All my life, I've been in pursuit of the perfect thick, sideswept bangs.

I love bangs because they frame your face and make it look slimmer, they make you look younger, and they make you look like you have a hairstyle even when you have your hair up in a simple bun. But I always regret cutting my bangs because they never turn out the way I want them to, and then it takes forever to grow out.

But once they've completely grown out and I see perfect bangs like those of fashion blogger KeikoLynn below, I cut them again only to repeat the vicious cycle!
