Long side bangs look fantastic, but are they worth the hassle? Bangs are a part of a hairstyle, which always requires plenty of attention. If you are lucky enough to have straight locks, you may have it easy. Brush and add the smallest touch of hair gel and go. However, if your hair is even slightly wavy, your bangs might look like an explosion in a spaghetti bowl. That’s why choosing the right bang styles and sizes is imperative. Side bangs are a great idea since they allow you to spend a minimum amount of time on styling while enjoying a wonderful result.
How to Style Side Swept Bangs
- A styling brush
- A hair dryer
- A thermal hairspray
- Finishing spray
Note that you’ll be separating your hair into vertical strands. Thick hair will be divided into more sections while thinner hair will be divided into larger sections.
- Visually divide your hair into vertical sections and grab the first strand
- Spray the strand with a thermal spray. Keep the spraying bottle at least 5″ away from the hair in order to provide good spray distribution.
- Take a styling brush and wrap the end of the first strand around it.
- Turn on the blow dryer and direct the heat to the styling brush.
- While the dryer is blowing the hot air, roll the hair with the brush-up and down.
- Repeat the same with all the sections until your bangs styling is done.
- Use your fingers to softly sweep the bangs in the direction you want.
- Use a finishing hair spray so the bangs stay in place.
