View Full Version : I did it! New fringe!

September 23rd, 2010, 07:07 AM
I have been wanting to spice up my look some, and add some fringe, but the last time I did I cut way too much and it looked unnatural. So, I gathered up my courage and my scissors and attempted it again (after watching some instructional videos). I am quite pleased with the results. It covers up the extra long forehead. Have a look, feel free to tell me what you think...

Is it wet in the second picture? It looks wet.
You have beautiful eyes.

Well done, it looks great!

September 23rd, 2010, 07:51 AM
It looks so stylish! I love it on you :)

September 23rd, 2010, 07:53 AM
You did a great job self trimming! It looks good!

September 23rd, 2010, 07:57 AM
It looks very lovely! :)

September 23rd, 2010, 09:05 AM
It looks very good :)

September 23rd, 2010, 09:06 AM
Nice change; enjoy it.

September 23rd, 2010, 09:07 AM
Nice job! It looks very fancy on you :D

September 23rd, 2010, 09:25 AM
love it - it looks good

September 23rd, 2010, 09:44 AM
It looks great! I think it really softens your face! It looks like a professional job, too!:)

September 23rd, 2010, 09:51 AM
Nice job! It brings the focus down to your stunning blue eyes!
If I may ask, is that your natural color? I ask because the darker shade of the wet hair in the second pic really suits your skin tone and again, those beautiful eyes.
Not that the color is bad in the first one!!! (attempts to remove foot from mouth) :o

Bangs look very nice on you. Well done.

September 23rd, 2010, 10:10 AM
Very nice bangs! I love the way they turned out :)

September 23rd, 2010, 10:27 AM
Thanks! It is wet in the second picture. And trillcat, The top half of my hair is my natural untouched color (the bangs are virgin) and the lower half of my hair is an old (shade or 2 lighter) dye job, with henna and hendigo over that. I am trying to grow all of the color out and be a natural brunette. I think you are right, the more blue-toned brown suits my coloring better than the henna.

You did a great job; it looks wonderful. Makes your blue eyes 'pop' even more. :)

September 23rd, 2010, 11:56 AM
I think it looks lovely and I agree it brings the focus to you blue eyes!

September 23rd, 2010, 12:01 PM
Great job on the bangs!

September 23rd, 2010, 12:08 PM

Lovely and soft and flattering. Well done!

September 24th, 2010, 03:20 AM
You did a very good job. The fringe looks beautiful:).

September 24th, 2010, 03:24 AM
Woah, stylish. ;) Makes you look younger and spunkeh! :D

Great job too!

September 24th, 2010, 05:49 AM
Makes you look younger. You are brave to try it!

September 24th, 2010, 05:53 AM
Oh wow so cute!

September 24th, 2010, 06:54 AM
I like it both ways, you are lucky that you can have bangs or no bangs and they both look very nice on you. What a fun change !! I am glad you tried it again, you did a very good job cutting them :)

September 24th, 2010, 08:00 AM
I love it! Makes me want to get bangs again! LOL

September 24th, 2010, 08:02 AM

September 24th, 2010, 08:43 AM
Looks great on you. Have fun!:)

September 24th, 2010, 08:52 AM
great job! looks really gorgeous and more stylish with the fringe I REALLY think you suit it heaps!

September 24th, 2010, 01:18 PM
You was born to have it! Awesome! :)

September 24th, 2010, 01:37 PM
It looks very nice on you :)

September 24th, 2010, 02:04 PM
yes! This is exactly what I want! Well done you! Which instructional videos did you watch? I think I might try this as well (if you don't mind)! I just bought myself a pair of scissors yesterday to S&D...so maybe I'll have the courage soon.

It looks cute but also 'age appropriate'. I don't know your age, but the style of your fringe looks like an Adult haircut, apposed to child-like fringe I see on a lot of ladies that looks out of place. I like it a lot, congrats!

September 25th, 2010, 07:34 AM
Wow, thanks you guys. I am still enjoying them a lot. I like that it makes me look less severe. I appreciate all the lovely comments.

September 26th, 2010, 06:50 PM
You look great, I just grew out my bangs, at first I missed them and now I think I will never (well maybe never is too absloute) but I will likely not go back! hahaha LOL
