You guys know I can’t make a major hair decision without consulting you first.
Plus, I mean, I know you love being a part of the decision, right guys? …guys? Bueller?
Anway, here’s my dilemma (to the fifteen or so people who care and are still reading…): Bangs. Yay or nay?
The fact is, I’ve had bangs for probably 85-90% of my life in some capacity. Exhibit A:
I know, I look like an elf. I was a petite child. (And seriously, why could my hair have not just stayed that color?)
But see? Rocking the bangs despite being alive for less than three years.
I could go through a whole montage of me with bangs over the years, but I was a late bloomer, so that’s just way too many awkward years for me to relive this morning. Just trust me, I’ve almost always had them.
I had bangs at my wedding:
But after that event, I kind of “decided” to grow them out. I use quotes there because it wasn’t like, an active decision. I just didn’t keep up with cutting them. As of right now, my bangs are about as grown-out as they’ve been since I was 12. (Sorry, no photo. That’s smack-dab at the start of the awkwardness.)
But I kind of miss them! Mostly when I see pretty photos of girls with bangs on blogs and Pinterest. (Natch.)
I like bangs because they make you look like you have a hairstyle even if the only maintained part of your hair is the front bit. Plus, very rarely do I pull all my hair back off my face, and I think a bit of fringe frames everything nicely. Plus, you get to look like this:
(Ignore the weird face…focus on the bangs.)
Cons: Sometimes my forehead gets greasy and then my bangs get greasy and then I look gross. Plus, when I DO want to pull all my hair back, it requires a lot more bobby pins. Plus, you get to look like this:
Well…ok, maybe I don’t look exactly like any of those photos no matter what. But you get the point.
So you see my dilemma. (Or you’ve stopped reading.)
Can I get some input from girls on both sides of the fringe debate?
