It’s a commitment to blow drying and daily styling, maybe a process of reinvention, and for some, a post-breakup power move. Please note: this is generally not advised.
Now, we all know there is only a fine line between discovering your new signature hairstyle or the cut that will haunt you for the rest of your life.
Hairdressers translated. Here’s what they really think when you’re in the salon chair. Post continues after video.
We at Mamamia know the gravitas of this decision. And to help you answer the age-old conundrum of ‘but like… do you think I should get a fringe’, we asked 31 women to share photos of their hair before and after ‘the snip’.
Like you, these women have googled images of Zooey Deschanel, Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller before they took the plunge. Some triumphed… others didn’t, but they all came back smarter and stronger with the benefit of hindsight.
May they inspire (or prevent) your next chop.
"I cut my fringe during the COVID lockdown around 2020. It was a full-on vibe but I'm in my blonde era at the moment and LOVING it."
