It's weird the little things that make you, well you...
Every month I am going to try to do a bit of a 'get to know you' post with any wierd or wonderful topic that I have decided upon. Last month, I started off this series with 'My Bookshelf', which you can read here, if your interested that is, otherwise, just don't click on the link and you will never see what a wonderful collection of books I have, but then again I'm biased.
Anywho, this month I have picked 'The Fringe'. Right, I know that hair is important to everybody, it plays such a massive part in how we present ourselves and for some makes up a little part of who we are. For me, I don't define myself by my hair, I am quite happy to chop and change it however I feel like. I'm certainly not the type of person who has lovely long flowing locks who couldn't possibly dream of cutting them off. However, even though I am quite happy to get scissor happy at the drop of a hat, there is one piece of me that has always been there... the fringe.
Now for most people having a fringe cut in is quite a big step, but for me, it's the other way round, growing it our actually scares the sh*t out of me, I feel weird and exposed without it. It's been with me for the last twenty seven years, of course I'm going to feel somewhat attached to it! Although it gets cut, grown over to the side, cute again, cut shorter, grown long and sweeping over my face, the fact remains that it is always there.
So yes, like I said, it's been there the last twenty seven years. You know those little toddlers you see that look so cute with their great big huge fringes that their mammy cut in, well I was one of those, except the difference in my case is that I still am. Well technically not a toddler, but I still have the big fringe.
Right now I'm at a weird point with my hair, I've reached a weird kind of phase where I'm bored of having a fringe but scared to grow it out, I'm worried that people will look at me and think, 'christ, what the hell has she done to her hair'. I'm trying to consider exactly what I want done, trying to limit the thoughts of 'oh my god, why god why' after emerging from the hairdressers. If you have any ideas of what hairstyles you think would suit me then please leave a comment below... I will entertain most ideas, however, just so you know, skinhead is not an option.
So thats it really, me, my fringe and I. Let me know if you too are long term fringer, I'd love to know I'm not the only one out there!
