Last year held a lot of depression, problems, and generally being stuck in a rut. Things have begun to move forward in such a way that I felt I needed a little ‘makeover’ to reflect that. I wanted something simple, but strong. I needed a hairstyle that I could easily maintain with my hectic lifestyle, yet still look polished with. Enter the Blunt Bang.
With my limp noodle hair, there’s not much I can do to make it look great naturally. But as if magic, simply cutting my fringe into a straight-across cut to match my naturally sleek tresses (or flat, limp pieces of string as I like to yell at them most days of the week…) pulls together for a potentially signature look. I can style it just like this or I can do updos for a quirky-cute flair, or style my bangs and various ways (including my beloved Belle/Aeris bangs).
Sometimes you just need a new hairstyle to make you feel like you can take on the world. Or pretend you’re a super secret agent. Whatever floats your boat.
