A few years ago I hopped on the bang train. It was a really quick ride before the blunt bangs turned into side bangs within about 3 weeks.
Well, I’ve been wanting to do something different, so I whipped out the ol’ craft scissors (you know, the sharp ones for fabric only) on a Sunday evening on a whim.
“I’m going to be in the bathroom a while babe…don’t come find me until I’m done. It could be bad, I’m hacking off my bangs.”
I watched a few YouTube videos and I was ready.
*Mistake #1 – see how much hair I let down on my left side? No bueno. That’s now the fat side of my bangs.

I’m smiling because I hadn’t looked in the mirror yet.
And then I did. That is dead sexy.
What in the world did I just do? Some things are not meant to be done yourself…
At this point I turned red, my heart started pounding, and I got really nervous.
OH NO, really, what was I thinking. Not to mention this was the Sunday night before a huge division meeting at my work that week, in which I’d have to be giving several presentations.
Yeah, I didn’t plan that one out too well.
So an hour later and hundreds of hair pieces stuck all over my face and chest, here’s what I ended up with.
It could have been much worse. I’m mostly happy with how they turned out. I’m going to let them grow out a little bit and then get them properly hacked off by a professional.
I learned my lesson not to do it again!
