Well, I did it! Yesterday I went to my favorite hair stylist (if you are in the OKC area I'll pass her info on to you if you want, she's fantastic) and got my bangs back.
It's been less than 24 hours and I'm still mostly happy with the decision. Mostly because I'd forgotten what a pain it is to pull the bangs back to wash your face and because it was hot last night when I got in my car and the forehead sweat began. But other than that, I'm loving them so far! Everyone else seems to be liking them too. I went to Sonic after my hair cut and the cute little car hop told me I was very pretty, which is just the encouragement I needed after the big hair decision :)
Now if you need me, I'll be over here messing with these bangs. They take some getting used to!
