Bangs for Winter: This is the Best Time to Try this Sometimes Tricky Style

This is the best time of year to take the leap and try bangs.

Once upon a time, when I was young and impressionable, my older sister convinced me to get bangs. She told me they would be very grown-up, easy to care for, and truly life-changing. It’s safe to say that they were indeed life-changing because, well, I hated them. At sixteen, I lacked the hand-eye coordination needed to blow-dry them well (I was a clumsy kid) and the interest involved in going for regular trims for upkeep. Here we are, almost 10 years later, and I’m considering bangs again. Bangs for winter, in particular, because this is undoubtedly the best time of year to opt for a fringe. Hear me out:

Bangs for Winter: Try This Cool Weather-Friendly Style

Winter is the season of fuss-free easy-to-maintain hairstyles that actually stay where you put them. Gone are the hot days that lead to sweaty strands plastered across your forehead and styles that fall long before the clock strikes midnight. The cooler months are the ideal time for fringe because the weather facilitates more complicated styles.

Whether you opt to pull your hair up into a low chignon, go for a more casual messy bun, or wear your hair down, bangs for winter are the foolproof way to feel instantly chic.

How to Style Bangs for Winter

If you do decide to take the leap and get bangs for winter, you’ll want to get your styling routine down pat. Blow drying bangs is actually a lot easier than my sixteen-year-old self might have let on. Simply prep damp hair with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray to ensure that you don’t fry your fringe. Then use a round brush and blow dryer to create a rounded effect as you dry your bangs.

If you want to finesse your style just a bit more, you can use a flat iron to polish off the style!
