Noooooooooooooooo don't do it.

Many times I've cut my own fringe and I looked like either a toddler who's mum put a bowl on their head, or having wet cut it found that it's sprung up 3cm when dry and looks awful. But then I am a cackhanded moron.

Get it cut properly!

Don't do it.
Even if you like it tonight I guarantee that you will catch sight of yourself within the next 3-4 days and think WTF did I do that for.
Step away from the scissors. Paint your nails or something Instead.

seems like SUCH a good idea though! what can possibly go wrong. it’s definitely going to look exactly like this even my bum and underwear grin

I have done it a couple of times. Looked fab. Happy with it for a few months... miserable to grow out though

Only if you post before and after photos!

I’ve bought one of the fringe cutting contraptions and professional scissors. It still looked crap. Fringes cost a tenner or so to cut in, get it done properly especially if you’re getting a full heavy fringe like the photo.

i mainly want a fringe to cover up my forehead wrinkles (as I cannot afford botox!) but i am slightly concerned about it pointing a big arrow at my nose which is my most hated feature

My mum cut my fringe once and I have a big nose. It made my eyes look bigger too so it sort of evened out. Fringes make you look younger.

i’ve got flea’s eyes so that sounds GREAT!

Your hair is gorgeous as is OP envy and there’s nothing wrong with your forehead
