Bang Bang!

I’ve always thought bangs are cute. So I had my hair cut to have bangs on them. Then it turns out my forehead doesn’t think they’re so cute after all. My skin is too picky with my hair styles, I tell you. Somehow, it abhors any contact with my hair! One wrong move and boom: major breakouts. The breakout that developed quickly on my forehead was a pretty clear sign to me that it’s time to do some damage control. But then there’s not much I can do but to wait for the bangs to grow out. And boy, do they take time to grow out…

If you’re having trouble growing out your bangs too, here are four tips from Teen Vogue to help you (and hopefully, me):

1 Pin Em’ Back!

Brush the bangs back toward the back of your head. Then, push them forward so they pouf up a bit and bobby pin at the crown. Swipe on pomade or gel to smooth flyaways.

2 Do the twist!

Pull your bangs up, give them a twist, pin to one side and spritz with spray!

3 The split and tuck

Part damp hair down the middle, coaxing your bangs away from your face. Draw back on each side bobby pin about two inches from your forehead then just slide the rest of the hair over the telltale pins. It’s a clever little trick!

4 Sweep them up and away.

Work gel into damp hair and blow dry it straight back. Comb hair into a low ponytail, pin, mist hairspray to keep them blended.
