Hair Story: Bangs Edition

I have been going back and forth between getting bangs again or not. I have just fully grown out my old straight across bangs. So it has been about a year since I had them last. My relationship with bangs is complicated I love them and hate them. I have had them at least 3 times now. When they are really good they are great. But when something goes wrong it goes really wrong. The first time I got bangs they were perfect. Then I got them trimmed. When they were trimmed the hair stylist curved them in the middle. Like little girl bangs. I don't think little girls even get bangs like that anymore. I was devastated. The last time I got them I really liked them but the sides were never quite right. I do think that I really want them again though.

 Happy 5 Year Anniversary to my love, Steve.

What do you think? My hair has gotten really long now. So I am thinking a trim and bangs. Here are a few examples of looks I love. (1,2,3,4,5) I would love some feedback.

P.S. Snowpocalypse is more like Icepocalypse today. And I am starting to to stir crazy. Also today is my anniversary and I will not be able to see Steve. Lame. Hopefully, we will get some real snow if it is going to be like this.



  1. Happy anniversary! I think bangs completely suit you. Why not meet in the middle and get side-swept bangs? Then you can choose. I learned the hard way that straight across bangs don't work for me (curly hair problems), but side bangs have been the best thing since sliced bread. But goodness gracious, I swear God gave you guys the best hair of any couple I know. :D

  2. I have a love/hate relationship with bangs too - I've just gone and gotten full straight across bangs again last week but like you I don't love them as much as the very first time I got them done....they can me a hassle to style too. I love the bangs in the first photo.....I say go for it!

  3. you look so cute with bangs! go for it :)
