How do you style the front of your hair?

Just wondering if you guys could give some advice and possibly pics on how you style the front of your hair, whether you have bangs, are trying to grow them out or none at all I would just like to know. Do most of you part, any of you flip your hair from side to side throughout the day, just let it naturally fall?? Thanks!!

    I diffuse upside down, then when I flip over, my hair will naturally part in the middle. My "bangs" are long, so I just let them curl but I stick them behind my ears. I am thinking of getting them cut so they will be side swept bangs, in that case I would blow them straight and let the rest dry wavy (diffuser).

    My hair naturally falls with a part on one side. To avoid flattop, I clip along the part. For the front section, I use a clips to shape the curls so that they don't fall in my face.

    I part my hair after plopping. It can be parted in the middle or either side depending on where my curl seems best after plopping. Occasionally I have to clip, if the curl seems flat. But usually diffusing gets rid of any flat top-edness.

    My front pieces are shorter than my back because I started out with a pixie cut and there are still layers from that. But no bangs - just a bit shorter.

    I also have a natural side part. I have some cheekbone/chin length bangs ... not really enough to call bangs just a few locks that are too short to fit into and updo an they just hang out by my face.

    I don't do much in the way of styling them I just let my hair do its own thing but try to protect my hair at night, because I sleep on my back with a pillow on top of my face and my bangs are the first part of my hair to see damage because of that.

    I gotta ask. How do you sleep like that?! *lol*

    Anyway, my "bangs" fall around my jawline (really not bangs, just my shortest layers), and I just let them curl and do their thing. If they fall in my face too much, I might tuck them behind my ears, or if it gets too bad, I'll even go so far as to loosely twist back a few curls from each temple and secure them with hair combs. That way, they stay out of my face and my curls don't get all messed up and straightened if I want to wear it down again, but I still get my length.

    I do a side part with a comb and have side-swept, angled bangs which I straighten. I've tried growing them out but I just don't suit it and I recently tried growing them longer so I could leave them curly but they wouldn't co-operate so I had them cut again.

    my hair parts naturally in the middle. I let it dry like that and pull it back into a tiny little half ponytail which I pin back. It gives me better lift on my crown. You can see it in my Fotki.

    I do a side part and then clip it to make sure it stays. I have shorter hair so it helps it not to look to pyramid-ish.

    I'm having lots of problems with my bangs.. Having recently started CG and given up my curling iron, I'm starting to grow them out for the first time in my life. While I'm going through this awkward stage, I either clip them back with a few mini jaw clips, or use a bit or root lift spray to help them go off to whichever side it seems they want to go. Pics of both are in my fotki.

    I pretty much let my hair naturally fall. My hair is pretty fine, so if I do any serious straight part, it looks funny and thin I think. It usually ends up with a side-ish looking part in the front, but with the hair going back towards the top of my head instead of hanging on either side... if that makes sense. The top is just however it clumps and falls. I had bangs at one point, but now my "bangs" are just as long as my shortest layers, just about shoulder length, so they sort of blend in I guess. I don't really like having hair in/on my face because I feel like it makes my face look square or long or something if I do.. It really has a lot to do with your facial features in terms of how "front hair" looks best. :)

    I used to have bangs but a stylist convinced me to grow them out because my hairline is low so I have practically no forehead. So then my hair was in my eyes, constantly, and putting it behind my ears ruined the curl. This site saved me by teaching me about plopping, upside down scrunching, and (if that doesn't work) clipping. Problem solved!

    Wurly and proud!

    After plopping I just let the part fall where it wants to. Then I clip in a jaw like fashion. After about an hour I diffuse upside down leaving the clips in, sometimes a few fall out but no big deal, then I remove clips and keep drying. I have pics of clipping in my fotki.
