I’m constantly tempted to get bangs. I think a lot of girls face this dilemma for some reason. When it’s time for a new haircut, it’s always bangs or no bangs?
I happen to like baby bangs, which are usually a little too drastic for most people to want to try. But I think they’re really cute, artsy, and defining all in one. Here are some photos I managed to find to illustrate my point:
(I really wanted to find a picture of Susan May Pratt as Maureen Cummings in Center Stage because hers is the haircut that inspired me in the first place, but a good photo of her doesn’t seem to exist online.)
Baby bangs seem to work well with long, dark hair, which I have.
They also seem to look good on women with small faces and large, pretty eyes, which I don’t have.
(But doesn’t any haircut look better if you have a small face and large, pretty eyes? Curses to those women.)
I actually used to have baby bangs back when Josh and I started dating, and I loved them. I realize I’m committing some kind of confidence suicide posting a picture of myself right after a bunch of gorgeous celebrities, but here it is:
The problem is, Josh hates bangs, which is a sentiment a lot of guys seem to share for some reason. Especially baby bangs. And what’s the point of having a haircut that your husband doesn’t like?
There is no point. So no bangs it is.
