Bang, Bang

I got bangs!
Yes, I did!

For those that don't know me personally I had a pixie haircut about 10 years ago. My hair was only a few inches long. It was very cute but I wanted my long mane back and started the grueling process of growing out my hair.
Along this 10 year path of growing my hair out it has been blonde, red and brown. I have had short bangs, long bangs and no bangs. Most recently I have had no bangs and hair almost to my waist.
Oh yeah and gray hair only in the front :-/
How to you hide gray hair only in the front? Wearing a ponytail is definitely not the way. I do nails so I am pretty much in a ponytail everyday of my life. So you really have 2 choices to hide that gray hair.
1) is to color it every 2 weeks. This is a great idea since I do work with a hairdresser. A very busy hairdresser who hardly has time for her own hair let alone try to fit me in when I only work 3 days a week and have my own clients.
Option 2? BANGS, bangs. Really? Bangs. Well ok then bangs it is!

I looked like this a few weeks ago:

Here is the cut I showed my hairdresser (and very good friend who I knew could totally do this exact cut)
This is Amanda LeBlanc of The Amanda's a show I just love!

Pam cut about 3 inches off the ends, colored it a dark, dark brown (love) and cut fabulous bangs.

Here is the after picture I sent hubby on his cell phone :-)

and another after pic:

So there you have it, I got bangs!
See you tomorrow for my Finally Friday reveal, rocking my totally awesome haircut!

Cute, cute cut!!
I haven't had bangs since high school when I decided to grow my hair out to one length and I've had it all the same length (with some layers) ever since. You are much braver than I!!
