hair advice and a blog giveaway
I've been thinking a lot lately about doing a blog giveaway and have decided to make it self centered and selfish and such.
As I mentioned in my last post, I was sick for multiple weeks and was unaware that my bangs had grown out to such an unattractive length. These bangs were a mix of an experiment and an accident. My mom is always on me about cutting my bangs. She wants me to do the "Audrey Hepburn" look but my hair has become quite wavy lately and just won't do it. Or didn't do it so I decided to make them straight across Blair Waldorf bangs which looked especially bad on my round face and I ended up with crooked, unphotogenic pin-up style bangs. I swore I would let them grow out (which they have) and get them professionally cut. But now i am TORN.
I also realize that I didn't take many pictures of my bangs when they were fixed. So I only have one or two bad photos of them in their glory.
Here is where the blog giveaway comes in. Leave me a comment telling me how I should or what I should do with my bangs. Cut them really short and fifties? Grow them out and sweep them to the side? OR should I chop my ridiculously long hair off like the last photo? I'm getting kind of old for such long locks? perhaps? (It's to my waist currently)
In return, I will write your names on bits of paper and draw a name and give you a pair of vintage button bobby pins. In the theme of pulling hair and bangs back, I thought they were an appropriate giveaway. Plus my camera is dead and my new camera refuses to let me upload new photos so I'm left with the understanding that my photos stink. I can't take better photos of these particular bobby pins and they photograph terribly. They are really really pretty in real life and some of my favorites. I think they are a good prize. And shouldn't cost too much for me to ship ;)
So comment away. There is no right or wrong answer. And there aren't really any good pictures so it's mainly just for fun and I probably won't take your advice anyway. haha. Just comment with an opinion and I'll enter you in my drawing. What fun!
here are my bangs in order from newest (all grown out and wavy) to oldest.
and here is what they would look like more grown out and side-swept.
and here is what it looked like MANY years ago when i first started growing out my hair. i would need to cut about seven inches to get to this length.
Also. If you're interested, check out my other vintage button bobby pins and rings that I have for sale in my vintage store :)
