The Bangs Are Back!

It's pretty amazing how much something as simple as your hair color or a good cut can make you feel more like yourself.  I've always been one to take big hair changes very lightly.  I've never hesitated to take a box of blonde dye from Target to my dark roots even though my mom warned me against it, I didn't even second guess myself when I decided to chop 12 inches off of my long dark hair and dye it blonde ... It's no secret that I'm spontaneous, so when I went to get my hair done last week I made the last minute decision to bring the bangs back! 

I have to say, at this point in time, I can't imagine having my hair any other way than long, dark + with bangs spread right across my forehead.  The funny thing is that this is exactly the way that my hair was throughout my entire childhood ... Super long, bangs cut right above my brow and straight with a bit of wave.   

I remember like it was yesterday ... living in Missouri, my mom driving me over to my Mimi's house to get my bangs trimmed.  She would pull up a stool in her kitchen, bring out those sharp orange scissors and cut away.  Maybe I was feeling nostalgic last week talking wedding plans and my little sister's graduation with everyone at the salon, maybe I was feeling quirky in a Zooey Deschanel kind of way, or maybe my mom just knew what she was doing with my long hair and straight across bangs all those years ago.  Either way, I'm thrilled that the bangs are back and they're definitely here to stay!  What do you think?  Are you an adventurous with your hair or do you find comfort in keeping things the same?
