Great Hairstyles with Bangs
Bang! Bang! – Why bangs can make you look great at any age
The current trend in hair styling is bangs. Actually bangs always seem to be in style. And doesn’t matter what your age is, anyone can wear bangs. Right now, intentionally long bangs are the rage. With the right cut, anyone can pull this look off. If you have bangs or are thinking about them, talk to your stylist. As with any style, you want to make sure that what you see on a celebrity is going to work for your face and your hair type. A good stylist will be able to give you a version of what it is you are looking for, if not the actual look. For styling on your own, read on.
Tousled and Center-Parted
For that effortless, French girl vibe, rough-dry the roots of your hair with your fingers, waving them back and forth for a less defined part. Take a two-inch round brush and roll it under the ends only, for a little volume. Follow with a texturizing spray then pinch bangs at the roots to help them fall in an unfussy way.
Eye-grazing and piecey
The easiest way to handle curly bangs is to keep them long. A good stylist will stretch your curls out in individual half-inch sections while still damp and trim just above your chin. After drying with a diffuser they will spring up to your eyelash line. You can also air dry them, by wrapping strands around a quarter-inch curling iron from root to tip, curling in alternating directions for more defined coils. Use your fingers to break them up a bit afterward.
Straight and side swept
For an evening look, spritz a volumizing spray at the roots of damp bangs and use a boar-bristle brush to direct them to the side while blowing dry. Next, wrap bangs around a medium Velcro roller, placing it to the same side. This adds shape, texture and lift. Wait ten minutes, take out the roller and brush bangs into place. Then set the shape with clips for another five minutes. Remove clips and set with nonsticky hairspray.
All of these looks can be achieved with the right cut. When it comes down to it, all great styles start with a great cut. At Legends Salon of Hillsborough, we believe the origin or all great hair starts with a great haircut. It doesn’t matter what type of hair you have, short or long, curly or straight, fine or thick, nothing is going to make your hair look its best if you don’t have a great cut. Think of your haircut as a blank canvas in which to start adding on to the look of your hair. Without that fresh, clean cut, nothing else is going to make your hair look its best.
