Yep. I broke up with my bangs. I’ve had straight bangs for almost two years now and felt like a change. I felt like I missed my eyebrows just a little. Every time I was due for a haircut I’d think about growing it out instead but I never had the guts (or just patience) to do it. However I After FW, I decided it was time to just give it a go. No one will see me going through that awkward phase of attempting to grow my hair from 5cm long to 50cm long since I’m back to my studious student self.. except for everyone who reads this blog. So uh, please ignore and maybe six months down the track I can start doing more exciting things to these strands of hair instead of attacking it with a handful of bobbies. To be honest I have no idea what exciting things I can do with my hair once I don’t have any bangs at all because the last time my hair was all the same length .. I was about 13. So good luck to me, may the future hold many new and unexpected hairstyles. Suggestions are always welcome to make the process less boring/painful :-)

    I didn’t recognize you in my reader without the bangs at first! But they look good so far :) Growing out bangs is soo annoyingly painful, at least your hair is straight though. Perfect layering with different textures and patterns :)

    Your flower crowns can always add something cute while you’re growing them out ;-) I’m curious though – what do you wear to uni??

    Personally, I prefer you without bangs. You look “fresher”, if you know what I mean. For me it’s been the opposite, I broke up with my bangs when I was six, so I’ve been wanting to get back on the bangs bandwagon but too scared of the commitment.

    Oh man I was trying to figure out what it was that looked different and then I realized your bangs are all tucked back! Good luck with the growing out process. I did it about three years ago. I’ve been wanting to get bangs again but just can’t decide if I want to deal with growing them out when I’m done with them.

    Try making a french braid that goes into the ponytail as well, and add bobby pins sort of hidden inside the braid to make sure the strands don’t fall out :) (sort of like this: http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/1DKICTtHtlsl.jpg ) I’ve gone trough that phase as well, so I know how annoying it can be.

    You look so different! Very cute. Best of luck growing them out. I had bangs briefly in college, but they were thin and whispy, so it wasn’t so much of a pain to grow them out.
