Bangs are so in nowadays, and they come in different types. You have the high-fashioned blunt bangs and the edgy baby bangs. If you want to inject some K-wave into your look, there’s the see-through bangs. Meanwhile, side bangs are not left behind as far as hair trends are concerned. In fact, with their versatility and low maintenance, they are bound to stay. Want side fringe? Here are ideas on how to sport long hair with side bangs.
5 Ways to rock long hair with side bangs
1. Shoulder-length hair with side bangs
Side bangs can blend seamlessly with shoulder-length hair because they are relatively long. To style your side bangs, part your hair either on the left or right. Then, comb your bangs in place. Apply hair wax for texture and definition. If you decide to grow out your side bangs, you can simply tuck them in your ear to get them out of the way.
Editor’s tip: Spritz a small amount of TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your palms, rub them together, and apply the product on your side bangs to help keep them in place.
2. Bun with side bangs
Is it sunny and hot outside? Put your hair in a bun to keep you cool and refreshed. Don’t worry. this updo goes well with side bangs, too. With your bangs swept on the side, they don’t have to contend with sweat on your forehead should you be doing a lot of leg work throughout the day. If you want your side bangs to stay put on extra busy days, just secure them with a bobby pin.
Editor’s tip: Keep your bangs free from excess oil by spritzing a small amount of TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo on your fringe.
3. Long hair with deep side part
If you have a wide forehead like that in a heart-shaped face, a deep side part can help balance it out. Side bangs become more apparent, too, when you part your hair deeply on the left or right side. To style your fringe, straighten it using a flat iron so they stay in place and behave the whole day. You can iron the rest of your hair as well for a sleek look.
Editor’s tip: Before you blow dry or iron your hair, spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair to shield it from heat. This will prevent extensive damage to your hair caused by styling tools.
4. High ponytail with side bangs
A high ponytail never goes out of style and is flexible enough to go with any hair trend. If you want a sleek and straight hairstyle, use a flat iron on your hair and fringe. If you want a bit of bounce, though, blow drying is enough. When you’re done styling, add a drop of hair serum to prevent frizz and fly aways.
5. Dyed hair with side bangs
Feeling adventurous with your long hair? Dye it. Choose from bold colors to give your hair tons of personality. If you’re not up for unconventional hues, play around with various coloring techniques. Balayage highlights make the color blend seamlessly with your hair, even if your hair starts growing. Layers, waves, and braids also become more apparent when you dye your hair—as opposed to plain black hair—so this is another reason to get a dye job along with your side bangs.
