Bangs or No Bangs

bangs or no bangs / a thousand threads
I do this every time… I get seduced by the perfect bangs that others (ahem… Alexa) are somehow able to pull off and I think hey, maybe I can do it too! I’ve already got the side bangs…

Misguided thoughts? What do we think? Should I go for it?

    Oh bangsโ€“three years later and I’m still growing you out. I LOVED mine (John called them my power bangs) but they’re a big commitment.

    Bangs are so tricky. The last time went to my stylist who usually does a good job I wanted long wide bangs angled down. But she cut them straight across. I had said I had wanted my style to be a little different this time and I did not want these whispy angled pieces she usually cuts around my chin. I have a long chin and this just draws attention to it. Well I think she got a little pissed b/c when she but cut them straight across she said “now they match” hmm what does the whispy pieces of hair by my chin have to do with the bangs?

    I would say go for it but do your homework. A lot of stylists do not do a good job with bangs.

    Yes! So happy you’re going to go for it. I cut all mine off a week ago after seeing the video you posted of Garance and I only wish I had done it sooner. Good luck!

    I think you’d look so adorable with bangs! They’re sort of a mistake for me, on the other hand. Only two days ago, I gave myself one of the best cuts ever (I cut on my own all the time), but decided the next day that I should do just a PINCH of long bangs for framing. Turns out I grabbed a chunk too large, and then of course I had to fix the entire thing and cut off another 3 inches. Gah.

    You, though. YOU are the perfect candidate for bangs. ๐Ÿ™‚
