i need your opinions.

so i'm going to hold a poll...


mostly because i can't make decisions for myself.  muahaha!


so about a month ago, i decided i was going to grow out my bangs so i had my hair-lady, katie, cut them so they would sweep to side.  see photo:





but now i'm debating again if i like them more when i have straight down blunt bangs.  see photo:

i've actually been back and forth with this for about a year...



anyway, lincoln said i need to keep hairstyles for at least five months before i change them, but what does he know, right?  ;)
 
 
 
so what do you think?
side swept bangs

or
 
straight down blunt bangs




mostly i'm thinking neither of them look great on me, but it's how my hair is.

mediocre.


so help me pick the lesser of the two evils, will ya?

I really like your bangs blunt! If my forehead wasn't the biggest third of my face and I could have my bangs be heavy blunt like that without making my face look so squatty, I would keep them that way for life!! ;)

Mandy said...

I like the side swipe.

Steph Romney said...

Either way is gorgeous. But I'm kinda loving those side swept bangs...

side!!

Kara Lynn said...

I vote with your hubby and say you change them back and forth every five months because they both look so good on you!! They both look equally fabulous, but I kind of like the blunt bangs just a little more because it's less typical. Everyone has side swiped bangs. Mostly because most of the population looks odd with blunt. you are lucky!!

adam.and.e said...

blunt all the way!!! i'm so jealous of your bangs. every time i go to my {new} stylist i tell her i want the blunt look and she makes them too thin... you have the perfect amount of chunky ratio {and by chunky i mean THICK. there is not an ounce of chunky on you!} and I LOVE IT!

Ana* said...

I like both, but I would say side swept :)

Hannah said...

You are doing HAIRSPRAY!
BLUNT bang all the way.
I am definitely more of a side swept girl myself but you look so good with both and for the show you are in you NEED blunt bangs! :D

Diana Smith said...

I like the blunt! You looks really cute

Anna said...

Side swept! You look great either way, but the side swept makes you look a little older and more sophisticated.

Michelle Kay Palmer said...

I found your blog through a mutual friend... and I LOVE it! you look great with both... honest! Straight bangs give you a trendy look and side give you a classic look. So whatever you are going for. Also, My cute little brother is serving in your in laws mission and he loves them so much!

Brissa said...

Side sweep!

Abigail Leigh said...

Side swept most definitely, but both look great.

P.S Your hair is not mediocre. Its beautimous.

Sist and Sist said...

You look adorable in either! I like them both pretty much equally but if I had to choose, I think side swipe.

7upkels said...

Gah. Beauty both ways. I envy your hair and flawless face! You happen to be gorgeous girlfriend! But truthfully, I like the blunt bangs -- only because I tried it out on myself last summer and it was a horrible look for me. So those who can pull it off, should pull it off!

Juarez said...

Jordans aunt who cuts my hair cuts them so they can go either way. My hair grows soo fast that they only last as blunt for like 3 weeks then they are too long and I have to wear them side swept. So... get them cut/trimmed so they can do both.

TheCoys said...

side! They're so pretty.

Travis & Susie & Hunter said...

My vote is on the side swept. Cute pics Jalene!

Michelle said...

I go back and forth all the time too!! And I'm risky because I'll decide and cut my bangs- and it'll look horrible and then I just pin them back, haha!

I like both, personally with my hair, blunt bangs are easier and more predictable with "good" hair days.

But maybe you don't have a calic at the front of your head that makes your bangs go all weird.

david-and-emily said...

I like the blunt bangs! Only so many people can pull that off, and YOU are one of them! Put it to good use!

Shanna and Chris Purdie said...

Jalene, you are one of the ONLY people I know that can pull off the straight across bangs like your second picture. Keep them straight across! :)

Amanda said...

Maybe part your hair in the middle and do one side of your bangs straight and one side of your bangs side sweep.

HA.

Just a suggestion.

jasmine said...

side swept!

the blunt are cute too, but the side swept are more elegant & grown-up looking. :)

Prix ° said...

side swipe looks great.

Lauren Kay said...

I like switching it up and grew my bangs out this past year. Do the side swipe. Its a subtle change, Lincoln can't argue because it'll be so gradual...

misty star said...

your hair is not mediocre!! it's super cute... and i personally don't think many girls can pull off blunt bangs (i was cursed with a tiny forehead and am one of them) so i vote blunt bangs!

whimsy said...

ugh! i know how annoying this is! im sorry you have to deal with it! but i like them straight down blunt:) however they look gorgeous both ways because you are lovely! and absolutely gorgeous! so whatever you choose will be fabulous! what does linc like? i ended up just doing what jacob likes more. but i like bangs in front cuz it is more unique and not everyone can pull it off...but you def can.

Marcia said...

Side!

communikate. said...

story of my life right now too!

i've had blunt bangs for four years now, so i'm making babysteps toward growing them out. side swept is the best option for me.

as for you..
you're gorgeous and rock the blunt or side swept.

i say stick with the blunt! :)

BethanySusan said...

i like your hair, it's not mediocre. and i vote blunt bangs.

CAPow! said...

I like your straight bangs, they look really cute on you!

kylee said...

i'm a fan of the side swept bangs.

Amanda said...

I don't know--both ways are beautiful. I vote for sideswept though.

Miss MyKelle J said...

OK so before i read all of your post I saw the picture with the side sweep bangs and thought, uhh I can't grow my bangs out. Yours are SO cute! So much in fact that I have been inspired to do mine like that again. Coming from someone who changes their hair once a month, side sweep is super cute on you-- and why keep your hair the same for 5 months when there are so many fun things to do with it!

Grandma Kathleen said...

I like the side swept best. You are beautiful either way.

Gretchen said...

Blunt. If you can pull it off, which you totally can, go for it!!!
