Giving yourself a horrible, uneven haircut is practically a rite of passage for any female. I don't know a single woman, at some point in her life, didn't brazenly attempt to give herself bangs only to find out their naive confidence was completely unfounded and that hair takes a surprisingly long time to grow out when you're desperate. Whether you tried to give yourself some funky fringe in your "this is the new me" phase post-college or it was with safety scissors in elementary school, there are still some things to consider before getting bangs even though now you're presumably wiser than your younger self was.
Regardless of whether it's you or a professional hair stylist who will be giving you a new 'do, it's good to remember that any kind of hair cut is both a commitment and an investment. If things goes south, you better hope you own plenty of hats or you'll need to get really creative with braiding and accessories.
There are some game-changing factors that you may not have even thought about during your process of deciding if you should switch your hairstyle up or not. So to avoid making a cut you can't take back, check out these top things to consider before getting bangs.
