your hair every day it wont be a problem. But if like me you wash your hair every few days you will still have to probably wash your fringe in the morning to freshen it up. Also i think it looks great with glasses as long as its not tooo long, then it goes over the glasses and can look a bit weird. But likw thwle above peraon said, if your hairs pretty easy to style then go for it. Fringes always grow so fast anyway so i say go for it!!! Hope that helped!! Xx

    Hi Liz,I would say go for it, I think fringes are a great way to freshen up your look, and once you've got the urge it's really hard to resist!I alternate from a fringe to not having one, and whenever I see somebody with one when I haven't got one I think "that's my hair". I just feel like I identify myself with a fringe. I also think it gives more of a rock-y sexy vibe to clothing and hair and make up.In terms of greasiness, I wash my hair every day, and I find by the end of the day it can be a bit lank, but I think it would be anyway. I think the most important thing in terms of limpness/greasiness is to make sure you get it trimmed regularly. I trim mine myself in between cuts, which is fine, but your fringe can go a bit thin, and you need to keep having it cut in thicker to make sure it doesn't go straggly.I think from your photos a fringe like the ones you've collected pics of would look great.
