My fringe is too short!

December 1, 2008 3:58pm CST
I went to the hairdresser today and whilt she did an okay job on the rest of my hair (it wasnt great to start with) She cut my fringe/bangs too short! I explained this and she gave me a discount and I told her whilst she was cutting but she said "it'll be fine!" but my hair grows reaaalllllyy slowly, and now ~i am stuck with it for at least 3 months! whenever my fringe is above my eyebrows I look about 14 and permanently surprised! I have a really high forehead so i need a fringe and its too short to use a a side fringe, what can I do?

Tips: 'Keep your hair sleek and frizz free'. Fringes and bangs can be even more annoying if they're poofy and frizzy. Prevent this from happening to you by washing your hair with an anti-frizz balm or serum. 'Pin it back'. This is the most simple suggestion to getting your fringe out of the way. Simply smooth it back over your head and pin it back with a clip. If you want, you can also add a headband to smooth it even more. Water, hairspray and gel will all help keep the pinned fringe in place. 'Turn it into a quiff'. If pinning your fringe back gives you the flathead look, do the exact opposite. Turn your fringe into a fashionable quiff. Brush your fringe thoroughly and dampen with water and hairspray. Pull it backwards and twist the ends of the fringe hair about three times. Then push the fringe so that it puffs out, and clip the ends back with a hair clip or bobby pin. With cautions styling, the quiff can give you a stylish look. Be sure not to make the quiff too big or small. 'Pin it to the side.' This will let your fringe frame your face, creating a more feminine look. Take your fringe and brush it out thoroughly. If you've got a shorter fringe, sweep it to the side of your head rather than behind your ear, and pin it back that way. 'Do a middle parting.' Try splitting your fringe/bangs in half and then sweeping them to either sides of your face to create a middle parting. You can keep it in place and clear bobby pins, or leave a few strands loose to frame your face. 'Hide it'. If all else fails, completely block out your fringe/bangs. Hats, caps, beanies, bandannas and thick headbands will help cover your hair and draw attention away from irritating fringes/bangs.

Aw I'm sorry to hear this! The hair cutter once messed up my layers and it was awkward... and took a long time to grow out. Uhm. Yes try headbands or hairclips to help fix this, maybe some style that goes well with the new fringe! Also try to get enough sleep and reduce stress, and also eat very healthy, so that more energy is allotted towards hair growth.

That's terrible! Doesn't sound like much you can do. I guess it's a good thing that she gave you a discount but that doesn't help you much. First of all I would make that my last visit to her and the next time try telling them to leave it alone all togehter and maybe trim it up yourself.The only thing I can think of is a hat. Some people look really good in a hat unfortunately I am not one of them Good Luck!
