So I remember back in the day when we all grew our bangs out so we didn’t have them. I was about 8 or 9 years old even. It was right after the big 80’s hair craze!
Now bangs are becoming cool again, but a lot of people either have the long swooping bangs or no bangs at all. A couple years ago before I was in Tbug’s life I guess she decided she didn’t want bangs and her mom let her start growing them out. But the bad thing then and even still today is she constantly has hair in her face. It drives me nuts!
I’m constantly telling her to get her hair out of her face and once I can’t stand it anymore I tell her to go pull her hair up in a ponytail. And when she says she can’t see things, it’s generally because she has hair in her face, so at that point she has to pull it up into a ponytail.
She is such a pretty girl as long as she doesn’t have hair in her face (ok and even then she is pretty but come on, the hair in the face doesn’t help).
So anyway the other day I had my hair half pulled up (you know the sides up, the back down). My bangs aren’t quite long enough to stay back or tuck behind my ear but almost. but my hair generally stays out of my face. I’ve been without short bangs long enough I know how to keep them out of my face and they are fairly trained to stay back. If that doesn’t work out come the bobby pins.
So we were at dinner over the weekend and my bangs fell to just even on the side of my head with my eyes. Like so (maybe a bit further toward my face, but not in my face):
This is generally where they tend to stay; remember if they fall in my face, I pin them back etc. But Tbug looks at me and goes “Get your hair out of your face.”
We all just about died laughing. I guess we know what I’m constantly telling her. Although mine is nothing like hers!
