How-To Style: side swept/overgrown bangs

Word on the street is:  I got a new haircut. Except the thing is, as with news whose mode of transportation is usually that of streets and vines, this rumor is false. Downright false, I tell you, and I’m here to set the record straight, because I know how much cognitive space my very own head of hair takes up in your waking hours.

I shot a quick – might I reiterate – quick, too-long, semi-chatty video about how I’ve been a-stylin’ my front fringe these days. A little how-to, if you will. And if you won’t, that’s fine, too! I just get questions semi-often when I wear my bangs to the side:  a) is it a new cut? or b) how do I style them?

I’m here to show you, friends, it’s really pretty simple. I’ll say it in the video, but this is a hopefully helpful tool if you’ve forgone a haircut for so long your husband calls you “Cousin It” when your bangs hang low OR you’re in the process of genuinely growing them out.  Mine is the former. Key takeaway: create separation along the part + add bend to make them move in the direction you want them to.

I’m a strong believer in a good haircut, but maybe an even stronger believer in learning how to work with the cut you’re given and figure out what products/techniques give you the ‘do you just can’t quit selfie-ing.

Prepare yourself for the most high-budget film of your life. It is Oscar Season, after all.
