    Darker looks so dramatic on you! I love those side swept bangs! Did you just do bangs longer than if you were going to wear them normally or are they cut at an angle?
    I love the highlights too. I guess you can cancel that appt now!
    2c/3a?
    Low porosity, medium texture.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    It looks fantastic!
    Brown really makes your eyes standout- they're very pretty.

    Brio:

    Okay I cut the bangs last evening. Just pull a triangular section taught to about my nose & cut at an angle. I'm sure it's not perfectly straight but oh well.

    Then today I used Revolon colorstay in plain old "medium brown". I only left it on about 10-15 instead of the recommended 25 because my hair is VERY porous. I dried my bangs & top, then highlighted w/ "styliste" (Loreal I think) in the toffee color for medium to dark brown hair. I used the skinny brush & did about 6 strands all through the bang area. LEft on the whole 30 mins.

    Wha la! ;) HTH,

    p.s. DH came home & loves it!

    Wow it looks great. I love the cut with the bangs. The color looks great on you. You are just beautiful!
  • KurleeKurlee Posts: 1,354Registered Users
    Looks good. I think I like the dark better than the blond. Cute cut too. Like the length. It is kinda what I usually have I think.
    Love the bangs too. How did you get them cut? Are they all one length or angled or?

    Really pretty :)

    Do you have to straighten your bangs or can you get them to do that on their own? I want side swept bangs but I think I might be too lazy to make em look good :P

    I love the color on you. It looks great like I thought it would. :)

    Anothersunnyday: It's been very easy. I just comb them over to the side & squirt a little hairspray on it. Then I just diffuse them dry - kinda using my fingers to guide them to the side :) HTH!

    Holy cow-that is stunning :P ! And agree with everyone about the bangs!!
    Now I want bangs. How do you style/keep them like that?
