my heart went bang shang a lang

7 Things That Make Me Who I Am - Part Two

2. My bangs

Though I consider my hair, and my bangs in particular, to be physically my defining characteristic, my overall attitude towards is fairly blasé. My basic policy is that as long as I have blunt bangs, what's going on with the rest of my hair is unimportant.
Logically, I used to be extremely careful with my bangs, allowing them to only be trimmed by a trained professional. Eventually, I began to allow my mother, who has had bangs her whole life and is near-professional at trimming her own, to give it the odd go when I couldn't make it (read: was to lazy to venture) to my hairdresser's. Soon, in a fit of desperation, I began to trim my own bangs.

And lately?
A couple weeks ago I trimmed my bangs in my cousin's yard without a mirror.

Check out that Bob Masse Led Zeppelin poster though - gorgeous, hey? Nicola bought it for me for no reason...I have no idea what I did to deserve such a glorious friend. And for the record? Nicola's got some badass bangs as well.

I just got bangs (well, I had them for most of my childhood life haha, and grew them out couple years ago) but I couldn't imagine myself without them now! But my mom trimmed them the other day and kind of messed them up. :( Bah.
I really like your blog btw :)

Um um UM, before I get to those bangs... THAT POSTER. This comment is inevitable, and I'm sure expected, but... HOLY JIMMY PAGE! My favorite of all his suits, and openness of the jacket? Incredible. A liiiittle envious. My bedroom wall is a collage of postcards, and CD booklets taken apart. I've got two massive Pink Floyd posters and a cute Breakfast at Tiffany's one. The other day my dad said to me, "You don't have a sweet ass Led Zeppelin poster. What's that about?" It never really dawned on me until then, and you may have inspired me to actually get out and get one.

More on-topic, your bangs are amazing. I love love love my bangs, and have been alternating between bangs and long tousled hair you can run your fingers through and flip to the side, for my entire life. You're really making me anticipate parts 3-7, xo.

Ohmigosh I love this! One of the things that makes me who I am is my bangs, as well. I absolutely adore bangs - have had them practically all my life. Though I'm still not very good at trimming them myself. I commend you for being able to trim them in your cousin's backyard. Sans mirror! :)

I can not handle bangs. But they look darling on you, as they always have.

I love your bangs :D

"My basic policy is that as long as I have blunt bangs, what's going on with the rest of my hair is unimportant." I so agree with this!

Thanks for your sweet comment Molly. It means a lot xo

I ALWAYS cut my own hair, mainly because I'm not bothered to find the time or money to go to a hairdresser :P Plus, I totally get to be like "oh yes, I'm just so cool that I cut my own hair..."
I'm so stealing this 7 things idea, by the way.

When the FUDGE am I not trimming something? I trim my body from head to toe and it's a flipping art in itself...

I absolutely lurve your frickin' bangs Molly. I feel it's simply a piece to your wonderfully eccentric puzzle. It's like an extra large eyebrow... accentuating every facial expression. Love it...

Missed you ever so much...

Peace and Latin love
