Winging It With A Ponytail & Chinese Bangs

I was attempting to transition to natural, but quit after 6 months. Now I'm rocking this Ponytail & Chinese Bangs. Oh, and winged eyeliner.

Ponytail & Chinese Bangs

So in my last post about my hair, I mentioned that I was attempting to transition out of my relaxer and go natural. When I took down my last install, that idea went straight out of the window. My hair is extremely thick and I could not deal with the two textures. It was literally a pain to comb through it. So I broke down and gave myself a relaxer. I hadn’t relaxed in 6 months besides my bangs. You really have to be prepared to take the transitioning journey and I wasn’t. What I can commit to though is only relaxing 3-4 times a year. Stretching my relaxers is my attempt at taking baby steps. So here’s my new do, with winged liner to compliment the “Chinese Bangs”.

You can never go wrong with a ponytail and Chinese bangs.

  1. hi i just found your site/blog and i love it i saved it to my phone and computer. how did you cut your bangs. I've cut bangs before and was considering trying the side swept (Aaliyah) bangs this time but just wondering because yours look perfect…

    1. Firstly, thank you so much for the support! 🙂

      When I cut my bangs, I make sure the area of hair does not reach too far back to the crown of my head. I comb the area straight to the front and slightly to the sides. Using a barber scissor, I cut from right to left, slightly longer than what I want to leave room for mistakes. I then gradually cut a little more and even it out until I get my desired length. Hope that helps. For Aaliyah bang you would need to cut at an angle and slightly layer.
