Update Your Hairstyle with Bangs by Inge I

If you want an easy, low-maintenance way to update your style, get inspired from the latest celeb trend and old favorite: get bangs! The great news is that bangs are not only the perfect option to get stylish but they're versatile to practice new looks framing beautifully the face. It's also guaranteed to knock years of you!

Blunt Bangs
The most on-trend of all the looks are the heavy, blunt bangs instantly updating a simple medium long hairdo. This type of bangs can suit a wide range of face shapes. The secret is in altering the width and depth to suit the individuals' bone structure and hair type.
For the best results ask your stylist for wide, blunt bangs that fall on your brow line when it's dry. How to style them yourself

Section back the sides, take the first inch of the bang then clip the rest back. Blow-dry the inch section straight down and then work backwards until you run out of bangs. Finally, use flat-iron over the ends in a downward motion and finish with hairspray or light shine spray.
Tip! Dry your bangs while they're absolutely wet and always use your fingers to avoid any wayward growth patterns spoiling the shape.

Wispy Bangs Fine hair types can get away with long wispy, feathery bangs. This type of bangs suit women with oval face shapes or those with larger foreheads who want to soften their features and emphasize their eyes.

Ask your stylist for eye-skimming softly layered bangs, but avoid any mention of blunt, heavy bangs.

How to style them yourselfApply smoothing serum to the bangs area and volumising spray through the root area and longer lengths. Blast dry with hairdryer using your fingers to create volume in the root area. Finally use either a paddle or a large round bristle brush to tame the longer lengths.

Tip! Remember not to over work bangs. Keep it as natural as possible and hold them in place with a quick mist of your favorite hair spray.

Side Sweeping Bangs
This bang would suit women with square shape face or with at least strong jaw lines. It's not really for the shy and retiring! For the best results ask your stylist for soft, textured, sweeping bangs. Make sure you emphasize that you want dramatic, heavy bangs, you don't want them whispy and thin.

How to style them yourselfThis is a great "blow and go" style. Just pull the bangs forward while blow drying, then place over to one side and add a quick mist of strong hold hair spray and you're good to go! Tip! To get a more casual look, try pulling all your hair back off your face but leave bangs down to soften the style
