Bangs: An Analysis

bangsLast weekend, I got me some bangs. I have had them for approximately five days and they have already changed my life — for worse and for better (like marriage!). Here’s why:

The Good:

The bangs, overall, are quite lovely. I look exactly like Zooey Deschanel with bangs. In fact, people have stopped me on the street and they are all like, “Omg,  are you Zooey Deschanel??” and I am all like, “Oh, hehehe yes no. It’s just my amazing bangs!”

So that is good.

The Bad:

I have prided myself in waking up (about) thirty minutes before I need to leave my apt to get to the office on time each morning. That thirty minutes is usually broken down as follows:

  • 7:31: After hitting the snooze button a million times I emerge groggily from my bed looking like a monster
  • 7:31- 7:34: Get dressed
  • 7:34-7:52: Complain to myself about how tired I am and how everything is the worst.
  • 7:52 – 7:57: Brush teeth
  • 7:57 – 8:09: Eat breakfast (Yes, I know I should brush my teeth after breakfast, but I have an unbreakable routine. The idea of breaking this delicate a.m. order is unthinkable.)
  • 8:09: Leave

You will notice that “do my hair” is not a line item. Because, during the week, I do not do my hair. I usually wake up, throw my hair into some bootleg version of the topknot and resume complaining about my tiredness.

With bangs, all of this has changed. I must now do my bangs. Which requires complex tools like a flat iron and heat protection spray. Now, I still don’t do the rest of my hair (that’s asking too much). But I must make sure I give my bangs the love and attention they need and deserve. This also means that my morning has been entirely thrown off and I have to cut down on my morning complaints by about five minutes.

So that’s not as good.

The end.

  1. Your bangs (and the rest of your hair, too) are so cute! Definitely worth upsetting the morning routine a little, IMHO. Besides, you can always add your morning complaints to blog posts, and your loyal readers will commiserate with you :-)

  2. Our morning routines are eerily similar, though I usually spend at least 8-11 minutes pre-bed-emergement thoroughly considering all options on how to avoid whatever it is I have to do.

    That’s where the similarities end though. I look like Boo from Monsters Inc when I have bangs. You look like a supahmodel.

  3. I totally understand you! My hair is ridiculously thin, so it takes me tops 10 minutes to blow dry, straighten, and style my hair. I can’t imagine having to take any longer than that!

  6. LOL! That extra five minutes is worth because you look great with bangs! I on the other hand need at least 15 minutes extra if I’m going to do anything with my hair other than a pony. Otherwise, my hair is like a wet blanket.

  7. Tee hee! I love your sense of humor — keepin’ it real! Loving the bangs btw. D:) — that’s a smiley face w/ bangs

  8. bahahahah i am dying. the best. hilarious. LOVE the bangs.

    very cute, but I hate to break it to you: bangs are even more work during the hot humid days of Summer (still worth it though!)

  10. Those bangs look amazing on you! I can’t remember my life without bangs so I agree that they are slightly more high maintainence to look after.

  11. I love the bangs! And I actually heard on GMA once that it’s best to brush your teeth BEFORE breakfast, because breakfast-y foods and drinks (like orange juice) are actually really acidic so brushing protects the enamel. So you’re good.
