The Trials And Tribulations of Growing Out Bangs

Most of us at some point in out life have had bangs. Some people boast them as their signature hairstyle, while others of us have just dabbled. A few months ago Ashley got bangs a la Rashida Jones, and a few weeks ago FLOTUS Michelle Obama got them a la midlife crisis.

Bangs can be awesome, flattering, and convenient. But growing them out sucks. A lot. That stage where you can just almost put them behind your ears, but they’re like a millimeter too short? The worst.

In this week’s episode of Upfront With Mari, Mari talks about the current state of her hair. She is growing out her bangs, and has tried a lot of different ways to make them look acceptable, to no avail. Watch the video and see what funny things Mari has to say about the whole situation.

        Oh man, it requires so much patience! I have tried so hard to eliminate all photos of those mid-length shag months.

      i’ve had bangs since i was 16 and about every year for the past 3 years have decided to grow them out for about 3 weeks. then they hit my eyelashes and drive me nuts.
      i’m glad i have a face that looks better with bangs because i guess i’ll just have them forever.
