Top Four Hair Tips For Growing Out Bangs

by Eva Chen

So, update on the bang situation. They seem to be growing at the speed of, um, molasses (or whatever the opposite of the speed of light would be). Argh! Why is it that when you want your hair to grow, it doesn’t! So, I asked hairstylist extraordinaire Jet Rhys for some tips. Here, her wisdom: “Here are my four ideas for dealing with bangs when you’re growing them out!

#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.
Little tips:
Neaten bangs with hair powder to create a bit of volume. Or, blow dry your bangs on the other side. This will re-invent your look.
Hair grows about a 1/2 inch per month so you will have your bang freedom in a month or two.
They have the most adorable feather headbands now for fall. The trick is to camo your bangs by wearing the band close to your forehead–this will draw attention to the headpiece not your grown out bangs!”
