Botox or Bangs


There was a time, not too long ago, when I would giggle to myself at a grown woman with bangs. You see, back in the 80s's we all had bangs, so I would always assume this woman was about my age and just hadn't changed her look in 30+ years. Now, however, I think she might be on to something...

I have reached the point in my life that my forehead shows every emotion I have ever expressed, even if I'm not expressing one at this particular moment. Yes, I have wrinkles. Oddly enough, I don't mind seeing them on other women, but I don’t like seeing them on myself. While I'm not old enough for a facelift (at least I don’t think so), I'm definitely prime for Botox. My hesitation isn't because I'm afraid of putting chemicals in my body, but the price of beauty keeps going up exponentially each year. Should I do laser, get fillers, a chemical peel, or spend $50 on bangs?

This time around I'm opting for the latter. I tend to bruise easily, so fillers are out of the question and there's no predicting how long my skin will flake after a peel or laser treatment, so they are out too. Additionally, I'm on a bit of a budget right now so an inexpensive hair style is my best option; however, I need to find a style of bangs that won't make me look like I'm trying to recapture my youth.
