Trying to grow out a fringe?!
I seem to do this every winter....
I get bored of my hair and decide getting a fringe would be a FANTASTIC idea, although in reality it really isn't. Fringes are not only a nightmare to style everyday, they need constant trimming and when you are trying to grow them out you look like a complete idiot....Well...At least I do.
I'm becoming a bit of a pro at hiding the fact I have a fringe that is just that little bit too long as I've done it three winters on the trot I think now. So for any of you trying to grow out a nightmare fringe I have put together a few of my favorite hairstyles that actually look great when it is at that inbetweeny stage.
Here are some of my most worn hair styles.
So first of all we have the side fringe, as it gets longer it looks better. I have simply just pulled all my hair at the front to the side, I've pulled in some longer bits to add the illusion of length.
This is the put up with it and look through the gaps look. Gives me a headache but some days you really just can't be bothered.
Curtains . Not as uncool as they used to be. It definatley needs a bit of hairspray to hold the fringe pieces apart because obviously by now my hair is trained to fall straight down and not parted. This is my favorite way to wear my hair.
The plait. If your fringe is still too short to do this cheat and use a strip of hair extensions. Just plait to the bottom, place by your temples, pin in and let your hair fall over either side to hide. You can see where one of my clips is in this picture to give you more of an idea.
The twist. Literally takes two seconds to pull back, twist and pin. I have so much baby hair that it just ruins this look for me.
This is by far the easiest, just comb your fringe back and pin. Simple. My girl crush Cheryl Cole has her styled like this in the new L'oreal Ad so what is there not to like??
Are there any other styles you lovely lot like when growing out a fringe? I'd love to hear your ideas and tips as I'm going crazy with the thing right now! And sorry if I've thrown in a couple of duck face poses in there! mm sexy.
Lots of Love
