After taking my Chinese written exam, I went to get my haircut by my Chinese teacher’s hairstylist. Every time I need to get my biannual haircut (the laziness of having long hair), I think about doing something drastic but usually never do anything more than a trim or just a few extra inches off.
For years, I’ve also wanted bangs but would always be persuaded not to. Given that I was left alone this time and felt more adventurous than usual, I decided to go for what the hairstylist recommended. While I was getting my hair washed, he looked up some examples of Asian girls with bangs on his iPad.
And the rest is history.
