Hairstyle Inspiration: Bangs?

I first came across my new style crush, Miroslava Duma, on Stephanie's blog One Sweet Lemon.  Miro, as she is called, is a former editor at Harper's Bazaar (Russia) and is a  fashion writer and constant subject of my favorite photographer The Sartorialist.  
 Besides being blown away by her insane fashion sense, I am totally feeling inspired to cut some bangs! 

As you may or may not know, I had a baby boy almost 4 months ago and my maternity leave will be coming to an end this week.  So, before I head back to Corporate America (in my day job I work as a Recruiter at The Creative Group), I booked a hair cut with my stylist and am contemplating showing him these pics as inspiration.
How cute do Miro's bangs look with her long hair??!!  I love how youthful (well she's 25) she looks and I want to look the same.  I totally need a change from my usual (i.e. long layers with a pic of Jen Aniston in hand showing my stylist - lol!)  
I'm thinking if they look terrible, I can at least wear them styled back until they grow out and can be cut into long layers.
So what are your thoughts?  Are bangs totally lame?  Or do I go for it and try something new?

Go for it! I just got bangs, it was terrifying, but totally worth it! The best part is that they make a messy bun look even cuter.
