Warning: This post is about my hair. If you want to read something exciting, I suggest leaving now. With that said, I'd love some feedback.
I get bored with my hair often. I like to change it up as much as I can even though it probably doesn't seem that way since I tend to just wear it the same way. Right now I'm trying to grow it out after having it relatively short for the past couple of years. But in the meantime I'm getting antsy and keep remembering one of my favorite haircuts:Kidding! But really, this is one of my favorites:That's me on the right, of course. That's my sister Ali on the left and she hadn't slept in about 36 hours in this shot. That made for a funny time:) But anyway, it's fun to have cute, flippy hair and it's also a lot easier when it comes to drying it every day. Oh yes, every day because I, despite what you will see in 99% of the pictures of me, have naturally curly hair. Not as curly as Ali's (although the picture above is a bad representation of her hair bc she straightened it that day. She has hott hair. It's super curly and pretty.) ANYWAY...
So, part of me wants to go and get my hair cut shorter and flippy again, but then the other part of me says, "No! Don't do it! You've let it grow out for a year now! Keep it up, sista!" But I'm borrrreeddd with it. So....recently I have been considering getting bangs again.
I can already hear Steve, my hair dude, saying to me gently, "Scarlet, you know you don't have straight hair, right?" But besides that, I have another reason that keeps me from getting bangs sometimes: my forehead is not that big. Tyra Banks right now is thinking, "Girl! You should be glad you don't have a big forehead!" and I am, but if you think about it (and I obviously have), the length of bangs I would get would be shorter than those someone with a larger forehead would get. And the shorter hair is, the more likely it is to curl when faced with the elements (rain, snow, humidity, etc.) I don't want to end up looking like this:
Because, as ADORABLE as I am in this picture, I don't think curly-q bangs are quite the look I'm going for. (Although, please note the coffee cup in front of me. Loves it. This is my 4th birthday when I crawled under the table when they started singing to me.)
Now, I've given the cons to getting bangs so it's time for the pros. Naturally, the hair that would be cut as bangs naturally falls foreward. Right now those pieces are about as long as to my mouth so the chopping wouldn't be too incredibly drastic or upsetting. Another pro is that I tend to bobby pin those pieces to the side anyway so what difference does it make if they're shorter or not? It might be fun to have the option of wearing them as bangs sometimes. Also, my hair grows pretty fast, I think. Those front pieces were cut to the tip of my nose about a month or so ago and have seemed to grow about 1.5 inches already. This is my hair today:
Maybe not the best picture to choose, but that's me second from the right. I think it shows both the length of my hair and my tendency to pin the front to the side. Also, we're all really hott here (Halloween 2006.)
SO, WHAT SHOULD I DO? I'm afraid if I go to just get a trim I'll end up getting it cut much shorter, but are bangs too risky?
P.S. Anyone who actually read this? Thanks.
