    New do =- Fringe benefits?

    Post by Dollyrocker on 1/10/2015, 11:22

    I am finally getting my barnet done tomorrow, it's been a REALLY long time and has got long and straggly and the highlights look dreadful Paperbag

    I'm thinking about getting a long graduated bob and...

    a fringe eek

    It's been a really long time since I had a fringe (30 years give or take) and I'm wondering how much extra hassle it's going to be, I don't want it to be toio long as previously when I've had a sport of side fringe it's annoyed the crap out of me when it gets in my eyes so I'm thinking this kind of length and this is also the sort of cut I want



    Thoughts? My hair is much finer than the model's so i'm not sure if it will work

    Colourwise I'm not sure what will bepossible as I only booked in for a half head of highlights so I'm not sure time-wise what can be done but I'd really like some sort of light ash brown colour, these 2 are on my lust list but I'll probably just end up with whjat I had last time roll eyes



    On the right

    Ooh, fringes are great fun Dolly. If you hair is a bit on the thinner side you can use dry shampoo on it to give it a similar texture to the first picture (I'm a slattern so swear by dry shampoo!).

    I love the bottom right colour, it's gorgeous.

    That style in the first picture looks great, I think it would really suit you!
    No idea if it would work with your hair type as I spend all my life trying to get the volume out of mine lol Can your hairdresser advise you?
    For colour I like the bottom right one too.

    I love fringes on other people!

    I had one for years and thought I looked OK, but when I look back of photos from that era, then I really did NOT!

    Also, my hair frizzes and goes wavy when the atmosphere is damp/foggy/rainy and so my fringe would then spring out each side giving the glamorous effect of bull's-horns!!!
    I got so fed up that I grew it out in the end and have never had one again!

    I think that kind of heavy, thick fringe in the photo only suit a certain type of face and, if I can be honest, I think that your face might be a little too small and pixey-like to carry that off.
    Your hairdresser should be able to advise you though.
    Having said all that, I do love the colour of the bottom right!

    I love that cut Dolly! Being a curly girl I have no idea about what works on straight hair but I hope it works for you as it's lovely! Also loving the bottom right colour nod

    I know what you mean Pogs, I definitely wouldn't get the look of the red pic, my hair is just not that thick but I think I could get a sleek version which might not be too over the top for my face


    I'll ask my hairdresser what she thinks, watch this space!

    Looking forward to seeing the new look, Dolly.

    I have had the same 'do' for about a million years. I am dreading the time when I become too old for long hair. I honestly don't know what I will do!

    Love the first one but boy would it be hard work!!!
    I actually (actually) think the bottom right hand would look fab on you and it's fine hair, although it would take work.
    Fringes are great just ask the stylist which would suit you Dolly.
    Pogs I've had all mine cut off since I have declared myself old unhappy

    eek - you really are *not* old!
    I am hoping to keep it long well into my 50's if I can get away with it.
    The second I think I look 'witchy' then I think I will go for a long bob to start with.

    What have you gone for Willis?

    I know I'm not that old but the day I had it done I felt really old Embarassed hence the chop.
    I've got a long'ish bob lol
    Silly because I know plenty of woman in their 50/60's with longer hair and they look beautiful.
    I'm going out tonight (waiting for make-up lady to arrive) first time in nearly a year I've been out on an evening (except holidays) so will see how I'm feeling to if I allow my photo to be taken gerrin
