Ideas about how to keep hair out of my face?

I absolutely love my curls, but I get really annoyed with them if I've been wearing my hair down at school for too long. After only a few hours of wearing my hair down, my bangs and side curls start puffing out and getting in my face getting in my face, and I can't stop messing with them. I always end up just ultimately giving in and throwing my hair in a tight bun. Ick.

So I am looking for hairstyles that keep my bangs/side curls out of my face, but still show off my curls. Does anyone have any suggestions and/or pictures? Thanks!
EXTREMELY thick, medium 3B-3C hair;
I have yet to find a hair twin ANYWHERE...website or real life

Current routine: Um, I don't feel like updating my siggie every thirty minutes. I'm experimenting right now! (loving the overnight plop!)
Get the book Strictly Curls from CurlMart. There's lots of cute hairdos there. I have the book, but I can't use it 'til my hair gets longer....

Currently using the following 2 - 3 x/week:
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day suphate-free Poo, cone-free CO and styling treatment, plus KCCC

I can't stand hair in my face (I know, kind of hard to avoid with my voluminous, curly hair). How about a headband? There are lots of cute styles out there and I always find they're a nice way to wear my hair down while keeping it somewhat controlled and out of my face.

My first 2 suggestions were going to be the Strictly Curls book and headbands (great minds think alike )

I have a couple and they are cute. The smaller ones work well for just putting back the top/front of my hair.

These flexi things are definitely on my list--and I see there's a free shipping thing going on. Thanks so much for the link!
I use bobby pins to pull back the front of my hair from around my face. Sometimes I use them to put the hair on top of my head (it looks more "perky"), and sometimes I use them to pull some of the hair back (kind of like in the website rejoicingcurlygirl pointed out).

rejoicingcurlygirl - Those clips are super cute!!

Ok guys-did some googling and found me a coupon code for either 10% off or buy 4 get 1 free. I actually got 5 (In 3 diff sizes), and the free one was the same as the most expensive one I got($12.00), not the cheapest...I love these and hope they work in my hair. So, not bad with free shipping, too.

Gotta check out the free shipping and coupon! I have been wanting to try these forever, but don't know what size to try. For those that got them, what size did you get? For ponytails and just the front? I wanna order too!!!
