To Bang or Not To Bang?







I will admit....I am one of those girls who is always wanting to change her hairstyle. I dont stick with one regular color...which I guess would be my natural color. (I havent seen that in years!) I go from black....to buxom blonde highlights....from auburn to fire engine red. Lately though, I have been keeping one aspect of my hair the same....my bangs! I had them lite and somewhat feathered....swept aside.....and then a thicker cut bang. I did the thicker cut myself.....looked like I cut them with a broken beer bottle. Once they were fixed.....by a professional....I grew to love them. I have since wanted to grow my bangs out to have a "mary-kate olsen' kind of ...parted down the middle bohemian hair cut. I go both ways and am always changing my mind. One more problem...I have naturally curly hair too.....so I get a gheri curl thing atop my head when I dont straighten my hair. I guess the question I'm asking is......do you LOVE or HATE bangs....and why?

Love bangs...they can change the whole face and if they're long..can still be pulled back. I'm all for 'em!

I BANG. I've had bangs for the past year and love them so much. I always switch back and forth between dark brown hair and then when I can afford it I get blonde highlights, as of now it is dark brown. Currently I have the Mia Wallace hair cut from Pulp Fiction, love it!

I love my straight bangs because it reminds me of being a child, as that was my hairstyle when I was little. Plus people stay I look younger, which is always a compliment. I think the only drawback is having to go and get them cut after like two months.

i have bangs cuz they set my eyes off and make my face more interesting (or at least that is my hope!). it is sure a pain to grow them out, so mine are here to stay!

Love bangs! I have heavy bangs now (was doing the whispy side-swept for a while). I had the thick bangs cut when I had 3 inches cut off the main length for a shoulder-length bob. I love them! My hair is curly too, so when I don't feel like straightening my hair, the bangs get swept aside with a cute clip or some plain ol' bobby pins.

I love the bangs, but that is because I have a huge forehead so I have to hide them! Im getting ready to do the thick bang myself. When I don't have a bang and my hair is all layered long- it looks horrid. Right now I have the side sweapt bang rocking.

In New Zealand we call it a fringe but bangs they are. I love them and like you, change my hairstyle quite a lot. I have had bangs from time to time but they're growing out now but now that I see your pics, I'm considering it again. What a dilemma!

I have naturally curly hair, so I don't do bangs. I tried to get my hair straightened once. I spent $200 but my hair was curly again three days later :-P

How strange it seems calling it bangs! It's a fringe here in England! I love fringes but still getting used to them on me... :)

I love bangs...you can style your hair in so many different ways, that is just great!

Quirks said...

yep - a fringe for me too :D. I had them when i was little and kinda have one now, at least it feels like i do. I've been toying with the idea of getting a proper one, but still not sure. They are awesome on the right person.

I used to wear bangs a lot when I was younger! I've been thinking about cutting some recently, they look good with long hair!!
