I think this is the first time I looked at your album...so pretty! The bangs are really nice (and your hair is so long and beautiful). I'm growing mine out because they drive me bananas. I never straighten anything anymore, but maybe I should try. Bangs-no bangs---it doesn't look like you can go wrong
I think they are very pretty and do nothing but accentuate your gorgeous hair. I really don't see that they make your face look fat and that is the honest truth. I'm not a huge fan of bangs (because I can't pull them off) but I love yours!
They look great! (I have serious hair envy towards your curls, btw. ) I'm impressed that you cut them yourself, I love them smoothed down and swept to the side like that, and they certainly don't make your face look fat! If anything, I'll agree that they accentuate your cheekbones - which is a good thing!
I have "I need a change" days - but I have such fear about changing my hairstyle. I haven't had bangs in 13 years, when my hair was straight (and I was a teenager ). Plus, I tend to have cowlicks in the front, so I can only imagine what they would do to bangs. I cut my hair short about 7 years ago and the growing out was so painful that I swore I'd never do it again . . . and so, hear I stay, with the same old hair. (Well, I guess that's not entirely true since the curls still feel relatively new. )
Anyways - you have gorgeous hair (well, and are just simply gorgeous!) - so, I would say bangs or no bangs work lovely for you.

I will try! Work's been busy so I haven't been logging in as much, but I do swing by to read every couple days. Of course I'm always interested to read what's working for you because we've had similar luck in the past

Thanks Kim! I'm afraid I do have the cowlicks, boy do I have them. But if I just keep trying to smooth them out and force them to go a certain way while they are damp, then I can almost get rid of all the cowlicks. But you definitely inspired me with your bangs!
I should also say that I cut them a little bit shorter today and I actually like them better. I know I said I would be growing them out and would like them better when they are longer but I figured since they were still newly cut, I could go ahead and see if they behaved better by cutting them a tiny bit shorter. I was getting too much of the 'lasagna noodle' thing going on today, which was driving me nuts.
I love the bangs, they look great on you! Once they grow a bit, you'll be able to tuck them behind an ear when they drive you crazy. I got side swept bangs last Nov and like them except when I'm running, then I've got to get them into my ponytail or else I can't concentrate! Do you plop?
