I cut my hair off in April of this year and after kicking myself about it, I straightened it for at least 2 months. It looked great straight. But I have naturally curly, problematic hair that when short, puffs out all around and goes flat on top. Triangle head. Very attractive.
Fast forward 8 months and it’s time for a trim and shaping. I also decided to try out bangs, and have my color done (I started covering my grey finally in July of this year, and have been doing it myself at home). Enter livingsocial.com. They had a deal at Code, one of San Francisco’s Aveda Salons. I’m a true believer in the quality and skill of Aveda professionals, so I snatched it up.
The last time I had bangs I was 8 years old. Or was it 11? Regardless, it was a traumatic experience. The hairdresser, for some unknown reason, cut them wide: spanning from directly over each ear to meet in the middle. They were also a good half inch above my eyebrows. There is no photographic evidence left from this disappointing period of my life. Yes, I actually did destroy all the photos.
Saturday was the big day!
By the way, this post is totally unsponsored. I’m truly a fan of Livingsocial and Aveda. If you’re in the Bay Area and looking for a new salon these two ladies (above) are friendly, skilled young professionals building their clientele. I will definitely be back to see them both!
Do you have bangs, or would you consider getting them?
