Bangstory Part I
Kristen dared us to reveal our bangs and the problems that go with them. I loved the idea so much that I went home last night, cracked open some cheap wine and went to work on my bangstory. Then I realized I should dig into my own hair history and found some recent photos of myself and my
Then I discovered I must be insane to be doing this and I was scared to death about millions of people seeing my horrid photos. My husband even told me he was going to check me into the Paul Mitchell clinic for hair obsession because I ended up with too many bangs shots.
Then I thought how fun it would be to post my old school photos, but after drinking the wine I realized I couldn’t operate the scanner very well to uploaded them to flickr.
So I introduce to you, Part I of my Bangs History. Or Bangstory. Part II to follow tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Illustration I – The pull-back poof.
Illustration II – The flat pull-back with loose wispy thingies.
Illustration III – The really cool headband thing that the high school girls wear, plus a little staticky hair, plus no make-up and a really, really dorky smile and expression.
Illustration IV – The Rooster. It was my attempt to do BIG BANGS like the late 80′s but I’d have to cut my bangs a bit shorter and I don’t want to relive those awful years. I’ll post photos of those days tomorrow.
Illustration V – The “I Still Know I Can’t Do 90′s Hair” Screaming ’Do from Hell. Let’s face it, after trying to make my bangs touch the sky, there was no way to undo that shit. I kind of look like a Peacock on PMS.
Illustration VI – The Full Frontal Bang Attack reminiscent of the mid 90′s. Normally I’d have had long hair to go with this.
Illustration VII – The side parted barette pull back. Also known as, “I’m starting to look like my mother in the 70′s look”.
Illustration VIII – The “I’m not doing a damn thing to my hair” look. Or Cousin It. Your choice. The bangs are uneven as I try to grow out the mistake of cutting them in the first place.
Illustration IX – Remembering the ONE AND ONLY DAY my hair looked perfect!
Illustration X – My hair two years ago, when I was thinner and sexier. Notice the attractive highlights?
Illustration XI – Proof that we all have the same hairstyles, it seems.
Illustration XII – Proof that I look like my mother and my own hairstyle hasn’t evolved much in the last few years.
Illustration XIII – The second only day my hair looked nice. Oh and I’m drunk here. I thought it was fitting since getting drunk was how I got into this mess.
