Like every ill-fated woman, I have horror stories about my hair when I was growing up(ish) and a majority of them is around the same idea: trying to grow out my bangs for nearly 5 years after I chopped them off in senior year high school because bangs were about to be ‘in’ and I was one of the first girls in the school to try the new do. Honestly for the first couple of months it was indeed cool, I was the “girl with bangs” but after that it was an emotional roller coaster of ups and downs, I’m going to grow it outs and god it looks awful I have to cut it agains and at the end, when I did manage to grow them, I promised myself that I’d never do it again. And just like every other superficial promise I made to myself, I’m thinking about breaking it now.
Why now you ask? Because what Alexa Chung or Zooey Deschanel couldn’t do all these time, Felicity Jones and a parade of bloggers and models are doing it. The bang is back. Personal opinion: I don’t like them when they’re too short, cut too straight and I prefer bangs with short or mid length bobs, not with super long hair.
