True Beauty Files: The time I tried Zooey Bangs

{Top: c/o Sheinside, Denim: Levi's, Shoes: BCBG, Tote: Mimi Boutique (similar), Necklace: c/o LYLIF, Monogram Necklace: (similar), Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta (via TJMaxx)}


I went in for a simple and quick eyebrow threading appt, and left with Zooey Deschanel inspired bangs  (you always envision it much better than it actually turns out, huh?) and a short haircut. I am still getting used to the new look. Husband thoroughly approves, so I guess I will keep it for a while;)
By the way, threading for the first time is a painful experience. I got light headed and almost fainted...no joke. And I am supposed to have a high pain tolerance?! At least the result is great! I'm telling you the menfolk have it easy. (Although there was a pretty manly dude getting his eyebrows waxed next to me?? I don't know, you tell me!)

How was your weekend friends? Will share more about what we did later this week! Happy Monday:)


The True Beauty Files
A lookbook for the modern modeste.
"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years." 
~ Audrey Hepburn

  1. I'm not a fan of threading, I have super sensitive skin and I find it really hurts and makes me break out. But I know a lot of peeps swear by it.

    But I do love these new bangs on you. Yeah, you should keep 'em.

  2. The bangs look great on you! I feel your pain about facial hair. I've never tried threading, but let's just say I have to get my face waxed once every 3 weeks to keep from looking like a man. Ugh.

  3. LOVE the bangs on you! I have been getting my eyebrows threaded for the last 3 or so years and I like it so much better than waxing. I don't have to get them done as often. And the pain gets more bearable with time!

  5. The bangs look great! I love bangs... Pretty much once a year I decide I want bangs again. And I love them, but don't do a great job of keeping up with them. So they look great for a while, and then I just end up letting them grow out. Vicious cycle.

  6. Love the bangs! I did the same thing a few months ago and wasn't sure how I felt about them at first. Now I'm madly in love! It's so easy to change up your style. Some days I have them down. Other days I swoosh them to the side. And others I pin them back completely. They're so much more versatile than I originally gave them credit for. But I digress. Lol. You look fab!

  7. You are rockin' those bangs, girl! I am pretty much always craving bangs...until I get them. haha. They are not for the lazy gal; at least, not if one's hair is naturally curly. ;) But my craving is alive and well now that I'm seeing yours. Hmmmm.

  8. These pastel colors look great on you. And I love this slightly different outfit, with a more edgy and structured alternative pieces. The bangs are going to feel like your old own very soon. If not, you can always clip them away from your face :)
    Have a nice week !!

  19. I love the bangs, I think they look great on you! This is a great look too--I love the soft pink paired with denim.

  20. Ooh, pretty bangs! I love threading...but it's so hard to find a salon that does it in Ottawa. The good news: threading is easier on your delicate eyebrow/eye skin than waxing!!! Waxing over time really wears the skin and sensitive tissue - causing wrinkles. xo!

  21. Your bangs look great Anna! I had bangs once and it was a huge change, so I know how you feel. It just takes a while to get used to it. And as for threading. Aghhhhh I get my eyebrows threaded all the time and have for years - and sometimes it still kills me!

  23. I love your bangs too. Very nicely styled.
    I once asked the Asian woman who waxes my eye brows about threading. She said that it is what the poorer classes in her country do. The ones who can't afford waxing. I thought that was interesting.

  30. Your bangs look great Anna! I've never had my eyebrows threaded but thanks for the tip on how painful it was - I don't think I'll be doing that any time soon!

  31. Anna, tne bangs look great on you! Kudos to trying a new style - I always say I am going to, but evidently I am a big- fat- chicken bc everytime I go to the salon I cry when 2 inches gets cut off! Maybe one day I'll be brave like you!
    Have a fabulous Monday!

  37. Men have gotten quite vain lately... Though I'm not crazy about the look! Haha!

  38. I think the new do is definitely you! I used to have bangs for years but don't know if I could ever go back to having them. they use to curl constantly!

    I don't think I'll ever get my eyebrows threaded! I can't believe it hurt that much!

    P.S. You look darling, as always!

  44. Such cute bangs!! I've never tried threading, but my cousin does it and her eyebrows always look great!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Your bangs turned out great! You look amazing. Loving this outfit. I'm partial to any outfit involving rolled jeans and heels. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. BAH!! Oh my gosh, and somehow I thought you couldn't get any cuter! They suit you perfectly, Anna.

    I love threading! I've only had it once in my life. It hurt so much, but I love how streamlined it is compared to waxing. I'm just a plucker, I guess.

    On a completely different note, would you ever mind if I made an illustration based on one of the photos in this post? Your outfit and hair would just be so perfect for it!
