I didn't want to full-on guano Lazy Loops' thread so...
I'm getting my hair cut tonight and was thinking about having her give me some long bangs (sideswept.) My hair is currently just shy of BSL, 3a, with long layers and just a little thinned at the bottom to reduce the bulk. (My hair is very, VERY thick.)
The last time I had bangs, my hair was about 4-5 inches shorter anyway so it all kind of blended together.
The reason I'm considering bangs is because I feel like the thickness/weight of may hair makes it just kind of hang like curtains on the side of my face. And if I ever straighten it, it ends up just kind of getting tucked behind my ears and looking somewhat Marsha Brady. I just think I (& everyone in general) look better with shorter pieces to frame everything.
But would that look wierd with my hair length? Would it just look like extreme side-shelving?? (And end up being a total nightmare to grow out for God only knows how long??)
So, curlies who have bangs or have had them-- especially with longer hair, I'd love to hear what you think. ...and I will definitely discuss it with my stylist. But I always want to hear what fellow curlies think first.
