Took the Bang Plunge: What Do You Think?

Hey Everyone!  

So I was getting annoyed with the side bangs and decided to go for the real deal. 

Two things I can tell you thus far:

1) I'm glad I got them in the winter because whenever my forehead sweats, the bangs start to curl and that is annoying.

2) I don't know how long I'll keep these as it totally requires a time commitment and in the mornings I'd rather be getting my yoga on that worrying about my hair.

Nonetheless though, when they look nice, they'r a fun change, but I think I'll be growing them out for summer.  With a sweaty forehead like mine, they just won't work.

What do you guys think? It's a shocker for me. LOL. 

Full Bangs for Winter

Looks good on you!  I did the straight bang for a while, but started to have problems with them parting themselves in awkward places.  I have reverted back to the side bang since; however they are shorter (than my previous side bang) to cover a little more on my forehead because I did like that aspect.  The side thing works for me since my bangs seem to want to go in some direction, if I don't choose, they will! (dun dun dunnn)

Hey Tracy! They look great! I just recently cut bangs myself and feel you on the whole time commitment and sweaty forehead thing. My best advice for those new to bangs is to invest in a good dry shampoo. That way in the morning, when you don't want to wash your hair everyday and your bangs are greasy, you can just apply some dry shampoo (I like the powder Alterna makes as well as the spray by Batiste) to the roots and blow dry them with a flat paddle brush. Brush them from one side to the other, angling heat from the dryer down the hair shaft. This gives your bangs a straight look and doesn't give them that dated 90s bang "pouf". Stick with them for a bit, give them a chance ;)

ithink that the bangs look great.......for winter. Honestly, in the summer even if you pin them back or push them to the side, they are SUCH a hassle that i grew mine out. And i think that this will happen with you too. sweat, weather, and the ordeal of pinning them back or straightening them gets to be too much. but, i think they look great:)

Hi Tracy- First of all - I think the bangs look very cute; however, as someone who used to have them - I will tell you now it is a full-time hair commitment. For those of us who do not have perfectly straight hair you have to be very cognizant about straightening your bangs...especially if they are across your forehead.  I recommend pinning them up during sports activities where you are more likely to perspire. One thing to note is that since there is constant contact with your forehead, your bangs are more likely to get oily faster than the rest of your hair. A quick tip if this happens is to just wash your bangs & blow-dry if you don't feel like washing all your hair.  Last but not least, if you want to add a little bit of volume to your bangs, I wouldn't recommend using the flat-iron on them completely. I would use a smaller round brush and roll the bangs out when blow-drying (gives it a little volume right at the root so bangs don't look stuck to your forehead).  It's definitely not easy to have bangs, but if you are able to put up with styling them - then more power to you! :)
