To Bangs or Not to Bangs??!

I do this once a year, my inner struggle to decide whether to cut bangs or not to cut bangs
In the past.... John thinks I look like a lesbian from one of our favorite bands, someone told me I look like I did in high school (that's not always cool) I've been told I look younger (but I was young when that happened) I doubt I'd get that this time.
So then I cut them and regret it. BUT.. I really think I've just never really went all the way with it! I just cut a little bit (probably not enough, too thin and not short enough) I do that so if I hate them it's not a total pain to grow them back out. But I never get the real deal feel of them.

How trivial, I know... but a girls hair is very important to her! Ask one, they'll probably agree.

 The Blunt Cut Bangs - cute, but I don't understand how they keep them so flat and that.. "fresh cut look"
 The turd roll, v'd in the front... er no thanks

The WAY too much swoop bang! It's like a long version of Justin Bieber?!?!

The thin, in yo face Whispy-ness Fringe Bangs
This would be a driving hazard for me and I would constantly be blowing them out of my face.

The Asymmetrical Bang, cool for a hair stylist or uber trendy person (which I am neither)

The thick.. long.. kinda rolled. 
But on this chick, with those dimples and that face, she could have a mullet or butch cut and it would still be cute!
I like these too, a basic bang 
but it just might be because I like her as an actress??

My personal fav! The side swoop - which John makes fun of sometimes, I'm not sure why? 
(I just wish I could get mine to do that all the time) I can get this a couple times and then it goes to poo.

Decisions... decisions

UPDATED: I cut bangs! and here they are..... 
real glad I got that moment of impulsiveness out of the way.  
yes I cut them myself, I'm one of those that cuts their hair to whatever works for that day. If my ponytail is uneven I will just cut part of it. Also, youtube has so many tutorials on how to's, it's amazing!!

straight down

and here's to the side for something different. 
they're starting to grow on me now, I might keep them for longer than a couple weeks. It definitely takes a ton of weight out of the front of my hair (i used to get lost in it all) so overall I am liking the change. Although at first I was not, it prob took 2 weeks to get used to them. 

 I might try to keep em around for a couple months
and will probably try it again in 2012 ;)
OR I will just buy these next time - kinda wish I'd researched this first - Clip on Bangs!! who knew??

I say, John's opinion be damned (sorry John!), go for it! I think the side swept ones would look super cute, and I think you could probably pull off some of the other styles as well. And, if you don't like it, it's just hair. It'll grow back. Do you have a regular hairstylist? If not, I suggest Sandra at Sheer Professionals. She's very talented!

I agree, I say go for it! You always look super cute whenever I see you, so I have no doubt that you could rock the bangs!

They ended up looking great! Its funny because the last picture you have up of one of the olsen's, I took to the hair dresser to have him do for me. They ended up a bit different but they came out really good. I love bangs!

I came over from FTLOB :)

So today, I just cut my own bangs for the first time in probably 15 years. when I look in the mirror they look fine, but when I look at them in a picture I wanna say "Oh no! Who butchered that poor girl's bangs???". Hopefully I can clean 'em up to look more like yours :)

Stopping by from FTLOB fun post. I wonder how your bangs are these days? I go through the same dilemma. I get bangs, I grow them out. I cut them, I want them shorter, I want them spikier, I want them side-swept, I want them chunkier, I want them softer...oy vey.

Yours, btw, looked lovely :)
