I hear you! I’d love to get a fringe but with my curly hair I don’t trust any hairdresser to cut it properly & not too short. I should have changed glasses a year ago at least but what can you do, sucks being poor.
With my experience involving hair dressers, it’s sometimes easier to just do trial and error of DIY haircuts before you get it right. That’s what I do with my bangs. :| It’s way cheaper to just fuck up a little bit than drop twenty dollars on a hack job.
I bought my frames off eBay a few years ago. They’re vintage cats eyed frames, which is nice, but they’re also: old as balls and made of a plastic type not used for commercial glasses anymore. It’s not really an issue of “I can’t see well” as “this is my last pair and they are falling apart while I wear them”.
So, yeah, I feel you. I reblogged a PSA a few weeks ago about a website that offers cheap frames, but you still need to pay for an eye exam. Buh.
Haha, I used to cut my hair myself, with varying results, but yes, at least even if I screwed up, I didn’t have to pay on top of being all “WOE, MY HAIR, MY FUCKING HAIIIIR”.
I should buy proper scissors though, cause the big ass fabric scissors I have aren’t super wieldy :3 *goes hunting for youtube tutorials*
Hmm, I’ll look around to see if there’s something similar in France, I think it should at least be possible to buy the frame and then have a traditional optician fit you the lenses… Thanks for the advice ;)
