late night hair decisions

the other night i decided it was time to refresh my bangs...myself.  
I've had long side bangs for a while and they drive me nuts.  A few months ago I asked hubby if he liked my bangs 'as is' or if I should cut them.  He said I should leave them, so I did.  I had my hairdresser freshen them with a tiny trim at my last hair appointment.  Well, I'm over it.  I am oily and when I wear my bangs down they just get all stringy and they are constantly in my eyes so I've been keeping them pinned up or hairsprayed back.

Wednesday night, around 11pm I took matters into my own hands and went to google 'bangs for square face" and the like.  This picture of Amanda Peet showed up. 
There, those are the bangs I want!

Not quite "wall of bangs" a la Sandra Bullock's at the 2011 Golden Globes, but definitely not just a long swoopy layer of hair either.

So, here is an unofficial before picture....
notice my bangs are pinned back (as per norm) and my hair is wavy 

and this is me after I went into the bathroom around 11:15pm with scissors and gave it a go
we're totally twins, right?!
I consider it a success.  
I'm happy with how they came out.  No tears & no emergency trip to the hairdresser before work the next morning.  Yay new bangs!

Any hair issues in your life recently?  Do tell.


  1. you look gorgeous!! I cut my own hair often too...they grow incredibly fast, and I don't like going to the hairdresser , it's boring. My hairdresser says I'm good with scissors, ah ha!!

    Me too! I'm too cheap to have someone else do it all the time. But, I I have to admit to being a little too eager with my thinning shears one time :)


Quips & Queries all appreciated!
