I'm at that crossroad lately that every girl is approximately every six months where it seems like it would be a good idea to get bangs. 

I mean it's a nice way to change up your look, right? Easy. Subtle. Cheaper than a full hair cut. (hey, I just got out of college, don't judge me). Bangs always seem like a good idea in theory. Taylor Swift's perfectly toulsed. Zooey Deschanel's always cute blunt. Classics like adorably retro Audrey Hepburn mini bangs. Heck, even Harry Styles with his weirdly attractive botched bangs make me think they're a good idea.

But although bangs always seem to look good on Hollywood starlets and that girl on the subway with a basket of fresh vegetables and Fall 2016's Chloe bag tossed over her shoulder... it's important to realize that:

Yeah. Bangs are never a good idea. You end up looking 15 years younger than you were before you walked in and when you wake up there's always a weird cow lick on one side of 'em. You've got to blow dry them every time you wash your hair (wow, hello annoying), and they never look as good as when you got them done in the salon (and even then they didn't look good). Not to mention they give you mad acne on your forehead that takes you 6 months to clear up.

And at that next six month point when the final pimple is gone, you decide you're ready to try bangs again. They couldn't have been that bad last time, right?

With much love,

Ahhh, even with bangs you're considering a fashion misstep, you're still a stylemaker, my dear friend! -- Different background for you ...

Sincerely yours,

Lauren, this post made me chuckle soooo much because I actually did just got bangs...LOL! Granted, I did have them 4 years ago, but I can agree 100% with everything you said, especially the horrid style you wake up with in the morning and having to blow dry them. It's definitely a leap and a risk when cutting bangs (especially if you cut them yourself....like I did) and you never know if you will love them or hate them.

That scarf looks so perfect! If only Cali could be colder lol.

hahaha for real though! I was just thinking about getting bangs cut today (Parisian Provençal anyone??) but I just think with my hair as long as it is already, having more around my face would drown me. And yeah. Acne's no fun. XP

You look pretty darn cute with bangs, though, so at least if you decide to get them, you'd look adorable as hell.

Also, I love this look, I need that sweater in my life.

Oh my goodness, I regretted getting a fringe (British name for bangs) every time I ever got them. The last time was when I was 15- never again!

I've had bangs in one form or another since I was 13. I have blunt bangs right now. I love them. XD I think I look hella weird without them. (And I look like a child regardless. So I embrace it. hahaha)

I also never have a problem with forehead acne. I must just be lucky!
