STYLE / 47


i am not really sure what made me cut bangs. i came back from europe, saw this picture and that day I made the chop. i have had the same hairstyle for 10 years it feels like. booooooring. i just needed a change. do you usually cut your hair impulsively as well?

they have actually been surprisingly easy to style too (i was so worried about this, considering i usually just roll out of bed and go)…a couple minutes hangin with the blow dryer and that’s it. it sure is nice to change your look up and you’d be surprised how differently clothes feel when you have a new hairstyle!


i love this new vintage blazer i found! i like to pair it with a patterned shirt underneath and jeans. i am not sure if you noticed, but i rarely wear blue denim jeans because they always stretch out and irritate me. but these madewell ones are a nice fit.

    I LOVE the bangs! I am definitely an impulsive hair girl, going to brunette to blonde without warning is my favorite. I’m also enjoying the “Get that look!” Fun addition, thanks Bri!

    Lottie says:

    I am loving your jacket!

    And your bangs make me want to cut in some of my own bangs–I just need to remember though that bangs do not suit me which makes me even more jealous of yours.

    Abby says:

    I love the bangs!! I am just like you, I had long hair for what seemed like an eternity, and I needed a change. I wanted to keep the length, so one day I just woke up and got bangs. They look great on you! I also really like the “get that look”!

    Hi Bri,
    i love your new look! even with the bangs you’re still rockin that carefree, laid-back style that i love of yours. the color, pattern combo of the jacket, blouse is spot on…oh & JEANS!! i knew something looked different (other than the bangs)…very nice! What more can i say? Bri you are for sure one of my graphic design inspirations & i hope to one day have a successful career in design, much like yourself. keep up the amazing work!

    Patti says:

    love the get the look addition Bri! & those bangs they look amazing! I know when I got bangs it was such a major change in my look, it made me want to hide for a few days : ) hehe. green sling backs are adorable!

    Love the “Get the Looks” concept, very cool.

    Rachael B says:

    Definitely a big fan of these “Get The Looks.” Even if I can’t afford it or want a different shade, I can get the name and find a similar version.

    {plum} says:

    I love you in bangs! What an instant, easy update.

    Nearing 40 I’m forever in search of easy ways to cling to girly. Bangs add wit and whimsy and just the right dash of girliness.

    cheers to you and your bangs.

    best – d.

    I love your bangs! I can’t decide if I want some or not, but it’s been on my mind a lot lately (I clearly only think about important things). How did you decide to take the leap?

    Meredith says:

    Love the hair AND the ring you’re wearing in the shoot. Could you tell me where you got that one from? I would love to get it, too!

    I love the look of bangs… and they look bangin’ on you! πŸ˜‰

    I quite enjoy the “get that look” section. It’s always fun to see where others shop and find their adorable items.

    Your lipstick color is something to live for!

    nicola lynde says:

    I have been super tempted to cut bangs lately too. I also have super long semi wavy hair, and have for what seems like a lifetime. Also all of this started with a ‘pin’ too. Perhaps I should take the plunge. Yours look lovely.

    Pink Ronnie says:

    I love bangs too, and you look so chic in them.

    Katie says:

    LOVE get the looks! More please πŸ˜€

    kelsie rae says:

    i love it! and love your new hair!

    Brittany says:

    I’m totally impulsive when it comes to my hair. I make up my mind and then it bugs me until I can get to my hair girl. The only problem is that my hair girl is in Vegas and I live in LA, so most of the time I have to wait a week or 2 until I can get back to my lovely home town to get it done, drives me nuts! I love mixing things up with my hair, especially putting in fun colors.

    Burkha says:

    Oh Bri… You look so lovely in bangs! This is definitely your look. ItΒ΄s like innocent with a pinch of naughty.
    I also find the new section very interesting. itΒ΄s thumbs up for everything in this post! πŸ˜‰
    Besos!

    I have been REALLY thinking about cutting bangs as well. I almost cut them myself the other day. Then my husband said NO! I guess I need to make an appointment.

    You look great!!!

    Becky! says:

    Girl, you make me want to get bangs. I bet that’s what half these comments say. But seriously.

    I think they look very cute! My hair is similar to yours and I’ve always wanted to try bangs…had the same hairstyle my whole life. I think I may just do it one day soon!

    Keren says:

    The bangs are perfect – part sophistication, part scraggly rocker chic. They suit you well and match your killer style. I cut bangs on a whim about once a year, like you, on impulse. Maybe tomorrow is MY day?

    Queen Mother says:

    I.LOVE.THE.BANGS! : ) love, madre

    Looks great! I cut, dye and style my hair impulsively all the time. Sometimes backfires but there ya go!

    Cute! Love the polka dot top with your satin vintage jacket.

    Dana says:

    Hi Bri,

    your site is soooo beautiful!
    i have one little question. how do you do the typography on your photos? is it a special font or do you write it with you digital pen?

    its a great look. the website and your look. :o)

    vicki says:

    Love the bangs! A full moon usually brings on the impulse to get my hair cut.
