The Bang Conundrum…

Hey guys, Christa here. Every year around this time, when the weather gets cooler, the humidity goes away and the clothing gets cozier, the idea that *this is the right time for bangs* sneaks into my head. I did bangs once, in college (seen at the end of this post), but I just kind of hacked them myself. I’m thinking that if I actually go through with this, that I’ll set up an appointment and get them cut by a professional, ha.

Here are the photos I’ve been seeing that are making me crave bangs…

Or it might just be that I just want to be Alexa Chung…


What do you think? Should I do it?! It’s only hair 🙂

And because you were dying to see what I looked like with bangs (plus some side bang action) in college…

Have you guys been able to master the half-bun yet?! We haven’t, but damn we’re gonna keep trying! It looks so effortlessly chic and we’ve been seeing it everywhere (California, we’re looking at you.) It’s a great transitioning-to-fall look before it gets too chilly and we have to start wearing beanies full-time. Any tips or tricks for making it look so easy? We’d love to know!
