Bangs are an easy way to switch up your look without losing your length. Whether you’re considering making the chop or are just looking for a new way to style your fringe, we’ve put together 6 ways to style your bangs with tips from our Master Stylist, Eric Hauck.
1. Blunt Bangs
Jane Birkin’s iconic fringe is the ultimate French girl chic. To style your own hair like Birkin, simply blow dry your bangs straight down with a flat brush.
2. Side-Swept Bangs
Side-swept bangs work on any hair type and are a great way to take attention away from a high forehead and fine lines. To style at home, wrap hair from side to side with the blow-dryer and then smooth to one side with a round brush.
3. Center Part Bangs
A gentle middle part with a little peek of forehead gives your bangs an effortlessly messy look. Smooth hair forward with a round brush and part in the center. Blow dry your roots if necessary to encourage the center part.
Curly haired girls don’t necessarily need to flat-iron their bangs every morning. If you want to embrace the curl like Taylor Swift did below, curl hair forward with a 1 in curling iron and part to the side. Finish with Living Proof’s Flex Hairspray for touchable hold.
5. Rope Braid Headband
This style is perfect for anyone who wants to keep their bangs off of their face for a day. To recreate, style a two-strand braid in the direction that you want the hair to go. To thicken and keep the hair together while you’re twisting, put a little bit of Living Proof’s Amp Instant Texture Volumizer on your hands before you style it.
6. Brigitte Bardot
Brigitte Bardot is known for her iconic blonde hair and long fringe. The fringe is not straight across, but slightly shorter in the middle and longer on the sides. To create this style at home, smooth the hair forward with your hands and style the longer pieces off to the side.
