Bangs like Taylor Swift?

MoopyMoopy Posts: 16Registered Users
Hey everyone!
I was just wondering, has anyone found a way to get their bangs to look similar to Taylor Swift's? She has what would be dream hair for me, and my curl is similar to hers, but I can never seem to get it to look the same, especially in the front.
Here's a pic I absolutely love and keep trying to copy with little success:
So... any ideas? Maybe?

    Her hair is gorgeous, and you're really lucky if you have hair like hers!

    I'd say go to a good hairdresser and show her the picture and get her to cut your bangs like that. I don't know if you can get bangs like that yourself. Also, remember that she's probably had a bunch of hairstylists working on her hair, so probably used curling irons and stuff on her hair, so don't fret if it doesn't look *exactly* like her hair.

    Anyways, good luck!

    i love taylor swift's hair too!! i mean really, who doesn't? anyways, i definitely think there was some curling iron action going on in that picture, from the way they are kinda flipping up and away from her face, and the fact that the bangs are straighter at the root than the rest of her hair. So, i'd say her look does require styling so go for if you're willing to style your bangs! i'm sure it couldn't look bad if your hair is similar to taylor's (oh yah, we're on a first name basis lol)

    i no her hair is georgous and ive always wanted hair like a celeb.

    but ive come to realize that they dont just wake up and do their hair themselves like we do. they have like hair and makeup crews that do and perfect it for them.

    I have done something like that with my hair its really not that hard at all. My girlfriend is a hair dresser and showed me how. I will see if I can find a pic some where of what it looked like. So heres how to do it:

    1. Wash your hair and style it as usual, let it dry completely!

    2. Using a comb part your (straight line) on one side I always do it on my right side. Put it in a clip or something so it doesn't get in your way. Keeping the part in place pull out like a 3-4 inch square from the bangs on the opposite side (hope this makes sense).

    3. Coat it with some heat protector creme. Take a flat iron (a Chi is by far the best flat iron out there, and the only one I use) and iron it till its straight. You may also want to add a little hair spray to make sure it doesn't frizz back up.

    4. Take a curling iron now and make some big loops out of the straightened bangs try to get as close to your head as you can. Hairspray and finger through them to give them that toussled look.

    5. Pull back the ends of the bangs and tuck them behind your ear and secure with a bobby pin.

    I got so many complements when I did it this way it was crazy. But it takes a lot of work, and if its humid or wet out side it makes a totall flop and looks horrid. Hope this helps!!!

    Wet your bands and dry them with a round brush to the side to lift the roots, then take a spiral iron and spiral or let your natural curls go on your bangs. i love it though that some one famous for the teens is sporting their hair color, i wanted my hair straight for so long but i love it now because its different. and she s my age so its kinda cool

    I think this website is awesome!! I LOVE Taylor Swift and I have blond curly hair just like hers! I just need to figure out how to style my hair. It's kinda hard because it's so curly but I think I'll try it tomorrow.

    Just get long side swept bangs and straighten kind of sucks, but i straighten my bangs.
  • kayemmkay159kayemmkay159 Posts: 171Registered Users
    well i do that with my bangs too and itlooks kinda similair. i let them air dry but then in the morning if they dont look good you curl them so they wrap around your other peices of hair.. did that make sense? idk its hard to explain.

    this only really works because i shower at night:

    I section of my bangs with a clip, then style the bulk of my hair. Right before bed i put my hair up, then put lot of gel in my bangs (sounds gross but bear with me) and pull them flat around my head with like 2 or three clips (so the tiny bits don't escape). In the morning i scrunch it out a lot! and it's soft and straight with a tiny flip at the end.

    ok with this you kinda want to ask your hairdresser to do long razored bangs in one side of your head and use a curling iron to touch up your hair and/or bangs
  • danielle42danielle42 Posts: 9Registered Users
    I love Taylor Swifts hair, especailly how she does her bangs. I had bangs for the longest time that i straightened after I blew dry my hair. I got so sick of blow drying my hair and seperating the bangs to straighten them, making sure I didn't get any of the other curls mixed in with my bangs.
    Finally I gave up with the straigtener and what I do is part my bangs how I would normally wear them straight, add my product and start blow drying my hair like I normally would. When they are still damp I take my bangs and start twisting them right about eye level so some of the bang over my forhead stays semi straight/waved. I finish blow drying them carefully until dry.
    Hope this makes sense and helps you.

    I tried getting her bangs once and to get pretty close you have to use a curling iron to straighten the first part and then as you go down once you get to the end part you curl it up and away from you. HTH! :blob6:

    I have used Taylor as an inspiration for my own hair styles, and I found that I had a hard time at first getting the bangs right. I had shorter bangs for a while, but let them grow out, and sometimes just let them stay how they want and it seems to be closer to the look I'm going for. My natural curls are better than trying to use an iron to get the look, but sometimes I just hairspray the bangs back away from my face, and clip them under all the rest of the hair just by my ear so that they are just brushing my eye. It's the best I've gotten so far.

    i think that she has long side swept bangs and it almost looks as if she straightens half of it and lets the rest b curly...

    taylor swift actually doesn't have bangs. she straightens a part of her hair back to make it look like bangs. Just try to straighten the top half of your hair at the front and pull it back with the straightener. Thats also not her natural hair. She does have naturally curly hair, but she curls the top by wrapping a curl around the curling iron. ( not twisting the iron up)

    I think Im going to try out everyones suggestions but my curling iron is on it's last leg. I dont think it's gonna make it past winter. Well i have no bangs at all any way, all my hair is long and I cut it myself. Hopefully it will work.

    I suggest getting long side swept bangs, take that picture to your stylist and they should know what to do. Good luck!

    I do love her hair! Inspired me to grow mine out. In a interview I read she said she used to hate her curly hair but grew to love it later. She also said that its kinda high maintainence and she has to fix it daily with a 1in curling iron all over the place.

    Here is what I like to do - it works very well!

    When I get out of the shower, I brush my part into place on the side and then push water back into my hair so that the curl "clumps" reform. I brush my bangs into a side-swept position and then pin them to stay. Then I apply all my usual products, and let my hair air-dry, from being soaking wet. The result is very soft and curly, and loose and not too tight with the top part of your hair being straight, the way Taylor's is. I sometimes need to run an iron through the very ends of my bangs cause they get crimped from being pinned back, but this way you don't have to bother with letting your hair dry and then trying to straighten just the top part of your bangs (if they are long), because this usually just results in the bottoms of your bangs getting really frizzy!

    This has worked very well for me; the trick is just brushing it down first, THEN re-wetting the parts of your hair that do not lie against your head so that they can curl as they please and your bangs and top part of your hair will stay soft and flexible. My hair is very lightweight so it doesn't look "plastered to my head" when I do this - if it does, though, just turn your head upside-down and rub your fingers over your roots to give them a little lift without disturbing the ends of your hair.

    I hope this helps and makes sense!

    getting t. swift hair isnt hard. straighten your bangs then take a curling iron and curl the ends to match the rest of your hair....hope it works! :lol:
  • curlycountrygirl13curlycountrygirl13 Posts: 1Registered Users
    If you want your hair to look EXACTLY like Taylor's you need your hair to be almost to your waist when it is straight, since when it is curly it is a lot shorter. You just take a 3/4 inch curling iron and wrap your hair AROUND the iron instead of using the clamp, taking very small sections.
    Taylor has normal sidebangs. if you JUST want to do your bangs, then wrap your hair around a 3/4 inch curling iron, but only curl the bang that is right under your eye, since she leaves a little bit of straightness from her eye up.
    Hope this helped!
