Default Side-swept bangs?

I'm growing out my hair from a shorter cut and right now it looks very blah (it is a bit past my shoulders). It looks pretty much all one length.

I'm thinking of getting some layers put in and maybe some long, side-swept bangs. I figure that way if I don't like the bangs, it won't take that long to grow them out and I can hide them in with the rest of my hair.

My hair has really changed in the last few years, from 3a almost 3b to very limp waves and I don't know what to do with it anymore

Any wavies with long bangs? Would you recommend them or not?

I had them and I loved them, but I don't do very well with maintaining bangs. I'm not always in the mood to blow them out and sweep them to the side, so I eventually give up and let them go into the rest of my hair. Until I decide I want bangs again, and cut them again.

But you're right, if they're long, they're easy to flow with the rest of your hair if you decide you don't want them.

Side swept bangs are good, bad and good.

The good-

I found they really worked well with wavy/curly hair. Obviously you can blow them out, but they also work well with some texture. I found that when I wore them curly they blended in with the rest of my hair and just made it look like I had a bit more oomph on top.

The bad-

They're still bangs. If you blow them out on a humid day, they're going to get all twerpy the minute you walk outside.

The good-

They're super easy to grow out. I've grown out regular blunt cut bangs and side swept bangs. Side swept bangs are a million times easier. There's really no awkward in between phase.

I love mine and I only straighten them if I straighten the rest of my hair. They spiral sometimes and look really cute when I pull my hair into a ponytail and leave my bangs loose. Mine go to my chin when pulled straight and I don't think I would want them cut any shorter.
