The last time I was in for a trim my hairdresser asked if I often wore my hair in a low ponytail. Horrified, my response was a sharp, 'No! I'm not Jane Eyre!' Rather than broken-off strands, she was looking at the layer of 'new' hair that's grown back since RA drugs caused a little hairtastrophe. (Always take a folic acid supplement if your specialist tells you to! Your hair will fall out!) It has taken forever to get my hair back to anything like it was before and I still have new hairs appearing all the time. I'm bored rigid of my medium-length, layered style but I can't do anything different while it's getting back to normal. However, what I'm craving is a long fringe and bouffant 'do as worn by 1960's beauties Brigitte Bardot, Goldie Hawn and Jean Shrimpton. Oui Je t'aime! (Although Jane Birkin's hair didn't make the collage. Soz.)
Plenty of modern-day lovelies are also fans of this look thanks to its face-flattering properties. Seems as though there's nothing drastic about a long fringe I thought I might have a go at cutting it myself... Préparez-vous pour une autre catastrophe. Would you wear le bouffant?
