Fringes for Autumn

So it seems fringes or 'bangs' are fashionable this Autumn. Anyone planning to switch?

A few examples, it's not just Alexa Ubiquitous Chung and her fringe:

I've had a full fringe my entire life, I just look crap without one with my Neanderthal low forehead hmm
Glad to hear I'll be fashionable again grin

OnTheSherry Sun 08-Oct-17 10:22:38 fringe has pretty much grown out into horrible thick front layers, so I'm contemplating whether to keep growing or chop it again. I'm over a full fringe. It doesn't suit me since I hit 40 and gained weight.

I'm thinking long side fringe but I'd like something a bit up-to-date. Pondering.

I had a fringe when I had quite messy hair. Past few years I've tried to be more groomed but I'm growing my hair again so I was thinking it'd be good to go for a fringe now.

Yes I just had mine cut in. Makes me feel more "done"

LadyWithLapdog Sun 08-Oct-17 10:52:25

How did you get it done, Snipples? How's the rest of your hair?

I do mine myself and like it. Covers less than perfect brows and wrinkles.
It is the only part of my hair I blow dry. Sali hughes has a tutorial on this.

I have mid length hair which is cut in longish layers - usually wear it wavy and I went for a blunt fringe with choppy bits cut in so it looks soft and longer at the edges so I don't look like a choir girl! Kinda like this pic (obvs not me)

LadyWithLapdog Sun 08-Oct-17 14:02:20

That looks nice but quite high maintenance in its simplicity. Mine is just about chin length so a difficult stage to style in any way.

Snipples Sun 08-Oct-17 14:04:49

Could you try something side swept - have you seen a picture of something you like?

Dustbunny1900 Sun 08-Oct-17 17:47:34

I do side bangs , can't do "full fringe" as it gets greasy far too quick.
Long side bangs aren't as big of a commitment for me, they grow out nicely and are easy to pin back ..but they help conceal my humongous dome fivehead and soften/frame my face.

HolgerDanske Sun 08-Oct-17 18:26:22

Oh god please don't call them bangs.

I've got a fringe at the moment. I'm growing it out I think. I'll see what happens.

dudsville Sun 08-Oct-17 18:31:02

I have been contemplating this but 1) worried about what it would look like on a windy day and 2) will it make me look like my child self.

Dustbunny1900 Sun 08-Oct-17 20:14:05

Sorry lol, I'm american, it's what we call them ! grin

HolgerDanske Sun 08-Oct-17 20:19:09

Oh well if you're actually American then of course it's fine!! smile

scrabbler3 Sun 08-Oct-17 20:24:29

I like fringes but I have a widows peak so a fringe looks a mess on me. I love Claudia winkelmans look but know I'm in the minority.

brapbrap Sun 08-Oct-17 20:43:20

A fringe is for life not just for autumn

NeedingSolutions Sun 08-Oct-17 22:39:53

Does anyone else think that once you've got a fringe, it's hard to get rid of? Like if you get too used to it, I mean. Or maybe it's only if you grow up with it?

I KWYM as I see myself as a fringe person despite not having had one for a while.
