Would I suit a fringe?

Hey there,

I don't know about you but every summer I get the urge to do something with my hair. I think it is because as I work in education, I get 6 weeks to play with and it is during that time that I tend to touch up the hair dye and make my hair all pretty again.

As I recently re dyed my hair for the wedding, I shouldn't have to sort it again for a few months so the other thing I'm currently thinking of doing is a fringe.

I am currently trying to grow my hair long as I love the idea of below boob (that's the technical term) length hair. I used to have longish hair and I want to get back to that place. Whilst on pinterest, otherwise known as the website of dreams, I was looking at hairstyles like you do when something inside me began falling in love with the styles that had a fringe to them.

About a year or two ago, I used to have a little bit of a side fringe, which I loved to have but out of laziness I let it grow out and now it's pretty much disappeared. Now I kind of want a fringe back. I like the look of the full fringe like the bottom left or a bit like the Anne Hathaway in Devil Wears Prada hair, where she has the fringe and then slightly longer pieces to frame the face.

But here's the thing, I don't know if I have the face for a full fringe. I am worried that as my face is a little chubby that putting a fringe on it would make it look silly or that I'd look babyish. The reason I say babyish is because the last time I had a "proper fringe" was when I was around 10 years old and looking back at those pictures makes me cringe.

So I am asking for your opinions, do you think I could get away with a full fringe like the pictures in this post? Should I try another side fringe? What do you think?

Lots of Love,


  1. i'm just the same, really want a fringe but think i will look about 10 again!

  2. I think it would suit your face! You can always try it and if you don't like it you can grow your hair back. If you don't try, you won't know :)

  4. I recently just got a full fringe on a whim and ended up loving it! I think you should just go for it. Its only hair, it grows back and then you'll know whether to venture to the fringe side again or not.

  5. I would say yes, when i say this i dont mean to sound offensive but if you want your face to look smaller you can get a fringe cut in as it will cover your forehead plus i love a good fring haha
    I think youd look good with a more point cut defused fringe rather than a blunt fringe

  6. Yes! I think it would look fab and flatter your face much more. But you do realise you I'll have to straighten it due to your hair texture. It won't look good if you leave it in your natural state. Hope that's not offensive if you get me just it will need to be straightened so it's up to you if you can commit to that maintenance :) xo

  7. Oh yes! Go for it, would look awesome on you x

    and beauty or something.

  8. Whilst I don't recommend them as a wearable product... Buying a Clip in fringe gives you <£10 trial run before going for a £50> chop and two years of hair re growth ;) but yes, I think a soft side fringe is flattering on most people xxx

  9. Yes, I definitely think you would! xx
