10 Ways to Wear Ponytail with Bangs

Read on to get inspired and see our fave flirty ways to wear a ponytail with bangs:

1. Sleek Bangs

Use just a little bit of hair product to style your bangs.

A big reason why a lot of women try and stay away from bangs is because of the upkeep. Not all hair types air dry well when it comes to a set of sleek bangs, so we understand the concern. We recommend using hair products to keep your bangs in place and make styling that much easier. Use just a touch of Suave Max Hold Sculpting Gel to style your bangs in place! This will ensure that your strands stay where you put them – no matter your hair type.

2. Short Ponytail

Make this look work with shorter hair.

Pull your bob up into a mid-level ponytail and leave your bangs down. This is both a sweet and effective way to get your hair off your neck. We love this look for everything from the gym to the office, for how chic it looks while also keeping most of your hair away from your face.

3. Relaxed

Now is the time to take the leap and get bangs.

Take advantage of your relaxed hair and use this opportunity to incorporate bangs into your style. This soft swept-to-the-side look is chic and easy to maintain.

4. Side-Swept

This look works with side bangs too.

This style works with bangs of all kinds. Sweep your side bangs in the direction they naturally fall, and then gather the rest of your hair back into a ponytail. Consider this style if you’re looking for a laidback look that gives your hair an “I just went to the beach” feel.

5. Cropped Bangs

Wear ’em extra short.

Ask your stylist to cut your full bangs just a bit shorter and wear this style with a set of cropped bangs. Cropped bangs are an edgy and unexpected way to frame your face and get in on the bangs trend. By sweeping the rest of your hair back into a ponytail, you really get your hair away from your face while still making a statement with your strands.

6. Grown-Out

Use this look as you grow your bangs out.

If you’re in the process of growing out your bangs, this is a great way to mask that awkward stage and draw attention to the rest of your hair. Longer bangs are still bangs, aren’t they? This chin-length style is soft and easy and lends itself to a range of hairstyles.

7. Extra Volume

Tease your crown for a little bit of extra volume.

Use a teasing comb to tease the hair at the crown of your head for an extra touch of volume. Many women veer away from ponytails because they prefer to have some volume in their strands. By teasing the hair at the crown, you enable yourself to achieve some volume while still embracing the ponytail style.

8. Accessorize

Play with colors and textures by adding flowers to your style.

Add some extra detail to your look by accessorizing your ponytail. Pin a collection of fabric flowers into the front of your style to really make the look pop. We love this look for a summer wedding or even a baby shower!

9. Full Bangs

Ask your stylist for a thick set of full bangs.

It goes without saying that this style looks great with a full set of bangs. Keep your strands moisturized, healthy and high in shine by washing and conditioning them with TRESemmé Moisture Rich Shampoo and TRESemmé Moisture Rich Conditioner.

10. Side-Swept

Brush your bangs to the side.

Brush your bangs to the side for a slightly more casual and easy-going style. This is an ideal look for when you’re growing out your bangs and they hit that in-between awkward stage where you don’t know what to do with them.
