I Got Bangs

I've been trying to grow my hair out for the longest time, but it never gets past the shoulder before I go in for a trim.  Hoping, wishing, and praying that the person holding the scissors can work some magic and make it look somewhat flattering.

Pictures don't help.  Words are not heeded.  They do what they want and I leave the salon never fully satisfied or confident.  My hair has been in a ponytail for months, or covered up with hats and beanies.  The ends are very frayed.  My roots are growing out so my hair is a muddied brown.  Tired of my ponytail, I took the only option available to me.  Which was to get bangs.

And yet, with this simple change.  I feel renewed.

At church, two people reintroduced themselves to me.  I said, "We've met before. From _______."  They still look confused so I say, "I got bangs."  They say, "Oh!  You look like a different person.  I mean I thought you looked familiar but..."

Not sure whether they are actually flattering or not.  But I needed a change.  Oh!  I almost forgot, the best part of bangs, in my opinion, is that I don't have to do my brows anymore!  I really hate doing eyebrows.  They are so difficult to get even.  Do you have any plans for a new hairstyle or color this spring?


  1. Omg you're so adorable!!! I think your hair looks FAB. I'm forever caught in the limbo of bangs or no bangs, so I'm impressed that you took the plunge. :) There's nothing quite like that "renewed" feeling you can get from a new haircut. Also, those glasses are so cute on you!

  3. I'm in a growing out phase right now, after getting side bangs awhile back, but in a few months, who knows? Haha
