Bangs: To Have or Not To Have

I go through the same cycle every year. I cut my bangs in the fall and then try and grow them out the following year. Then I cut them, grow them, you get it. I realized that I just love bangs. I love the way they look. They are so soft and feminine and just add that extra oomph. I think some people are truly meant to have bangs and others not. I am not the latter. I try and try to grow them out then give in and chop them. What to do, what to do. I guess since it’s not Fall yet [when I normally cut them] I’ll just keep growing them. See how far I can get. What about you, I’m curious to hear what you think? Do you like bangs or no bangs better?

    Hey Missie, I know this post is from long ago, but hope you might read this. My sister thinks I am better with bangs. I used to have them when I was a little girl. I don’t know if they would truly be good now and if they would suit me. Obviously, if I try and I don’t like it, I can’t put my hair back on! lol. Plus, I like to do my hair and think it is a bit more grown up and suitable for hairstyling not to have bangs. What should I do?

    I have a fivehead (not a forehead like lucky girls do), so I’m all about bangs. I think they balance me out, plus you can always pin them back.

    Aww man! Now I want bangs! I didn’t realize it until now, but I do the exact same thing you do. Cut them around fall time, and then grow them out. I love a full on, straight across, full bang but they are a pain in the butt to maintain!

    I can NEVER decide either. I think if I could cut them on my own and didn’t have to go get them cut every time then I would like them because I could keep them at the length I want. But since I have to get them cut ALL THE TIME to have them at a good length I end up getting annoyed with them and just growing them out and then cutting them again. It is always so hard for me to decide what to do! Haha.

    I love bangs so much. Seriously. But my stylist and I agree that a full bang is just not for me. So I always get mine cut [or cut them myself] angled but not too short. They actually look kind of like “grown out bangs”. Does that even make sense? I don’t know.

    love the way the bangs look on them! i always toy with the decision to get bangs – i love the way they look in all those pictures and i even like them on myself when they’re styled…. but when i have 8 am classes on the daily there is zero chance i’m waking up to blow dry and style my hair….and so i have to stay with a style that air dries the way i want it – you should go for it though – especially if you love them so much!

    I seriously have this debate every year, too! I always wind up cutting them and then I grow them out and then cut them again. I’m about to the point in the cycle where it is time to cut them again. Oh sigh. All those bangs pictures make me want them even more.
