First things first: If you're reading this post in Google Reader or some other RSS service, might I suggest you click over to my blog? It got a little facelift yesterday and I'm super happy with it.Yay!
Second of all: Do you mind if we talk about hair for a minute? I am in the midst of a bit of a conundrum. Every summer, I think about doing something different with my locks -- two years ago they were super long; last year I chopped them off. In the winter, I added ombre highlights, and I still like them, but I want something a little different. So I'm thinking: bangs.
Here's the thing: I have a round face and hair that is not straight, not curly, and tends to frizz in the Florida humidity. I am also not someone who can go for several days without washing her hair; I wash my hair daily -- and sometimes twice daily, depending on whether it's hot outside/I sweat, etc. So I'm thinking longer, side-swept bangs might work (kind of like these that Lauren from Walnut Animal Society is sporting, and yes, I realize it is slightly stalkery to link to that Instagram photo!), because I can clip them back if needed, and also, if I decide to grow them out, they'll kind of blend into my hair.
But I also know myself in the morning, and I know that sometimes I just have no desire to do anything with my hair other than pull it back into a ponytail. Will bangs make that ponytail look nicer, though? Or will they just be a hassle?
I'm curious: Where do you stand on the subject?
