HOW TO: The Perfect Side Swept Bang

THE PERFECT SIDE BANG

 




There are a few tricks when it comes to making your bangs sweep perfectly to one side, is what I say to all my clients when they tell me

 "I can never style my bangs like you can".

Can you all relate?!?!  You are standing there in front of the mirror arguing with yourself, naturally,.. "she did it like this, or maybe it was like this"...feeling frustrated and on the verge of ripping your hair out. ..you give up and continue styling it the way you always have done...sigh

 I am going to break it down for you all today...
talking...
bangs..
the side swept ones.



If you are trying to re create this look with damp hair...you can use a round brush and blow dryer instead of a flat iron....or you can power dry and use a flat iron as well....what ever you fancy.

FIRST THINGS FIRST
Decide what side you want your bangs to "swoop' to...
(if you have a cowlick I would start the bang from that point and make them swoop to the opposite side)



Comb all forward




Take horizontal sections
(don't mind my roots) :)



Here is the point where you can either round brush
 (if your hair is a bit damp still) 
or if you are working with worn in hair, use a flat iron.



the key is to go straight down with a little bend inward at the ends.(see pic below)
continue taking horizontal sections and doing the same, flat iron or round brush straight down with a little bend at the end....continue this pattern until all your bangs are going forward.




Now take your last section of bang you just flat ironed....
and back comb at the base(only on the under side) the side you see in the picture.




Do that with all sections..only at the base....then use 
your fingers in a rake like motion to smooth (see below pic)




Next, take hair spray and spray on your finger tips and lightly pinch 
your bang over to the side....repeat if needed.




Now hold your hand under your bangs and spray with hair spray
...about 10 inches away, you want a mist not a blast!!




And you are done!....
It should stay out of your way and perfectly swept!




Recap 

To make it more easy, I broke it down into 5 sections


HAPPY FRIDAY!

  2. What is back comb? I don't understand....

    1. Like "teasing". You know how you comb your hair downwards? You just comb UP, against the hair, next to the roots.

  3. Its like 'teasing' your hair. Instead of a regular brushing motion, brush it the opposite direction.

  4. So when you tell your stylist you want "side swept bangs" she might ask, "how thick" or something. Is there a way to describe it to make sure the CUT is good first? Thanks!

    1. Hi Deb! When it comes to hair pictures are the best communicating tools between you and your stylist! My advice bring in pictures of bangs you like...and tell them you don't want them to "heavy". Depending on your hair type they should cut accordingly! Hope that helps!

  9. What if your bangs are short? My hair is about midway between my chin and shoulders in a slightly angled bob, and my bangs are only about 1/2 inch past my brows. Does this same technique work with short bangs? I can never get them to lay right! My hair is also super thick.

    1. A cow lick is hair that grows in a weird direction or sticks out in a funny way from the rest of your hair. It's because your hair grows in a pattern around or on your head. Sometimes it goes the opposite of what you want or in the direction you are styling!

  13. Do you have a picture of the before picture?

  16. Any advice for us blessed/cursed with naturally curly hair? I straighten my hair constantly and side sweep my bangs (or try to anyway) and its the first thing that ends up a wavy mess again when I hit humidity. I use Paul Mitchell skinny serum to help straighten and still a struggle .

  38. I have been casting spells for many years and I have helped many people, I might be able to help you too. I am honest, and I genuinely care for all the clients who choose me to cast a spell for them.
    If you have any questions about Love, Money, curse, protection, bad luck, divorce, court cases, or about me please call or email me. I really want you to feel comfortable before moving forward with any spells, or other services. I will take the time to explain things to you and provide you with honest advice, to what is best for your situation. I will not pressure you into having a spell cast, I will leave that decision up to you, and when or if you decide to move forward, I might be able to help you.
    I will respect your Privacy. I will not seek to obtain any of your personal information beyond what you might voluntarily offer and all information you might give me including emails, phone numbers and photos will remain private and confidential.
    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
    You will get what you seek.But please understand this might take a lot of time and that individual results may vary. contact +27663492930, greatogudugu@gmail.com
