A Bang Blog


As I've stated in my previous post, I've recently made the transition to bangs. Seeing as I've only had a couple other hair styles in my 23 (almost 24) years of life other than "long", this decision was a big deal. I actually made the decision very impulsively, and although I don't regret it, it's brought up some hair-raising questions. (HA!)

First of all, how do you know when your bangs look dumb? I've noticed that when it rains my hair does this weird wavy flippy thing, and my bangs kind of run amok. I honestly can't tell if my bangs just look stupid, or the wave adds a cool edginess. I really don't want my bangs to look like O'Brien's bangs in Downton Abbey.

I also wonder what my bangs say to the world. Do they say, I think I'm cooler than you? Or do they say I thought maybe bangs would be a good idea? Or maybe they look like I'm trying to hard? Because I don't have a lot of experience with hairstyles, I think about these things.

Also, I think I've instigated some headaches due to dude-bro/Justin Beiber like hair flippage. Sometimes I have to sort of flip my head back to get my bangs out of my eye, and I swear it's caused me to take some Advil.

Today I thought about Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally and how many hair-do's she had to go through. Did Sally Albright ever wonder what her hair was saying to the world, or was she just trying to be trendy? She rocked bangs, so why can't I?

Stay tuned.
