need some help with getting bangs

So, I am an Irish-Russian woman with freaking thick, curly hair. All of my hair dressers since 2001 have said that I am not allowed to have bangs. This is a problem because the biggest part of my hair is the bang area and my face just looks so much better with bangs. But, now I am having terrible headaches. Since I usually pull my hair back in a pony tail (to get away from my annoyingly long bangs) the pressure from the pony is making the headaches worse. I've had knock down , drag out fights with my hair dressers to try to get them to give me bangs and they keep saying I may not have them. So, how would you deal with this issue? Can anyone give me some advice in how to have this conversation with my stylist?? I am uploading a picture of myself so you can see what I am working with. My hair is freshly washed it will look better tomorrow after I have slept on it. Thanks!!

I think it would be best if you took in a picture of the curly-bangs you want and go to a curly specialist. Be adamant that you want your hair just like the picture.

I've seen some good looking ones that weren't straightened. Let me see if I can find pics

Also look through the picture threads (also in 3b) I'm sure there's some great examples on this site.

I think it's more the stylists problem that they don't know how to give you bangs, so if they try to convince you not to get them then I'd go to someone else.

I had a stylist who tried to convince me that I didn't look good with cool-toned hair just because she wasn't good at colortheory and didn't know how to cancel the red she had put in my hair (or she was just lazy). My natural hair is very dark and cool-toned and it looks so much better on me than red-tones.
