BANGS!!!


I have this crazy itch in my fingers to reach for the scissors and cut myself a fringe again!

Aaaaaa! 
It's probably since my hair is now a nice even length and all the signs of y previous bangs are extinct. I realised it is at least four years already since I started growing out my bangs for the last time. I had them on-off for some six-seven years always a couple of years at a time and a little less in between, always cutting them back just when they could be considered gone...

I also just realised I haven't had my hair cut in bangs in my real colour, ever, just when I was blonde. Well, apart from my kiddo years in the early eighties, with a thick fringe in the front.

So, now I'm almost with the scissors in my hands, trying to decide weather to DO IT DO IT NOW or give it a go with a new pair of clip on bangs instead. Both have their advantages. Hmmmmm....

That bottom right picture of you with very blonde bangs is what inspired me to cut mine short, it's also the first time I found your blog! Ahhh nostalgia :P

I've been thinking about a fringe for some time now, but I've just managed to grow it out! :--( I want bangs! :D

I have had that same itch - I want bangs too! But I'm also waiting for my hair to grow a little longer... I keep rolling a faux one every day, anyway ;) Bangs look great on you, you totally should do it. And give amazing hair tips for when I've cut bangs too. Hee hee :)

Anna mennä! ! :D Hiukset kasvavat nopeasti. Olet niin tyylikäs ja kaunis, että sinulle sopii malli kuin malli.

I'm exactly the same. As soon as I grow all the layers out I'm itching to have them back. I'm actually at the growing out stage now. You should really consider going back to blonde, it suits you

Don't do it ! A fringe is always beautiful the first days. But then... you have to wash it really often, it takes a lot of time to taking care of it. Just remember why you let it go. If you let it go for those reasons :)

I just got bangs for the first time ever and love it! It is definitely a bit more of a challenge to style but I think it is worth it! I'd say if you've had them before and loved it you should go for it!!! :)

Oh how I would love to wear bangs again! But I just can't carry them off any more.
Sigh

I do remember those photos from your blog. Your blog is probably the one I have been reading the longest. I had bangs 6 years and then I grew them out, just to realise that bangs is pretty much the only thing about my hair that suits me. So now, I am going to stick with them.

Same with me, thinking about bangs every now and then and often like it on others (your inspiring picture collection is fab!), but at the same time I fear to look a little bit too girlish, which isn't bad in principle, but determines style a bit. I like the more ladyesque look of a bangsfree haircut, too!
So this is why I kept the scissors in the cupboard so far...

Cutting bangs would be some definite. That's why I love the "rat" concept. (although mine is a bit too big for my little head) You can change every day : more fun and no pressure in case of bad hair day.
Contrary to other comments, I prefer your hair colour now, more natural, and, so, more in adequation with your make-up and skincare routine ;-)

Just do it ;) kuvista näkee et sopii sulle! Ja jos et tykkääkkään niin kyllä tukka kasvaa nopeasti takaisin ja sä osaat kaikki hiusniksit niin osaat peittää välivaiheet :)
