Blunt bangs are very easy to restyle, while the wispy bangs are easier to maintain. Go ahead and make your choice.
How to Style Blunt Bangs
There are many different ways to style blunt bangs. Let’s take a look at some of them. The most popular way to style such bangs is to keep them straight. This will take some blow dryer work.
Pull the bangs straight down with a brush and blow-dry them to create a blunt look. You can also side sweep your blunt bangs during blow drying. This will produce an attractive style, which won’t require much brushing during the day.
If you want to outline your blunt bangs, go for braids. Make two braids on the side of the bangs, while leaving the fringe standing out. The braids should be pinned to the back of the head or incorporated into the rest of the locks. You can even braid your whole hair, just leave the bangs out.
How to Style Wispy Bangs
The secret to making wispy bangs is quite easy. If you are bold enough to cut your own bangs, take some time to read the instructions. At first, you have to push your bangs apart into sections and pin them up to the top of your head.
Leave one strand hanging right in the middle of your forehead. Cut it as short as you like. Then free up another strand and cut it to maintain the size of the first one. Once you are done with all of the strands, put your scissors into a vertical position and cut up into the hair. The higher up you go with the upward cutting, the wispier your bangs will be. Make sure not to overdo it or you will end up with sloppy and sparse fringe.
