A couple visits ago to the salon I did something crazy. I got bangs. I haven't had bangs in over 10 years. I have a tiny forehead and for me to have bangs I don't get the option to pull them back, they just end up to short. My hair girl wasn't sure but when I showed her the picture of Reese Witherspoon in the yellow Nina Ricci dress with her cute bangs she said " You both have the same little faces, OK, I'll do it" I did initially like them but I got mixed reactions for sure. The husband said 'Wow you hair is really straight this time'. I have no idea what he meant by that. My hair is straight and always straight after a trip to the salon. My best dance friends started to pull away in their car because they didn't recognize me. The girls I know in the under 18 set all seemed to like them. But my best gay friend and my style friend didn't say anything. At all. So the bangs aren't a big winner. I do like that I tried them and I'm hit and miss whether I like them in pictures of me.
So now I'm growing them back out which considering the bangs are about 10 inches shorter then the rest of my hair is going to take awhile. Be being a planner have come up with a plan to get me through it. I know the worst part will be the in between because at the gym and at dance I always wear my hair pulled back and up. I can't stand my hair in my face. I'm always amazed by the girls who have a big chunk of hair in their eyes. The plan is grippy headbands when they are long enough to go back. After my dance recital I will get the rest of my hair cut to start blending them in since they should be to my nose by then. I hope. I think once I get the blend going on I'll be able to convince them to tuck and hide them away better. OK, so it's not a great plan and it is just hair. But a plan none the less.
