Been there.

One day, in frustration, I made a microbraid of the hair at the front of the part, braiding it in the direction I wanted it to go. Amazingly, when it dried, I couldn't even tell there was a braid there, so I left it in, and my hair stayed out of my face.

Some time after that I had the chance to have my hair cut by Tiffany Anderson, and expressed my ambiguity about keeping or losing the fringe. She gave me perfect sideswept bangs, which I've kept since, although they've never been perfect except the time she cut them. They're still better than any of the other alternatives I've tried.
