I decided it was time for a change.....

So I gave myself bangs!! :twisted: I just felt like it was time for something different but I'm not brave enough to give up my length yet, so I decided I could 'try' bangs again. I'll try to take pics later with my 2.5 mpx cam-phone (meaning don't expect great quality pics :p), so I don't have any to show now but I will later! I haven't decided what I think yet, but I want you guys to be completely honest and let me know how you like it, even if you liked it better before. I'll probably grow them out again but I just thought it would be a nice change and it is just hair, so it will grow! :wink:

The only thing I don't like is when I'm running and even though I put them back in a barrette, some of them keep flopping down into my sweaty forehead.

    Ok, I had to check which pics those were just to be sure I knew which ones you were referring to. :lol: But no, my hair is not that light as it appears in those pics because I took those with my phone-cam and it made my hair look soooo much lighter than it really is! :?

    My bangs are growing out and I miss the look of them already. I don't miss them on my forehead though! Tough sitch, look better with them, but irritated with them hmm

    I bet yours are cute! Are they middle bangs or side swept?
    2c/3a?
    Low porosity, medium texture.

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

    Side-swept. I look dorky if I push them straight down, and I can make them blend into the rest of my hair easily or push them back with a barrette. :D

    I kind of have to make them smooth though because otherwise they get this really stupid single curl to them, and it just doesn't look right. Almost like a cowlick.

    Thanks ladyd! :)

    Ok, so I added a few pics. I will definitely be growing them out because I don't really like them. I don't hate them, but I feel like they make my face look chubbier than it already is. :?

    btw, they dry curly, but they look like cowlicks, which is why I kind of smooth them out.

    I like them! They make your hair look like it has more volume on the top! I think they just make your face look shorter via the forehead region.
    I love those back and side hair shots your hair has gotten so long since I've been watching your hair pics several years ago! And they're so spirally now!

    Lushaholic,
    Your curls are soooooooooooo pretty! You have the exact hair I want!!!!!!!!!


    BTW--the bangs look awesome. Very stylish! I know what you mean by wanting a change--unfortunately, my hair is too curly and if I tried to wear bangs they would probably stick straight out like Roseanne Rosannadanna!!

    Yay pics! Honestly...I like them. I don't think they make your face look chubby at all. (How funny I always think my face looks too thin :roll: ) To me it looks like the bangs give you a new, interesting look. I hope you enjoy them while they last!

    You guys are so sweet, you just made my night!! :oops: :D I will probably like them a little bit better when they get a tiny bit longer. But ab-star, like you said it makes my face look 'shorter' which for me was 'chubbier'. :lol: Anyway, thanks for the big moral support you guys!! I love you all *mwuuaah* :wink:

    Sorry the lighting on my phone-cam is so off, I never know if my hair is going to look white or orange. :lol:

    I like them a lot too lush! I don't always love straight bangs with curly hair (no offense to anyone who has that, just not my personal preference) but I think you pull it off quite well. I can see what you mean that you'll love them even more when they're a tiny bit longer.

    I think they look fabulous!! I have bangs too but I can never get mine to look as good as yours. I'm jealous. I say definitely keep them.

    I like the bangs! I could never pull off straightish bangs.

    I don't see the chubby thing, but I guess like others said you might see it as shorter=chubby.

    I like the sidesweep to them. It's sexy!

    You did a terrific job cutting bangs! I think they bring out your eyes and accent your cheekbones (which are NOT chubby!). Your face shape is very pretty, and the bangs show it off more. :)

    I wish you could have done my daughter's bangs last week. They came out extremely short.

    Hey, Lush...
    I think this is the first time I looked at your album...so pretty! The bangs are really nice (and your hair is so long and beautiful). I'm growing mine out because they drive me bananas. I never straighten anything anymore, but maybe I should try. Bangs-no bangs---it doesn't look like you can go wrong :)
  • CurlyGina2CurlyGina2 Posts: 1,048Registered Users
    I love them :D
  • sariroosariroo Posts: 1,958Registered Users
    I think they are very pretty and do nothing but accentuate your gorgeous hair. I really don't see that they make your face look fat and that is the honest truth. I'm not a huge fan of bangs (because I can't pull them off) but I love yours!

    They look great! (I have serious hair envy towards your curls, btw. :) ) I'm impressed that you cut them yourself, I love them smoothed down and swept to the side like that, and they certainly don't make your face look fat! If anything, I'll agree that they accentuate your cheekbones - which is a good thing!

    I have "I need a change" days - but I have such fear about changing my hairstyle. I haven't had bangs in 13 years, when my hair was straight (and I was a teenager :lol: ). Plus, I tend to have cowlicks in the front, so I can only imagine what they would do to bangs. I cut my hair short about 7 years ago and the growing out was so painful that I swore I'd never do it again . . . and so, hear I stay, with the same old hair. (Well, I guess that's not entirely true since the curls still feel relatively new. :D )

    Anyways - you have gorgeous hair (well, and are just simply gorgeous!) - so, I would say bangs or no bangs work lovely for you.

    I will try! Work's been busy so I haven't been logging in as much, but I do swing by to read every couple days. Of course I'm always interested to read what's working for you because we've had similar luck in the past :)

    I really like them Lush! I've been toying with the idea of side-swept bangs, but I'm too chicken to cut them myself. :oops: I might have to ask my hair stylists now next time I go.
