Ever since I was pregnant, I've wanted bangs.
I felt so round and self-conscious though, that I decided it would be best to wait until after Greyer was born before making another drastic physical change.
I mean, what if I hated it?
Or what if I looked like an eight year-old?!
(I think I was eight the last time I had bangs.)
Well, Ian, my mom, and my sister convinced me to do it even though everyone else advised against it.
I mean, bangs are controversial things here in blogland!
I just felt like I've had the same hair since I was thirteen.
Because I have.
But Ian didn't want me to cut my length (nor did I), so bangs seemed to be the best option because blonde isn't a good look for me either.
So, I guess my conclusion on the whole bangs thing is that I really like them.
Not because I think they make me look really pretty or anything, but because I was just tired of looking at the same old thing in the mirror every day for the past 2,920 (that's how many days it's been since I was thirteen. seems like it should be more...).
These pictures were taken the day I got them cut and since then have had more time to play around with them. I definitely like them better with my hair curled. I kind of feel like I look like I'm wearing a wig with it straight like that ^^
Anyway, how do you feel about bangs?
Have you been contemplating them for yourself at all?
