Fringe Benefits

As I turned a milestone birthday this May and had a few different celebrations to mark the occasion, I’ve seen lots of photographs of myself lately, which is something I don’t normally encourage. Some people look great in photos but I am not ones of those fortunate people and am not particularly photogenic.

Anyway what I did notice from the photos was that my middle parted, boho messy hair, was doing nothing for my mature features and although it looks great on girls and ladies of a younger generation, it was maybe time for a change. After a trip to the hairdressers I emerged with a slight fringe. Nothing too severe and the sort of fringe that looks as though it is growing out slightly, but it is a definite improvement. Fringes seem to wave a magic wand and give the appearance of youth and as all my favourite muses seem to have had one at some time or another, I’m in good company.
