I have had my bangs for a little over a year now, and I love them only half the time. This morning I came across this article with different suggestions for styling bangs and I think perhaps trying some of these things will give a new umph! to my plain ol' bangs!
As of right now I do not use any product in them and perhaps that is where I am going wrong, so off to the beauty shop (as my grandmother, Nonnie, would call it) to pick up some supplies. I will try and remember to keep you updated because I am sure you are dying to hear how my hair experimenting goes :)
The Swoop— Create a swoop effect by loosely pinning your bangs to the side. Use a dry shampoo and a texturizing pomade to keep hair manageable.
Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo and Malin + Goetz Hair Pomade.
The Sexy '70s—Add a hippy, '70s feel to loose, flowing hair by parting your bangs down the middle and flat-ironing them in place.
Rsession Tools Pin Point Straightening Iron and Goody brushes.
The Elvis—Get Elvis-esque by applying a strong hold gel. Next, tease back your bangs and secure them with a few bobby pins. Pull hair back into a ponytail and spray the finished look.
Davines Defining Glam Power Spray and Nexxus Exxtra Gel.
The Pin-Straight—Straight, sleek bangs give an edge to a chin length bob or long locks alike. For best results, start with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner and finish with a smoothing cream.
