    Default Baby Hairs-Love 'em or Hate 'em

    Do any of you have the wispy little hairs along your hairline that only grow about as long as an inch and they are to thin to really do anything with? All of my life I have wished that I had a defined hairline with a widow's peak. I've learned to accept my little hairs, after this great idea I had in high school to shave them off. Let's just say that it didn't work as well as planned, and now I just deal with them. Anybody have any thoughts about them?

    Yes I have these. The bulk of my fringe is an inch passes my chin, but my baby hairs just reach my top lip, they have been this length for months now, annoying aren't they? The ones on my neck are only about 3" long but there quite cute as they are curly!

    I'm probably going to be in the minority here. I love my little baby hairs. For me they soften the way my updos look.

    Mine are long enough to be held back, but I like them out.

    The only way I can get them to stay back in an updo is if I gel them back, and even that rarely works. I usually end up with a cowlick haha

    I have tons of these at all different lengths as they grow in. They're straight and then curve under at the ends so they don't bother me too much as they look smooth and it kind of looks like they've been purposely left out of updos and stuff, anyway.

    I've got baby hairs floofing up all over the place. They're what give me my halo in the sig pic. I'm not crazy about them, but husband says they make me look like an angel (aaahhhhh!)

    After years of trying to adhere the whispies down, we have finally settled into an uneasy truce. I still wish that they laid down neatly, but they no longer bother me.

    I have a lot of them, too which is why I like to put my hair up when it's wet/damp so they're stuck down. I don't use hairspray or gel so doing it this way helps. After a day or so they start to spring out and I look like the crazy cat lady.

    I think I know what you mean... I notice this mostly on African-American women, where it seems that an inch or so of the hairline is really short, like 1/2" to a 1". I really like the way that looks for some reason. My baby hair get several inches long before growing but never long enough to pull back. I like the shorter baby hairs.

    Oh yes, I have always had them. No product can tame it. It's always there like a halo
