As much as I love my blunt, straight across bangs, they are totally getting out of hand!
I’ve decided not to re-cut them into shape for now for a change of pace. While I’m no hair expert or even a person who takes the time to style their hair in the morning, I’m currently researching how to tackle this awkward hair stage. It’s difficult to go through everyday life tasks, like while exercising, conducting experiments, or even typing on the computer, when chunks of hair fall in line of vision!
Here are a few solutions I have thought up of:
- The most obvious solution is to implement a side bang by putting a part in your hair slightly off center.
- You can use a flat iron to set it in place, which is shown in the following ASecretLifeofaBioNerd video (starts at 0:59), though I like to just repeatedly comb my hair until it listens to me.
Of course, if your bangs are not as long as mine are now, you could always use a bobby pins or a clip for a very neat look.
- Another option would be to make a braid across your head, incorporating your bangs as you go.
I have very thick hair, so I am also able to just twist my bangs and pin it to the side for a similar effect. I put a rose pin to tuck in any loose ends.
- Headband! Not only a godsend in the gym. I like to either put a part in my hair, pin unruly bangs to the side, hide it with the headband. Or I also like to brush out the part and place the headband on top.
You can tease the bangs to puff out a bit if you like. I tried to do it, but failed.
