To Fringe or Not to Fringe

While dithering about whether or not to grow out my hair, I have left my bangs alone. They started out as a short betty page length and have now progressed to past my eyebrows and are quite unmanageable. I could grow them out with everything else or chop them again. I'm so torn between all of the adorable hairstyles with and without bangs!

Vintage Fringe

A cute curly fringe.

A smoother bang.

Pin-curl diagram for bangs!

More bangs.

Betty Page style fringe.

With my bangs, I have been able to get both the smooth, Betty Page style and curly style using a curling iron and pin curls, respectively.

Vintage No Fringe

A soft vintage look.

A more spunky, curly look.

The faux bang made by rolling the hair or with a rat (which I have NOT mastered.).

Modern Vintage-y Bangs

Zooey Deschanel with her cute, eclectic, vintage-y wardrobe.

Another Zooey-I couldn't resist!

Kenley Collins showing a definite vintage vibe.

I love the eclectic, vintage-y look, especially for a beginner like me with a modest vintage wardrobe and a job that does not jive with true vintage attire. (I cringe at the thought of dripping chemicals on a 60+ year old garment! No vintage in the lab!)

As I continue to ponder this, I'll probably end up with a post of my bangs styled in a couple different ways.

So, what do people think? Fringe or no fringe?
