SO many of you seemed to love the recent BANG BOOM POW post and according to your emails & comments, a lot of you either got bangs or plan on getting bangs in 2012 but you don’t really know how to style them.

BANG BOOM POW!

Tis the season for bangs, and verbally communicating what you want can be tough… “You know, like heavy but not too heavy, but like in my eyes, but not too much, but like whispy and blunt.” I hear that a lot. And while I’ve learned to translate this language, I still feel it’s always best to bring 1 or 2 pictures of the bangs you like and a picture of the bangs you don’t like. It makes communicating MUCH easier and could save you from annoying grow out period. Also, if one kind of bang isn’t a perfect fit, it’s ok to ask your stylist to create a hybrid of two! Here are a couple of the most requested bangs in my chair. Hope these help!

Before you commit to the real McCoy, maybe you want to try this quick trick. Wear these faux bangs over the weekend and see if you’re really into the idea of having them or if you were just having an underwhelming day.

Do it: Blow dry the entire “bang” section down toward your face first. Tease them for a little texture or smooth them out with a round brush for a more tailored look. Last, throw in a pretty little barrette… just to really sell it to yourself!
