a fringe effect

I know that I've been mulling over this for practically a year (actually, the idea has been in my mind for years but I didn't have a blog to document my horrendous young teenage years), but I think I've decided that I definitely want to get bangs! The decision comes after seeing Kate Moss step out at Bryan Ferry's album launch the other night wit choppy fringe reminiscent of the look she sported in 2007. Seeing Miss Moss sporting this look stirred those familiar feelings in me again that I want - nay, need - fringe. In my mind, once I get that cut, I'll immediately transform into Pattie Boyd and I'll be endlessly alluring to the fellahs.


I think I like this cut even better than the look she sported three (!) years ago, where she had a long bob and rather blunt fringe. Whereas that look appeared uncharacteristically styled and done at times (especially strange for Moss). This look, with the choppy brow-grazing focus cut and the range in lengths of layers - from long past her shoulders to pieces cut right above her cheekbones, is very loose and natural looking and perfect for her decadent-bohemian Anita Pallenberg-esque vibe that she goes with.

do get bangs! i had bangs for years, it´s actually easier to style sometimes than no bangs. if it´s cut well. (teach your hairdresser well! :)
and you get a sixties vibe much easier. some outfits even look better with a fringe!
good luck!

I cut my own bangs earlier this year, because of my obsessions with marianne, anita, and patti.
I highly recommend it!
Now all my mod dresses make more sense...and I will say weirdly enough that Ive been asked on more dates this year than any other year of my life.
Has to be the bangs

I cut my hair in bangs last month hoping they would transform me into Pattie!

honeyboney - I think I'm going to take the plunge! I definitely agree that some outfits look better with fringe. I have dresses that I always think that the best and most-needed accessory is some fringe!

JessM- I think I might end up having to cut my own hair as well, because there aren't too many hairdressers where I go to university. A large part of it for me is Pattie, Marianne and Anita as well - feeling slightly closer like them would be thrilling. So I think I'm going to do it!
And now that you say that bangs have improved your dating life, I'll just HAVE to get them!

Briana - how have your bangs worked out for you? Feeling any more Boyd-ish as of late? I'll need to pick your brain about styling them to MOD perfection!!

Dedicated -
I can't say that I quite look like Pattie (I would have to lose half of my body weight, I'm afraid), but I can say with certainty that the bangs definitely help me feel more Boyd-ish!
My fringe is about mid-way past my eyeline now. I'm in desperate need of a trim, but at the same time, it looks quite groovy being really thick and long. Once I get up the guts to put a photo of myself on here, I'll put one up!
