it's like middle school all over again

it has happened.

the bangs have reached that awkward place. that half inch too long that is easily snippable, nothing a few minutes with the shears won't fix, but i don't have nerve to tackle it myself.

because i'm the girl who thought, oh it's just a few weeks. let's schedule my next hair appointment about a month out. and i'm left with fringe over my eyebrows, a little tickle of hair that sweeps over my lashes. frantically searching my bathroom drawer for bobby pins or hairspray or something of the like to hold these babies in.place.

it's a minuscule little pesky problem. nothing in the grand scheme of things. nothing a sweep to the side won't fix. but it's 8:30 a.m. and my coffee cup is sitting empty beside me and right now, it is akin to a catastrophe. but sunshine is streaming in through the window to the right of me and it's okay. it's going to be just fine.

and like that big t-shirt phase i went through in middle school (which happened to coincide with those few months i had my hair cut in an awful bob to look just like rachel leigh cook on the babysitter's club movie), this too shall pass.

the first thing I opened this blog and saw your photo was "I want bangs!" Oh but I've tried and can't pull it off. Does your stylist offer free bang trims in between appointments? I've heard this is often the case. Anyways, you look fabulous!

ugh I know what you mean...I have had bangs a while now and they've gotten so weird that I just brush them to the side...grrr..my hair just grows too fast! My mom told me that NC was a little chilly this morning!!! I miss being there this time of year!!! Fill that coffee cup up girl and enjoy a second of NC for me!!! Hope you have an awesome day!

I totally understand! I have bangs and hate that awkward phase. Mine always end up looking like a comb over. :P I think yours still look great!

i think you look dahhhling! i just cut mackenzie's bangs because she was begging me to and I told her not to cry this time if they don't turn out---no tears but the bobby pins def. get poured on the sinks every morning before school:) i'm patiently waiting for my hair to grow long again! i just want to pull it up:)

I wore bangs just up until a few years ago and I cut them myself...just pulled them up, snipped and they fell in layers. I liked them a little messy. Now they are grown out and I like the convenience of pulling them back or behind my ears when I am hot. Maybe some day I'll go back!

haha. I know exactly what you mean! But I don't mind snipping it a bit myself. (I'm growing out my hair so I don't schedule hair appointments often)

I feel your pain! I often take the scissors to my bangs and then apologize profusely to my stylist for the damage.

LoL. Happens to the best of us. I'm trying to grow out my hair and it is at such an akward length. It looks bad down, and so I try and put it up (which takes 1,098,208 bobbie pins.

Bibi said...

Justina F. Lee said...

Haha oh man, I seriously understand. I hate when that happens but now I try avoiding that to begin with

Joy said...
