it wasn't something drastic like cutting your beautiful hair or dying it green and purple. Bangs are such as easy change (or so I've heard). If you don't like them grown out, you can always cut them in again. At least you know now how you look with them and what they pros and cons are.
I hate hats so. I look silly in them - with or without bangs. Keep us posted of your progress.
Progress from June 2006 - January 2011
Mid-Dark brown with natural red and silver highlights; fringe/bangs.

'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfailing beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' 1 Peter 3:3-4
