Brittany with new bettie page style bangs


I've been thinking about bangs since December but being a round-faced girl, I was hesitant. A lot of people and beauty books say that girls with round faces should not do bangs because it accentuates the roundness in a bad way. I've done faux bangs a lot in the past and I really liked them and I see so many adorable girls with bangs and love the look. I had bangs as a kid and they remind me of being carefree, digging under rocks looking for bugs and watching cartoons while I eat my cereal.

So, I went for it on Monday night. Into the bathroom with some scissors and a comb and a few minutes later I did it! The next morning, I combed and whacked at it a little more to even it out.


It's a big change for me. I haven't had bangs since I was in 5th grade, I think. I'm still not sure if it's a good look for me or not and I can't judge by Pj's expression either.

 So girls- I know I can count on you. What do you think? Keep em or grow it out?

On a side note: Hello, to my very first dslr camera! I am loving this thing to pieces. I bought it a few weeks ago and have been spending my days reading my manual and online tutorials to figure it out. I have wanted one for years and am so pleased that I finally did it. I love photos that look like you could reach out and touch them. Mine is a Canon Rebel EOS T3 and it rocks!!

  3. I think they look super cute! I'm planning on cutting bangs soon too! The best thing about hair is that it always grows back so if you decide you don't like them, it's an easy fix.

  9. You must have an oval or heart-shape face - at least not a round if bangs are a huge no-no for round faces. You rock those bangs!

  10. They look wonderful on you!! Bet they'd look really cute curled too! I just grew my own bangs out but I'm sure one day I'll go back to 'em; they're so fun!

  11. I love any sort of bangs! Those Bettie bangs are so cool and sultry... but if you grow them you can actually go for a Swinging 60's look with side bangs :) xx

  12. I love them! This is so funny, because I have been toying with the idea of cutting bangs, because as I grow my hair out, I worry that the length makes my oval face appear longer. I just messages my cousin (a hair dresser)to see if she is available to do the deed. I'm still on the fence... should I do it too? :)
    thanks, Hannah

    1. I think you'd look super cute with bangs! Try sectioning off the hair that you would cut and pin it up or do a faux bang just to see how it would look. The good thing is, it always grows back :)

  13. I think it's lovely. As a fringe lover though, I'm biased.

  16. I think they look adorable on you, and maybe even make your blue eyes pop even more! They can be really fun. I have a love-hate relationship with bangs and the last time I cut them on a whim (last summer) I immediately started growing them out again. But I had that style of bangs for years and loved them! Though they weren't as great in hot, sticky summer. lol

  17. oh, I didnt even think of the summer! Our summers here are awful. Okay, I have 3 months to grow them long enough to pin back! :P

  20. The fringe looks lovely on you. And I'm impressed at how even you got them, not easy in my experience.

  21. I've never heard that round-faced girls shouldn't get bangs, but I think it's silly! I've had bangs off and on (mostly on) my entire life and I love them!

  25. Keep 'em!!! You look so adorable, Brittany! I held off for so long on a pixie cut because I thought having a round face would just accentuate it. WRONG! :) And those bangs only accentuate how pretty your eyes are. :)

  26. I think they bring out your eyes so well! To me, the bangs are a definite DO!

  32. You look so sweet, you really do! :)

  33. Speaking as a hairdresser, I think you look hot. The rule is not that round faces cant wear bangs, it's that each face shape has certain types of bangs that look great and certain types to avoid. You chose a great shape for your face, the way you made the bang rounded with the center being longer works great on you. Had you done a thick straight across bang it wouldn't have been as flattering, and if you had rounded the bang so that the center is shorter and the sides longer it would have made you look really round. When you get bored with them, start sweeping them to the side as they grow out, sideswept bangs are awesome for round faces.
    You did a really good job cutting them yourself. I know cutting bangs sound easy, and you don't need to be a professional to cut them, but you do need to have the talent, good hands. I can't begin to tell you how many of my clients mess up thier own bangs and I have to fix it. I think you would have made a really good hairstylist, I have learned some new tricks from your styling tutorials.
    And they do draw attention to your pretty eyes.

  34. *Said in a chanting voice as I playfully hit my fist on the table* Keep, keep, keep!!! Oh my stars, do I adore your gorgeous new hairstyle. It's so becoming, flattering, youthful and completely beautiful! I really think this might be my favourite way you've ever had your hair over the years on your blog. Again, said super enthusiastically, keep those great bangs!
