Convertible Bangs? I don't know, you tell me...

Sorry I haven't been too active on blogger for the past week, I got caught up with too much school work and it's still not over yet because midterms and assignments are coming up too, so I apologize if I haven't been able to keep up with you girls =]. By I wanted to post this up asap and hopefully more post will come in the near future =]

SOOOOOOO.....My bangs has gotten super long to the point that they aren't bangs anymore so it was time to trim it myself again and I always wanted to try straight bangs but I never got the guts to get them because I'm a very simple and plain girl and never liked to change my style too often or too much of a change and straight bangs are already so different for me. So this time I cut myself a 2-in-1 bangs =]; straight bangs and side swept bangs. Just incase I dodn't like my straight bangs then I don't have to wait for my hair to grow back, instead I can instantly part my hair differently to convert my straight bangs to side swept bangs. This is also a great way to change up the style of your hair =]

Things I used: a comb, hair straightener, and scissors used for cutting hair only (but I left my scissors at my Mister's place so I used eyebrow scissors LOL.. yesssss the super smalllll scissors people use to trim their eyebrows with LOL they weren't sharp either so it took me a while to get my bangs how I wanted them.

How I did it in brief: I parted my hair in a semi circle (just like ahanh in the video below) to get them ready for a cut and the straighten them then cut my bangs like usual into a side swept bang  (here's a video on how to cut side swept bangs by ahanhbarbie34). Then I parted my bangs in half using only the front half to achieve my front bangs.

Okey dokey time to see some pictures!!! Let me know how I look with straight bangs and which style bangs do you think fits me more? I love both but I personally prefer the side swept bangs more than straight bangs because its easier to maintain it and maybe because I'm not used to my straight bangs yet . Straight bangs also pokes me in the eye ><(maybe I need to cut them shorter?). But anyway, this is still a nice way to try something new without compromising too much of my original side swept bangs, I can just alternate between the two styles when I feel like it =]. Btw, people said I look younger and cuter and some people even hated it LOL... let me know what you think, I won't get offended if you hate it as well lol =P or do you like my first picture with no bangs more?

A few weeks ago with out grown bangs

My new side swept bangs =], with my hair tied in a bun

With my hair out of the bun, natural messy waves?

Second option: straight bangs with my hair in a bun again

With my hair out of the bun again and I defined the curls with my hands

sooooooooooooooooooooooooo.... what do you think??? side swept bangs?, straight bangs?, in a bun?, curled?, straight?

Do you like my 2-in-1 bangs? =D and did I tell you this saves me money AND time because I don't have to go to the salon to get it done nor I have to wait a LONG time for my bangs to grow out before I can change the style? Yay!! =]

yesss cherry culture's shipp is super expensive! but my friend just so happened to be coming to canada so i had it shipped to the US since they had free shipping and she brought it over to me. i got lucky, or else i would have really considered not buying it. Shipping rates are always so bad :(

I think the 2-in-1 bang idea is awesome! I tried doing that once too when my bangs got long but it just didn't work out for me =P Personally I think you look great with the side bangs! I also love the natural curls in your hair!

In response to your comment on guu: Yes! Guu is super busy on weekends and weeknights so I usually try to go on a week day or for an early dinner =) Each plate is around 5-9$ depending on what you order, they come in small plates so I love how you can order a bunch of things to eat/try! Sadly we don't have a Diana's Seafood here, though it does sound delicious! We seriously need a good, affordable seafood place!

Haze said...

Wow, what a great idea! I personally like the side swept bangs on you too. You look really young with straight bangs. I had straight bangs once upon a time and it is so high maintenance. I had to straighten each time other wise it looks like a mess.


Pop Champagne said...

wow you cut your own hair, thats so gutsy and you did a great job! I like the side bangs, but the front bang is cute too, more vibrant and youthful. side bangs is more like mature and "pretty" I think, they both have their time!

and I'm following you now too :D

Tiffo said...

Oh don't you look pretty! (: Hmm, all of them look great but the one with your side swept bangs and hair in a bun looks best in my opinion. I've tried the look with full bangs but sadly it didn't look too great on me. Haha good job on the DIY & kudos to saving money! :D

Nat said...

Wow you look so pretty!! You have nice big eyes. And you look great with all sorts of bangs. I sometimes want bangs (I've had it before) but I don't think I have the ability to cut it right. I'm paranoid with having crappy looking bangs. But I think it's a waste to go pay to go get your bangs cut only.

Tala said...

I think you look very pretty with side swept bangs :-)
Thanks for commenting on my post btw!
