To Fringe or Not to Fringe, that is the question. One that has been playing on my mind for – ooh – the last ten minutes. I’m at that stage of hair-boredom that’s actually quite dangerous – I could well do something silly, like have it all cut off or died an unflattering shade of mauve. Actually, colour-wise, I’m perfectly happy. John my colourist always keeps it looking fresh and sprightly, so it’s only really the cut – the “shape” that I’m bored with.
I feel as though I want to cut in a long fringe and be a bit rock ‘n roll. What do you think? Modelling-wise, a fringe isn’t ideal – it’s difficult to sweep away if the client wants a clean look to the face. Which is often, especially on beauty shoots. A fringe quite dramatically changes the look of your face, in a way, and I suppose that for beauty shoots it’s nice to see bone structure and all of that business. But I’m feeling so rebellious!
What do you think? Give me your opinions, please: fringe or no? I have included some images for your perusal. I could, of course, go for some kind of long, sweeping fringe and cut a few inches from the length – that would refresh it and I suppose lend it some kind of shape… But do we like long and luscious, or would something shorter and more stylish be a funky change?
Please bear in mind, before you comment, that I HATE high-maintenance hair. I am prepared to spend a maximum of fifteen minutes on styling it – and that’s from wet. Unless it’s a very special occasion, in which case it gives me a small nervous breakdown as I faff with rollers and burn welts into my neck with tongs.
I have included some really quite random photos so that you can see the difference between Ruth Fringe and Ruth No Fringe, but the ultimate comparison is probably in my post entitled When is your hair not your hair. Have a read, then come back and tell me your advices, dear people.
