    HOTT! God, I wish I had a normal forehead and could pull that off. You look AMAZING. Even more so than usual. And that’s saying something.

    Wow! Gorgeous! I WISH I could pull those off, but for some reason I think brunettes do the blunt bags better…

    Wow!! I have to admit, it took every ounce of self restraint I have not to scream NOOOOOOOO when you said you were gonna do it. But holy cat-shit, woman, you ROCK those blunt bangs!!! Gorgeous.

    How come YOU get the bangs and don’t end up looking like a Wilson sister, but I somehow do? (pouts)

    That haircut is the bees knees, lady. Beautiful.

    Good lord! They look awesome-do you find that blunt bangs are easier than sideswept ones?

    I’ll get back to you on that one! ;)

    Looks better on you than on that model in your inspiration photo. You’re gorgeous girl! Hey, you think bangs like that would work even if I have a cowlick or two?

    I have two stubborn cowlicks – one on each side! The key is cutting them thick enough – the heaviness of the hair will counteract the cowlicks. (In fact, I was shocked at how well they behaved from the moment they were cut – even better than my sideswept bangs!)

  • natalie

    August 21, 2009 at 7:51 am

    Now… how do you wear those when you wear your hair wavy? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Very good question. I’ve been wondering that myself. We shall soon see, I guess!

  • Lesha

    August 21, 2009 at 7:54 am

    Looks so great on you!

    I love bangs.
    I got mine a few months ago.
    I keep them trimmed myself (which…yah, isn’t all that HAWT), but I’m cheap.

    I need to go back to get them shaped up again though. Thanks for some motivation!

    I love it! I have an appointment on sat and I have been debating about doing the bangs. Now that I see them on you, I might do it! Any tips or suggestions on knowing if they will work on your face?

    Be sure and talk to your stylist about the different types of bangs that would work for you. There are so many factors – face shape, forehead length, hair texture – the list goes on and on. The one thing that makes a huge difference that some people don’t think about is your city’s weather. If you live somewhere with really high humidity or lots of rain/wind, bangs might not be the best option, no matter what your face/hair type. Good luck!

    Oh man, they look so fantastic!! These may tip me fully into the blunt bangs camp, from the sideswept from my week on HT last month. Love them!

  • Elizabeth

    August 21, 2009 at 9:50 am

    I would really love to do that! I wonder if I could pull it off? Any type of face shape or hair that it would look best on? My features are pretty similar to yours (same length hair with layers, same color, brown eyes, etc.) Post more pics! I’d love to see the top of it. Is it parted in the middle? So many questions :)

    I’ve been checking out this blog since I googled how to curl my hair a few years ago but have never posted!

    Hey Elizabeth! I’ll try to take some photos this weekend and put them up next week. :)

    Oh honey they look SO awesome – and I knew they would! I loved my heavy bangs when I had them, even though my forehead used to get soooo sweaty. (Hint – stock up on blotting papers or carry tissues with you. LOL.)

    Look at you, all pretty and stuff with the bangs! Hawt!

    Love it. You have the perfect hair & face to pull it off. I discussed them with my stylist this morning – the consensus is that my hair is to individually fine & slippery to do that well, they would just end up looking wispy. So I love to see other people rockin’ them instead!

    Also, I second the comment above about your necklace – love it! What is it?

    gorgeous sweetheart. but any tips on trimming blunt bangs? I have ridiculously fast-growing hair…usually good but not now, with me running into walls and such.

    Yes! Hold the scissors vertically and at snip the ends, moving from the middle outwards. This keeps them from looking too blunt.
