Who's that girl?

I thought it was time I had a revamp to my hair - usually when I get bored I dye it, but he idea of further damage to my hair was sickening - so I've been 'umming' and 'ahhing' about this for ages, but finally I've bitten the bullet, dragged my arse to the hairdressers and given my hair the chop...

Top Left: Curly/natural. Top Right, Straight. 
Bottom Left: Up-do. Bottom Right: Sex Hair????
Ok, 'chop' was exaggerating - there's no pixie crops here, I got my fringe cut - eeeek! Like I said I've been considering this since I got my dip-dye, but was never brave enough to take the plunge... But seeing as this year I was brave enough to video blog, I thought I'd be able to get some bangs cut it....

I had originally thought to watch a few "How to cut your own fringe videos" on Youtube, but cutting my own bangs in just seemed stupid - not because it would be awful, but because if want something done amazing get it done professionally! Plus, I couldn't risk a shaky hand with the kitchen scissors and ending up with three stands like on some ladies I've seen recently - eek, I just couldn't take the risk personally...

So I've got a fringe.... I actually haven't had a fringe since I was 17 - so it's been mighty strange for my peripheral vision to cope, but I'm getting there. -Plus I'm loving the versatility of trends I can take with it... Eg. I can have it full, swept, parted (Think Alexa Chung) , and even clipped back for Cheer! So the Hair world is my oyster... Oh and if you don't get the title, it's because my guy said I looked like Zooey Deschanel with my new fringe - I don't, but I did appreciate the comparison to that gorgeous woman! (She's definitely an idol of mine)

I would love to know what you all think of my new-do and if you've got any product or styling tips to keep my fringe luscious I'd love to hear - I don't want to end up with an afro fringe or like something from a bad 80/90's film do I? - I was actually chuffed I woke up and it was a bit fluffy, but not quite resembling There's something about Mary (e.g sticking up cum hair if you haven't seen it Google it, it's HILARIOUS, but no-one wants that look!) or a super afro fringe due to my curly hair - so tips are greatly appreciated!

Though, all in all I'm loving having a fringe sooo... Tell me your thoughts...
