After every time I get my haircut, my hair at some point reaches a length I can’t stand. It’s like that awkward in between of growing it out, but before it’s actually close to being grown out. When I hit this point, the thought of a haircut consumes me and it does not rest until I walk out of the salon refreshed by a new short cut.
This time, however, the thought of a blunt short haircut (my “usual”) was not enough. Suddenly, the thought of bangs entered my mind and I could not shake it. With a little encouragement from friends (and friends with bangs!), reassurance that hair will in fact grow back, and some Pinterest inspiration pictures to bring to my hairdresser, I walked out of the salon this time with a new short cut AND bangs.
They took a little getting used to and require a bit more maintenance than my usual hair routine (by hair routine I mean towel drying my hair and letting the air do the rest), but sometimes I now wonder who I ever was before bangs. Bangs and I are now one. They are SO fun and versatile. They don’t love the wind, but we’re working on that.
If you have the luxury of having bangs, above are a few styling tips I have picked up thus far in my bang journey. P.S. I swear I am more excited about these bangs than I look in the photos above.
