Growing out your fringe

Fringe

Deciding to get a fringe cut in, is a big decision for most of us and the inevitable growing out phase is sometimes enough to put you off. However let me show you how easy it can be to let your fringe grow out when you eventually do fancy a change and ease the frustrations of battling the bangs. Check out these simple tips and tricks to help you make the most of your tresses during that awkward in between stage and in fact, embrace the versatility of your hairstyle transformation.

When you’re trying to grow your fringe out, having regular trims are your very best friend. Not only do they keep your ends looking fresh and healthy and help your locks grow quicker. Snipping away at your tresses may seem like the very last thing you want to do but topping up your trims will enhance your hair’s ability to absorb the essential moisture and nutrients it needs to prevent breakage that will slow down growth. Ask your stylist to start blending your fringe into the rest of your hair to ensure your style still looks its very best.

If you’ve hit that awkward in between stage, don’t be tempted to re cut in your fringe, as you will only regret it in the long run. Instead be patient and remember you still have lots of options. Rolling the lengths of the fringe and securing with a hair grip is a good way to grow it out.

Growing out your fringe doesn’t have to leave you feeling limited and frustrated, it can mean trying new exciting styles you may not have experimented with otherwise. Longer bangs can be swept into a side parting for a simple but super chic look. An angled parting is the perfect way to disguise awkward lengths and mask any tell-tale signs whilst looking great at the same time. What was once a painstaking ordeal now turns into a great way to soften any hairstyle and makes for the perfect way to frame your face.  Accessories can even be a whole new world of experimentation with pretty clips, hair bands and braids. 

Or why not add some extensions to give a layered effect around the face to blend in the fringe while it grows out.

Hair advice for Bad Hair Days

Bad Hair Extensions
Bad Hair

Waking up to a bad hair extension day should be a thing of the past! You can achieve gorgeous hair while you sleep. How? Simple. What you do before bedtime will ultimately determine the condition of your hair in the morning and there are some easy tricks you can do tonight to save time and frustration.

Hair advice

Be gentle with your extensions. Don’t style your hair into tight ponytails or braids. Put your hair into loose plaits or a loose bun for sleeping and swimming and use a special extension brush so not to put tension on the bonds.

If you want the effect of a natural wave in the morning, try putting your hair in one large loose braid or two smaller ones while your hair is still slightly damp. In the morning, gently take out the braids and style with your fingers (brushing will make it frizzy) and finish with a little hair spray.

You can also try putting your hair in a topknot. After shampooing, towel dry your hair and again when it is still slightly damp, style your hair into a loose bun (making sure it’s not too high up that it puts pressure on the bonds). When you wake up in the morning, undo the bun and enjoy the loose waves you have created finishing with a little hairspray.

If you like to sleep with your hair down, it’s time to kick that bad habit. It’s better to sleep with your hair contained. Tossing and turning causes an all-around mess. This results in knots and tangles that add more stress to your hair when trying to brush it out.

These are very simple ideas for having a quick and easy style every morning, many people believe that having hair extensions installed will add to the your styling time every morning, but in fact the opposite is true… the hair needs less styling as the extra weight and thickness helps stop those bad hair days.
