I've had my hair cut! I bit the bullet and went for a full fringe and so far I'm loving the change. I'm still working out how best to wear it, I'm thinking soft waves/curls through the ends and voluminous at the crown - otherwise it can look a bit helmet hair. I'm determined to make it work though. I might invest in some GHDs, a round thermal brush and some Oribe volume texture spray. But for now my Remington straighteners and batiste will have to do. I really do NEED to get a job.
