I’ve posted this Vogue Japan editorial before. But I can’t shake the thought of bold bangs from my mind. And seeing as my hair is curly I’m trying to reason that waves and bangs can work in harmony. My proof? Abbey. But do I have to pierce my nose to achieve the same edge? It might be worth it.
(Sorry for all the hair posts.. but feel free to admire all of the leather in this editorial!)

  1. DO IT Cristina! So I can live through you vicariously without having to actually cut my own hair. Oh & I used to have my nose pierced – till my mom thought it was cute then I immediately took it out.


  2. I went through exactly the same thing back in the Autumn, I was desperate for a fringe like this, so one night at around 2am, i took the scissors and I did it! I’ll admit it wasn’t great so I pinned it back for a few days until I plucked up the courage to sort it out. It went well with my wavy hair (post hairdresser visit), i just wish my hair had been a little longer (it only came down to my shoulders). I’ve now swept it to the side and I’m growing it out for Summer but I’d definitely go for it if I were you… although I recommend taking yourself down to the hairdressers unless you’re particularly skilled with the scissors.
