Need Help! Bettie Page Bangs or Not To Bettie Bangs!
This was me last night before I went to bed. After my 3.5 mile run on my beloved treadmill, I decided to curl my hair with rollers instead of pin curl clips. Because my hair is on the shorter side, I have a difficult time pin curling wet hair. I can pin curl it more successfully when it is dry. So, used velcro curlers last night in the hopes of having a good curled set in the morning and instead I got this:
This is me this morning! The front part of my hair was so uncooperative! I tried doing a forward roll with curlers to try to do a faux bang look, but the result was pure disaster. I had to part my hair in the middle, re-wet the front and just pin the sides.
Despite the fact that the rest of my hair curls well, the front, ie bangs/fringe, is just rude! I had Bettie Page bangs before and they were so easy. I just blew dry and flattened with my ceramic iron and I was done. Now, I find myself frustrated. I am also finding myself taking too much time getting ready for work in the morning because of this. Here I am in 2007 with Bettie bangs:
This is a style I found and I think this is what I may want if I do get bangs again:
So, I know I am asking a lot of your girls but, should I just say "forget about it" and get Bettie bangs again? Do you girls think Bettie bangs with a Middy would work? I saw a late 40s education short recently and the teacher featured in it (it was about kids keeping tidy and neat) had a longer Middy with bangs. I am not sure. There is a part of me that wants the quickness but I feel like I am being lazy! lol
