Bangs for Every Hair Type: Your Ultimate Styling Guide

It’s no secret that bangs can be a great way to enhance your look. You can choose from side-swept bobs or curtain bobs. A micro fringing or a classic look will enhance your appearance. Although we like the way bangs look on others, it is another thing to style them yourself. For those who want to maintain their fringe or those who are interested in trying them for the first, learning how to style bangs is essential. It’s not just important to know how you can style bangs, but also how quickly.

Although styling bangs might seem simple, it’s not. Just because there is less hair, doesn’t mean that they need to be treated with less care. You should consider, for example, your hair type as well as whether you wish to keep your curl pattern. Consider your skin type as well, especially if your skin is acne-prone. You don’t want the natural oils from your hair to get on your forehead. This is just one of many factors to consider.

There are many ways to ensure that your hair-styling routine is smooth and you get the bangs you want. Two professional hairstylists shared their knowledge of bangs with us. Scroll down to learn their advice on everything from the best products for the shower, to the right heat settings and how to avoid greasy bangs.

Shower Frizz – Attack the frizz

The most common problem with bangs, and frizz, is a buildup of static and flyaways. We recommend Love Beauty and Planet’s Smooth and Serene Shampoo and Conditioner.

After showering, blow dry your bangs immediately.

If you want to achieve sleek bangs then blow-dry your fringe immediately after stepping out of the shower, while your hair is still wet. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your bangs will dry. Once they begin to air-dry they have already started to take on their natural shape. You’ll get better results if you begin styling your hair as soon as possible.

Byrdie Tip:

If you do not have a hair dryer, take the wet fringe at home and straighten it. Wrap a scarf around your fringe to allow it to dry naturally without curling.

Styling Products to Enhance Curly Bangs

Scuoppo recommends applying a light curling cream to damp hair to keep the natural curl pattern. She adds that you should twist each curl with your finger to help it set the curl pattern as your hair dries.

Learn This Blowdrying Method

The best way to style bangs is with a small, round boar-bristle hairbrush. Its tightly packed bristles will grab each individual hair and allow you to apply the correct amount of tension. You’ll need a powerful hairdryer (with a concentrator nozzle) and the correct brush to master the blow-drying of bangs.

Brush your bangs side to side with your hair dryer, while facing your forehead. This will remove any cowlicks, and make sure your bangs are straight. Roll the ends inward. Scuoppo suggests using hot rollers or large velcro to remove the frizz and straighten the bangs. She suggests leaving the rollers on until the hair is cool, then spraying flexible hairspray.

Buy a Mini Flat Iron

Smooth your bangs using a Flat Iron to seal in the shape and tame frizz. Take vertical sections across your face, starting on the side you want to work. This is best done with a thin flat iron, which can reach all the way to the roots. De Zeeuw says that a thicker flat iron can be used to achieve the perfect side swing for people with curtains bangs. Make sure to direct your hair towards your face before curling the ends outwards.

Reduce static by reducing heat

Scuoppo warns that heat can cause flyaways and static, so if possible, avoid using heat-styling tools. If not, lower your heat setting. She suggests that when using a flat-iron, you should use small sections, and move quickly through the hair. The flat iron should not be heated above 380 degrees. To keep bangs in position, use a styling product that prevents frizz, such as Fekkai’s Multi-Tasker Perfection Creme (24 dollars).

Keep Bangs Clean

Make an exception to your regular hair-washing schedule. They get greasy pretty quickly so you should wash them more frequently than the rest of your head. Keep a small Dry Shampoo handy for touch-ups on the go. The Rootist’s Clearance Dry Shampoo Powder comes with a convenient brush to apply it. Scuoppo recommends applying dry shampoo to the roots of the hair and blow-drying it with a round brush at medium heat.

Give your fringe a bit of volume

It’s easy to add a little volume for a subtle “I don’t know what” look. Dry shampoo is not only great for preventing oily bangs, but it can also be used to give your fringe an extra boost. It doesn’t take much, just a few sprays before heading out will help prevent oil-induced flatness or separation in the middle of the day. Klorane’s Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk is a cult favorite.

The Key Takeaways

· As soon as you can, style your bangs. They dry faster than the rest of the hair.

· Reduce the temperature of your heat tool to avoid static and fly-aways.

· Make it a daily habit to wash bangs, even if you do not wash your hair every day.

Reduce the use of hairstyling products

Less is more when it comes to styling products and bangs. Use your usual product, but first apply it to your hair, and then only use what’s left for your bangs. You’ll have a greasy fringe before noon if you use any more.

Choose the right product for your hair type

If you have fine hair, use a styling cream like Living Proof. Use a styling product like Living Proof’s Smooth Styling Creme ($42) if you have fine hair. If you have thicker or coarser hair, use something that has a little more hold. Try Oribe’s Gel Serum (63).

Allow Your skin to absorb your skincare before releasing your bangs

You should never skip the moisturizer. However, you must be careful with what you apply to your forehead because bangs can transfer oils from your hair to your forehead. Keep your bangs away from your face until the products are fully absorbed. This can take 10 minutes. Before releasing your bangs to be on the safe side, you can blot your forehead using blotting papers. Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets (23 dollars) or Lalais Blotting Compact (48 dollars), both refillable, are recommended.

Acne-prone skin requires extra care

Scuoppo says that certain hair products may worsen acne in people with bangs and skin prone to acne. This skin type will benefit from a less is more approach to haircare to avoid ingredient transfer. Use BHAs and AHAs to help keep your pores free of build-up. This will prevent breakouts.
