I’ve been cutting my own fringe for yonks (cheaper, easier, you’re in control and more fun 😜) so here’s all my top tips in one 5 min video – grab a cuppa and your sharpest pair of scissors*, have a watch and go for it. Good luck and let me know how you get on !
The other night, as I was tucking Sonny into bed just after we’d read about teeth (adults have 32 of the things, apparently!) in one of our favourite books, ‘How Will I Grow?‘, and the difference between baby ones and grown up ones, and Sonny had launched in to an anecdote about why baby ones are “cooler” (how a 3 year old knows the word “cool” is totally beyond me) than “grown up” ones and how he’s convinced that he’s lost a tooth (he definitely hasn’t), I was instinctively triggered to ask him one of my all time favourite questions, and it goes like this:
