Growing out full bangs can be hard to deal with—they just look awkward and refuse to be tamed! Fret not, however, because we’re here to help. Here are five super easy tips to get through this phase that’s more awkward than puberty:
1. Get a trim.
Yup, it sounds counter-intuitive, but it works just like the advice of getting a regular trim when you’re growing out a pixie cut. Your bangs will be healthier, thereby absorbing nutrients better (and looking less dead), which means they’ll grow faster. Visit the salon at least every six weeks for the trim.
2. Go heavy.
On products, at least. Choose clays or muds over lighter styling products like gels, as they will weigh down your bangs and stray hairs better. To care for your hair, deep condition every week or every other week, depending on whether your hair is heavily processed or not, to keep it healthy.
3. Pick a side.
Sweep your bangs to the left or to the right to disguise the awkward length.
Bring out your cute hair clips if your bangs can be clipped on the side, or elastic hairbands when you want your face to be free of hair completely. Now is the best time to play with hair paraphernalia.
5. Style them.
If you can, try twisting your bangs after pulling them to the side or braiding them to create a more interesting 'do.
