Growing out your bangs can be an exciting and frustrating experience. It’s so fun to play around with new hairstyles as your bangs grow out, but it’s frustrating when they misbehave. When this occurs, it is oh-so-tempting to reach for the scissors… but back away, woman! Here are tips that will help you resist the urge to chop it all off.
Stay in line
As your bangs grow, some parts of your bangs will grow faster than others. This is where the temptation to cut begins. Unless you are comfortable with trimming your own hair (which is awesome), you can visit a stylist every few weeks who is specialized in cutting and styling curly hair. They will help you trim your bangs the right way, which will keep your mind off of cutting them shorter and shorter. For stylists in your area, visit our salons page.
Lay down flat
If you have curls or waves or just hair in general, this will always be an issue. If your bangs keep flipping up, you have a few options. You can flat iron them to keep them in their place or use a large round brush and blow dry them down straight (we like this method because you can avoid creases from flat irons). Headbands placed at the top of the crown where bangs begin can also help keep them in place.
Get out of my face
Another annoying phase of growing out your bangs is when they get to that length where they are constantly getting in your face and mouth. An easy way to keep your bangs from doing this is to use bobby pins and head bands to actually push them out of your face. Added bonus: you’ll see what you’ll look like without bangs altogether. One of our favorite ways to tame long bangs is to sweep them to the side. If you have an oval-shaped face, this style will look especially beautiful. It will also draw the eye towards your best facial features.
The greatest feature of bangs? The ability to look sleek and styled or messy and sexy, depending on your mood. Whether you want to chop them at a certain length or let them grow out, they don’t have to be as frustrating as you think!
