I Guess I Better Get To The Grocery Store

Good Lord! You people and your toddler food ideas! I feel as though a list needs to be created for all of you who don’t have time to pilfer through the comments.

Better get on that.

While I’m busy slaving away on said list, would you mind voting on whether or not I should get bangs over in my sidebar? I’ve been swaying back and forth for some time, so I just figured I’d let you make the decision. (That is, if you make the right decision. MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION.)

Here is a photo of the last time I had bangs:


(4 years ago.)

(p.s. – I hated my hair stylist back then.)

(p.p.s. -I adore my current one, who has great bangs herself.)

(p.p.p.s. – Not that I’m trying to sway you in a certain direction.)

(p.p.p.p.s. – Hey! That’s littlemissmel in the middle! Go say hello!)

However, if you feel SO STRONGLY one way or the other that a simple “yes” or “no” just won’t hack it, feel free to leave a comment. The future of mah hair is in your hands!

    I think the bangs make you look very Jaclyn Smith. And I mean that in a good, Charlie’s Angels way. But personally I can’t get over the bangs tickling my forehead.

    You look great either way, so go with whatever is more comfortable and easier to style.

    Jaclyn Smith, you say? *dashing to the salon*

    Well, you’re gorgeous either way, but I voted for bangs.

    And I LOVE that jacket!

    While you look very cute in bangs, I’m almost always unanimously against them because the time always comes that you’re sick of them and they’re just a motherfucker to grow out. I hate them on myself because I feel like a little girl. I can’t rock them the way some people can (Metalia!).

    Wow, I was surprised more people were saying no!

    I voted for bangs too – long swoopy ones. Longer than in the above picture.

    I said no only because I have never once gotten bangs and been all, what a great idea! Bangs! AWESOME! No no. Except for now, of course, but that doesn’t count, because my whole head is shorter than the average bang, what with the supershort pixie and all.

    I am wrestling with the same decision. I can’t pick a vote, because it would be too much like picking myself… I haven’t had them since I was about 9, so I have no adult experience to draw on. I’m bored, I want a change and more “interest” around my face. But will I get sick of dealing with them? Will they do as I say? How horrible will it be if I decide to grow them back out? But everyone I know who has the long swoopy ones looks so great. I want to look great…

    Maybe I’ll get to use you as my guniea pig :) Good luck. You have gorgeous hair, it will look good either way.

    I say yes but longer to match your now longer hair. And if you hate them, you can tell everyone that crazy internet assholes talked you into it…and they’ll grow out in no time. Ta-Da!

    Definitely yes to the bangs. Very cute. Every magazine I’ve read over the past two months say long wispy bangs like Reese Witherspoon and Halle Berry’s are the thing for fall.

    Go for the bangs.. I wrestled with the idea for so long too, and then one morning I just cut them, without thinking too much about it, not giving myself time to back out of it. I love them. Cut them long enough so you can pin them back in a little “pompadour” on the top of your head when you don’t feel like having bangs for a day, and short enough that they are not poking you in the eye.

    I just got bangs after two years of exposed forehead. It really makes a difference, so I vote yes.

    I’d forgotten how darling you look with bangs. What does d think? Can I vote twice?

    At first, D was against it, but lately he’s been coming around.

    first of all…your hair here was adorable. second of all…get BANGS.

    you are probably tempted on the bang front because it’s been so hot. I would say yes to bangs. less fringe though – and more long and whispy.

    I love, love, love the bangs you have in this picture. I’m going to show this picture to my hair stylist in fact and say THERE, THAT’S WHAT I MEANT. Because although I love her, she did not give me bangs that look half as lovely as yours above.
