Yes, I have bangs again. This time, I had them professionally cut and styled. My arsenol of hair products includes two flat irons and a lot of hairspray. Fortunately, since my hair is coarse and dry, it doesn't have to be shampooed often, so I can wash and flat iron my bangs and the rest of my hair, if I so choose. I needed a change of style. Plus, my bangs are long enough that I can style with my longer hair back if I choose to keep the tresses curly.
