    @Missknicole:  can you curl just the bangs to the side and then bobby pin them/hairspray them stuck? I hope you can semi picture what I am thinking…Tried to find a picture that could embody the idea but had no such luck

    Why do you need to start growing them out? I have my bangs at the highest point of the bridge of my nose and I am wearing them to the side (side swept) for the wedding.

    If you have time to grow them out that is one option. If they are side swept there seems to be a lot out there for side bangs. 

    If you have blunt bangs I think this is super pretty:

    @Missknicole:  I voted “grow them out” and then I remembered that Zooey Deschanel is the classiest, most gorgeous person ever!

    @ceebree:  I don’t mean this to sound offensive, but I think Zooey is one of the only people who can pull this blunt bangs look off. It’s the same idea of someone bringing a picture into a salon with the idea that the haircut will make them look like the person they are trying to copy. 

     

     

    @Missknicole:  OP, I would grow your hair out, or at least aim for a longer side bang. The truth of it is that you will have way more options when it comes to style with longer hair, and you can always cut it back to how you like it later if you decide to. I had shorter hair that I loved but I painstakingly grew mine out for my wedding in two weeks and after my hair trial I was so glad I did!

    @Missknicole:  I love my blunt bangs!! I hate when they are pinned back. It doesnt look like me. Unless you are insanely sweaty you should be fine. You can always pre emptively out in dry shampoo to soak up any oils. Also bring blotting papers for your forhead.

    @Missknicole:  I’ve been growing and trimming it for about a year since we got engaged and it’s already at covered boob level lol.  So it got a lot longer than it was.  I honestly think long hair is less high maintanence than shorter styles because shorter ones always need to be styled.  With my long hair, I can blow dry it and go, throw it up in a messy bun, let it air dry without it looking funky, etc.

    You do whatever you want with your hair. I don’t understand why people insist that brides grow out their hair. I could understand if you wanted some complicated updo, but they should just work with your hair as-is, not insist on some preconceived notion of what a bride “should” look like. 

    I have side swept bangs and they’ll be side swept on the wedding day, just like they are every day.

    @Missknicole:  I would either grow them out a little so they can be swept to the side or pin them into your ‘do with bobbypins 🙂

    @Missknicole:  I’ve had bangs (or a fringe as we call them where i’m from) for nearly 10 years now and I certainly don’t wear them out all the time! A good stylist should easily be able to style it off your face if you don’t want it out on the day.

     

    I don’t want mine out on the day in case it’s windy/hot etc. so i’ll be styling mine to the side – the reason I say your stylist should easily be able to do this is because I frequently style my fringe msyelf so it’s off my face and I can hide it completely – you can’t even tell I have it!

     

    If you don’t want to grow it out (which I tried for the first time last year and hated it, it gets to a really awkward length and I actually really missed my usual style!) depending on the hair style you want on the day you should be able to keep it short but off your face 🙂

     

    Just as an idea, this is the style I’ll probably go with – a mix of product, hairspray, rollers and back-combing can easily achieve something like this even with a fringe! (and yes, this is a screen shot haha it’s my fav version of this style!)

    and just an FYI – Kim K also had bangs at the time of this shot 🙂
