Le fringe

02 December 2014

So it has been almost three months since I stepped inside a salon and I've been feeling restless. I was bored with my hair and I needed change. I love my haircut and apart from the roots, my hair color has remained as vibrant as ever (thank you, JuRo Salon Exclusif!) so I didn't want to do something drastic like get a pixie cut yet again or have my hair tampered with colored. 

When I woke up yesterday, I decided I wanted to get a fringe again.

Going to miss these purple streaks, though
I didn't know if it would look good on me so I dug up photos from my old posts and tried to visualize my current self with bangs. I thought it would look okay but I still wanted to ask for my friends' opinion. More than half said I should go for it, while a few said I should just leave my hair alone.

I am nothing but a stubborn girl though, so after work I found myself in a salon near the office with a hairstylist who spent less than ten minutes snipping my bangs off. 

I'm glad to report that the purple streaks were left unharmed ♥
What do you think?

I posted this on Facebook with the caption, "Neil Gaiman said we shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes. I believe in Neil Gaiman and I believe in making mistakes. So I got bangs." I thought it was a pretty clever way to fish for reactions and I'm glad that a great majority of them said I looked okay with bangs. (^_−)☆

So excited for the day I can finally put my hair up in a ponytail to come! I'm not going to let my hair reach past shoulder-length though, as Sir Jude of JuRo Salon said it will just weigh me down. I'm trusting the experts.

I love this hairstyle because it's so easy to maintain (wash and wear, baby!) and because the fringe lends a chic and sassy appeal. Hair doesn't make the woman but good hair definitely helps. A new hairstyle can give you a new lease on life, yes? Now I'm having fun putting my bright-colored lipsticks on and checking to see how far I can go.

Did you recently get a hair makeover, too? Did you like it? Let's swap hair stories!


  1. Refreshing! I love it! I am planning to grow my hair long and have it dyed next year or before VDay. IDK Let's see! Hehehe.

  2. Love the new look! I don't like the state of my hair right now, but I am holding off going to the salon because I'm not yet sure what I want to do with it. Leaning towards getting a digital perm though!

  3. I love this look! It's sooo fresh~! Haha, I love your pixie cut hair, too. But this one is sweeter <3

  4. Go for it! I would like to have a whole head of purple next time, all I have are purple streaks now. ^_^

  5. Thanks, Gen! I would like some curls too, but I'm worried my hair's too thick. :/

  6. Hee thanks, Tiara! I'm glad you liked it! :)


Comments brighten up my day! Thank you for leaving kind words!
