Spring Fever – the Big Bang Theory
As the earth starts to move and shift under our feet, ready to burst into new life, we feel its restlessness and begin to think about making changes in our lives.
This is the time of year when women young and old begin to ponder one of life’s great philosophical questions. “I wonder if I would look better with bangs?”
With visions of a sultry BB in black head scarf, cigarette dangling from pouty lips, dancing through our heads, we think, “God, what fabulous bangs. With those bangs, I could conquer the world!”
“Just think,” you say to yourself, “with great bangs I can pull my hair up, add an artfully-tied, decorative head scarf and sit at the terrasse of a café sipping espresso all afternoon looking so là là French, while I bask in the glow of admiring glances. And the best part is…..I’ll never have another bad hair day again….jamais de la vie!!
And so, still in the grip of our romantic fantasies, we run off to our hairdresser and utter the fateful words. “Antoine, give me bangs!”
The truth is bangs come in all different shapes, lengths and densities, and unless you are really specific about what you want, and you and Antoine are on the same page, the results could be a disaster….. a disaster you will have to live with for many months, which will feel like years, as your bad bang job grows out.
Stop by in the morning and choose from a variety of styles.
Then, while you are shopping or having lunch with a friend or significant other, your bangs will be dyed to match the color of your hair.
Come back in the afternoon and your clippable bangs will be ready for you.
Clip them on any time you feel the urge to be BB and take them off again when you grow weary of dodging the paparazzi.
I don’t know about you, but that’s a Big Bang Theory I can really wrap my head around.
