Growing Out Your Bangs? How To Survive The Awkward Length

Some time ago you decided you wanted bangs and, after careful consideration, you chopped off your hair to rock the cutest bangs ever. But now you got tired, bored or simply realized they don’t really suit you as much. No problem, hair can always grow back. Except now you are at that awkward length that won’t let you pull them back and they are constantly on your eyes. Here’s how to get your bangs out of your face and still look cute.

Bobby pins are your friends

For the next few months, bobby pins are going to be with you at all times. One way to get your bangs out of your face is to tease them slightly and push them back, towards your crown. Use one or two bobby pins to secure them in place. To avoid them falling off, use the bobby pins wavy side down. If you don’t want the volume and have straight hair, slick your bangs to the side and secure them with a couple of bobby pins behind your ears. Use as much spray as needed. Let your hair fall straight over your ears to cover the pins and look as fashionable as always. An alternative to the slick is to sweep them to the side with a slight twist and secure them with a bobby pin. Then, grab a section of hair from the front and pull it back to cover the pin, secure with another bobby pin and let the rest of your hair fall over it.

Twist your bangs and pin them to the side of your hair. Another way to use the twist is to part your hair in the middle, divide your bangs and twist each part to its respective side, securing them with hidden pins for a romantic and easy look. If you want a bit more volume, you can do a waterfall braid and pin them to the crown. For a hairstyle that looks a lot more complicated than it actually is, braid your bangs straight back with your crown and let the rest of your hair down. A different choice is to do a regular braid and sweep it to the side, covering the hair tie and pin with the rest of your hair.

Embrace accessories

I’m not going to lie, there are going to be some days when you will not be able to get your bangs to behave. On those days, cover them completely with a thick headband or scarf. That’ll teach them. Use an elastic hairband to twist and tuck your hair for an easy up-do that will get all your hair out of your face. If you are trying to keep all your hair back at the gym, try a tiered ponytail. Sleek your bangs back and secure with a hair tie, grab the next section of your hair and secure with another hair tie, continue securing all the sections of your hair together until you are sure there’s not a single hair that can escape and go bother your face while you are in the middle of your routine.
