5 Struggles Of Having A Fringe

At the beginning of the month, I decided it was time to change up my hair a lil bit. I'd been thinking about getting a full fringe for a while, so i bit the bullet and went for it. I was quite fond of it when I first had it cut, but it definitely has taken its toll and started to irritate me a bit!

01. Your bed hair will be 10x worse 
If you thought your hair looked bad in the morning without a fringe, be prepared for what it'll look like with one. I usually wake up with a middle parting, and one side of my fringe pinging up to one side, its quite funny. 

02. You're gonna have to use heat daily
If you're someone who doesn't like to use heat on your hair, maybe a fringe isn't for you. If I didn't straighten/blow dry my hair it would be an actual birds nest!

03. You'll be constantly touching it to get it out your eyes
To be fair, I do have quite a long fringe and to solve this problem I could just get it cut shorter, but I don't think I'm ready to commit to that just yet. I'm constantly trying to push it out of my eyes, or detaching pieces of hair from my eyelashes, pretty irritating! 

04. Greasy hair is real
Nobody likes greasy hair, but because you're touching it 24/7 to get it out of your eyes, it means your hair produces more oil. Dry shampoo really is your best friend when you have a fringe!

05. There's less versatility 
Having a fringe is great, but I've found you have much less versatility to do what you want with your hair. I tried to do french plaits the other day, and I had to pin my fringe back for it to look 'normal'. Although, space buns with a full fringe is really cute I've found out!

Even though having a fringe can be really irritating at times, I still kinda like it and its something a bit different! And change is always a good thing right?!

  1. It suits you so much! I wish I could get a fringe but curly hair is so unpredictable so I'd rather stay on the safe side and be fringe-less until someone figures out how to do them on curls. The fringe + space buns combo sounds really cute- I wanna seeee ;)

    1. Thank you Dalal - I feel like it'd be more of a struggle if you had curly hair to tame a fringe! I'll try get a photo up of the space buns and fringe haha!

  2. The block fringe suits you so much! Even if you have to use heat everyday, at least you know your hair will always be on point!

  3. I think you look so nice with bangs! I just got some myself and struggle with the same things you do. I never had to use heat everyday, but now I do! Dry shampoo has been my SAVIOR lately, too. xx

  5. I've had a fringe literally my entire life and it's the one thing about my hair that I've never changed. (I've been ever colour and length under the rainbow but fringe is my one constant!)

    I've never used heat on my fringe so it sounds like I have dodged an annoying bullet there!

  9. Omg I had a fringe when I was 15, I loved and hated it. It was cute to wear but I remember having pimples on my forehead because the grease from my fringe went onto my skin. You look lovely with it, enjoy it :)

    You could also tie your hair in a look ponytail and leave a few strands of hair out. ( you don't have to but if your suck with hair ideas have a go)

    Love your blog :) Love Jordyn /junerobin.blogspot.com

  11. Having a fringe is such a love/hate relationship! I love it when it's behaving well (mostly when it's done by someone else, i.e. a hairdresser...) but as I don't like to use a lot of products on my hair or heat, it was impossible to get it to behave. Last time I had one was a about a year ago and I swore I'd never cut it again, but I'm starting to think about taking the plunge again... Help! x

  13. Lucy it suits you so so much!! You definitely will get more used to it and it will 'train' to sit correctly too. People constantly ask me whether I get annoyed with my fringe being in my eyes but honestly I don't even notice it anymore, but yes dry shampoo is definitely my best friend for a fringe!

  14. Ugh I know the pain. I always cut it and then I regret it because it's always on the way or somewhere being messy. But still, it suits be so that's why I cut it sometimes. It suits you too so much! Love it. But it's so much pain.
