Like rebellious 90s teen pop star turned intergalactic eye-roller/alien fancier Billie Piper in her pre-doctor days, I have a curtain fringe situation. It was about this time last year I cut a blunt fringe back into my hair after growing all of it out, and now I'm close to where I was then in general look (although my hair is still about 7 inches shorter than it was before I cut it short). My fringe section is just starting to leave the nose-tickling stage, and my hair has a fun mushroom effect where the end of my former fringe dips in to meet the longer hair below.
At this point I'm getting a lot of little fringe-wearing devils popping up on my shoulder saying things about how good fringes are. I am having a bit of fringe nostalgia. There's a dewy white haze around my fringe-related memories, and every picture of myself with a fringe I see is cuter than I thought possible. But I'm well aware of this danger, and am carefully counteracting it by looking at equally adorable no-fringe pictures. This includes Buffy's tendrils of face-framing fringe hair, and the endless stream of people around me who look amazing without a fringe. Here are some good pictures of fringeless folks:
|Billie Piper letting her awkward grown out fringe hair sit wherever it wants and still looking cool.|
|Buffy can destroy enemies even with tendrils of hair tickling her face.|
