Thinner bangs can often be easier to arrange.

1. Thin and Wispy

Thinner bangs can often be easier to manipulate and arrange as you’re working with less hair. Thin, wispy and piecey bangs are always a crowd-pleaser. In case you’re in need of some body though, a volumizing styling spray, like Nexxus Unbreakable Care Root Lift Thickening Spray, can work wonders on those roots.
