The no longer bangs-bangs.

Bangs just scream fall to me. These days it’s like mine are all grown up. Where they were once short, blunt and to my brows, they are now long, blendy and past my chin. They do what they’re told and they stay out of my way. They give me a little shape around my face, part easily from center to left or right, and go back into a pony with no pins. So, why am I dying to cut a short little fringe again?

I cut my bangs short in January of 2011, and aside from texturizing them, they haven’t been cut since. That’s pretty slow growing, wouldn’t you say? I guess that’s where my hesitation comes from.

Do you vote bangs or no bangs for me?

PS bang slang. (I’d go shakies or curtainies)

    I say “Go for the Bangs”!!
    It took me two years to grow my bangs out and once they were long, I either pinned them back or was constantly tucking them behind my ears. I looooove the look of long bangs but they weren’t very practical for me even after all that work. In fact, I discovered your blog after getting them hacked off and struggling to once again control them while blowdrying my hair. Your “vertical brush” tip saved my styling life Ü so Thank You!

    No! I’m growing out bangs I cut last winter and it’s hell! Plus I like your natural texture w/out bangs, it’s very hippie, beachy <3

    I wouldn’t. I love your long bangs. It’s tempting in the fall but think about spring when you’ll have to grow them out again. Mine are almost long enough to go back in my pony tail, so I’m also writing this to convince myself not to give in to the temptation :)

    Hmmm, such a tough decision. I always want bangs this time of year too! I thought I wanted bangs when I came to you for a haircut and I have to say I’m glad I didn’t get them. I hate having to style them all the time. I like the way yours look grown out..so I guess I’m a No then :)

    I’m going to say go with the bangs! I just cut in my own 2 weeks ago after watching a bazillion youtube videos etc. (I also had grown-out ones from February, so the general shape was there) and they turned out pretty good :) I’d say you’d call them shakies. Let us know how you do it and some maintenance tips. I’d love to know how to cut the hair around the bangs so that when I tie my hair up there are droppy-downy bits either side :)

    I say no bangs. Only because I always get the bang itch and then regret it 2 months later!

    I love bangs!! Do it !! You can always grow them out again? And isn’t that the fun in it ? So many different stages and mini bang trims to keep you occupied while you leave the rest alone!? Go for the bangs!

    Shakies! They would look amazing on you. And as for the growing out, it’s not that bad. When you decide you don’t want bangs anymore they can grow out as sweepies then face framing layers. Growing out bangs is a lot easier to grow out gracefully then a pixie, trust me :)

    I’m glad it’s not just me who itches for bangs this time of year… I’ve actually been on the verge of calling you all week to see if you’ll cut some for me. I have the same hesitations that you mentioned, but they’re such a fun, easy change. I LOVE how you look with bangs- gorgeous on you. I say go for it! Now let me ask you, if I were to cut bangs, what kind would you suggest for me? I trust your expert opinion and am curious to hear your thoughts.

    For years my hair was shaped but all pretty well the same length. Then after thinking about it for ages, I got my first short bangs last March. I love them but it is harder to just get up and go. I find they take more work but I don’t mind because I like the way they look. You’ve got gorgeous hair so whatever you decide will look good, though I’d say go for the short bangs!

    I vote bangs!! Although I totally agree your hair is gorgeous now…it’ll be gorgeous and new and fresh with bangs. Plus, I just had bangs cut and need your tips again. Your bang tutorial was so helpful but I’m betting you’ve got even more ideas now.

    Yes to see something new but mostly no since it took forever to grow them out!

    I’m PRO-bangs!

    The growing out process is fun. Because you can slowly ease them into the rest of your hair and become “sweepies”. They’ll still look fine growing out – or – its an opportunity to wear great headbands and do some sweet french braids in front to pin them out of your face.

    I’m a hairstylist and just went through the same bang-dilemma! I have been growing mine out for the last year, knowing I can always cut them because I love my “bangs”. I say, you’re a hairstylist, just do it!!

    I think you should leave your bangs the way they are & let them grow! I know I like having bangs..for a while, then when they’re growing back out, I regret cutting them! So I say NO, leave them alone!

    oh girl, before I really hated BANGS because it irritates me in rough times and feels like my head is aching whenever I cannot clip it or put a hairpin on it. but all my negative thoughts about BANGS have changed, Thanks to Pinup Salon . and now, and no, I am very satisfied with my BANGS and all my friends love it. You too, just be yourself and follow your heart and go for BANGS! :)
