Tips for busting flattened summer bangs
It’s getting warm and there’s nothing less appealing (or less comfortable) than a hot sweaty forehead full of swampy, frizzled bangs — am I right? Of course I am. So let’s review a few quick and dirty DIY’s to keep your bangs cooperating, even on the hottest summer days.
A good word to let roll off your tongue is: accessories. You know, those versatile little hair do-dads that help sweep your fringe off your forehead in fabulous fashion. A colored barrette or hair pin is a great way to keep your bangs outta-ya-face, but this season there are other of-the-moment options. A pretty printed headband or even the ultra-trendy turban is a great way to pull back bangs without sacrificing style.
Styling your hair with an extreme side part is another bang-up (*sorry) way to get your bangs off of your forehead. Simply blow dry an extreme side part into place then use a curling iron to blend the short bang pieces into the longer side part pieces. You can also style your bangs off of your face by braiding them or rolling them into longer pieces of hair — great ideas for camouflaging for your fringe.
For the ultra-urban wet look, blend your bangs into a slicked back hairstyle by running a heavy hold gel into your hair with your fingers, or for longer side bangs, sculpt them back with a good pomade.
Why spend another summer of sweaty, flattened, or frizzy bangs? Try these simple tricks and keep your fringe fashionable and off of your forehead.
