I’ve wanted bangs for a while now. Which is ironic since, as a child, my mom always “recommended” them (read: cut them for me), and I thought they were super-dorky and promised myself that, once I was in full control of my hair’s destiny, I would never have bangs.
Turns out, moms really do know best. When I marched up to my stylist and said, “Gimme Anne Hathaway’s bangs from The Devil Wears Prada,” she didn’t say a word about straight bangs on a curly head (does anyone else suddenly have the urge to sing, “Fat man in a little coat?”). She just took one look at my high forehead and started snipping.
I’m loving them right now. And you know what the best part is? Come closer. It’s a secret: hair grows…and bobby pins are a girl’s best friend.
So whenever I decide to reintroduce my pasty forehead to the world, I can. Just like that.
Feel the power.
P.S. My husband heartily approved of this ensemble (or at least he did before I added the loud belt and shoes, but I didn’t ask after that).
P.P.S. If you usually view my outfits via Five days…5 ways, you can still find me there too! And if you don’t, stop on by and say, “hi!”
