There are certainly more important decisions to be made in life, but I think most will agree that choosing whether or not to cut bangs is not an easy one. It’s no secret that I’m swayed by current fashion trends and get tired of the same look. I’ve had a zillion hair changes in just the past few years and I never really sweated the decisions. Bleach the tips platinum? Sure, why not? Cut it short? Yes, please! Try life as a blonde? Sure, let’s do it! But when it came to cutting bangs, I just couldn’t pull the trigger.
I actually bought “fake bangs” from VogueWigs.com just to try them out for a while. My family thought it was soooo creepy that I had bangs in my car, just in case I felt like clipping them in on my way to the office. I often asked other people to try them on to give me perspective and even went so far as putting them on my friend’s dog.
After what seemed like years of deliberating, I finally decided to go for it. It has taken months to get used to the “fringe” that hangs in my eyes and there are days that I feel like I have a hair helmut on! I’m not one to fuss over my hair during the day, but bangs need constant attention or they split, curl up and especially on rainy days, just stick to my forehead. I must say, I was happy to see Taylor Swift in her adorable bangs on The Grammys, but I’m still not sure this is the right look for me.
While at dinner with my “besties” recently, my friend came clean and said, “I’m just not loving this new look on you!” I really appreciate her honesty and she was not being rude or a mean girl, she just said she missed my eyebrows and expressions that are covered by my forehead fringe. SOOOOO, here I am again perplexed: Grow out my bangs? Or keep cutting them? My husband is really over the debate, so I thought I could just vent to y’all reading the blog!
