Hi! So I have this new obsession that I want bangs! Haha! Never had them before but needing a change! 🙂 I’m sure everyone can relate to that!! Anyway, I have had two close friends who do hair tell me I’m crazy to do it before my wedding because who knows how my hair will grow back or if I will even like it! But my wedding is in 6 months! My hair grows pretty quick, too. Any one want to offer some advice? Talk me out of it? Talk to me into it? Lol 🙂

@Mick26: I say go ahead and get them! now is the time to do it because if you dont like them they can grow back and if you do then you can just retouch them for the wedding 🙂

Bangs can be fun, but keep in mind that they require chronic maintenance. I got bangs cut back in April, and after a week I was sick of them. They are finally almost grown out (6 months later.) I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to styling and I quickly got sick of having to style them every day. Also, after a week or 2 they were always in my eyes – they drove me CRAZY at the gym or while trying to read. Lastly if you like them you will have to constantly go back to your stylist (like every 2 weeks) and have them trimmed

@Mick26: Don’t do it!!! If you’ve never had bangs, and your hair is long, it will take YEARS before you get that length back again. And depending on how much hair you have, getting bangs means you will have less long pretty hair to work with when you get married….and a lot of awkward-length pieces to deal with at your wedding. Bangs also start looking mussy/sloppy quickly, so if you generally like to wear your hair in a pony tail and have that camouflage hair mussiness, you will lose that option with bangs.
I say all this because I have fine hair, and had bangs my whole childhood, and I always hated them. I had to fuss with them constantly and there was always some wacky problem with them. I have short hair and bangs now that I love…but that is only because I have accepted that my hair type makes having long hair impossible and have a VERY good hairdresser!

do it. bangs grow out quickly and you have plenty of time to decide if you like them and to try different lengths/styles.

I wouldn’t do it. You’ve never had them and risk not looking yourself on your wedding day if they don’t grow out fast enough. You don’t want to be stuck with halfway grown out bangs.

@Mick26: Don’t do it. Bangs are a serious committment. I have bangs, and they are a pain. I am constantly wanting to grow them out, but I have a large forehead (think Tyra). I look better with bangs.
Anyway, my sister has tried bangs “for a change” 3 times in the last couple years, and HATES it every time. Don’t bother doing it if it’s just “for a change.” There are plenty of options that are less permanent to offer a change of pace (highlights, semi-perm color, layers, or plenty of fun hair accessories.)
Also, you can go on Pintrest and get a thousand different ways to style your hair. Maybe playing with different styling options will give you the change you need.

I do this every couple of years. Think that I want bangs, cut them in, and HATE them every time. They are so much work! My “bangs” are now below my chin and this is the happiest I’ve been with them in a long time.

@Mick26: I think you have plenty of time to grow your bangs out if needed!

Do it! I cut bangs too after not having them for probably 20 years or so, and they grow back so fast! You have nothing to worry about.
