While I was brushing my hair the other day, I realized that I haven’t had a fringe in years and I missed it. Bangs are really cute and stylish and I could do with changing my hairstyle. And then, I remembered why I stopped wearing bangs so long ago: because when you get tired of them, it is no fun to grow them out! It can actually take six months to a year to grow out a fringe and what can you do in the meantime? Here are three ideas:
1. Accessorize it
Is your fringe too long? Then push it back with a headband. My favourites are those with adjustable elastics or gripping teeth that allow you to place the headband wherever you want on your head (near the hairline, somewhere in the middle etc). If headbands give you a headache, you can use bobby pins, clips, grips, combs and even head scarves. They are available in all colors, shapes and sizes and will give you a stylish look while concealing your bangs as they are growing out and keeping them out of your eyes.
2. Sweep it to the side
If your fringe is quite long, you can part it in the center and then blowdry the two parts in the opposite sides. That way the fringe will blend in with your hairstyle. You can also ask your hairstylist to cut your bangs into a side-fringe so that you’ll look chic while you are waiting for them to grow out.
3. Lift it
If your bangs are getting a bit too long and start to drape over the eyes, you can give it a little lift. How? There are two ways to do it. You can either use a round curling brush while blowdrying it, or you can backcomb it at the roots. This way you’ll like stylish and the fringe won’t impair your vision.
