In preparation for a new life ahead of me in the States, I decided to get a makeover. I've had side bangs for the longest time so I went for full bangs to enhance the oval shape of my face. I had with me a photo of Anne Hathaway sporting rainbow bangs from The Devil Wears Prada. Seeing that the texture of my hair is far different from hers, the hairstylist and I agreed on full bangs instead. He quickly concurred when I confessed about not befriending the blow dryer. After staring at it long and hard at the parlor, I realized that the textured fringe brings balance to my face and creates even more of an oval feel to it. I was being a broken record in reminding the hairstylist that I wanted the length of my bangs to be below the eyebrow and just above the eyelid.
I didn't want to walk out of the parlor looking like this:
Lil' Kim, you're a hot tamale but que horror! You're not rocking that mess.
I left the parlor with a smile and new bangs to soften my features.
