Okay I cut the bangs last evening. Just pull a triangular section taught to about my nose & cut at an angle. I'm sure it's not perfectly straight but oh well.
Then today I used Revolon colorstay in plain old "medium brown". I only left it on about 10-15 instead of the recommended 25 because my hair is VERY porous. I dried my bangs & top, then highlighted w/ "styliste" (Loreal I think) in the toffee color for medium to dark brown hair. I used the skinny brush & did about 6 strands all through the bang area. LEft on the whole 30 mins.
p.s. DH came home & loves it!
