She Bangs ... Faking It

I debate on getting bangs at least a couple times a year ... you know, when a fave celebrity changes up their 'do. I always think that bangs look so cute on others, if they are cut right, but I usually always chicken out in the salon chair when it comes to my turn. My hubby doesn't help in this decision process either, as he doesn't like the look of bangs.
 
 Lovin' Kourtney's new look ...

 Ashley looks hot ... simply gorgeous!
 
Emma Stone is always a fave ... so soft and cute!
 
Browsing on Pinterest, as I normally do every.single.day, I came across this pin:

 
This looked do-able. And without any cutting, this is a great way to see if I like the look without having to chop at my hair.
I got up for work this morning, and whipped this out in about 10 minutes. SUPER simple to do, although I modified a bit, being I was pressed for time.
I threw my hair up in a ponytail on top of my head. Portioned out the thickness of hair I wanted for my "bangs". Took the rest of the ponytail and secured it with another rubber band into a messy bun. I then used my flat iron to curl up the bangs a bit, added a headband with a chiffon flower to hide the hair that I pulled down from the ponytail, and sprayed my bangs with some hairspray to hold in place.



Voila!
Fake bangs at their finest!
Now the big question ........ do I like them?
 I usually don't wear my hair up on a day-to-day basis, so I would love to see if I can rock bangs with my hair down. However, I am just not in love with this look on me. It was definitely fun to try out, especially without the pressure of commitment, but I will leave this look to the others that sport it so much better!
