My Side Part, My Self

For the past several months I’ve been more dissatisfied with the way I look than usual. Sorry to say, but I’ve never been particularly good at practicing radical self-love and acceptance, preferring instead to vacillate between mild self-criticism to severe self-loathing.

Kim Kardashian Gets Banged

Kim Kardashian must have seen yesterday’s “What Are We Wearing Today” video, because she ran out and got her bangs cut just like mine and Rose Byrne’s. Despite the obvious copycatting, I think her hair looks so fresh and youthful — but I suppose whether she keeps the fringe all depends on what Kanye thinks,…

Jessica Biel Looks Worlds Better Following A Fresh Bangs Snip

Finally, a major positive improvement on the fringe front! Jessica Biel trimmed up her sheepdog bangs into something shorter and choppier, and they look infinitely better. Was this mod, ’60s-ish vibe what she was going for all along? It’s very Jane Birkin and, as with all things Birkin-esque, I strongly approve … and she looks pretty…

How To Cut And Style Bangs For Naturally Curly Hair

For years, I wanted bangs. I longed for them. I coveted them. I desired them. But the answer from my hairstylist was always the same: NO. So in 2008, I cut them myself. Years later, I have a love-hate relationship with them. I keep cutting ‘em, growing ‘em in, and cutting them again. But I…
