As you can see, my fringe is a little out of control these days. It’s been about 4 months since I had a trim, and I’ve been pretty lazy about booking a hair appointment or trimming it myself (which I usually do). I figured I was likely not the only one this happens to regularly, so I thought it made sense to show you some ways to style your fringe when you’re in-between haircuts or trying to grow out them bangs, so that our eyeballs may see and not be poked by strands of hair all day long.
The Bette Middler: This is a style I sport most often when my bangs are too long to sit straight across my forehead; it’s pretty simple as you can see…just part your bangs down the middle, following your natural part (if you have one). If you find your fringe is not staying in it’s desired place, try bobby pinning each side for a little before leaving the house – that should help to keep them in place, and when in doubt, a little hairspray goes a long way.
The Twister: This style can be a bit scary if you don a straight-across fringe religiously, like myself – I mean, our fringe is what hides our forehead, and now we are exposing it! But you know what, lets live without fear! To achieve this style, just start twisting your fringe at the root and continue down until our entire fringe is twisted and then fasten with a bobby pin; you can hide that pin by placing some hair over-top or you could also use a fun hair clip to hold in place.
The Wave: This one is a teeny bit more time consuming, but well worth it. Parting your fringe to one side, use a curling iron (a flat iron might work as well), and wrap parts of your fringe – starting from the root and working downward – in an ‘under and over motion’ around your iron, so that your waves (or curls) are held upwards, a la Farrah Fawcett styles. Continue this until you’ve got your desired wave going on.
The Side Bitch: Another style I sport most often is a simple side bang. In my case, naturally, my hair likes to part this way, so it’s quite easy for it to stay in place, but if you are finding it is moving about, again, a bobby pin to hold it in place will do, either all day if you have a cute pin, or just for a little while before leaving the house so your hair knows it’s place (she just a side bitch, after-all).
