i had been pinning hairstyles with thick bangs for quite awhile and finally decided to take the leap a few months ago. it was a bit funny to me how so many people were surprised by my bangs because i have actually had bangs for several years, but i always wore them swept to the side. rather than my normal trim (i would have my bangs cut at an angle, slightly shorter on the left, longer on the right), i asked my stylist to give my bangs a bit more of a blunt cut with fringe framing both sides of my face. she also cut more face framing layers throughout the length of my hair.
it was exactly what i wanted!
but little did i know that it would actually take a bit of time for my normally semi-bare forehead to get used to wearing full thick bangs! i would last about half a day then have to pin them back! and they made me hotter! so funny, but i’m more used to them now.
my favorite detail about these bangs is that i can wear them several ways: thick & straight, swept to the side, or pinned back.
so have you ever had bangs? did you love them or regret them?
