5 Ways to Successfully Pull Off Long Hair Bangs

1. Wear Your Bangs Off To The Side

Long and sleek bangs look super sexy when parted off to the side, so don’t be afraid to try out this mod look if your bangs are on the longer side. To get this come-hither look, start by applying a styling wax, like the S Factor by TIGI Creamy Molding Wax,  onto your bangs, to help them stay in place. Then, begin to gently brush out your bangs with a fine-tooth comb, and pin off to the side with some classic bobby pins. Secure your style with some strong-hold hairspray, and enjoy your sultry bombshell look!

2. Curl Your Bangs

Curling long bangs also helps them look prim and polished, especially if you want them to appear a bit smaller than they already are. To give your bangs some curl and extra volume, use the TREsemme Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mousse before styling, to give your bangs a necessary pick up. Then, take a one-inch curling iron and proceed to curl your bangs. To give your bangs a curly-wave effect, take a paddle brush and gently brush your curls out. Then, take some hairspray to set your style into place.

3. Center Part

Parting your bangs in the center also gives them a sleek and sophisticated appearance. Looking awesome on longer and straighter lengths, achieving this style doesn’t take up too much of your time. To get this simple look, start by applying a dime-sized amount of the TRESemmé Tres Two Mega Firm Control Gel onto your clean bangs. Then, use a fine-tooth comb to brush both sides of your bangs off to the side, keeping the emphasis on the middle part. Finish with some hairspray for some extra hold.

4. Long and Fringed

We won’t deny that wearing your bangs long and fringed always makes for a fashion-forward style. However, If you find that your bangs are getting super oily too fast, using some dry shampoo as you style to keep any greasiness at bay. The key to using dry shampoo correctly is not overdoing it on your bangs. Too much product will weight them down, making them look limp and lifeless.

5. Experiment With Color

Playing around with some color is another way to show off your longer bangs, especially if you want a look that really turns heads. For a dramatic color look, try highlighting your bangs with bold color, or experiment with color-blocking (we’re talking thick platinum bangs!) to give your ‘do an eye-catching finish.
