I do not want to dye it, because that takes a lot of work and money to maintain.
I do not want a perm. Do people still get perms? (Other than grandmas - my grandma has a perm.) I had one in eighth grade when my hair was really long, before the great haircut freak out of 1997, but I haven't considered one since then.
What else is there to do with hair that does not involve shaving all or parts of it off?
Bangs? I could maybe do bangs.
That would be new and different. Possibly exciting.
There is one problem with bangs. Because I have parted my hair in the middle for so long, they naturally want to part themselves in the middle.
I had bangs in high school, and I tried to make them cooperate with curling irons, hair spray, repeated brushing and combing, curlers, the hairdryer, and tears of frustration - I never figured out the trick. I did burn my forehead several times with the curling iron, though.
I watched this video on how to style blunt bangs, and he makes it look so easy.
Is this how you have been doing it for all these years?
Yes, you, with the cute bangs? Is this how you do it?
I think I need a hair intervention.
What do you think - should I go for the bangs?
Pssst! If you watch that video all the way to the end, you can enter for a chance to win $100, $250 or more...and you can tell me if this is how you make your bangs look cute. I need to know.
