Styling Growing Bangs

So I've thought about growing out my bangs. Before, they were short enough to fall into a natural wave over my forehead like a side-swept side (without any heat so woo), but I've recently been growing them out. However, with them growing out comes the awkward phase where my bangs curl strangely on my head and look messy.

I was wondering how I could style my growing bangs to look nice with minimal effort. Anybody have any ideas?

    When I was growing my bangs out I would pin them up a lot, usually with a little braid or twist

    I used to have straight across bangs before going curly.  Curly bangs aren't for me so I've also been growing them out. 

    What's worked from me is parting my hair to the side, then clipping my bangs to the opposite side of the part with a small claw clip
