My New 'Do

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.

I attribute my look to Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada.
Sheer happy and elegant.


  1. :D love it. i've always wanted to do bangs but could never figure out what would look good on me. way to change things up. wish i had the guts to do the same.

  2. so daring! I definitely need to do something different with my hair but bangs would make me look even younger (; it looks so chic on you!

  3. @TheFeminissima Thank you! You should do so! With the length of my bangs, I can always sweep them to the side if I wake up one day and hate the bangs. :))
    @Jenroxursox84 Please don't get bangs like mine because that'll make you look even younger than I originally though. :)) Side swept bangs are sexy too or add layers to your hair. :) Thank you!

  4. It's so pretty and lovely! LOVE it!

  5. Yeah it definitely looks pretty good, I like the way you did the bangs. It definitely does look more Anne Hathaway-ie so you're safe.

  6. Nice choice! You look very chic :).

  7. @Mike Thank you! Better to be anything-ish than Lil' Kim-ish. :))
    @Dana Thanks Dana. :)
    @Russ Thank you! :)
