First week with a fringe. The expertise.

First of all, hi again guys! I missed the internet, does this sound weird? I hope not. Having no access to what happens in the world was definitely an experience but here we are, up and running again!

I am sure you have noticed this post, which together with the new look of the header announced a change. It is nice to have the blog reflecting the changes in real life. Also, it will be mirroring the way events or periods switch, so you will be constantly up to date with whatever happens around here just by keeping an eye on the top-right corner of the header. For starters, welcome to the Spring edition!

Introductory part aside, now it’s time for a short conclusion list after the first week of sporting bangs again.

Pros:
► This new look definitely changes how one perceives the face. I suspect it must have something to do with the extreme length. I even received a “Do I know you?” question alongside other remarks, many of them being compliments. The visual impact is bigger if I wear the rest of my hair up in a ponytail.

► I now have at least two more options of styling my hair in the morning: ponytail as mentioned above or loose, on the shoulders. And if each of them fails, well, the bangs can just be clipped aside and voilà, the third new look. This thing is like a three-in-one concept. If that doesn't sound appealing I don't know what does.

► The perfect excuse to get more hair accessories and headbands. Each of them looks different in this new context and experimenting with them is endless fun!


Cons:
The wind outside spoils the symmetrical display. I always discover myself with my hands up in the air trying to put my hair into order. Well, not that I wasn't already doing that all the time before having bangs but still, it’s a problem more to constantly take care of.

I always remember to put them up when I want to wash my face or apply some eyeliner. Not that big of a fuss here, but it does take a few extra moves to make sure any of the hair will get into my eyes.

► Having to straighten it perfectly each morning. This pretty much depends from person to person, but if your hair curls relatively easily depending on weather conditions, you will know what I mean. Plus, the contrast between perfectly straightened out bangs and slightly wavy hair looks right to me, so no compromise here is accepted.


Now, the only thing that is left for me to do is decide whether I will keep this up for more time. It won't be long before it will get into my eyes. Last time I had fringes they were this short (says measuring two centimeters between index and thumb). We'll see, we'll see.

Finally, if you find yourself tempted to try the look, do make sure you really want it. I have been contemplating the problem for weeks until I was so sure I wanted it, there was no way back. So remember to triple check your desire.

Yeah, I think I just discovered this pros & cons lists are useful. They help you put stuff into perspective. Though instincts rarely fail.

P.S. Just updated the first post with the standing version of the photo. xx
