Having bangs is a great way to look trendy and enhance your face shape. But caring for them isn’t always the easiest thing in the world. Knowing some tips for having the best bangs around can really help you get them styled in the morning. To save you the time and trouble, I’ve gathered the best bang tips around and I’ll share them here with you. So don’t be afraid to have some bangs cut next time you go to the salon. You’ll know how to make them look just right.
1 Blow Dry Your Bangs Right Away
The drier you let your bangs get, the more work you’re going to have to do to whip them into shape. Hair stylists recommend blow drying them as soon as you finish washing so that you can get them styled faster. If your hair is already dry, wet your bangs and then blow dry them. You’ll love all the time you save and how easy it is to get gorgeous bangs.
2 Blow Dry the opposite Way of How You Want Your Bangs to Lay
It might sound like it won’t look right, but if you dry in the opposite direction, you get a lot more volume in your bangs so they look great instead of limp and lifeless. So if you want your bangs to lie to the left, blow dry them to the right. If you want them lying down on your forehead, blow dry them back.
3 Use a Flat Iron on Your Bangs
If you want to style your bangs the right way, you need to invest in a flat iron. A small one is better than the large version, but anything is going to be valuable when you want to get your bangs ready to go. Start at the roots and gently drag the flat iron to the ends of your bangs. This gets rid of crimps and crinkles and makes your bangs look polished and elegant, no matter where you’re going.
4 Try Twisting Your Bangs to Make Them Lie Straight
If you don’t want to heat style or you don’t have the tools handy, this tip can help. Split your bangs down the middle, twist them to the ends and secure to each side. Allow the bangs to air dry and you should have nice, straight bangs for the rest of the day.
5 Try Not to Use Too Much Product
The more product you use, the more it’s going to weigh down your hair. You don’t need a ton of hair styling products in your bangs anyway. Once you get them flattened and ready to go, give them a simple spritz of hairspray and you should be good for the rest of the day. If you need more than that, use just a small dab.
6 Wash Your Bangs Regularly
You can go a few days between washings for your head of hair, but because your bangs are shorter and sparser, they probably need to be washed more often. Suds up at least every other day so you don’t wind up with oily, greasy bangs that you end up pinning back anyway.
7 See Your Stylist if You Need Help
I trim my own bangs because then I don’t have to get an appointment or spend the cash. If you’re not quite ready for that, see your stylist. She can give you some pointers so you’re ready to do the job yourself. If you never want to, you can have her trim you up every few weeks.
