On the fringe

Not much of a post, really. Just a small gripe. Why must I have such a huge forehead? It practically requires me to have a fringe to hide its dominance. And regular trims (which I often do myself, and despite my best efforts, I always clog up the drain). And sometimes, it simply refuses to behave. Witness some of its many incarnations, particularly its stringier, untameable ones in the bottom row:

Are you a fringe person? What the hell do you do on bad hair days? (Please don’t say hats – they NEVER work on me and I hate the feel of things on my head)

    I don’t think your forehead is big at all! And it looks like you look great with OR without bangs, fringy or side-swept or not. I’m actually quite jealous!

    I finally got the courage to cut blunt bangs a few years ago, it was great while it was freshly cut, and before it grew out. It gave me this dollish look that I liked. But once it started to grow out it was pretty annoying. It was either too fluffy, would obscure my view, or too oily/stringy/gross. Hmmm maybe I’ll cut my bangs again for spring…

    You look just like your blog icon! It’s a compliment, btw 🙂

    I agree! All those pics look good! And you don’t have a five-head.

    Your forehead isn’t big at ALL. I look better with one, but because my skin is so oily, any hair on my face tends to absorb it all by 4:00 and I’m left with this gross, lanky, stringy mess across my forehead, so I tend to stay away from a fringe 🙁 I do wish I had one though…

    I have a five-head, you do not. Have you ever considered square, blunt bangs? I think you’d rock them!

    I feel your pain! I have to wear bangs too or else I feel like a cartoon character. But my hair is curly, so every morning I have to straighten my bang-hair or else I’ll just have a row of tightly curled ringlets accenting my enormous forehead. Not the best of looks.

    I think your forehead is a perfectly acceptable size and you look fantastic in all those pictures. I wish I had a bad hair tip for you, but I totally resort to a hat when all else fails. Sometimes I’ve just gotta put a lid on the chaos. 😀

    I like the center, third one on the right row and the one below it!
