Bang Bang

Tonight I had my bangs restyled by my good friend Wyndie.  What do you think?

I do prefer myself with bangs, but I was getting tired of my really thick, bowl-cut style forehead-carpet.  So I cut and pasted pictures of movie stars on the Internet whose bangs I liked, printed them out, and showed them to Wyndie last week.

"I can do that," she said.  I knew she could!

This is the finished project.  I like them a lot!

We moved the part to the right side.  My part has been down the center since 8th grade! 

I love how it seems to make the silver in my hair more visible.

The real test, of course, will be when I wash my hair and have to style it myself for the first few times.  I have no talent for hair.  None!  That's why I wear it long and straight.  No talent required.

I'm going to print out these pictures and hang them by the mirror, so I can see what the bangs are supposed to look like while I work on them!

Wyndie, Sarah, Jacob, and Sarah's friend Emmi all expressed approval of my new look.  My brutally honest son Dylan said, "Mom, from the front you look like a boy."

Hmmm...  Maybe he's right? 

While we were at it, I asked Wyndie to give me a trim.  My hair was long enough to sit on, but it was getting pretty straggly at the ends.

Wyndie always cringes when I ask her to do it, but she took off about 6 inches.  I'm happy with it.  It's still plenty long (although I feel lighter!), but now it looks fuller.

The truth now: what do you think?

The truth? I love it!!! I think that's a great idea to keep pictures so you can recreate it. But with a good cut I would think it would be easy to do now. And a little thing like parting on one side, I think can make a big difference. I wish I had an Wyndie in my life!
You look beautiful.

love the look, but i think you should go brave and cut it short. maybe shoulder length, i dont think i have every seen it short or mid length or long always has been really really really long. i do love the look and especially the bangs!
