Are you trying to grow out your bangs? Perhaps you’ve had bangs for countless years and you’re ready for new look or maybe you tried bangs and decided they aren’t for you and that’s fine, at least now you know! If you’ve started the lengthy process then you know that it can be a challenge to find the right hairstyles or looks that tame your longer bangs and keep them off your eyes but still look cute. Here are some simple styling tricks to make growing out your bangs a stylish time.
Trims and Thinning
We know that it’s difficult to take scissors to your hair when you are growing it out but healthy maintenance is the first step to your bangs growing faster and healthy ends will have your longer bangs looking their best. You could also have a stylish thin out of your bangs with thinning shearers to take off some of that bulky weight of the longer and fuller bangs. This will also make them easier to style into side-swept bangs.
Try Growing into Side-Swept Bangs
If you’ve had a wispy blunt bang or a full frontal bang or perhaps curtain bangs then the next step in growing out your bangs is to create the long side-swept look. You are going to switch from a middle part to a side part so it’s important that you find an angled part that works best for your face and your bangs. This is truly the best way to disguise that awkward not-too-long but not-too-short length. You might need some product to help train your hair to naturally fall to that side.
Bobby Pins Can Help put Bangs to One Side
Yes, if you are growing out your bangs you will have to stock up on bobby pins and learn to love them. Best of all, with all the options out there today you don’t have to stick with a basic brown or black bobby pin. If your bangs are a little shorter then you should create an angled part and secure with the pins but don’t forget to get some styling clay to help secure the style. If you have longer hair then twist and side-swept half up dos are great.
Headbands will Help but your Bangs Up
So you don’t love bobby pins or don’t find that they do the job? Pick up a few headbands to match your favorite outfits. Headbands will effortlessly keep your pesky bangs off your forehead and out of your eyes. Headbands are perfect for bangs of every length too.
Braids and Twist for your Bangs
This is your chance to perfect the crown-braid or crown-twist for when your hair is long enough for the style. Side-braids and twist are the perfect way to create a chic hairstyle that ties your bangs back.
Finally, the best way to get through growing out your bangs is to embrace them. Is there anything cuter than when you see a girl embracing her 1970’s Brigitte Bardot curtain bangs? You can curl them, flick them out or under, and get subtle layers cut into them so they frame your face in that Paris yet boho-chic style. Soon your bangs will have grown out and blended into your locks so rock them while you’ve got them.
