Help! I need bangs.


I haven’t chronicled my hair progress in a while, but just be rest assured: it’s very long now. It’s also been bleached, and I have an undercut, and for the most part I wear it up in a top knot, because I don’t know what else to do with it! And I’m kind of bored with it but I also want to keep growing it out.

And on top of that, I have those gross little flyaways that happens to women after they have a baby.  I am in a RUT, I tell you. So, I decided I might as well try something new and get BANGS. This is a SIGNIFICANT time in a grown woman’s life. Screen Shot 2017-10-19 at 9.23.46 AM

I was thinking about the character Joi from Blade Runner 2049 and she had some bangs I was really digging. Maybe I should get something like that? InStyle has this super handy guide where you get the right bangs for your face shape, and not like, the ones you just prefer, you know? Because all women are basically just blank canvases (I have a similar gripe with “the right jeans for your body” like fuck off). I don’t really know what shape my face is. Is it kind of square? Anyway, I narrowed down the choices:


I’m in the mood to do something radical, and I feel like I want to get some short straight bangs like No. 3. Yeah??? No. 4 is kinda too early-2000s and No. 1 is too “beauty blogger”. 2 and 3 have some personality.

What do you think?? Help!
