Change Your Look with Bangs!

Aug 21, 2010

If you’re thinking about a new look for back to school then cutting some new bangs is one of the easiest ways to transform your hair style! Much less of a commitment than chopping your hair into a short bob or a dying it tomato red - some new bangs will give your hair a stylish new shape. But it’s not as simple as just chopping off some new bangs with a pair of scissors - leave it up to a professional if you want bangs to suit both your hair texture and face shape! Luckily there’s a bang style to suit just about everyone!

Sideswept

Sideswept bangs suit a lot of face shapes and hair textures. It’s a great way to test out having bangs if you cut them long - this way they can be blended into your hair easily if you decide you don’t like bangs. Sideswept bangs can be cut shorter if you decide you like them. Those with very thin or fine hairmay find that their hair is a bit too wispy for the hair to stay sideswept - there may be a tendency for the bangs to not not lie down properly so make sure you cut them a bit thicker.. This is a great style for those with thicker hair - it’s best to ask your hair stylist what they think!

Blunt Cut

This style is definitely the most dramatic bang cut - make sure you’re ready for it as it will take awhile to grow out! You can make them long enough to touch the bottom of your eyebrows or a little bit shorter for a more retro look. It’s important to get them trimmed regularly if you go for this look - hair grows fast!

Textured

These are great for an edgier look and looks great with hair that’s a bit messy and tousled! These are a bit trickier to cut because it involves a special texturizing technique to make them look shaggy that is difficult to do without proper training. Normally hair salons will charge no more than $5-$10 to cut your bangs so it’s worth the splurge to get the look you’re after!

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.

Hey, Just wanted some advice to help me on what to do on this. Ever since I was 3 I've been both Verbally, Mentally, And Physically abused. To me, this is normal since it's been happening for so long. But I just can't take this thing anymore. When I get home I always get yelled at for no reason. I have been on Anti-Depressants for the past 1-2 years. Been going to counseling for 6-7 years for family. Nothing has changed yet. I just need help on how to handle this. Thanks.
