Ok, here's a pic, but it's not a not very good one. The bangs really do look better in person and even better if I hadn't taken the pic at the end of a long week. I'll try to take a better one later.

I have long layers so my hair is not quite so heavy around my face. I also use tiny claw clips. I think they're made by Goody or Scunci and are very easy to find. After putting product in my wet hair I position three of the clips right at my hair line sort of in a back (but slightly to the side) way. I also slightly lift the clips away from my roots. When my hair dries, I remove the clips and I don't have misc. tendrils falling in my face.

Love the bangs Ms G!
I was thinking I might cut my bangs back in, do them to the side. I have that hank of hair too and it's starting to drive me nuts.

I always think it will be great to grow them out but the min they get too heavy to keep out of my face I remember why I have them!

Thanks. I debated about cutting them for a long time, but even after they grew out, I still had all of that hair falling in my face even with long layers, and I didn't want to have to clip them all the time. I do want them just a little longer so they'll go over to the side more and have a little more curl, or if I want to I can wear them back.

You could also try a headband, if you like those. That's how I keep my hair off my face when it's driving me crazy.

I always call it a "face frame" ... sounds like semantics, I know, but cutting a face frame is always different than cutting bangs. It's a curl-stepping process that takes your hair from a pre-determined length at the shortest part and graduates the curl fall until it curves gracefully into your length.

From the length of your hair and how it falls (at least as far as I can determine from pictures), it looks like a good face frame would help a lot. I just have to figure out a way to teach you how to do it (and yes, you could do it yourself -- probably much more successfully than many stylists).

Okay, I need a model for an online picture teaching session

Thanks for posting the pics! I was just about to ask if you have to do anything to straighten them, but this sounds like you don't. I would have to mine. I got the cut yesterday, and she and I together decided against bangs, for now at least. I first want to see how I like the cut - haven't styled it myself yet, so the jury's still out.

Ooo, I'd love to see a demonstration or even just a good description of how to do it. I used to cut my own and all my friends' and family's hair all the time in college and for a few years afterward - still cut some of my family's. I wouldn't want to do mine all over any more, but I'd sure tackle the front where I can see what I'm doing with no hesitation. Then if I don't like it, it's no one's fault but my own.

The graduated curl stepping process you describe it above sounds like just what I've been trying to describe to every stylist for the past two years. I just have never been able to explain it well, I guess, and the end results have never been as I thought I described!

I only have to run them over a round brush and that's about it, but my hair type isn't very curly until it gets some length.

Struttswife - I would definitely LOVE to see a demonstration of this, too, before having to get mine cut again.

Your hair is absolutely gorgeous!!! The bangs look great, the back is awesome the sides beautiful!!! I don't ever want to hear you complain about having a bad hair day!!!! never, never, NEVER AGAIN!!!

That could be the case. Usually when I use them, it's on second day hair. Today's is just-washed and it's silky/smooth curls, but I only have one small clump clipped back. I'll have to pay more attention and see if it usually works on these kind of days.
Bobby pins just slide out of my hair - I try to use them but about a 1/2 hour later I feel them hanging off the hair it was clipped to and I look deranged! I use the little jaw clips and I clip back like just the front back and a bit of the sides. I use 3 of them.

If BB changes her mind, I will be an online model. I feel I am desperately in need of a hair cut. I have 3a BSL hair and it is hard to keep it out of my face. Please, please, please teach us.

StruttsWife is the best! I'd love to learn to do the framing layers, as I usually go 6 months between cuts and the frame gets too long (my current face-framing layers are now framing my collarbone).

This would be much easier if I could post pictures along with the explanation. Let me see what I can do. I've been planning to add some visual "how to's" on my new web site anyway ... this is as good a place to start than any, I guess

Yay!! You let us know when it's ready, and we'll bog down your server trying to watch it all at once!
