faux bangs


to cut or not to cut? that is the question i won’t be asking anymore! when i saw this picture of the gorgeous Rebekka and her long healthy locks, a little light bulb went off in my head. so i tried out this look today and it’s a really fun way to change up your current cut.

just sweep your hair across the opposite side of your natural part, fasten with a few bobby pins, and there you have it!

now, if i could only find a way to master the faux bob…

    Very cute. Unfortunately for those of us with many layers cut into our long locks, this doesn’t work so well. Should I just chop all my hair off? I can’t stop thinking about it since I posted this the other day…


    I know I’m just going to chicken out though…

    I believe this is an old concept, created by men… Nice comb-over, Kate!
    Love you!

    I think that a fringe/bangs would look really lovely on you. I envy people who can pull it off! My hairline and hair texture just don’t work, but I love fringes on other people. Be brave and go the chop!
