First Mistake of the New Year

Note To Self: Don't trim your own bangs.


-Don said...

Well, it's good you got it out of the way early so you don't have to keep looking over your shoulder to see when it's going to come...

PS... They'll grow back... eventually... :-D


Sheila said...

A headband or pretty barrette is a simple cure.... People will be so mesmerized by your art, they won't notice anyway.

jdr said...

Or at least phone your sister before you do and ask her if she thinks it's a good idea!!!!

rahina q.h. said...

jdr, such a trim takes place in the following way: a quick look in the mirror, a grunt, reach for the scissors, go cross-eyed and the cut is done before the brain has totally processed the drawbacks of such a procedure... then comes out the word 'darn' and then you contact Sheila to send you a lovely headband before Don gets sympathetic... and Nicki, no i wasn't there when you did it:)) r

Thanks so much for your sweet comments. Frederic Fekkai says you can do it by holding up a 16th of an inch of hair, and cutting a small piece off with a razor. I've done this in a pinch many times. I'm sure my hairdresser knows and isn't thrilled with my work, but it makes it easier to see.

I'm sure you are beautiful with any style of bangs. Let's see.

Happy New Year to you and your family.


Nicki said...

Oooooo... a 16th of an inch.... there's where I went wrong!!!

Nice to hear from you Barbara and best wishes to you and your family as well. (And you are welcome for the comments).
