Strands of hair over your eyes!!

Hair style - It bothers me to see such hairstyles!

Fashion dictates that you have strands of hair covering your eyes. Fine if you want that hair there go ahead but why do you push it and make it a fashion statement - pushing those strands of hair that is. I was watching a celebrity the other day performing and doing exactly that. She was there for about an hour and in that hour I could see her in action not less than 50 times. Are you comfortable watching this activity - a sight for sore eyes? Or are you the cause of it!

That fashion designer who started this needs a brain check up..eyes are the most beautiful organs on our face..you can find something wrong with nose, or mouth, or cheek bones, or colors but find me a person who says his or her eyes are ugly. No plastic surgeon tampers with that for sure..he he. Almost everybody has good set of eyes which look good as well function well. Why on earth would a person want to hide that!!! Beats me. Of course you know what opinion I have of the person who does not use his or her brain..celebrity or not.

Funny you say that vandana, I really don't like my eyes and probably when it comes to being attracted to someone, I look at the eyes. My husband has dark brown eyes, mine are I guess a mild hazel, light brown with yellow flecks. Yuck..lol

This fashion I see has been there as far back as I can remember. Fashions come and fashions go but this hair style is here to stay. What's so fashionable about it I fail to understand. What is so grand about pushing that hair time and again. I feel uncomfortable just looking at them doing it!

hi allknowing I think carm has a point they may be self conscious and are trying to cover their face from others. I want my eyes to show as they are my best feature dark blue-green that change color with what I wear and my white hair sets them' off.,

I don't know who started this fashion, but I think some do this because they have low self-esteem and by covering a part of their face, they feel they are hiding from the world..I might be wrong, but that is what I think..

So you do not have this hairstyle. I am glad to know that. Also having seen you participate here I find you to be a sober soul! Honestly carmel...it gets on my nerves looking at these knits pushing the hair away repeatedly. Why is it now a fashion to not only have those strands of hair over one's eyes but pushing them away!

You are a worker carmel... where you need both your hands and if you are going to push the hair off your face how can you ever do your chores? This fashion is meant for those who have nothing better to do!

A Fringe on a Man - Yes, men can wear their hair long over their foreheads, such as this guy (actually crh back in '04?), but his is not too long, and therefore not uncomfortable.
In Britain we call it a fringe; it the US it's known as bangs, the hair that hangs down over the forehead and into the eyes. It's an aestheticizing phenomenon with quite a long pedigree, not just for women, but for men too. Although for much of history as I see it, hair has been worn away from the forehead. In the 1960s, long hair became fashionable for men, but for the older generation, I imagine it was seen as overly femininine. And yet it's not, necessarily, because many tough guys of the cinema have worn their hair in their eyes without looking overly feminine. It's possible to get used to having a fringe; or bangs; so you no longer barely even notice it/them; however, if it becomes uncomfortable...well a person will spend much of their time pushing their hair from their eyes, which can make an onlooker uncomfortable. It's fine to do this occasionally, but not incessantly. And as I see it, as soon as a fringe becomes uncomfortable, then, it should be trimmed, until it's bearable. I myself have sported a fringe that has tormented me; but never for long...I simply can't stand it; and will invariably reach for the scissors.

The bangs and fringes do not cover the eyes. They only cover the forehead but if you look at the picture that I have uploaded here her one eye is completely covered with the strands of hair. I sometimes wonder considering that it is so inconvenient what prompts these people to go for such fashions! In your avatar I see you sporting a fringe. If that is you, it suits you perfectly!

That's a neat emoticon you have created. Does it mean you are smiling. What is the 'o' for. Does it represent your nose?

You have stated the reason in your first starting words itself allknowing! And if you don't keep pushing those strands of hair fifty times in fifty minutes the whole purpose of that fashion is defeated. Whether I am comfortable or not depends on the person; if her answers are interesting and she is simple in sharing her viewpoints instead of being "fashionably affected" then I don't mind it.Otherwise I will just switch channels or switch the t.v. off.I have better things to do.

Anything for fashion kala! In some ways during our young days I suppose we too must have done something just to be in fashion. Can you remember anything that you did was inconvenient but you did it because it was in fashion? For me it was shoes!

Agreed! In my case given total freedom, perhaps I would have, But my mother was very strict about all this fashion; I still remember the words she used when I wanted to wear one close necked [mind you --close necked blouse because it was a fashion those days [I used to wear a half -sari after eighth standard].She protested saying "You can do whatever you want after you get married and go to your husband's house. You can go with a 'neckless' [“or reckless”] blouse but before marriage nothing of the sort can be done here." It took some convincing to make her believe that close necked was in fact far too modest and just because it was fashion and some film actresses wore this, it could not be otherwise. She refused to allow me to wear a blouse with back buttons which was a rage those days. And of course I got a nice new close-necked blouse for a new silk sari and wore it later in my school itself for some occasion.

So that if it is modest. It is fashion after all and fashion and 'old sochool' does not go together!. I too had a tough time convincing the 'powers that be' - my first sleeveless blouse, my first lipstick all this is covered with memories which are sweet and sour. It was my eldest brother who set the pace for his siblings. My husband being modern I had no problems with him.

Most of the female celebrities in our country doing this. It is the tactic to drive attention towards her. Not alone the celebrities doing this mannerism. Many girls who love to be fashionable following the same whenever they are around some people. Initial days I got irritated, now I would laugh at them how funny they are, lol.

Anything to be 'in' I suppose even if it is torture. I am guilty of it not with my hair but the shoes I used to wear. I would find them so inconvenient but would go for them just because they were in fashion! I am wiser now!

hi all knowing I think its more habit than a purposeful flirting with her hair all over the place. I wear a hair band m ysle as I have long hair and do not like it getting into my eyes. it looks messy and makes my eyes sore. I do not watch anyone who doles that as I think it looks a tad silly myself.I am not the ca use of anything. l.ol lol

Glad to hear that. Knowing a bit about you I cannot imagine you pushing your hair every second minute! A sober hairdo would be my choice for you.

Throwing your hair away from your face without using your hand is a fashion statement. It kind of makes you modern, stylish but does not matter the effort that is required to perform that task pretty often and not to mention the irritation that causes to people like me watching someone doing it!

Well, celebrities usually get hairstylists to style their hair- give them hairstyles that would look good on them, not necessarily comfortable. maybe it has become her mannerism or she was just so annoyed by the hair, she should get a head band.

It can loom egdy and fashion.forward and I guess there editorial photos and video clips in which it looks good. But otherwise, it covers half the eye, which is the most important asset on a person's face, because we can read so much from it and I think they are beautiful, and covers the face too. I mean, I'm not attracted to people with this hairstyle in real life, because it seems like they wanna hide something and don't wanna reveal their true self artificially.

I don't like this kind for hair style. I feel like ti will just ruin my face and I won't be able to see well. And besides, hair over the face gives bad breakouts to the skin so it's a no-no for me.

You are a practical person by all standards, it seems to me. It is so annoying when hair falls all over the face when one is doing some serious work, specially.

I wonder too why people let some hair loose hanging on their face and keep pushing it back every now and then :p It loos good only for one shot pictorial- but wearing such hairstyle I am sure anyone would feel irritated each time the hair covers the eye.
