For People Who Have Bangs

"Should I get bangs?"

Every girl has asked herself once or twice, "should I get bangs?" But for people who really do have bangs, it's never been a question. Bangs are a part of who you are; they have been around as long as you can remember, and going without your bangs is like walking around basically naked. There are some things only people with bangs can understand, like having random strangers approach you to just to make comments on your hairstyle.

1. It feels as if you were born with bangs.

There isn't a distinct moment you remember getting bangs. It feels as if just one day, you had them and you never went back.

2. Hearing people's opinions about your hair (whether you asked or not).

Strangers will approach me to make comments on my bangs. The amount of times people have said to me, "I hate bangs but you pull them off!" is countless. People will offer me suggestions for my bangs whether I said I was looking for a new style or not.

3. Hair days rely solely on your bangs.

If your bangs won't cooperate, it doesn't really matter what the rest of your hair even looks like. Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to get your bangs to do what you want them to.

4. Being told you look like someone just because of your bangs.

I love being told I look like Zooey Deschanel, but it's hard to ignore the fact that I'm only told that just because we both have dark hair and bangs.

5. Feeling personally insulted every time someone makes a joke about bangs.

Bangs are the butt of a lot of jokes, and it feels like a shot in the heart every time.

6. Realizing how fast your hair grows.

You don't realize how fast your hair grows until you have to keep getting your bangs tripped every two to three weeks.

7. And the struggle of trying to cut them yourself.

We've all accidentally ruined our lives with a pair of scissors and a rash decision.

8. Forehead break outs are no big deal.

A pimple or two on the forehead is nothing because your bangs are there for you.

9. The weather is not your friend.

Rain, wind, snow and heat (all that sweating!) will sabotage your perfectly crafted bangs.

10. Knowing you didn't choose the bangs life.

Bangs aren't a conscious choice. Usually it's just what looks better on you. You couldn't not have bangs, even if you didn't want to.

11. But you're REAL proud that the bangs life chose you.

Bangs are different and fun, and you feel blessed that you were one of the few people chosen to be able to pull them off.
