Bangs can instantly transform your face and make any haircut look much different. That doesn’t change the fact that chopping off that much hair can be scary! If you are thinking of getting bangs, check with your stylist to guide you in finding the right style and maintaining the best match for you.
Here are some things to consider before getting bangs:
When considering bangs, consider your hair texture. Some people think that curls and bangs don’t always pair well, but this isn’t true! Talk to your stylist about blending in the bangs to the rest of your cut. Don’t cut bangs when hair is wet, especially if your hair has curl or wave in it. (This is for those of you who insist on trimming your own bangs!)
Not ready for the thick bangs? Try side-swept bangs paired with long layers. Layering hair with bangs works the best. One of the secrets to a great side-swept bang is that it blends in well with the rest of your hair. Side-swept bangs grow out beautifully.
Dry your bangs first before drying the rest of your hair. Your bangs are shorter so they dry faster. Once you get the perfect cut, you need to make sure you properly know how to blow dry your bangs. You can use either a round brush, or brush them in the opposite direction you want them to lay when blow drying. Both of these methods will help add volume to your bangs. Ask your stylist for tips!
Don’t worry, bangs won’t go out of style! They may change style, but on some people bangs complete their style. Bangs suit every face shape. They also suit every hair length. They work with pixie cuts, short hair, shoulder-length, bobs and even long hair.
If you aren’t growing out bangs but just want a change in your look, ask your stylist to cut long bangs at an angle. Blow dry them. Brush bangs forward and blow dry them as if they were blunt bangs. Brush them from side to side as you blow dry. Unlike blunt bangs, side-swept bangs don’t need to be trimmed as often and they grow out very nicely!
Bangs are the perfect choice if you want to change your look but don’t want to take off dramatic length. If you don’t like them, they will grow out. If you suffer from a fear of getting bangs, you can fix that by scheduling a consultation with your stylist and starting with side-swept bangs which grows out quickly and beautifully!
