Maintaining Your Bangs
Here are a few pointers to keep your bangs looking their finest:
Long bangs: Blow them dry with a big round boar-bristle brush. On damp hair, brush hair from side to side to smooth out any cowlicks. Make sure to get right at the roots to control any wave. When dry, run a flatiron over them if you want a straighter look. Then use hairspray if hair is fine and limp or serum if hair is dry and coarse.
Short bangs: Use your fingers to push hair into shape and air-dry or blow-dry in downward direction so they don’t stick straight up. Use wax for finish and texture definition.
Fringe: Use a flat brush and dry with a side-to-side motion. Piece out the strands with a good pomade.
Side Swept: Blow forward at first with a round brush lifting at the hairline to give volume so bangs aren’t stuck to the forehead. A big curling iron can also give a nice bend to the side. Finish with hairspray for hold.
When it comes to maintenance, if you have cowlicks, straight heavy bangs may not be for you. Instead, angled or side swept bangs work best. Another thing to keep in mind, curly hair can be a disaster to have successful smooth bangs. However, a long curly bang can be super sexy!
