It's all about the hair

Let me start by saying this.... I need an update. I've been working on this gradually since 2009 but I've now come to the most dramatic portion- MY HAIR. I need to tell you that this is  HUGE thing for me because my hair is completely who I am. I had a horrendous hair cut when I was younger that scarred me from ever having short hair EVER again, so my hair is and always will be long. It's hard to mix things up with long hair sometimes, unless you've got


There it is. That's what I've been contemplating for the last little bit. I found the CUTEST style ever the other day on A Beautiful Mess. I LOOOVE Elsie's hair!!! Her bangs are completely rocking my world. (okay, basically her entire style!!!! *sigh*) So now the decision remains.... can I pull the bangs off?

Exhibit A: This is me with straight hair (please excuse the funky pose - it's the best straight hair pic I've got handy). Notice the roundness of the face - I don't want the bangs to accentuate any of the chipmunkness that is my cheeks.
Exhibit B: My curly hair. I'm a tad worried that the bangs with my curls might look a bit...uh, ferocious... because of how short they'll be.

Below is Elsie.... Oh the foxiness is KILLING ME!!!

If the full bang thing just isn't right, than I think I'm gonna go for a cute side-swept thing...

What's the verdict? ANY feedback given would be appreciated.... Oh decisions, decisions.



  1. Side bangs! Definitely! I've tried them before. My hair hated them. lol

  2. I think you could pull off both. Just don't do them really full so you could sweep them on some days and straight full on others. I think you've been wanting them so Go for it!!!

  3. I LOVE bangs. I think they are very modern and versatile, however I have slightly curly hair and on the days I decide to wear my hair curly I never know what to do with my bangs. I always have to in them back. So something to consider...

  4. what did you decide? You need to post a new picture you beauty!
