Straight bangs transformation-- Straight bangs for round face!

Hello hello beautifuls!

OMG. GUESS WHAT. After careful consideration XD I decided to cut my bangs. HAHAHA omg. I know I said I didn't want bangs anymore, but being bang-less is just not a good look for me (hair looks really flat). And since I don't really want to spend money at the salon yet (although I really want a haircut cuz my layers have grown out!) I decided to give myself a little makeover ^_^ (that ought to put off my salon trip for a little while XD)

So yeah... straight bangs. They look good in photography, but straight bangs really isn't the best style for me considering my body proportions and height. Since straight bangs do take some height off me (basically the illusion of more height provided by the forehead) and I look really short and stout with straight bangs XD oh well. It will grow out soon enough so I'm not worried.

In my video I'm gonna explain how I cut my straight bangs, catered especially for girls like me who have round face, and who are terrified of getting straight bangs because they might make your face look rounder. This is completely avoidable, if you follow some basic rules ^_^ ONE basic rule, actually.

I did write a post about getting straight bangs a very long time ago. Same principle applies. If you're curious, read it here. But I figured it's more clear to see how it's done.

Before I cut my bangs, I was so sick of my heavy, over-long bangs hanging around my face like a freaking curtain, that I kept wearing it up

My hair is finally long enough that I could put it up in a bun thing

Okay now enough of rambling, let's get on with the video!


Sorry I kept playing the same music over and over again XD I was too lazy to pick a new song and at the same time I thought all the silence in the video is kind of boring XD And yes you guys had no idea I was really nervous whilst making this film... I never cut my hair in front of anybody, ESPECIALLY under time pressure for the length of the video >_< hahah.

And remember, you can always go back to trim/fix it after ^_^ I did snip off more stray hairs the next day (cut it two days ago).

Hope some of you find it helpful!

<3 Frances

    I had straight bangs, but I got tired of it so I swept it to the side ^^;
    It really suits you though!

  2. You look SOOO gorgeous! I got bangs as well.. I tried the whole growing-them-all-out thing, and it just didn't work for me >_<" It kept parting weird and stuff, so I'm keeping my messy bangs for now! hehe! : D

  4. you look sooo cute w/ 妹妹頭!!! >< I have a round face too but I can never cut it to look good! ): & I have like a permanent part where I always used to part my hair! haha~ I can never get that part to go away! Even if i take a shower, it automatically flips back to my part when I sleep x__x boooo!! I want to have that little V triangle shape where I have my bangs but my part always gets in the way! ):
    Next time I think I will try cutting it between my eyebrow arches when my hair grows out!~ haha~ that's really smart!! I never knew it made a difference~ haha I always thought my face was just too big/round >< I just trimmed my current bangs yesterday and I think I cut them too short o___o but then I agree about what you said when you said in the video that the day after you cut your hair/bangs is when it looks the worst! XD hahahaha~ I look so 呆呆 right now!!! ahhhhhhh~ I don't like it when my bangs are too short >< I hope it will look better tomorrow!
    & you still look good with long bangs! omg I look like the grudge when my bangs are too long...~ hahaha~ I think it's cause i have black hair and it's all dark and creepy looking T__T

  5. hahah thank you ^_^ but I'm kind of regretting it now >< just a little bit. I like side-swept bangs better; it just suits my personality better (straight bangs is like too cute for me XD) but it will grow out soon enough XD hehe I kind of want to see you with straight bangs ^_^ although I think your hair looks really great now!

  6. haha but bangs is a good luck for you!! I think having long long bangs would've worked for me if I go to the salon and have the rest of the hair layered out better so my head wouldn't look so flat :T but it's too late now >__< hahaha

  7. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO he's mine >< hahahahah XD

  8. hahaha omg did you realize... none of the Asian ghosts have dyed hair!!! they ALWAYS ALWAYS have pitch black hair... XD I remember I was a bit sad when I first dyed my hair cuz then I couldn't put my hair over my face to scare my friends anymore >< (haha some friend I was XD that was before I got bangs of course lol) did you try blow-drying your hair while it's wet to set the shape?!?!??????? heat helps! If I wake up in the morning and that V shape is messed up I just wet my hair and blow dry it, you could try that...???
    But I'm regretting a little bit with straight bangs >_< it's so not me. My personality isn't that "cute and girly" XD
    If you did try it, do let me know how it turns out for you! I remember when I first got straight bangs at a salon I was MORTIFIED cuz my face looked FAT. So I gave up on straight bangs for the longest time. Then I did more research and came up with this observation and it's really working for me ^_^ <3

  12. Frances! I think I haven't been commenting for quite some time. I do drop by to read when I see updates but they're all speed reading. Wooh... I'm at my busiest ever. I'm not bz with work per se. Even during non work hours, I would be busy researching on stuff and just trying to do other work other than work. Oh my that sounds like a mouthful. Yeah anyway, you cut your bangs really well. Now I feel silly going to the salon to cut my bangs. I would cut it myself every now and then when it gets a little too long but once in a while, I've to go back to the salon as the shape would be quite spoilt by me after a few rounds of self cut. As for you, you cut it from long to short. Amazing! I'm gonna try cutting my own as much as possible from now on.

  13. Hello Jo!!! OMG long time no talk indeed!!! I think I haven't checked any blogs for like... 2 full weeks? >_< I cannot believe you're still busy! I just quit my job so I'm less busy now lol. But school is still kicking my ass haha. Nah I still like to go to the salon to get my bangs done =D so they flow better with the rest of my hair. I found that when I trim my own bangs they grow out their length super fast, but if I get them trimmed at a salon then the cut would last longer. I suppose I need to learn more techniques XD and I think it's kind of sad that I'm cutting my own bangs >_< something I started to do ever since I moved to US cuz good haircuts here are so expensive T_T

  14. I have tendered my resignation too. But from all my plannings now I think I'll be very bz living life to the fullest. Hope your time away from work would allow you to concentrate on your studies. I thought you've graduated and was working in the pharmacy line. Did you do some post grad or masters or something? I agree about the hair cut in US. I cut my bangs and sides ONLY for USD30 not inclusive of tips but it was my best fringe and sides haircut ever so I've got no regrets. I know I would be like you cutting own fringe too if I lived in the States.

    Hope you find the time to balance your life!

  15. Aw, at least using every minute in your life well is better than wasting it not doing anything =D just don't get sick again from being so busy! Yes I graduated last year and had been working at an infusion pharmacy until last week. But at the same time I was (and am still) taking this microbiology class at a community college. It's for prereq for pharmacy school (you can still be admitted as long as you finish it before their deadline with a passing grade!) I forgot to take it cuz I thought it was the same thing as general bio =_= why am I so not surprised... lol XD it's all good I will be done in a week ^_^ hehe I remember about you telling me about that best fringe cut in NYC! =D $30 just for bangs?! I wonder what a full haircut would cost O_O but I would loveee to get a haircut in NY >< the leading city of fashion and style O_O+++

  16. can u say how to straight my curly bangs into straight without starighner

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi there girl! Hmmm how curly is your hair?????? I have naturally straight hair so I can't say if my method would work for you..... but I would comb my bangs really straight after I washed it and just let it dry like that. My hair usually keeps its shape really well though. If that doesn't work for your hair type then I'm sorry I honestly don't know how you could do it without heat >_< but one option would be getting your hair chemically treated/permed straight if you're sure you want it to stay straight all the time.

  18. Is square-round type shape of face good with this type of bangs? Just wanna ask. :) Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi Chubunni!
    Honestly I really think it's all about preference. do you like the squareness in your face structure? because bangs to tend to draw attention to the shape of the lower part of your face (in my opinion). if you like the squareness then have your bangs a little wider so the angle will show. if not, just be careful with the width of your bangs, keep them narrower so you can use the rest of the hair to hide the angle of your jaws (kind of like what I did in this video). you can always try to hold up your hair and "fake" the bangs and see if you like it/how wide and narrow your bangs should go before you cut it :D hope this helps! :)
