A few weeks ago, I posted about trying to create a nice blunt bang and make it work with my glasses. It was fantastic fun to hear your thoughts on my new “look,” even if I did feel slightly less than “geek chic.” I also posted a fab video about how to style blunt bangs, which it turned out was super simple to do. I’ve been wearing my bangs fairly blunt since then, sometimes swept a little to the side. But with a tiny bit of effort in the mornings, I look like this:
I know – cute, right?!
But the sad truth is that I don’t really put a lot of effort into my style a lot of the time, so I actually look more like THIS most of the time:
Aw, boo! Let’s call this “Katie’s Sad Hair.” Bit of a difference between the two photos – not even mentioning the fact that I am wearing contacts right now because my glasses weren’t cutting it in the bright Florida sunshine today, even being WalMart’s best transitions lenses. Clearly WalMart are lying bastards! Or my eyes are just super sensitive. Whatevs.
(Also – I am getting twitchy noticing that I’ve managed to create a total run-on sentence which also happens to be a sentence fragment and not a real sentence at all… Seriously – I hate being a grammar Nazi sometimes, and my greatest fear is that my blog will one day turn into an incoherent mess featuring fAke ritin’ witch is totes misspelled & lyk compleeeetly gramatically uncorrect. 4 reals ya’ll.)
So anyway, I was asked to watch and post ANOTHER video about styling bangs, and I figured this time I’d show you the results. Because I’m awesome like that. So here goes.
Easy, no? Wet the bangs, blow them out with a funky comb, add a couple of pins and a headband and BIBBITY BOBBITY BOO!
Except I don’t have a headband handy right now, and I’m too lazy to go and get one. In fact, I’m not even using my normal styling tools, as they are all downstairs in the master bathroom, and really I just would rather walk the four feet to the kids bathroom and do it there. So no photos of the wet to dry stages here.
BUT – here I am de-banging myself.
Behold my stunning lack of success…
Wait – what do you mean you don’t see any pins in my hands?
What do you mean you don’t think I really blew-dry my hair?
What do you mean you think I just took a few photos of my greasy hair and pretended to follow the video?
I mean… really! Come on! I have never been so insulted… I plan to talk to my lawyer about this. I’m calling him right now, and I’m going to totally sue you for insinuating I can’t follow directions…
Okay, fine, you win. I didn’t actually wet my bangs or blow them dry. I just kind of finger combed them sideways. But the grease is almost like wetting them down! And my bobby pins are SO FAR AWAY. I’d have to go ALL THE WAY downstairs, and then the KIDS would see me, and they’d be all like, “Mama mama mama mama,” and Mark would be like, “Are you done blogging YET? Because these kids are like totally hard work.”
And frankly, if I could deal with all of that drama, then I would have already done my hair today instead of going on day three without a proper wash…
Anyway, the video gives me big ideas for tomorrow, and maybe I’ll actually take the time to do my hair for once. But probably not. Hope you enjoy it anyway!
