When I think of a whimsical person, I picture fairy wings, peace signs, hippy skirts, and Dharma. I wouldn't say I'm especially whimsical....I mean, lots of people decide to drive to New Orleans one afternoon and sleep in their cars in the Walmart parking lot, roller-blade five miles to a friend's house just because, or plastic wrap the school bathroom toilets...
Ok, maybe I have whims occasionally that I act on, but isn't it always more interesting to do something and ask questions later?
Today I had a whim. "Why don't I cut my bangs for the blog. They're getting a little long. I'll just watch a YouTube video and do it myself!"
As I'm watching some great tutorial videos, I come across real bangs, not the poser side-sweeping kind... "Hey, why don't I just do those? I need a new look."
20 minutes later.....bangs!!
I'm not sure what I think of them yet. It makes my hair look darker, and I feel like I'm in jr. high again, but my forehead wrinkles are covered (I'm only 29!!) and it's definitely different. I'm not too worried because it'll be back to normal in about a month if I don't like it. Also, I'm hoping they fall better after I wash and dry my hair.
If you're thinking about getting bangs, I would recommend watching a few YouTube videos and trying it yourself. It wasn't too hard, and I saved a few dollars.
Have any of y'all ever cut your own bangs or hair? How were your experiences?
