How can I style my bangs everyday?
There are a couple of simple steps to follow to tame your bangs each day. First, if you’ve freshly washed your hair, blowdry your fringe with a dense, round brush instead of leaving it to airdry. Attach the nozzle and direct the air in a downward motion, and brush your bangs from side to side as you dry. This will keep your bangs laying flat and straight. You could also use a flat iron if you have particularly unruly bangs. Next, apply a touch of styling serum or cream to smooth and set your fringe in place. Bear in mind that your fringe may get greasy faster than the rest of your hair, so keep dry shampoo on hand for touch-ups during the day or between washes.
What type of face do bangs look best on?
Different types of bangs look best on different face shapes. Side bangs suit round faces, while feathery baby bangs are especially flattering on heart-shaped faces. Ladies with square or oblong faces should consider long, layered bangs, while a heavy, blunt fringe looks great on an oval face.
What to do if you hate your bangs?
Getting bangs is a big decision as they take a long time to grow out – usually three to four months at a minimum. If you change your mind about your fringe, there are some simple ways to disguise them. You could try braiding them back from your forehead into Dutch or French braids, or using gel to create a slicked-back look. Another option is to use a volumizing mousse and blowdry them up and back into a side-parted style. As your bangs grow out, your stylist can gradually blend them into the rest of your hair by cutting layers into the front sections.
How do you keep bangs in overnight?
The trick to waking up with presentable bangs is in preparation the night before. If you have a full or blunt fringe, apply a spritz of dry shampoo and wrap your bangs around a medium- or large-sized roller. If you have side bangs, sweep them to the side and secure with a tissue and a duckbill clip. This will hold them in place without leave a dent in your hair.
