Meet Elizabeth and her two previous hairstyles.
From Elizabeth’s email:
I’m attaching two photos: one with my current length – which is long. The shorter hair is from 2007, when I had a sort of Katie Holmes-ish cut, first with full, heavy bangs, and then side-swept bangs as they grew out. I loved that short hair, especially because I think it made my awfully fine hair look fuller. I do like the long hair, now that I’ve finally gotten past the awkward in between stages. My first question is whether there is a length or actual style that would be good for me. Now that my hair is long, the layers are remnants from shorter days, and it’s mostly just one length. But my other question is about BANGS. Now that my hair is long, I see the posts about ponytail-bangs and LOVE them. What I’m concerned about is my very short forehead combined with dark eyes, dark eyebrows, and non-subtle glasses. Bangs look so cute on other people! Can I pull them off?
Elizabeth. First off, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the shorter length on you. ADORE. However, I totally understand you wanting to rock the longer hair after the dealing with the annoying growing out phase. Just know that if you decide to chop again, I will be your number one supporter.
Back to the question at hand. Can you pull off bangs? ABSOLUTELY! Your shiny, fine, glossy hair will be a breeze to style with bangs, and since you previously had them, you already know how to style. Check out these two options.
