February 6 14

I just cut 8 inches off of my hair.

And got banged. Again.

I needed this.

I promise it’s not any kind of cry for help thing. I just really wanted a change. When you have sister-wife long and fine hair, winter is kind of a jerk. There’s the problem of static—in which I always looked just on the wrong side of science experiment meets the Bride of Frankenstein—and then there’s the whole “HELP MY HAIR IS CHOKING ME!” problem ever time I slept and/or removed my scarf.

Long hair can be dangerous, is what I’m saying.

And I really, really missed having bangs.

Of course I did. Since just this past week I finally finished growing them out.

Please, if you will, ignore the fact that I may or may not have had this identical haircut in 1994—Oh, 10th grade, you were not a good look for me. I believe it was the haircut that my mother to this day refers to as “The Eskimo look.” But it’s better now. There’s decidedly less plaid flannel and giant too-big-for-me Stone Temple Pilots t-shirts and oversized floor-length jean skirts and  Doc Marten steel-toed combat boots and slouchy colored socks.

God help us all.

I’m older, wiser, more confident…I can pull this off a little better than teenageAli ever could.

Also, now I don’t have to get my eyebrows threaded.

    Thank you!

    It’s from J.Crew. It was my favorite after-Christmas purchase last year. I wear it…too much.

  7. Yes, that sweater was highly distracting. I wanted to expand the photo so I could see more of it! Bangs look great – I refuse to agree that your hair is fine though {whimper}

  8. I love it. I typically miss my bangs as soon as I grow them out too… which means I’m about to cut some new ones too. But the rest of my hair is not getting a cut likely until it gets warm. I need the natural scarf effect for the rest of the cold dark new england winter!

  12. They look great. I’m afraid you will have to trim them every 17 minutes, but worth it!

    ali replied on

    Indeed. Probably every 14 minutes, even.
    Luckily my hairdresser is only a few minutes away and offered to trim them for free whenever I want. Hopefully I won’t be too lazy to take her up on it. :)

  14. You look so hot in the last picture! Hottie.
    You look great either way, bangs or no bangs.
    I can never pull off bangs because God cursed me with curly hair. Unless of course I had a hairdresser in my pocket. Oh, how I’d love a hairdresser to follow me around all day long!

  17. Oh I so relate. Cut almost the same amount off mine last week. Can’t stand the dry winter static cling. Bounce won’t even matte this mop down in winter. And the flannel shirts? Dear god, no one will ever believe I actually once had a sexy bod…hidden under all that flannel

  18. It looks SO great! I love bangs, but I’d look like a deranged poodle if I cut mine short. ;)

  19. Is that a Lindsay plaid flannel shirt from LL Bean? I think I had the same one in 1994!
