Really cool hair!! Looks wonderful!
I'm growing mine out now, too, and they're driving me crazy! I have these great spirals everywhere today and then the bang mess. They're not long enough to spiral all the way around yet, so I have to keep pinning them back. The rest of my hair is spiralling into long corkscrews today; like banana curls -- I look like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.
If I stuck a great big bow to pin the bangs back, that would just really complete the goofy look.
