When I was growing up, I wanted nothing more than long hair with no bangs. When I finally got my way in high school, it was so much easier to deal with than that bob cut with bangs my mom made me have. I thought my girls would always want the same. Nope. They have always wanted bangs.
They needed a hair cut bad. So I called the lady that usually cuts our hair but there was a message stating that she wasn't taking new clients and she never called me back. Since we see her about every year and a half for her cheapest service, I probably wouldn't have called back either. I had just read about people who reading instructions for cutting hair on the Internet and doing it themselves and I decided to give it a try.
In order to get them to allow me to cut their hair, I had to promise bangs. The haircuts are far from professional looking but they are 6 and 9 years old so they really don't care as long as they have the long discouraged bangs.
