no one in my family even has a mustache

My shortish hair cut is not making me feel all that chic lately. I keep styling it new ways (read: putting it in a stubby ponytail sometimes) and trying to make myself like it more as it grows out, but I should probably just leave it alone.

The other day, I got this idea to trim my little side-swept bangs with a beard and mustache trimmer. I thought, oh they'll look professional and cute instead of all straight across and kindergarteny like they do when I use the kitchen shears! (Why didn't someone remind me that I probably should not be cutting my own bangs if those are my two trimming tool options?)
I fired it up and immediately made a wrong turn and took off a big chunk of non-bang hair.

So... uh... I have kind of straight-across-my-head-non-sideswept bangs now. That I cut myself. With a mustache trimmer.

I want to look all pretty and sweet and long-eyelashy in them like Anna Karina:

But I don't know guys... I just don't know.

I might look more like this:


Or, um, this:



Or even worse... like me in tenth grade.

(long dramatic shudder)

You will not be getting a picture of me in tenth grade.

And because I can't blog about giving myself bangs without showing them to you...


Uh, did I ruin my hair? I mean, I did cut them on accident. With a beard and mustache trimmer. A beard and mustache trimmer that CAME FREE WITH THE PURCHASE OF SOMETHING ELSE.

Notice I am wearing my blackest eyeliner to pretty them up?

I'm gonna go hide now.

Update:

I "fixed" them with "scissors"... better right? I think they look less like an accident. Which is kind of an important feature of bangs.

  1. I think you look cute! I like em! You did a good job @ keeping them straight. I've been contemplating bangs myself for quite some time now and I am so nervous to take the plunge. I have lots of cow licks. haha so embarasing. So I keep it on the longer side.

  2. could you be any prettier? I love the bangs. You could be wearing a hairpiece and you would still look great.

  3. I like them :) Really, I think they are pretty cool actually. Things always look worse to the person who did them. I also really have bangs on the brain right now. I asked Jasmine to give me some a couple of weeks ago...you will notice that I remain bangless.

  4. I think you look darling, in both the 'before' and 'after' photo. Your bangs are what I would love for mine to look like! Thanks a lot, curly cowlicks; they split right down the middle.

  5. I think they look like an accident in a cool way. You know what I mean? Sometimes bangs are far too concise in their cut, but these look kinda choppy and self done in a really rad way.

    But the fix is good.

  11. I think you look adorable!! You are so pretty!!! If I gave myself a haircut, I'd have to stick a paper bag over my head. You actually did a nice job. Although, I do agree that the scissors work better than the mustache trimmer.

  12. The new bangs are better for sure, you look great. I did like the before bangs too though. Its funny though how new bangs make old bangs look less spectacular :)
