The time has come to say goodbye to your fringe. You want to let it grow out. But to keep your hair looking good and stop it from obstructing your vision, think creativity and patience while you wait for it to blend in with the rest of your hair again.
Hair grows on average about a centimetre and a half every month. This means that it takes about a year for you to be able to slip your fringe behind your ear. So for the next few months, remember that patience is a virtue! “This stage is always a little tricky as you can’t simply let your fringe grow out. Full and straight, it will keep on falling into your eyes. Not the most practical of situations...”
Eventually you’re going to need to give it some shape and train it to fall to one side. “This will stop you from having to cut it on both sides. Cut it so that it falls naturally to the side of your choice.” The last thing you want is for it to look like it has a mind of its own. Visit your hairdresser so that he or she can tidy it up for you. He or she will add layers to give it some shape and stop it from hiding your lovely eyes, and of course stopping you from being able to see.
Once you’re fringe has been redefined you’ll be able to position it easily either to the side or with a hair slide. “To hide it, slide your fringe under, secure with a slide and place the rest of your hair over it.” Another solution is pulling it back like a quiff to reveal your forehead. “Twist your fringe and pull it backwards. Make sure you shape it so that it has as much volume as possible. This will make waiting more stylish!” Stop wearing your fringe in a quiff once it has grown long enough and become too heavy.
Finally, there should be no expenses spared when it comes to hair accessories. Hair slides, grips, combs, headbands, hair bands... Your choice of weapons is endless! “For a sixties style, choose a thick hair band and use it to smooth your hair backwards. Also, why not try the retro hair comb, worn to the side? This will glamorously hold your fringe in place.”
: Visit your hairdresser regularly to have your fringe shaped. Having it trimmed regularly will help it to grow and make your everyday life easier!
