The 9 Emotional Stages Of Growing Out Your Bangs

April 23, 2015 2 min read

My best friend looked at me last week and said "I think you should have bangs." Completely out of the blue. Now, I can't stop thinking about it. Thing is, I used to have bangs, had them most of my life, but I grew them out 4 years ago and now I'm scared to go back. I love them and they are adorable but what if i want to grow them? I've been traumatized and I'm guessing I'm not alone. I'm also guessing you've moved through these  9 stages:

1. Excitement

It is time for a change! Hooray! You can't wait to toss your hair around without having to spend all that time blow drying your bangs so they look good. Or lie flat. Besides, bangs are so last year.

2. Optimism

Yes! It looks like your hair grew like mad last week. Maybe you'll be able to tuck it behind your ear by the time summer arrives! In the meantime, bobby pins will do.

3. Frustration

Okay, so you knew it wasn't going to be easy. And you've ready everything you can find online about how to style your hair when you're growing bangs. Obviously you have difficult and uncooperative hair! Honestly, can anyone over 7 pull of a headband?

4. Joy Over Slight Progress

Okay, this could work. Grab some more hair spray because this side swept swoopy look is working.

5. Desperation

WTF, hair? There has to be something wrong with your diet or shampoo or something. Maybe you should look into hair extensions.

6. Determination

Okay, just a few more inches. You got this. You feel proud. But only on days when you actually get out of bed early enough to style you hair in that cute braid meant to keep your hair off your face, you know that braid that had that tutorial on YouTube that you spend all that time studying. On the other days, you wear every single bobby pin you own. Or a hat. Or a scarf.

7. Weakness

You feel like you look like a shaggy dog and there is no way you can go out like that. If you just cut that one little piece...

8. Panic

OMG, why did I touch the scissors? Disaster. You call your stylist to book an emergency bang trim. You will pay more if she can squeeze you in ASAP.

9. Resignation

You walk out of the salon with adorable baby bangs. It's all good, you can grow them out in no time, right?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
