Another Brick in the Wall

blue gingham, layered cardigan, a-line skirtThe sun came out in picturesque Harlem which made for bearable outfit post shoots. Hurray!

Also, you may notice that my new bangs are a bit shorter. They are because I decided to go big or go home. So I had my stylist cut them short and blunt.

However, short, blunt bangs require even more TLC than longer, swoopy bangs. For example, when I washed my hair after my stylist cut them, I didn’t realize that one has to style one’s bangs when they are wet.

Since I failed to do anything to my bangs when they were wet, when they dried they stuck out straight forward. They didn’t stick up or to side, they stuck straight forward and I looked like a full-on crazy person. Instead of simply re-wetting my bangs and starting again, I immediately began panicking and my husband thought my my Alfalfa-inspired bangs were just hilarious. Then, in my hour of need, the blow dryer and flat iron only made the situation worse. So I had to tie a scarf tightly around my head and sort of glue my bangs to my forehead and hope for the best. Luckily, the scarf worked, and in the morning all was well again with my bangs.

But now I know. Always style bangs when they are wet.
