HTHG has put together her 4 favorite ways to deal with her bangs as they grow out….I present to you 4 cool ways to style your growing-out bangs.
The first one is The 1940′s pin-up bang! Here is another priceless bang trick to add to your tool kit. It is great for bangs that are about to the eyebrow or longer, and perfect for dealing with growing out bangs that won’t behave. You can do this if you don’t have bangs, as well.
This great bang trick will add a 1940′s pin-up flavor to any hairstyle. You will need a couple bobby pins. It is basically just a bit of back-combing and one big pin-curl.
Here is how to do it.
Start by sectioning out the bang area. Give the whole section a light back combing. Now take all the hair in the bang sectioning close to the ends and gently roll it once so that it makes a circle, and tuck the ends underneath. Now hold it against the head and scooch it up a tiny bit towards the front hairline to add a little lift to the front. Bobby pin the pin-curl to the head, straight across it.
Now, you can roll the sides back if you want, do a ponytail facelift, or just wear it down. Experiment with using the quick pin-up bang trick with other styling possibilities.
Next up is the simple twist-back. I like begin with a deep side-part and start the twist on the heavy side and twist it down the side adding a bit of hair as I go. Once I get almost to the temple, I bring the twist slightly back so that it curves. It’s prettiest this way! Then I pin it into place. Here is the tutorial for this easy bang trick.
Next, my lovelies, is a little bobby pin look. I love the idea of using bobby pins to make a style statement. Here is a cute and different way to pin your bangs down. I like a deep side part with this look as well. Take 5 bobby pins and pin them close together to make a seamless fake no-bangs look. It reminds me of photos of my mom in the 70′s ( My 2nd favorite hair era)
And lastly is this pretty boho-ish braided bang style. I like to continue the braid all the way to the ends and pin it back to finish the look. Here is the tutorial for this look….
What do you do with your bangs when you get tired of them? I have been growing mine out for 7 years and they are still bangs!!!
