...but I have curly hair. It's about shoulder length right now.
I normally wear it curly as it's easier, I'm going to wash it in a minute and see if I can 'stretch' it into waves. I can't be dealing with straight fringe and curls, or straightening every day, but I really really want one!
i had one a few years ago, and it only looked nice if i straightened my WHOLE hair, which considering my hair in its natural state is mega curly like i have had an electric shock was no mean feat and probably damaging to be torturing it all the time with GHDs
There seems to be a massive reluctance by hairdressers to do anything other than straighten my hair and add a few side wisps, even when I specifically asked for a style that I don't have to straighten and one with a fringe.
If you find a photo of the look you want, please post it here!
I know there is a collective horror in the hair world of 'mall fringes' but are they really so bad if they are not artificially straightened?
I have found a few pics on Google images, I'll link to them.
The look I DON'T want, but can only picture in my head this Sorry to whoever this person is, I just really don't like it.
I DO like this and this. This one is pretty too, my hair is about that curly but shorter.
I had my hair cut in August, and it looks nice now it has grown out a bit, but I went to Toni & Guy - on recommendation! - and she hacked loads of it off so it's uneven where she 'thinned' it. The shape is good admittedly, but my regular hairdresser doesn't do that and the shape is nice.
I like that Blame but to be honest my hair is much much curlier than that. I'm not sure I could pull it off on a daily basis without actually tonging my hair into soft waves which would take hours and not hold up in inclement weather.
My hair has got much much curlier since I cut it and stopped using heat so much, don't really want to start doing that but I am just gagging for something a bit different. When I wash my hair in a bit (of course DH has just decided to do stuff in the bathroom ) I'm going to try and dry it a bit differently and see if I can loosen the curl a bit.
So Beau did you get a fringe?? I'm thinking of getting one too. I do it every couple of years then grow it out. I start off loving it, but wear it up in a bun with just the fringe out (too lazy to style the rest), but then miss my curls and grow out the fringe.
2 years later (now) I repeat the whole process! I'm poised with the scissors...
