#FaceFriday :: Fringe Benefits

Last Monday, I left you hanging with what seems like a new ‘do to moi. It’s funny because when Hub was emptying the trash bin he asked me in quite a panicky manner “babe did you cut your hair”? Ha! the sight of long chunks of hair was obviously a kryptonite to him (you know… guys and long hair, such a big deal!).

But see long before I met this handsome man, I’ve been sporting really short hair, that pixie-kinda hairstyle for the most part of my 20s up to early 30s. But I love my long mane now and seriously, I don’t have gazillion guts to chop it. So to those of you who thought I did something drastic to my hair or guessed it was wig…Nope! My hair is still the same length (past bra line) but I had fringe! I used scissors and thinning shears to give texture and layers to my bangs and sides. You read it right, I did it myself.

    Love your hair with bangs! I had them for a while and I loved them but they were just SO high maintenance for me that I had to grow them out!

      I feel you regarding maintenance that's why I have to learn how to do my own

    I love your bangs! I always have bangs but I can't stand how they feel on me when they get below my brows so I'm always snipping away at them but doing a straight retro line. Yours look so soft and sexy!

      Try using thinning shears so they're not totally straight.
