I knew it was a bad idea.
I KNEW the second I walked into the mall salon for a 5:00 walk-in…
this would not end pretty.
I knew using a hairstylst I had never met before was a terrible plan.
I knew her leopard print floor length skirt and Farrah Fawcett hair with a curly back was a bad sign.
WHY didn’t I listen to that still, small, fashionable voice in my head whispering “dooonnttt dooooo itt” ???
because I’m stupid.
because I let Pinterest and photos of actual GOOD bangs trick me into thinking I could pull it off.
Bangs aren’t for everyone.
and this is why.
Go ahead. Laugh. I am too. Half out of sadness and half “IS THIS REAL LIFE?!?!”
I texted a couple of my friends a photo directly after leaving the salon.
I look like a Beatle with a mullet.
They tried so hard not to laugh.
“hahahaha, okay yeah, that’s bad”
“it’s a little poofy on top..”
“worst thirty three dollars ever”
and my favorite was my little brother Jacob. He never holds back.
Thankfully I was able to do a little bit of damage control.
I went home, dyed it, and pulled half of it back.
It wasn’t easy considering 70% of my entire head is now sitting on top in a bowl shape.
It’s actually pretty hilarious. I mean really, all you can do is laugh.
So if you have friends considering bangs, share this post with them.
