Hiding a Fringe | Look 1

Hi, my name is Georgia and I’m indecisive!
There I said it, every decision I make about my hair, about a month later I regret it or am bored. And right now I am bored of my fringe, I am doing everything to try and hide it. I thought I would share some looks with you, just in case you are in the same boat.
I have a few styles to show you and I thought I would do a mini series over the next few weeks instead of one giant blog post. The looks in these posts are simple and quick to do, even the up do’s, because they are the styles I do for work and I hate taking time on my work hair.
Let’s begin, for look one, because I have no other name for it, you will need …

hair band

head band/alice band
dry shampoo (optional)
salt or texturising spray (optional)
hair spray
kurby/hair grips
A lot of ingredients for a simple hairstyle but I assure you, if you have a fringe that isn’t in it’s almost touching eyes phase, you will need helping hands from these holy grail products. I would suggest doing this look on second day hair, some products are optional, just use what you feel is necessary. 
I start by obviously brushing through my luscious locks, spray a small amount dry shampoo (batiste cherry is my favourite, it smells amazing!) onto the roots of my fringe and then do a little naughty back comb so the pesky parts that usually like to fall out of place, don’t, also I love volume at the front. I then spray a little more dry shampoo on the rest of my roots, except my ends which get a sparing dose of salt spray. I then scrunch all my hair, but my fringe, until it looks like I rolled out of bed after a particularly bad night.
Once I look like cousin it, I tip my head upside down and grab all my hair and pop it into a messy bun, if you are not a master of the messy bun then I suggest putting it into a ponytail first, then wrapping it round for the desired look. Don’t be worried about bits falling out, it all adds to the effect, I sometimes grab a few bits that are loose and pull them out more, so don’t be afraid to either. If you feel you need a little extra security with your bun then go ahead and secure it with hair grips wherever necessary.
Now we come onto the head band, you want to make sure you get all your fringe in, but do not press down hard, you still want the volume we created earlier, tip your head back slightly so your hair sits flat then gently place the hair band in the desired position. This is the step that takes me the longest, I never get it right first time.
To finish I spray a little hairspray over my entire hair and I’m ready to go.

This is probably the only look I do that uses a lot of products, if you are not into putting a lot of gunk on your hair then don’t worry, there is a product free look coming next time.
Let me know if this is a style you would recreate.
Georgia xx

    I am currently in the process of growing my fringe too! Using a lot of hair grips and hair spray to tame the wispy bits haha. I may have to try this, and see if an alice band will suit me 🙂

    Great post

    I love this look! I always wind up having to hide my fringe when it gets too long and I can't be bothered going to the hairdressers :p x

    Great way to hide a fringe. Every time I have a fringe cut in I hate it then I grow it out and then I think hmm I fancy a fringe-and so the circle starts again. I'll remember this for next time!!
