Bang Bang

Hair cuts are my favorite. Even when it is just a trim, the feeling the first time you wash your hair, and feel the nice clean edges at the bottom can't be beat. This time around was terrifying, though. I had been debating bangs for a few months - I wanted to do something after growing my hair out for the wedding, but I didn't want to chop it all off. So I figured bangs would be a good option. Something totally new. 

But that's terrifying. I spent a lot of time looking at photos of celebrity bangs, trying to envision my face shape in their haircut. Here are the three I loved the most: 

I really wanted to make sure I still liked the bangs with my hair up, so seeing Lauren Conrad with some longer pieces on the side to blend really made me happy. And while I loved Emma Stone's side swept bangs, I realized I wanted to go a bit more edgy at first, like Reese & Lauren. So that's what my amazing friend/hairstylist Lindsey did:

Shirt: Nordstrom
Sweatshirt: old, similar
Pants: J. Crew, similar
Booties: BP
Necklace: Le Tote

I was a bit freaked out at first, but I really love the look now. I'm not sure what my plans are for keeping them this length, or immediately growing them out, or trying some different bang styles now that I have them, so we'll see what decision I make after a few weeks!
