bangs!

haircut!
as you like it salon

I finally got my haircut on Tuesday and I really like it! I decided to go all out and get bangs, though at first I wasn't sure if I really wanted them. When I got to the salon, I told Miriam what I wanted and showed her the pictures of Brigitte Bardot. She said she would start out slowly and cut longer bangs and see how I like it. It was really fun working with her! She listened to me and didn't do anything I didn't like. Finally I said I really did want bangs and she cut all the way. I even got an email today from her to make sure I am happy with my haircut. You bet I am! It's nice to have a change once in a while and I feel like it has been a long time since I've done anything this drastic (for me) with my hair. So if you happen to be in the area or live nearby, I recommend you check out this lovely salon. I really liked the vintage vanities they used! Why don't more salons do this?

Anyway, now I am thinking of all these cute hairstyles I can do now that I have fringe! Another thing that is nifty with bangs is that I don't get headaches nearly as often as I used to when I put my hair up. And that's a definite plus!

  1. Beautiful! you look awesome with bangs! I love them with the bun. I like bangs and buns because they dont look nearly as severe. Yay for new hairdos!~

  2. Thanks, Heather! And I agree! I've always wanted something in the front to help when I put my hair in a bun. I love bangs! They are so fun to play with.

  6. Hi Anna,
    I've been following your blog for some time now and you've really inspired me, through your beautifully written posts and your lovely photos to begin sewing my own clothing and creating my own arts and crafts. Your new haircut looks absolutely fantastic and I’ve been contemplating cutting bangs for a long time but have never been brave enough to try. You rock it! xo

  10. i almost didn't recognize you with your new haircut--your stylist did an amazing job! you really seem to be channeling brigitte bardot in these photos.

    i've tried bangs so many times, but every single stylist has told me that i should give them up. i think i've finally accepted their advice.

  14. you are totally making me want to get bangs again, Anna! (I'm getting ahead of myself - my pixie is still growing out; we're at the shag stage, almost there!!)

    It's funny you mention headaches when you put your hair up, I always have this problem when my hair is long, too, and NOBODY BELIEVES ME. They just say, "oh, poor you, with all your thick luxurious hair," as if I'm fishing for compliments or bragging or something - ha, I feel so understood now!! =)

  19. Happy birthday Anna!! Life only gets better once you approach 30. Well, I'm only just over it but it seems to be a consensus amongst women I know who are over 30. So let's go with that.

    The new hair suits you. I found the same thing with regards to getting a headache when my hair was up. I especially like being able to be lazy with my styling but still look a bit fancy.
