Fringebangs Trim

My fringebangs have been driving me crazy for weeks.
I've been wearing them like this (pinned back) nearly every day.

They don't look terrible in this picture, but here they are in all their glory.

So I grabbed some scissors and chop, chop, chopped.

I'm not gonna lie.  I don't love them.  I usually have keep them longish and swooping off to the right.  It works for me.  I know this.
I was pretty sure that straight across the forehead, full fringebangs wouldn't suit me.  But I was tempted.  Tempted by pictures like this.

There was one fatal flaw in my plan.  
I do not look like Zooey Deschanel.  
The most important difference is this:

My ratio is more like 33% fringebangs/ 66% face

I've just spotted another difference.  Zooey's forehead is the widest part of her face.  My cheeks/jaw are the widest point.  Oh well.  It's only hair and they'll grow out soon enough...

Have you ever tried a look that you liked on someone else, but found it didn't work on you?
Have you ever taken scissors to your own hair?


  1. I disagree - I think your new bangs look fab!

  2. Aw, thanks! I definitely don't hate them. I just won't be sorry when they grow out a little :)

  3. I think 33% bangs works for you. It looks really nice!

  4. Thank you Artsy-Ashley! You're very kind. They're already growing out a bit, but still not long enough to sweep to the side.

  5. Hi there, I've just been reading through your blog and really enjoying it (found you through "Beyond the Queen" blog). I think your fringe is really cute. I'm always tempted to do some as well. I hate paying for a haircut, so actually had my husband cut my hair a few weeks ago! Scary! I'm going to attempt cutting layers into my hair soon too.

  6. Thanks for reading Kris! Welcome! I actually finally got a real haircut this weekend. My layers were sooo grown out and I feel 10x better. You're very brave to let your hubs cut your hair!

  7. that looks very nice on you I think.I adore zooey also she looks very sweet:)

  8. your bangs are cute! they don't look like Z's, yet they are you!
