New Hairdo Regret




We have all been through it. You are in the mood for a change, a new start and what is the first thing us girls look at to change? Our hair!

It's been about a month since I cut myself a fringe (or bangs) and I'm still not quite sure how I feel about it. There are days where I look in the mirror and think, "Yeah, does not look too bad" and then other days where I just wish I could go back in time and stop myself from going anywhere near my hair with a pair of scissors. Or more accurately, I am desperate for my fringe to grow out now, which is obviously taking much longer than I would like, sigh...

This got me thinking. We as women put so much value on our hair, not to mention appearance in general. I will be the first to admit a lot of my identity is attached to my hair. I have always been the girl with the super long hair and as much as I would love to change it up, and go shorter, I just can't get myself to do it. Partly because I'm scared of "new hairdo regret" and partly because who would I be without it? We all have that "thing", something that we are known for and that makes us stand out from the crowd. I know it's a very superficial thing to be attached to and find identity in, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one, but it is the truth.  Some people identify with being the tall one or the short one, it's different for everyone.

So, the point I'm trying to make is that we all have different things we identify with, good or bad. I guess the question is when does it start to become a problem?
I am by no means saying that the fringe was the worst mistake ever, it will grow out and it's not the biggest problem in my life, it just kinda got me thinking...

I would love to know what your thoughts are. Are you as attached to your hair as I am to mine? And what do you attach your identity to?


Lots of Love

  1. I really enjoyed this post. I had a fringe years and years ago and I loved it. I don't think I would get one again though because I get sweaty on nights out (haha) and don't want to cut about all night with a split fringe! That is genuinely my only reason for not getting one again!

    I'm crazy! Haha!

    Lots of love

    1. Thank you so much lovely!! Yeah, the fact that I cut mine now in the summer, where it's about 33℃ on the regular, definitely doesn't help. Haha xx

  2. I thought this when I had my hair dyed from bleach blonde to dark brown and I HATED it at first but actually, I love it and it was the best decision I made!

  3. I've never died my hair I guess my blonde hair is my identity as it's always been blonde. I had a fringe once but I got annoyed with it so went back to a side fringe

  4. I've had a full fringe for over two years now and I can't imagine having my hair any other way now. I've finally found a hairstyle that I think I'll love forever! Hope you find yours soon

  5. I love having a fringe and have always had one ever since I was a little kid. I would always love to have one every now and then. However, sometimes I would get sick of it and would grow it out and that's the process I hate the most. I am actually at that stage now and I'm torn between letting it grow or just get a fringe back sigh.

  6. To be honest I just cut it short and wait till it grows and repeat really, I'm not really sentimental of emotionally attached to my hair! I loved reading this post though, love the way you write!

  7. I loved having a fringe as a child but as it got older it doesn't suit my face at all and I'd really regret it now days x

  8. I've never had a fringe and I don't think I ever will. I don't think it would suit my face and I'm too attached to my curls!

  9. This post is something I discovered the hard way back in December 2015. I had really long hair which was down my back and it was gorgeous and it was me! My hair was my identity! I took great care of it and was super proud. I then suffered with Telogen Effluvium and lost over 70% of my hair. I had to cut it short and lived with it in a plait. I was so upset and lost my confidence! I now have a short bob (with a fringe) and my thickness is coming back now!

    Hair is our identity, and this post completely summed up how I felt.
