Ok, now back to our regularly scheduled programming, Ask Hannah:


Emily asked: How do I keep my bangs from getting all disgusto in the summertime? I dont know if you have summertime in Canada, but if not, maybe you've heard tale of a solution to this age-old problem?

Hannah answered: Well, we totally have summer here. And it is GROSSVILLE. Super-humid, smog-filled, no breeze, long, nasty ol' summers. And we don't have air conditioning in my house! I spend most of the time hanging out in front of the open freezer. But you are asking about hair, and so I will talk about hair. Even better, I made a video about it!
