Default I decided it was time for a change.....

So I gave myself bangs!! I just felt like it was time for something different but I'm not brave enough to give up my length yet, so I decided I could 'try' bangs again. I'll try to take pics later with my 2.5 mpx cam-phone (meaning don't expect great quality pics ), so I don't have any to show now but I will later! I haven't decided what I think yet, but I want you guys to be completely honest and let me know how you like it, even if you liked it better before. I'll probably grow them out again but I just thought it would be a nice change and it is just hair, so it will grow!

The only thing I don't like is when I'm running and even though I put them back in a barrette, some of them keep flopping down into my sweaty forehead.

Can't wait to see how your experiment turned out.

By the way - just looked at your pics for the first time - your hair is gorgeous! Is the 1st one (winter) your natural color? Just wondering.

Ok, I had to check which pics those were just to be sure I knew which ones you were referring to. But no, my hair is not that light as it appears in those pics because I took those with my phone-cam and it made my hair look soooo much lighter than it really is!

My bangs are growing out and I miss the look of them already. I don't miss them on my forehead though! Tough sitch, look better with them, but irritated with them hmm

I bet yours are cute! Are they middle bangs or side swept?

Side-swept. I look dorky if I push them straight down, and I can make them blend into the rest of my hair easily or push them back with a barrette.

I kind of have to make them smooth though because otherwise they get this really stupid single curl to them, and it just doesn't look right. Almost like a cowlick.

I am pretty sure it looks really nice on you. Can't wait to see the pics.
I love bangs but my hair is way too curly for that!

Thanks ladyd!

Ok, so I added a few pics. I will definitely be growing them out because I don't really like them. I don't hate them, but I feel like they make my face look chubbier than it already is.

btw, they dry curly, but they look like cowlicks, which is why I kind of smooth them out.

I like them! They make your hair look like it has more volume on the top! I think they just make your face look shorter via the forehead region.
I love those back and side hair shots your hair has gotten so long since I've been watching your hair pics several years ago! And they're so spirally now!

Lushaholic,
Your curls are soooooooooooo pretty! You have the exact hair I want!!!!!!!!!


BTW--the bangs look awesome. Very stylish! I know what you mean by wanting a change--unfortunately, my hair is too curly and if I tried to wear bangs they would probably stick straight out like Roseanne Rosannadanna!!

Yay pics! Honestly...I like them. I don't think they make your face look chubby at all. (How funny I always think my face looks too thin ) To me it looks like the bangs give you a new, interesting look. I hope you enjoy them while they last!

You guys are so sweet, you just made my night!! I will probably like them a little bit better when they get a tiny bit longer. But ab-star, like you said it makes my face look 'shorter' which for me was 'chubbier'. Anyway, thanks for the big moral support you guys!! I love you all *mwuuaah*

And tooj, we can trade hair any day lady!

Sorry the lighting on my phone-cam is so off, I never know if my hair is going to look white or orange.

I like them a lot too lush! I don't always love straight bangs with curly hair (no offense to anyone who has that, just not my personal preference) but I think you pull it off quite well. I can see what you mean that you'll love them even more when they're a tiny bit longer.

I think they look fabulous!! I have bangs too but I can never get mine to look as good as yours. I'm jealous. I say definitely keep them.
