Bangs make the biggest impact when they are clean and sit naturally around the face, making a frame for your eyes and cheekbones. Hair that is fine or prone to oily conditions on a daily basis can often separate the hair at the middle of the forehead, creating a part where no part is desired. A few basic styling techniques can increase the longevity of those thick, unending bangs and prevent the possibility of separated or clumpy bangs.
Wash your hair as you normally would and towel dry. Make sure hair is not dripping wet before moving to the next stage of styling.
Place a pea-size amount of volumizing styling cream in your palm. Work into the bangs. Spray the bangs with a light mist of heat protectant.
Place the small paddle brush underneath the bangs at the root on the right side of your face. Include a chunk of hair from the center of the bangs. Turn the blow dryer on and point the nozzle down towards your bangs.
Pull the paddle brush down from the root and towards the center of your face keeping tension as you pull the hair towards your nose. Follow the path of the paddle brush with the blow dryer as you do this. Repeat this motion from the root to the tip a couple more times with the right side of the bangs. Pull the right side of your bangs straight down with the paddle brush and the blow dryer a final time so that the hair lies flat.
Begin the blow drying process on the left side of your bangs making sure you include some of the hair from the center of the bangs. Place the paddle brush under the left side of the bangs and pull towards the center of your face just slightly as you follow along with the blow dryer. Repeat a couple of times and then pull the paddle brush straight down along with the hair dryer a final time so the hair lies flat on your forehead. This process will encourage the hairs to lie flat and in the right direction.
Smooth the hair down along the entire section of bangs using a flat iron. This process will smooth down flyaways and encourage the hair to stay in place.
Spray the bangs with a flexible hold hairspray very lightly.
