Hair today ...



I spent my Sunday morning looking at pretty images on Pinterest, as you do. It's quite surprising, how long you can spend 'pinning', and admiring all the lovely and interesting images. I found myself, once again, on an Alex Chung board. I find her style, effortlessly chic and I am also a fan of her hair style and cut. Alexa has a soft, centre parting fringe, a cut that I would like to have myself. This began a Pinterest search, for the perfect fringe and hair inspiration. It was quite hard to narrow it down to a few, hence this image heavy post!

I have put together my favourite styles of fringes (above). I adore the black and white images and retro style of Bridget Bardot, and Jane Birkin. Both icons in their own right, with hair and style that still inspires the industry today. The soft edged fringe, beautifully frames their faces. 
Of course, I could not write about hair styles/fringes without mentioning Zoeey Deachanel and her luscious locks (complete hair envy). I do wonder if she simply wakes up with natural flowing hair and the perfect bouncy fringe, I would like to think so. However, I'm sure she has a stylist at hand to prim and perfect her look. I love how her hair never looks over processed, and just falls gently around her face.

I do wish I was more adventurous with my own hair. I love the short, textured fringe, like Drew Barrymore wore in the film, Eternal Sunshine of the the spotless Mind. I'm not sure if I could pull off this style, however, it looks great on others. My hair is a lot lighter than in my profile picture, and I would ideally love honey coloured hair. I am also keen to experiment with pastel colours, and would like to try out a candy floss pink dip dye. This is inspired by Jennie, and her lovely blog post over at Sail Boat (check it out).

There are so many celebrities I could have mentioned (Florence Welsh, Dawn O'Porter, Jameela Jamil), and bloggers (too many to mention), that have fringes and hair cuts that I simply adore. So, as the seasons are changing, I am inspired to make a subtle change to my hair. I plan to have a soft, peek a boo fringe cut (very soon). I think I will use the fun and gorgeous Suki Waterhouse, as a reference (her 'messy' hair is the laid back style that I love).  I hope to have a good cut, and treat myself to some new hair product, in the hope of having a 'L'oreal moment'!  Are there any hair products you would recommend?


I hope you have enjoyed reading. What style fringe is your favourite? Do you prefer a bold statement fringe, or maybe a side parted fringe?

  3. I love full fringes, the bolder the better! I can't be bothered with hair in my own face though, I'm a person of least amount of fuss. But you should do it, and definitely go for the pink dip dye, loving every one of these images. What a hair porn post :)

  7. I love full fringes and always have done - I've had a fringe for most of my life (apart from a couple of years where I experimented and wore it to the side) and honestly I don't ever want to be without it. It's my security blanket! Sounds weird but I guess I'm quite conscious of my forehead, haha. I love every single style you've picked out here and that picture of Drew Barrymore is making me want pink hair!! xoxo

  21. Lovely post. I love the front fringe however I find it's quite a bit of a hassle to maintain it! plus if your hair is anything like mine, once it gets wet in the rain it looks pretty ridiculous lol. Your post has inspired me though, I might just consider it again!

  24. I prefer the bright hair colors to the pastels, probably they just go better with my skin tone. I've had fuchsia, purple, and blue--it's definitely something fun to do, but it's a LOT of maintenance!

  25. I have a full fringe, so a bit of a statement, but I love that you can grip it back or push it too the side, the best of all worlds! :)

  26. These are amazing! I was thinking of getting rid of my fringe as the upkeep is just so stressful (lots of bad hair days!) but I think I'll keep it.

  28. Ahhhhh I wish I could pull off a full fringe! I always thought my round face would make me look absolutely ridiculous if I decided to cut one in though. Aren't we all lusting over The Chung 24/7> D:
