This morning as I was getting ready to head off to an enjoyable gossip session at coffee klatch, I decided my bangs definitely needed a trim. I figured why not do it myself again. Then I have more gossip time with the ladies. I got out the scissors, took ahold of my bangs, and went about thinking what would be the best way to do it. I decided to give a different method a go and instead of cutting them below my fingers because one end always ends up longer than the other, I decided to cut above them. Maybe this time I'd make a straight line. Maybe next time I should have a cup of caffeine first and think real hard about this experience. Not only did I cut them shorter than they've been in a long time because I didn't account for the extra bang-age in between my fingers, they were definitely on an angle and I had to even them up so they didn't look too short and on a downward slope. I now feel like when I meet someone they're thinking "wow, those are short bangs" and "who lowered your eyebrows?".
One of these days I'll learn. One of these days I'll reflect back on not only this bang trimming experience, but every other one in the past where I got a little overzealous with the project. Next time I'm going to think about it, back away from the scissors, and leave the cutting to the professionals...maybe. Smiling & Waving, Sharon
