Pole Dancing and Bangs

Last weekend at the cabin as we were all sitting around the campfire drinking booze, we decided to play “Truth or Dare.” As a matter of fact, it wasn’t JUST “Truth or Dare”, it was “Truth, Dare, Double-Dare, Promise or Repeat.”

The long of the short of it is that I was “Dared” to do a pole dance. With a rake.

Now, I could probably throw out a few moves that would rival even the most seasoned skanky stripper, but the problem there was, the rake wasn’t attached to anything. So essentially I just shimmied up and down the rake in a most drunk, obnoxious, and most probably non-sexy way. Thankfully, my audience was also drunk so they thought it was brilliant.

[Note to self: Strip in front of drunk people.]

Speaking of dare, I went to my hair stylist yesterday for my scheduled appointment. I was fully intending to go in and do something drastic. More specifically, I wanted to get an inverted bob.

She talked me out of it.

She said she just loves my hair and I shouldn’t do something THAT drastic right away. With that being said, I still wanted something different, so I gave her control and she cut me some bangs.

I haven’t had BANGS since the 1st grade, and I’m not so sure how I feel about them. I mean, they look great when I have my hair pulled back, but when it’s all down I feel like I look like Joe Dirt.

OK, so it’s not THAT bad, and I don’t have a mullet, I guess I’m just not used to them.

Thankfully my hair grows fast.

It’s only hair.

You should take a picture so we can see. :)

Are they long bangs or short? I'm sure they look pretty. I'm sort of surprised that your hair stylist talked you out of a change. I think mine would love if he got to do something besides slightly alter the hue between light golden brown and dark golden blonde (ha!) or change the proportions of my long layers. Where is her sense of adventure?

Even if you grew sideburns and a goatee AND you were holding a broomstick, there's no way you'd look like Joe Dirt. I'm sure it looks just fab.

Thanks again for your car-help last week;)

I'm sure that you look absolutely adorable. Look! I'm optimistic again! Hooray.

Seriously, though. You probably look terrific.

I can totally picture you with bangs and I bet they look fantastic. Picture please!

A girl with a femullet writhing on a rake has always been a fantasy of mine.

Stripping up a rake allows you to cut your hair any damn way you want.

I went to the stylist on Friday and ALSO wanted an inverted bob! But alas, my hair is too fine and wouldn't have been able to pull it off as successfully as I would've liked. I did stick with the regular old BOB bob though, and had my bangs (BANGS!) thinned out, so that now they cover more of my forehead instead of mainly being swept to the side all the time (what's the point then?). I had the ends made a bit choppy, too. Very fun. Oh, and blonder highlights because hell, it's still summer and WHY NOT. I'm sure the bangs look great on you, though. You're a beautiful girl, so pretty much anything you do to your hair will look great.

BTW - that last comment from "nicole" was from me...liberal banana. the non-blogger who is doing anything not to work at the present moment.

Bangs are the new black.
