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