Today I will honour fringes (or bangs to all you Americans out there)!
Queen of bangs Bettie Page
Why? Because I practically always have one myself. Back when I was a child, I always used to have a fringe until my mother decided that I got too old for it when I was about 11 years old. Too old? Yes, too old. Apparently, my mother has always associated fringes with children and made me grow out mine. Although it was a relief for me back then, I have become addicted to them a couple of years back again.
No-Fringe-Sarah vs. Fringe-Sarah vs. My-Fringe-Has-Gotten-Too-Long-Sarah
Yes. That's the difference a fringe can make.I have a high forehead and a fringe makes a long face optically shorter. Yes, I do have that in common with a certain miss Page whose picture also can be found within this entry.
In fact, I love my fringe so much that I even bought hairdresser's scissors just in order to cut my fringe myself in stead of visiting the actual hairdresser's every time it gets too long. The hairdresser was rather impressed by my cutting skills, or well, he said that he had seen "much worse". I took it as a compliment.
And what would an honouring post be without pictures of fringes other than my own? That's right: rubbish.
