No Commitment Bangs

Disclaimer: This post is a sponsored post through BlogHerTV and Olay. All opinions are mine.

I’m an average, every day girl with a lot of interests. Part of my blog rebranding is to incorporate more of the everyday things in life worth celebrating. While I don’t consider myself super fashionable or trendy, I do love fashion, makeup, and hair-styling. You’ll be seeing more and more posts about fashion and beauty. I will still be posting plenty of parties… but, you’ll also get a little glimpse into the everyday (and special occasion) beauty and fashion secrets of an average lady. Hopefully they will inspire you or at least entertain. 🙂

A couple of years ago I took the plunge and got my bangs cut. I loved them. I loved how my face changed with them. I loved how they framed my eyes. What I didn’t love was the commitment to the look and the commitment to getting my bangs trimmed (or attempting to do it myself) every two weeks or so.

I was super excited to see a tutorial (see video below) on how to create the look of bangs without the commitment of the cut. I think it would also be a great way to test out how bangs would look on your face-shape if you’d been thinking about chopping your locks.

I need a little more practice before the bangs work really well. But, it is a fun way to change my hair without the commitment of the chop. BTW… growing out hair SUCKS.

      It is a great idea… it was hard to implement. But, I bet with practice it’ll become much easier!

    I have a love/hate relationship with my bangs. If I had straight hair I would be on the love side a lot more. But since I am “blessed” with the wave, a drop of rain (what? in Portland?) could turn those cute bangs to frizzy eye sores. I’m in the middle of the “cut them, grown them, mourn them, re-cut and start over” phase. If all else fails, I just [french] braid them to the side. Best invention ever. That video is nifty though. Great tip for those who find it hard to commit!

    i agree with you, it’s the commitment that always has me growing out my side-bangs.

      I have been sticking with side-bangs lately just so I can sweep them across and have the look of bangs without the commitment. But, I’m getting an itch to cut again! Good luck with yours!

    Oh, I had no idea you could ‘fake’ bangs! Granted, I have bangs currently (so no need to fake em), but this is a great trick!
