To fringe or not to fringe?

Also known as 'bangs' to you super cool Americans, I am forming a decision.

I may get a fringe!

*alert* *alert*

Here's the story***. I have battled with this inner urge to get a fringe all my freaking life, having had one cut in (slowly followed by strenuous exercises of trying to grow it out) about 4 or 5 times in my life. Even my hair dresser is starting to wonder if I'm some kind of hair-scizophrenic... [haha! Take that english coursework - I just used a hyphenated adjective even though I didn't need to..]

I'm currently sick of my hair. I feel like I'm starting to look like one of those grunge type drummers that have curtains as their chosen look... So I want something different. Seeing as though a side fringe accentuates my hamster cheeks [so I'm skinny everywhere else - how does having chubba -yes chubba- cheeks make sense?] I thought - why not get a full but light not heavy fringe put in?

But then my face gets shiny quick so will grease my hair quicker. AHHHH - dilemma!!!

So to fringe or not to fringe?? TELL ME THE ANSWER.

so y'all know I'll get a fringe anyway and will totally hate it..

*** = of a lovely lady, with 3 lovely girls of blonde hair... or something of that sort - bonus points if you guess what theme tune I was trying to remember...

I think you should try the bangs! when you feel greasy, there are cute things you can do with the clip them back/headband them (I used to have full bangs).

As one who has bangs, I have to go with fringe. I'd be lost without mine :)

It's a tricky one, and I'm exactly the same! I seem to have been growing out a fringe my entire life, because when it's almost fully grown out, I'll have a rush of blood to the head and get one cut in again. Now, I always love it the first few days, maybe even a week, but after that I'm like nooooooooo why didn't I remember how much I HATE these pesky things!!! And then I start growing it out again, and so the cycle continues.

My advice: Don't do it!! They're REALLY annoying. Bad hair days are so much worse when you have a fringe to deal with.

do it!
I had a long one cut in last year on the premise that if I hated it I could grow it out,
as it happens, I loved it, just kept forgetting to get it trimmed, so now, no fringe!
