I have thin, fine hair cut in a bob at present. Thinking about a blunt fringe but not sure if thin fine hair can take one. Also have cowslick at front too. Any thoughts? thx

I wouldn't do it myself because of the cowlick unless you have the time to devote to straightening and styling it. that said, I think the shape of your face should be the most important deciding factor. try and work out what shape face you have and ask your hairdresser for opinions on what style fringe would suit best.

I've got a cowlick and have just had a blunt fringe cut in and it's not been a problem to style

however I have v thick hair

I think the challenge with blunt fringes is not to make it kook likea little girl's fringe and I think with fine hair, your fringe would start quite high up and the sides may well end up looking very thin and wispy

I'm hoping my new babyliss big hair will do the job for me. But yes you're right will probably just annoy me, so much easier just to tuck behind ears!

chicken, I was trying for a dawn Porter, but worried it may look very twee. I am 41 now! And it will probably split in the middle and leave me looking like a dorky tryhard.

I've been looking for a mega cheap fake fringe so I can try it at home first.
