Beware of the Bangs

I tend to think that getting bangs is a genius idea, until I get them. When I was in college I studied abroad in London, before I left I wanted to get bangs and ended up with the shortest pieces of hair I’ve ever seen hanging down onto my forehead. Eek! Anyway, I just got bangs again over the weekend. Although they are oh so much better then the last time they are still oh so annoying. Here are some of my immediate problems with them.

1. When you wake up in the morning, you look a lot like Harry from Dumb and Dumber and not anything like this model with beautifully groomed bangs.


2. As soon as you step out of your house this weird bang separation thing happens. Obviously, you don’t notice this and no one tells you until you happen to see yourself in a mirror or on TMZ.


3. You think that the solution to the weird separation thing is to get thicker bangs. No, that is not the solution because this will happen.


4. You never, ever look like this not matter how many times you show the person cutting your hair this photo. I’m convinced this is somehow Photoshopped.


In closing, bangs are kind of terrible but kind of awesome. I’m sure I will embrace them for a couple of months and then begin to grow them out. In two years I will get bangs again and forget how many headbands I purchased this time. Such is life!



  1. I am SO in the same place. I love my bangs, except for all the reasons you mention above…and then I love them and then I hate them. And then I love them. And then I hate them. 😉
