Fringe Benefits

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you guys how much of a pain it is growing out your fringe. 

I attempted it for about 4 months a few years ago, but the subsequent curtain of hair which seemed perpetually at eyeball level eventually wore me down and I cut it again. This time, I actually hadn’t planned on growing it out, I was just going to change it to a deep side parting. But as time went on I realised I was cultivating a rather impressive middle parting, which is in keeping with my current 70’s biker gal vibe. 

However, it’s still at that tricky length where I am easily blinded by stray thick hair, so the scarf has become my best friend. Tied at the front, it makes me looks a bit like a cleaner from 1955, but it’s serving a functional purpose which is to keep my fringe away from my face and out of my eyeballs, with the help of butterfly clips.

However, even with my various ways of coping with my growing-out fringe, there is not a day goes by where I don't want to cut it all off. I'm not even sure I'll suit not having a fringe. Perhaps a fringe is little more flattering against a 42 year old face, but It's hard to know until I do it I suppose. Hopefully I'll find out in about 3 months if I can keep away from the scissors...
