Growing Out Bangs - Styles and Pictures

badgercurlsbadgercurls Posts: 3,077Registered Users
After six months of straightening my hair most of the time, I've decided to go back to curly, which means it's time to grow out my side-swept bangs. I've been loosely pulling them straight back with bobby pins (pics soon), but I'm looking for a little more variety. I'm sure other people have gone through this, so I'd love to see your ideas or pictures for different ways deal with growing-out bangs. :)

    How long are your side-swept bangs? Maybe they can just turn them into face framing layers instead? Or maybe they will do that on their own, when left curly. :)

    Thanks, CurliLocks. :) They're still pretty short right now, somewhere between eye- and cheek-length when straight. The problem is that they don't curl nicely because they are so short; they just sort of frizz and spring straight out from my forehead! Once they are a little longer, I hope they will work well as face-framing layers.

    I took a picture a few minutes ago of my stand-by style. It's not bad, just boring after wearing it this way for more than a week straight:

    What she said! :) Show us a pic of them down too. My face-framing layers usually start around eye level (dry and curly). Maybe you can curl them around your pinkie to set them. I have to sometimes when they don't cooperate. ;) I clip them back too, when they annoy me. :p

    Awww, thanks both of you!

    I will try to let them dry down today and take a picture, but I may not have time. I hadn't thought of helping them along by wrapping them around my pinky - genius! ;)
