Have you got one of those fringes that just seems to get the best of you? Are you always feeling like your having a bad hair day because your bangs let you down? Fear not my unwieldy friend, for I have some easy to implement methods to style up your bangs with minimal effort!
“This is a common problem that heaps of our client’s battle with,” said Gabby from Jagged Hair Salon New Farm. “The trick to achieving that perfect looking fringe comes down to simply blow drying with the correct technique.”
Straight Across Style Bangs
Get your comb and blow dryer ready and comb out your wet bangs. Start the heat at the top of the hair with your blow dryer (you may find this easier and more effective if you use the nozzle), and using a paddle brush, pull your fringe to the right for 5-7 seconds and then to the left. Keep doing this action until your fringe is completely dry. to catch any flyaway hairs, simply hold your paddle brush underneath with your blow dryer running on cool. Boom! Straight bangs sister!
Side Swept Style Bangs
As a hairdresser in New Farm, this is my number one request from ladies rocking the fringe. Super easy to do too! Wrap your fringe around a fat round brush and pull it to your desired side. With your blow dryer with nozzle attached, start at the top and follow the hair out to your brush hand. Do this for around 10 to 15 seconds smoothing your hair as you go. Do this in 3cm sections for the easiest results and pin it in place with a bobby pin as it cools to ensure it holds.
Angel Bangs or faint bangs are a little more delicate. Point your Blow dryer straight down over your fringe. Move it backwards and forwards and side to side while combing your fringe to ensure no hair sticks flat against your forehead. Just as the hair is almost dry, use your fingers to pull down the more rebellious hairs.
Other Things to Consider
A good blow dryer with nozzle is essential for achieving any of these looks. If your hair is particularly stubborn, a styling agent before you blow dry will be a huge benefit. A little hairspray will also go a long way to holding your hard work in place. If you allow the hair to dry of its’ own accord it will continue to fall back to its natural spot so make sure the hair is wet enough when you try this!
