When we end up getting a less than satisfying bang trim, or when we transition from the life of not having bangs to the life of bangs, and find ourselves at a loss because we absolutely despise the look – it may feel hard to move on from it. Luckily though, there are things you can do to deal and hide the bangs until they grow out. Lionesse would like to help you cope – or maybe even learn to love – those bangs that you so despise.
Attempt to Embrace the Bangs
When you end up getting a bad bang cut, there’s nothing worse than hating the way they look. After all, they are sometimes difficult to hide depending on the type of bangs you’ve gone for, and they’re always right there, front and center. Perhaps you could attempt to like them in some way. Try styling them different ways – Brush them to the side, add some volume and blow them out, or leave them where they sit, as is. The best thing you can do is try to find a reason to like them. If not, there are other options!
Use Pins to Hide
If you absolutely despise your bangs, and there’s just not loving anything about them, why not consider using bobby pins or barettes to hide the bands away from the face, rendering them part of the remainder of your hair, where none will be the wiser? If done right, you can nearly hide them from anyone in any hair style. As a tip, use the curved bobby pins that conform to your head shape when pinning back your bangs. Rather than pinning them back, though, attempt to pin to the side for a more natural look.
Use Head Wraps or Head Bands
If you don’t have any bobby pins on hand – and lets face it, those things have a way of getting up and walking away – don’t worry. Instead, try using a head wrap or head band. A bandana rolled into the shape of a headband can also be tied around the head as well, giving you the same effect. This will help keep the bangs away from the face and away from view.
Incorporate the Bangs into a Style
If you have longer hair and would like to create a style like a French braid, why not try incorporating your bangs – if the length is somehow feasible – into the braid? Or, you could braid the bangs into a small braid and pin them on the side of the head. For a style like this – you will need what we discuss in our next point.
When hiding or styling your bangs, you’re going to need a dose of hairspray to keep it all together and to place the hair where you want it. This will also ensure your style holds for the duration of the day, and no flyaway bangs creep out of the style if you’ve got them pinned back.
