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)

Reagan’s Bang Slang

I’m having bang envy right now. I don’t want to cut them, because I’m worried about the summertime sweaty bang. So holding out for fall it is!

In the meantime, I thought I’d show you my bang terminology. I get a little carried away sometimes…

First up..

Block-y Bangs. I call Zooey’s bangs “Blockies” or “Block-y Bangs” because they are a big block of hair right there on your forehead. Don’t worry, this is the kind of block that is sexy and cool.

(ps the above one of Zooey is maybe the greatest photo of hair ever)

Next up..

Shake-y bangs. These are similar to blockies, but they are a little messed up. They have more texture and separation and you can see forehead skin. Kate Moss perfected the shakies.

And another.

Then we have..

Sweepies! These go to the side. They are for the girly-girl. Or the girl growing out her bangs.


Curtain-y bangs. These are parted in the middle and sweep outwards like a curtain, unveiling your forehead for possibly the first time in blocky bang months. I was going to post a photo of my two Queens of curtainies…Alexa Chung and Brigitte Bardot, but I thought that would be a wee predictable. So we are going with random hot girl below! She kills the curtainies! And I miss that length of hair.

There are several bangs not mentioned. Straighties, Betties, Pointies, Featheries, Softies…

I’ll do a part two for them.
