Straight Bangs | Fringe Hairstyles

As I mentioned earlier, I decided to give my #2 the straight bangs/fringe that she has been wanting. She had side bangs before, so we figured why not!

I do not have much experience at all with bang hairstyles since I, myself, have not had bangs for 16 years. This particular week I had my best friend Jenny from ShowMeCute in town visiting, who is a master at bangs.

Straight Bangs

Jenny my daughter’s bangs for me, since I had cut them myself, and then showed me how to style them. Thank heavens she was here to help me out!!! {I apologize in advance that my daughter’s bangs do not look much different before/after because Jenny actually showed me how to do them before we filmed the tutorial.}

What we show you here is how to add some “shape and dimension” to the bangs, by straightening the lower bangs, and then using the straightener to curve the upper bangs. This, in effect, makes the bangs look longer. {Of course, then you can combine the this with many of our other hairstyles!} This is beginning a whole other category for us! Enjoy!

Items Needed: Heat protectant, straightener, brush, comb, hairspray {if desired}

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!
