Re: Using you own hair to make a fringe

Batty19, did you ever make a fringe from your own hair? If so, I would be interested to hear how you did it.
Hope you are doing ok. x

Re: Using you own hair to make a fringe

I like forward planning lol. I bought my wigs and scarves etc before i even had my surgery.  Wanted to do it on a nice day,, when I was well, positive etc and we had lunch out. I am a very organised person and did not want to wait till after surgery when i might not have been up to it.  They sit there on dressing table waiting for the fateful day when all my hair drops out.  I begin chemo on 14th April so dont expect they will be sitting there too long.  Good luck xxx

Re: Using you own hair to make a fringe

Thanks for the thoughts and ideas. The idea of using my own hair was that hopefully I would still look like me! This is just forward planning as I haven't yet got my start date for chemo but expect it to be before end of the month.

Re: Using you own hair to make a fringe

what a good idea wish I had thought of that lol.  I have just bought a fringe on a head band to wear under hats/scarves etc. I hate to be without a fringe as I have a very high forehead.  It also has some hair down the side too, so I hope I wont look too bald lol. this together with all the headscarves etc I hve bough and the two decent wigs, will, I hope, last me throughout the nightmare bald period.  I start my chemo on 14th so am up and ready for whatever it throws at me lol - good luck  val xxx

Re: Using you own hair to make a fringe

Can't help there, Batty, but when I was in Claire's accessories last week I did notice all sorts of faux hair products, one of which was a clip in fringe. Might be easier to find a way to attach something like that to a turban than trying to do something with your own hair?

Using you own hair to make a fringe

has anyone made a fringe from hair lost because of chemo, to make a fringe to use when wearing a scarf(turban). If so can you give me any tips?
