On the fringe

Before I say anything else, I have a confession to make. I don't currently own a digital camera. I mean, I think I have one somewhere but that somewhere is most probably back at home in Wakefield rather than here in Edinburgh. So, that explains the complete lack of style photos. That and my severe camera shyness, I really do believe that the camera adds 10lbs...and sometimes three chins, an impossibly wonky arm and cross eyes.

Anyway, my issue at the moment (other than exams and essays) is my hair. Yes, I do consider my hair to be an "issue", I honestly am that self-centred. When I started university last year my hair was short. And odd. Not a good odd either, if I'm being perfectly frank with you. It was even an odd colour and in incredibly bad condition due to excessive bleaching. Bad times, I tell you, bad times.

So I start university and in my flat is a girl with the most amazing long hair. Lightbulb goes off in my head: must. grow. hair. It's now like 15 months later and I personally would count my hair as being "kinda long". It's past my shoulders anyway. And far wavier than I ever remember it being.

My problems now are:
a) it's that annoying inbetween length where it looks sort of triangular when I wear it down
b) scraping my hair back isn't as flattering as I thought
c) do I need a fringe.

It is c) that I would like to deal with. Do I need a fringe? I suspect the answer is yes, however would bangs go with my glasses? Or should I just get better contact lenses that actually help my vision and go for a glasses-unfriendly fringe?

Answers on a postcard please. And if anyone knows how I can just make my hair look like Zooey Deschanel's, that would also be useful to know. Thank you.

she has a startled rabbit thing going on, but look at her hair!
