  • to do these looks .. blow dry pushing hair down against your scalp rather that putting the brush under your hair to blow dry. This will allow the most length to come out with what you have. Then style with gel (lightly) with pieces to create that funky and fun pixie bang look.

    Or you can always just pull them back. a clip, head band, etc, can help hide bangs you don't want to see.

    pending on hair type and the length of the bangs, you can always do a wrap braid to hide them, or if they are long enough you may be able to clip them under your hair along the sides.

    you can also do a feathered curl off to the sides which can sometimes hide them (pending on length, existances of collicks, widows peaks etc that may hinder that look).

  • a round brush and blow dryer or a flat iron with some heavy product on the roots to weigh they down.

  • When you first get bangs, that hair is almost trained to go in the other direction. Mine always wanted to part down the middle and go back when I got them. Not a good look, as you can imagine. Sunshine's suggestion is good, and eventually they will behave.

  • hairspray and curl it.

  • I recently got bangs too. At first I hated it because I had the same problem and they were so short that the round brush made them kinda poofy lol. I used a flat iron and lots of hairspray everyday to 'train' them to go in the right direction. I also use Avon Advanced Techniques products to keep the flat iron from causing damage to my bangs, which can make them look a lot worse.

  • Oh, here is a link to Avon if you want to check out their hair products. They also sell dryers, irons, curlers, ect.  Even extensions.

  • The beauty of bangs is that they grow fast. I used to mess mine up every single time I cut them. I'd always cut them too short and there was nothing I could do to fix it! I'd just comb them when they were wet the best way I could, and wait for them to grow.
    You could also try braiding them to the side, if you like that look, or just twisting them and pinning them - that is, if they'll cooperate. I'm growing mine out right now and that's what I do.

    a new stylist first off. Secondly you can do a few things.. use a PADDLE BRUSH or vent brush(not a round brush) to blow dry, because a round brush will add more lift and make them look shorter. Then a flat iron. there are a few styles you can do with it with these tools. Work with what you got.. and do the short pixie looking bangs:
