after thinking long and hard, i decided to give mitch an early christmas present and i made an appointment with kara to give my husband the bangs he wanted.
at first i was very excited about my little secret and the surprise i had planned for mitch. but as the day neared, i was having second thoughts:
- did i really want all of the added hassle of bangs?
- was i sure i looked okay with bangs?
- what if i hated them?
- how long would it take me to grow them out again if they were horrid?
- having no bangs was so easy!
but i stayed my course and did it! here are the before shots:
but, since i was changing my hair, why not do a little more than just snip some off the front?! i was feeling a little crazy, so i decided to do something that i have never done before....
i added a splash of color! i had no idea how it would turn out because my hair is so stinkin' dark, close to black, but i thought, "hey, why not!" i was going for golden highlights. mitch voted red, but i was not wantin' red. however, with a red-headed mom i think it was inevitable that whatever color we put in my hair it would end up red. sure enough:
here i am "au natural" (please ignore my non-make-uped face and look at the hair!). notice, it turned red!! arrgh! i am still trying to decide if i like the red or not. as soon as i got home i told mitch, with disappointment in my voice, that it was more red than golden. his response, "alright!! i like it!" with a huge grin on his face!
despite all of my misgivings, i absolutely love my bangs! the color, well, i could go for somthing different. but, there's always next time! right?
the bangs are a lot different than my last stint with bangs and that is why i like them better! this time we cut them thicker and layered them. the best part they are super easy to fix! no hassle! that was my biggest reason for not wanting them! they even look decent after sleeping on them, and i wore a hat the other day and they looked good even after taking the hat off! wow!
but that isn't even the best part! what's the best part? the best part is the subtle grin mitch has on his face every time he looks at me! the best part is the numerous times mitch tells me, daily, how beautiful i am and how much he loves my hair! the best part is that this was a gift for mitch and he absolutely loves it! that's the best part!
