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!

I'm really sorry you have to do through this and that you think you have to go through this alone. But I'm here. Maybe you should move with your dad. It would be safer for you there then with your mom. People say, that the people who you love are the one's who hurt you the most. But not in this case, your parents and the one's around you should be the reason you want to live. They should encourage you to do better, and not get mad when you don't succeed the first time. I understand what you're going through, and if you ever need me, I'm here. I am willing to talk, and sometimes, talking is all it needs to brighten someone's day. So please, come and talk to me. Just.. talk to your dad and see if you can move now, explain to him what's happening.

There are millions of things that she does to me to hurt me. She hits a lot for no reason, she always says I'm 'talking back' when I'm just trying to explain in a polite way. She takes sides. When I yell at my 5 year old sister, She freaks out and grounds me it even worse hits me. When my sister yells at me or hits me, all she says is 'sweetie don't hit that brat'. And I'm not exaggerating cause she always does these things. The list can go on and on. When My mom calls me names or hurts my feelings and then I start crying, she calls me 'bratty' and other mean words, and she wonders why I have low self-esteem. I mean, people have feelings too. She thinks the world revolves around her. And when she's sad or angry, she wants me to comfort her. She hurts my feelings so bad that I just want to die. And shell probably be mad at me for dying. I can't take it. Ugh. And I have to deal with her for one more year, then im moving with My dad. Not like she'll miss me.
