I did it! Got the bangs cut yesterday! I was quite nervous when go-time came, but I overcame my fear and let the hair pro work her magic. Incidentally, I had to go to a new hairdresser because my tried-and-true gal moved on. So I went with another stylist that the salon told me had a "similar style" and I was blown away! She did just as amazing a job and I will definitely be going back to her.
