My hair is jacked.
So, I cut bangs - which is fine. I got tired of growing them out, and cut them. Bangs frame my face correctly so the top widens, and I don't look like a pear on a body. It was impulsive, but - after a billion bad bang jobs - I finally figured out how to cut bangs perfectly last year (which is something I've found not all hair dresses can do). So, fine. Whatever.
Here's the problem: I still haven't done anything with the rest of my hair.
Historically, long hair with bangs has been HORRIBLE on me.
Right now, I have hair that's almost touching my shoulders. I also have an ombre that used to be purple and is now bronze-y and about a year past its expiration date.
The best part of the ombre is the damage it gave the bleached parts, which helps with the volume - though it's frizzy, dry looking volume (I don't use conditioner most days because of my fine and oily thing, just some spray detangler and a mask once a week).
I know I could and should get a cut, but with my length and the bangs, it'd leave me with the same style I've sported for almost a year: bangs with a bob. I was really hoping for a change.
On the bright side, I have tons of new growth - like everywhere!!! Thank you fixed thyroid!
I wanted to see if the new growth would make a difference in whether I could pull off long hair and bangs. I think it's still too short (about two inches) to make much difference.
I guess I'm off in search of a haircut today. Stagnation in hair in the pursuit of change.
Maybe I'll add in some thick, inch-wide, blue streaks. Maybe.
