Having curly hair can be a challenge when it comes to styling it which is especially so if you want to use bangs in your looks since curly bangs can be tough to tame.
If you are someone who is searching for simple ways to style your curly bangs, here are 5 great suggestions that can make the process easier while also providing amazing style!
One of the easiest and most appealing ways to wear your curly bangs is to part them in the middle. Do this when the bangs are wet, separating them into one-inch sections and styling them with light hair leave in conditioner. Use a texturizing spray to help you keep the bangs from looking limp.
A twist on this look can easily be done by pinning the curls back, giving you a softer shape against your face. You can also really comb out the look, for a more eye-catching take on the middle part bangs.
This styling option is best suited for people who have long hair because you need enough of it to be able to braid. You can get this look by making a few two-strand twists in the center of your head and then using a strong pomade to ensure there are no stray hairs sticking out. Once the braids are done, swoop them to one side, pin them in place, and enjoy a unique natural hairstyle.
You can use three strands, as well, for a more classic braided look, and some people have gone as far as doing French braids on their bangs. This, of course, will depend on the length of your hair is and the look you are trying to achieve.
This can be a very fun look, but it does take some practice to ensure that it is done correctly. Your hair needs to be freshly washed for this look. Make a soft ponytail and pin it to the top of your head, allowing the ends to fall around your face.
If you do not have tight curls, which are ideal for this style, you can use a curling iron to achieve this look, but be sure to condition your hair substantially in order to have fully formed and healthy curls. The last thing you want is to dry your hair out, because this will damage the follicles and make it very difficult to maintain the look you want. Once you have finished styling the curls, add a bit of hairspray to maintain the shape and you are done.
This is a look that is easy to do and perfect for using every day. Allow for a little space between the two sections of bangs, and use an anti-frizz product to keep the look from getting too poofy. Run a comb through it to style as you like and apply a tiny bit of hairspray to protect the bangs. Something to keep in mind is that heat can make your hair very frizzy, so you want to let it dry naturally. If you do decide to use a hairdryer for convenience, be sure to use a lot of leave-in conditioner and heat-protection products.
Why not let your bangs be as eye-catching as the rest of your hair? The trick here is to use the right volumizing shampoo and conditioner so that the hair has height and is not weighed down by too many chemicals. There are some things you should avoid as well like using heat to dry the hair since this can increase frizz and can even damage the curls. Allow the hair to air dry, but be sure to add a volumizing product at this stage too, to get the lift you want throughout your entire hair, including your bangs.
These five looks allow you to have a great set of curly bangs without fear. Most women with curly hair know that styling can take time and lots of different products, but the results can be excellent if you know what to turn to. Whether you want a classic look like a middle part set of bangs or something more modern like the pineapple bangs, there is no reason you should be afraid to try bangs, even with the curliest of hairs.
