Before you finally convince yourself to get bangs, you have to know the adjustments you need to make when you start living with them, because seriously, this hair makeover will change your look and lifestyle. Be prepared to update your routines—both hair care and skincare. Slowly ease into the fringe life by checking this list out:
You'll need trims every three weeks.
Bangs grow at a quick rate, and having the tips touch your eyelashes may be a sign that they're too long. You've learned to trim them yourself because frequent trips to the salon is just too magastos.
You may get paranoid about getting zits on your forehead.
A major reason for people not attempting to get bangs is that their foreheads are prone to getting pimples. Once you have a fringe, make a conscious effort to constantly wipe the sweat and oil off. You should also be super extra with using your toner in your skincare routine.
You have to be careful with how you use styling products.
Aside from the fact that you're avoiding pimples, you'll want make sure that you'll never use heavy hair products on your bangs. Some ingredients in hair products can also irritate your skin and cause a pimple outbreak.
You'll be very meticulous with the way you dry your bangs.
Bangs can look different every day, depending on how they were dried. On days when your fringe looks flipped out or weird, just bring out a small straightener to keep them wispy or a blow-dryer to create a voluminous shape.
You will prioritize them when you shampoo.
Again, greasy bangs never look good, so you'll make it a point to wash your hair every day. And on occasions that you'll have to skip shampooing your head entirely, learn the art of spot-washing them. Spritzing your fringe with dry shampoo may just trigger breakouts on your forehead.
You may have to spend more time in front of the mirror.
Having a fringe encourages you to experiment with hairstyles, may it be adding a headband or a bow, you're just in the mood to play with your look!
You will get a different version of that confident, fasyon vibe you've always had.
Just like any haircut, a fringe changes the way you look at yourself. Loving your reflection can definitely add a pep to your step! There are so many looks you can create with your bangs, so it's definitely a different experience every day.
