Forehead fringe

To cut or not to cut. Bangs.

It’s a bigger decision than hair color. I can still function with dark roots, but I can’t see with hair in my eyes.

A woman in this month’s O Magazine’s makeover issue had her look completely transformed with bangs. And then there’s that sideswept look a la Justin Bieber. They intrigue me.

But I’m just not sure. My forehead so low my husband kids me that my eyebrows and my hairline practically meet. My gorilla-like genes came from my mother’s side of the family. Hair grows in all the right — and wrong — places. I’ll probably have to pluck my ears at some point.

I haven’t had bangs in years, and I like tucking my hair behind my ears. And if I had bangs, I would have to barrette them when I’m running; it’s so convenient to put my hair into a ponytail with just one hair accessory.

We shall see. Or perhaps we shall see through a curtain of hair.

  1. I chose bangs in the last year or so. I can’t tell you how many people I don’t see frequently mistook me for a stranger.

  2. I think you’re not the right age or gender for Bieber-bangs. But go for it..they’ll always grow out if you don’t like it.

  3. The other great thing about bangs is that they hide any wrinkles on the forehead. And, if you are like Goldie hawn and grow them long enough they also hide any wrinkles by your eyes.

  4. If you start them back far enough, it looks like that where your forehead starts and I agree about the fact they cover wrinkes on the forehead. Also if you curl them slightly, they don’t hang down so far.

  5. Well, I think your hair looks great as is and you don’t need bangs but if you decided you wanted to just for grins, you would probably still look great…you just have it going on girl!
