Sometimes your just have to go-for-it

I got bangs....
I'm a little self conscious about taking pictures of myself "selfies" Me myself & I.
but I feel pretty confident that you, my blogger friends wouldn't judge.
 It has been along time since I have had actual bangs, 
you know the kind that hang on your forehead and sometimes get in  your eyes. 
 I dont know if I'm like most women or not but I really really struggle with my hair, 
and what to do with it on a daily basis.... ugh!
Typically about mid-way through the day it gets put back in some kind of headband...borrrrrring!
So I got really brave with the help of my daughter's encouragement 
and some photo's on Pinterest!   
I had an appointment today so I talked to my Stylist for about 10 minutes, 
showing her the photo's of what I liked and didnt like,
 she  also encouraged me to "Go-for-it" 
She's a "go-for-it" kind of stylist....I like that about her.
She tells me like it is....
 "It'll take some getting used to", and if you hate them, they will grow back"

Well, I think I like them, she cut them in 2 stages, just a little bit, then a little bit more.
So now it's back to "bang trims" in between cuts but that's ok, 
she's only a couple miles from my house and she does it for free  :)

Here's the photo I showed my stylist.... 
that's me on the right,  ha ha
We'll see how long this lasts.....


  1. Very, very cute! I like them!

    1. Thanks Jill.... I'm still undecided :/

  2. I like a stylist with a go-for-it attitude. I always tell my stylist, "You're the expert, not me. Whatever you think will look good."

    I think the bangs are cute on you. Now if you could do a before and after photo placed side-by-side, that would help. Have Brianna take a picture of you.

    1. Ugh,,, no more pics of me Audrey :) Today the bangs are driving me a bit nuts, just as my stylist said they would, hopefully I'll get used to them.

    Love the bangs Jackie! Glad that you went for it! (Rachel)

    1. Thanks Rachel, trying to get used to them, but I think it'll take more than a day :)

  5. I like them! Have often thought bangs would look good on you. Got a curling iron? Sometimes it helps to give bangs a little soft "bend" to lift them a bit.

    1. Cheri I have always loved your haircuts (with bangs). I should of took a picture of you to my hair cutter lady :)

  6. The new cut is wonderful! And the bangs work very well with your hair texture/length! I'm glad you "went for it"!! Life on the edge!!!!! LOL!!!! Hugs......

  7. Way to be adventurous! I, too, struggle with my hair daily...the woes of womanhood;)

    1. But your hair is always so cute !
