I have had bangs, in some form or another, pretty much since college. I don't even remember a time I didn't have them. I attempted to grow them out a few years ago, but right when they passed the most awkward part, I chickened out and cut them right back in.
But now, I've decided it's time to say farewell to my bangs. They're a lot of effort, you guys! And I couldn't have picked a better time. We're living in a Golden Age of hair accessories, which means I can disguise my weird grow-out situation with a combination of a trusted hairdresser (Joey Silvestera at Blackstones NYC, the GOAT) and a pile of headbands, clips and barrettes.
The latest style I'm adding to my arsenal are these crystal hair slides from Lelet NY. The little details, like the different sizes of crystals and gradient tones, make them feel special. Who will notice hair at a weird length when you have these to look at?
Lelet NY Convex Multi Crystal Pin Set, $148, available here.
