Getting bangs is a fun and exciting switch up. You're trying out something new and you can't imagine yourself without bangs. But along with this comes some struggles I am sure we can all agree with. Some of them are comments we receive.
"Isn't that a HUGE commitment??!"
Okay, so like sure it's something you should keep up with and take care of, but it isn't life-altering. You know what are commitments too? Probably 99% of other things in life like piercings, bills, school, jobs, and etc. So I'm not really sweating it in the scheme of things, Thad.
"How do you get them to be like that?"
It's really crazy what a blow-dryer and a blow-dry thermal rolling brush can REALLY do. Wild. Here's a link to educate yourself if you really are wondering how we do it.
"Oh you have bangs? That's cool."
Yes I do, thanks for the observation. And yeah, I think they're cool too. That's why I got them.
"I like always wanted to get bangs, but I don't know if they'd look good. They do on you though! I didn't mean it like that!"
A lot of people tell me this and it always surprises me. Life is too short, y'all, if you want to experiment with your style and try different things. GO FOR IT! Have fun with it and say screw it. I got mine done spontaneously and it was one of the best things I could have done for myself. Not only for myself, but for my self-confidence.
"Did you always have bangs?"
Yes, I came out the womb like this. And yes, I did get asked this question. By a super weird dude too after a bad date. Thank u, next.
"Were you scared to get bangs?"
Gotta say, I was way more scared for a lot of other things in comparison to getting bangs. Yet I always get asked if I was "so scared." I was scared to get surgery. I was scared to go to college. I was scared to get on an airplane for the first time. I was scared to go on an interview for an internship. But to get bangs?! Nah, not really.
"Do you have to take care of them?"
No, they take their own form. Do you brush your teeth every day? Do you brush your hair? Do you shower? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then yes you take care of them. Just like anything else.
Also, at the end of the day, do whatever the hell you want! Get bangs to try it out. If you don't like them, you can always pin them back or tuck them under a headband. They'll grow out if you don't want them, it's not permanent. Have a little fun in life, try new things.
