What can I say, I love a good dare. Especially when that dare happens to be exactly what I want anyway: an edgy new fringe by top hairstylist Justin German, just in time for fall. So where do I sign up? Over Twitter, apparently, in response to a call for brave souls willing to sacrifice a few locks in the name of a great hair story in FLARE Magazine. Or something to that effect.
So after being selected by FLARE‘s Beauty & Health Editor Wing Sze Tang to be one of 7 lucky ladies to take part in her ‘Real Girls Get Bangs’ challenge, I was off to Shagg to do the deed. A mere 24 hours later, my transformation from ‘hair neophyte’ to ‘hair neophyte with fierce bangs and bright red lips’ was complete, and expertly documented by photographer Norman Wong I might add.
Here’s a play by play of all that happened from the ‘Before’ to the ‘After’, and everything in between:
Step 1: Chop hair.
Step 2: Apply face paint.
Step 3: Get snapped.
Step 4: Show the crew some love.
