There's no doubt about it, bangs can be sophisticated, flirty, and fun --- sometimes all at once. There's a bang shape that works for everybody, but when it's time to grow them out, they're more of a burden than a beauty boon -- even to celebs like Lea Michele. Our friends at BellaSugar will help you deal with bangs when they're in that awkward stage.
Are your bangs all one length? If not, you need to work on evening them out. A lot of styles are shorter in the middle, and a bit longer on the sides. Wait until the shortest part of your bangs reaches just above your lashes, then trim them (just a touch!) so that they are all the same length like Jada Pinkett Smith's. They will be much easier to manage this way.
Hair accessories are now officially your best friends. Indulge in some retail therapy and pick up a new sparkly clip or fun patent leather headband like Jessica Stam's to help get you through the next few months.
Focus on hairstyles like Kate Mara's that help the bangs blend into the rest of your hair. Part the front of your hair in the middle, twisting it off to either side, and securing it with clips. This might work better when your bangs are a bit longer. For shorter bangs, try twisting some of the longer hair from the side of your head in with the shorter pieces.
If you are going to push your bangs back with a headband like Scarlett Johansson, use a styling pomade to smooth them back into the rest of your hairstyle first. Otherwise, they will stick straight up behind the band. Try Bumble & Bumble Styling Wax. Or, you can pin them back with bobby pins, and place a headband or tie a hair ribbon right over the pins to conceal them.
