I consider the decision on whether or not to get bangs a highly important choice in my life at the moment.
I have it rough. I know.
I have a hair appointment coming up next week and I’m beginning to feel the pressure to decide what I want done.
It’s the same story nearly every time I get my hair cut (which is usually only once or twice per year): should I get bangs?
The past few times I have gone in I have come close. But I chickened out right at the end and had my stylist do long, side-swept bangs. Yeah, they’re technically bangs, but wussy bangs, in my opinion!
When I say bangs, I am talking about those full on, straight across, dramatic bangs ala Zooey Deschanel and Emma Stone (who happens to have my dream hair resting on her adorable head).
Problem is, those lovely ladies don’t have an uber round face, like I do. Bleh.
In addition to the do-these-bangs-make-my-face-look-even-fatter conundrum, I worry about the time and upkeep that bangs require.
I feel that I should stop here and tell you a little bit about my hair: I love my color (red) and, other than highlights, have never colored it; it’s incredibly thick, naturally curly, and super frizzy.
My straightener is my best friend!
Much to my husband’s chagrin, I am a pony tail girl. Sure, I wear my hair down quite a bit (only after using said straightener or scrunching curls), but I tend to spend little time on my hair in general.
I know that if I get bangs, unless I want to sport headbands everyday, I’m going to have to put some work into doing my hair.
I have a few days to decide if I have it in me.
Oh, and to ogle more celeb photos.
