I’ve been trimming my own bangs exclusively for a year and doing it randomly between professional trims for about 4 years. I’ve read tutorials on how to do it, but when it comes down to it, I just start hacking away with zero methodology. And the finished product looks kind of bad almost every time. The way I know I’m done is when I tell myself “This is looking worse and worse. I’d better just stop cutting before it gets really bad.” But I just roll with it out of laziness and the anxiety/fear of interacting with my hair stylist. I haven’t gotten a haircut in 2 years so I’m just scared to go into a salon at this point because they will judge me!
Today I was eating brunch in Brooklyn and two girls at a nearby table kept looking over at me. I thought maybe they were mistaking me for someone they knew. Then one of them came over and said, “Where did you get your bangs cut? They look so cute.” I did this to myself.
