my life with crooked bangs
December 22, 2010 § 3 Comments
For most of my childhood, I had crooked bang syndrome. It’s because my mummy used to cut my bangs with paper shears. The ghastly uneven bangs weren’t done intentionally, that’s just what they did back then. We all had crooked bangs in the 1960s. To complete the look, the bangs were chopped to reside at least 2 inches above your eyebrows and were sculpted to extend far into your hairline on each side of your face.
The cutting technique was simple— mom would just rest the scissors on my forehead, catch as much hair in the middle of the scissors blades and chew across, just as you would through a sheet of paper, crunch, crunch, crunch and TA DA — ultra-short CROOKED BANGS.
