The return of the fringe

I was looking through some old photos of myself and it seems that the fringe has been a love hate relationship.

However I wanted to look at the ones of me with longer hair with one so I can decide what I’m going to do with my mop once it gets to that length.

So this is 2008 and I think that a boyfriend I was with at the time saw a old pic of me with a fringe and said I looked ‘hot’ with one so I went and got one, safe to say when he dumped me I pinned it back and grew it out šŸ™ˆ

This next one was 2014. I had grown my bob that was blonde to above my shoulders and thought I’d dye it brown and bring back the fringe. I think in this pic I look younger than I did in the first. I think I got fed up of getting it trimmed and it went…again.

This is me today 2019 for future readers. This is a Ā£20 amazon wig. I’m actually really digging it. It’s very close to natural colour so I can dream of when it’s this length. I may brave it and wear it out, well my theory is its gonna keep my ears warm in the winter.

Have you had any hairstyles that just keep creeping back in?

I’m in two minds

In November of last year I donated my hair to the Little Princess Trust it was this colour, this long but straight.
If you ever want a big chop this is definitely something to consider.


Now I have this hair cut


There’s no denying that it’s easier this length to manage but do I keep it like this or grow it again?

Your input is gratefully received šŸ˜˜

Stand out in the crowd

It’s boring being normal, I haven’t ever wanted to fit in… OK at school I did, didn’t we all though.

I don’t want to be a sheep and follow whatever trend is in fashion this spring /summer. Having exactly the same outfit on as someone else around your neck of the woods doesn’t scream individuality. I mean if you want to then that’s up to you, but me personally I like to be totally unique.

Here below you can see I’m not your average norm.

I cut my hair off and donated it to the little princess trust and its going to take forever to grow and colour won’t stay in at the mo cos of my health so I got these 3 wigs on amazon.

I don’t even mind that people will probably be able to tell its not my hair.

It’s all about being your own person and that’s what I’m doing šŸ˜Š

Please don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone.

You may surprise yourself.

So this happened today

I have been growing my hair for the last 2 years and got it the longest its been since i was about 12.

I had a throwback photo come up on my facebook memories a couple weeks ago and it was me with super short hair. I saved the pic to my phone and went back to it a few times to admire it. It really did used to suit me. Could i pull it off again?

My hair today went from this length…

Then put in pigtails and snipped off.

A whole ten inches. I have decided to donate it to the little princess trust to help them to make a wig for children with cancer. It’s such a worthy cause.

Here’s my new hair do courtesy of my sister – who also happens to be a hairdresser.

It’s one thing i can add to my random act of kindness list šŸ’•

What’s a random act of kindness you’ve done?

Hair transformation – Before and after

Today I thought I would take you on a hair journey…

This is from DecemberĀ last year where I couldn’t tie my hair up and the highlights were kind of ombre

Then I remember letting my hair colour grow out and in April/May time I treated myself to some highlights and I could actually wear my hair in a tiny ponytail. I did like it blonde for the summer, gives it that sunkissed look

Then I became ill over the summer and didn’t do anything to it apart from wash it and when it got long enough I was able to plait it which is always a hair goal in itself.

Once I got home from the hospital in the middle of November I picked up a box of hair dye from boots and because they didn’t have the colour I was after I just got a semi that was meant to be amber and came out quite brown and after about 6-7 washes was fading quite a bit.

Its now a few weeks before ChristmasĀ and I decided to brave it with the colour that I originally wanted to do it…

I ordered it on Boots.com apparently our local store is too small to stock all colours so bear that in mind if you don’t see the colour you want.

I am just keeping my fingers crossed it stays this colour

Loreal Preference – Brooklyn Copper Auburn just in case you were wondering.

Til next time….
