Stupid Ass Thing I Did This Week #1

Posted September 16, 2009 by Tracy in Miscellaneous | 32 Comments

I say that it’s #1 because like celebrities dying I usually do my stupid ass things in three’s. Not sure why but I’ll have to keep you posted on what happens the rest of the week.

So what was the stupid ass thing I did? I got my hair cut last night and let my hairdresser talk me into cutting BANGS! What the everliving fuck was I thinking????? I haven’t had bangs in years and I was so very relieved, excited, happy when I grew them out and didn’t have them anymore. What wild hair crawled up and bit me that I would agree to such insanity, I ask you? I don’t have a clue.

Now, are the ugly? From an objective point of view, no. Are they annoying the shit out of me? Yes! lol Within an hour of coming home from the hairdresser’s I was screaming Death To Bangs!

This is certainly not the best picture since the little shits are very side-swept but you get the idea. I’m still trying to figure out how to “do” them.

sigh Ah well, at least I know they’ll grow. And who knows – maybe I’ll get used to them.

btw – I just figured out this is my 300th post! And what a momentous one it is! lolol

  1. Coming from a hairdresser, I think the side swept bang looks great on you! Your color is fabulous, too! The only thing is, I can see you will need to blow them out. If you don't mind that, they're a keeper!!

  2. Congrats on the 300th post honey!! Yay for you!!!
    And the bangs look great! Really, I am not just saying that to be nice either… They really do! And I like the side sweep thing… wish mine would do that… That is why they will stay long, lol!!
    Have a great day! And you look great!

  3. Barbara – I completely forgot you're a hairdresser! Duh. lol Thanks for the kind words – I think it will take a lot of time to get used to these puppies – if I ever do.
    The camera at work always makes my hair look REALLY red. It's not that read in real life – much lighter. At least you can't see the grey! lol

    Cecile – Yeah the side swept look needs to be put to rest for me I think…or they need to grow. I've got one stray hair that keeps poking me in the eye! lol

  4. I have been so tempted to do the side-swept bang-thing, but then I remember how happy I was when I finally grew my bangs out all those years ago…..and I resist.

    They DO look nice on you though. Honest.

  5. Are you kidding? Seriously, I want to take a print out of that picture and make my hairdresser give me that cut. Last time I sort of asked for what you have but didn't get it. ANd now I want it even more!!! And we have similar hair in terms of waviness, but mine is way more boring.

    KEEP THE DO!! I know you will be embarrassed by how many people stop by and say it looks good, but they won't be lying!!!

  6. Your hair is so cute! I think the bangs look great, but I can see how they might drive you crazy. I can't stand my hair touching my face. LOL

    Love the color too. Hooray for gingers! 🙂

    Hey Tracy!

    I think you look really pretty, I love the color of your hair and the bangs suit you… 😉

    Congratulations on your 300th post, that is awesome!


  8. Christine – thanks and yes, yes I am! lol

    CJ – You're right, I'm embarrassed! lol But I thank everyone even though I hate them. 🙂 My hair is curlier than in the picture. I finger combed it while I was blow drying in a desperate attempt to tame it. That was the result. 🙂

    LB – aw – thanks!

    Anna – thanks. Yes, high school bangs – I remember those. I have to admit these look better than anything I had in HS – thanks heavens. lol

    Lea – you're a sweetie (you all are). I wish my hair was that rich looking but alas it is the camera's skewed colors that make it look that good – but thanks. 🙂

  9. My initial reaction was "WTF, didn't you just grow your bangs out??", but you look seriously cute with 'em. 🙂

    PS – Why do you call 'em bangs? We call it a fringe here in Oz.

  10. Oh little schminky girl Tracy. It doesn't much matter what anyone else says if those suckers are bugging you. Swear to God you look absolutely darling. Would we lie?

  11. Cj – I meant that I thank everyone but still hate my bangs – not everyone who commented – just wanted to clear that up. 🙂 Duh.

    Amy – it's amazing what humidity will do to your hair. Whoda thunk? lol

    Kris – I KNOW! I knew you would understand – hence the title of the blog post – Stupid ass thing I did!
    Fringe? Really…like a surrey with a fringe on top?

    Rosie – no, no you wouldn't lie – I know. But dang baby! They're pinned up at the moment – NOT a good look for me but I'm hiding behind my computer so it's all good. 🙂

  12. Congrats on the 300th post.

    I've done that a couple of times. Always with the big regret right after and then having to wait for them to grow out again, lol.
    That said, the cut including the bangs, looks very nice on you. You've also got the added bonus of the beautiful color, lucky you!
    Enjoy 🙂

  13. Your bangs look great. Just call them something else (short layers?) and then start growing them out. 😉

    I'm so overdue for a haircut, it isn't even funny, so you may not be the only one with a ponytail at the get together.

    Congrats on your 300th!

  14. Keep the look Tracy, it looks gorgeous on you! I love the side swept bangs. (LOL, I have them too, so I better like them –also trying to grow them *g* It's that one hair in the eye… grrr…)

    Congratulations on your 300th post!

  15. Lily – why do we do it to ourselves? Something told me NOT to be talked into it yet I let her go snip, snip. I can only blame myself. 🙂

    Renee – we can both have ponytails on top of our heads? Oh goodie – we'll be twins. 🙂

    Hilcia – yes! That ONE hair. I'd cut it but then that would be the stupid ass think I did this week #2 because I'd look horrible! lol
    So how long are your side-swept bangs?

  16. Well your hair looks really, really good 🙂 But I'm with you, bangs are annoying. You'll have to keep clips with you so you can clip them away 🙂

    300th post! Woohoo! Seriously, how did you do that? You've been blogging for what, a year right?

  17. Nath – thank you but you're right – totally annoying. Not sure what I was thinking but whatever. lol What's done is done. 🙂

  18. Oh and yes – over a year but 300 posts. Of course I think it should be more if I posted more reviews. I've been chastising myself. 🙂

  19. They're actually adorable. But having something that annoys the shit out of you is no fun. Just wait till you see me next week. OMG – I tried doing my highlights myself to save money. BAD idea. So BAD. The mother of all bad ideas.
