    Dust It by Osis Schwartzkopf is a dry volumizing powder that creates volume, texture and grit. Be cautious though because a little goes a long way!

  • #10 Hot Red Bangs

    Style by Ladies & Gentlemen Salon, Mentor, OH

    How to Style:

    1. Blow it out using your fingers, then use a large barrel curling iron to quickly toss in some loose curls.
    2. Pull through the curls before they’ve completely cooled to stretch them out to get the same effortless look.
    3. Tease the bangs with a brush for that wavy look.

    Recommended Products:

    Absolutely love Sebastian’s Re-Shape. Helps with the effortless styling, you get some hold, plus your hair is still touchable and you can re-style it throughout the day!

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Any face shape (your stylist should be able to help you out with the right face framing and bang length depending on your shape). Hair type should be a healthy density at whatever your length is with some natural texture.

    Tip:

    If you weren’t blessed with the natural texture, fake it! Use a texturizing spray or salt-water based spray to grit it up a bit.

  • #11 Heavy, Heavy Bangs

    The rich red color that fades out to a lighter shade at the ends is a must-have for the fall and foreseeable future. Heavy textured bangs and curls make it even better!

    Long red hair with bangs and big curls

    Style by Ladies & Gentlemen Salon, Mentor, OH

    How To Style:

    1. After hair is dry, wrap sections around the barrel of a curling iron.
    2. Once curls are cooled, you can go through and piece them out to separate them and put them where you want them.
    3. Use a round brush to blow out your bangs. Instead of rolling the brush to make your bangs round, put it at your roots. Blow with the dryer from roots to ends and pull it almost straight out.
    4. A finishing hairspray will help keep it all looking fabulous!

    Recommended Products:

    Use a finishing spray like Paul Mitchell’s Freeze and Shine Super Spray to get great hold and amazing shine all in one.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Any face shape can wear this look thanks to the overall length and the bangs. Most hair types can wear it too, depending on what your texture and density are like closer to the ends.

    Tip:

    If your hair starts to look a little rough when it’s really long, take a couple of inches off and see how much better it looks! You may think it will make a huge difference in the length, but once it’s gone, you won’t miss it. The way the fresh ends feel will make you want to get them cleaned up every six weeks or so.

  • #12 Tucked Away

    Amazingly fabulous voluminous hair isn’t natural for most people, but it looks great on pretty much everyone and is manageable with the right products and tools. Warmer tones look inviting and the shine keeps it looking fresh. Notice the color in the bangs!

    How To Style:

    1. Start with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, but go easy on the conditioner especially. After hair’s been towel dried, add in your favorite volumizing mousse or other styling product.
    2. Heat protection spray may or may not be necessary, depending on your styling product choice. Blow dry hair mostly dry, then use a large round brush or flip your head upside-down to get more lift at the roots.
    3. Blow dry the rest of the way. Use a working hairspray to coat strands with a product that will help hold those curls in longer without the stiff look. Use large hot rollers for the extra bouncy, voluminous curls.
    4. Use your fingers to style curls the direction you want them to go. Smooth bangs over to one side, then spray everything with a bit of finishing spray to lock it in.

    Recommended Products:

    For amazing volume, try Big Sexy’s product line.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Any face shape and hair type can wear this look. Ask your stylist which products will give you the most body for your hair type.

    Tip:

    Curling irons flatten the strands as they slide your hair through the clamp. Hot rollers help preserve the round shape of the hair, giving you a more full looking curl that lasts a lot longer.

  • #13 Twisted Bangs

    Look put together and professional with this fun side twist. The bangs serve to soften a style that may otherwise be harsh. Highlights make it more interesting, especially when there are multiple tones.

    How To Style:

    1. Blow hair out after applying a heat protection spray. Smooth over strands with flat iron on low setting if necessary. Use a round brush to smooth bangs in the direction you’d like them to fall.
    2. Gather the top half section of hair in the back and secure with a clip or bobby pins. Bring hair over one shoulder and divide into two parts.
    3. Let one part fall straight down, then twist the other part around the outside of it, securing the ends with bobby pins or a clip. Finish with a light mist of medium hold hairspray.

    Recommended Products:

    Try a smoothing product meant to keep out humidity and give a great healthy shine. I love Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Oval, some round or square, heart and subtle long face shapes can pull off this style. Most hair types, especially those with some natural texture, will style easily into this look.

    Tip:

    If you have a hard time getting the twisted part to stay put, try giving it just a little twist of its own in the opposite direction you’re wrapping it. You can also hide a few bobby pins up the length of the twist on the inside to help keep things together.

  • #14 Smooth, Rich And Dark Bangs

    Deep and dark softly curled hair looks mysterious, but not overly serious. Side-swept bangs cover either large and/or wide foreheads, or just take the edge off of the hairline. It’s touchable and clean, fresh and healthy, not too shiny and overall just right.

    Style by The Brown Aveda Institute, Mentor, OH

    How To Style:

    1. Use a styling product meant to smooth hair and help with control, then blow dry.
    2. Once hair is dry, wrap large sections around the outside of a curling iron barrel.
    3. Smooth over cooled curls to create the thicker tendrils using a soft natural bristle brush. Lightly mist with a finishing spray.

    Recommended Products:

    Condition hair on a weekly basis or use a small amount of a product like Orofluido to make hair look naturally luscious. You’ll get a much better look to your finished hairstyles.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Oval, round, square, long, heart shaped faces can wear this style. Most hair types can get some variation of this style. If your hair is super thin or fine, don’t be afraid to try extensions.

    Tip:

    Instead of adding shine spray, use products that infuse hair with a natural shine so your hair doesn’t end up looking plastic-y.

  • #15 Hide Behind These Deep Bangs

    Bright reds and coppers crown this fun style. Deep bangs and some subtle face framing finish the style off and soften it out.

    Style by Carmen Carmen Salon & Spa, Charlotte, NC

    How To Style:

    1. Add a styling crème to damp hair and blow dry with a large round brush.
    2. Once hair is completely dry, use a flat iron on a very low setting to smooth any renegade hairs.
    3. Top it off with a quick burst of medium hold hairspray.

    Recommended Products:

    Try out Ojon’s Restorative Hair Treatment (it’s a balm). It’s super concentrated so you don’t need to do it very often.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
    Oval, heart, round, square and long face shapes can wear this look. Any hair type can rock it too!

    Tip:

    For glossier locks, pamper your hair with a weekly or bi-weekly deep conditioning treatment. You can do it yourself at home or head to your local salon for their professional version.

  • #16 Long Hair And Angled Bangs

    This style is a no-brainer if you want to combine bangs with longer tresses. It’s simple and a classic to fall back on if you’re not sure what exactly you want to do with your hair. Keep it looking fabulous with fresh color and healthy hair practices.

    Style by Cloud 9 Salon, Martins Ferry, OH

    How To Style:

    1. Apply your favorite styling product while hair is damp.
    2. Let it air dry for a while, then finish blowing dry with a good paddle brush or large round brush.
    3. Smooth it out with a flat iron if you have to. You shouldn’t need a lot of hairspray or other product to keep it in place, but if you need something, use a light hold hairspray.

    Recommended Products:

    Try out Kenra’s Platinum Smoothing Crème. It doesn’t contain any holding properties, but it’s lightweight and will leave hair feeling silky and smooth.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Oval, some round or square, long and heart shaped faces can wear this look. Most hair types can have this style, but it’s easiest if you naturally have smooth hair.

    Tip:

    Visit your stylist every six weeks like clockwork to keep ends looking fresh and clean. Letting it go longer than that and you risk looking frayed and frizzy.

  • #17 Framed Choppy Bangs

    Flaunt what you’re able to grow with super long locks and deep cut bangs. A slight rounding of the corners and possibly a small amount of face framing are all the finishing touches necessary with this style outside the bangs. Easy to style — easy to maintain!

    How To Style:

    1. If you’ve got naturally smooth hair, put a little styling crème in it while it’s a damp and let it air dry. If you’ve got more texture to your hair, blow it out instead using a large round brush or paddle brush.
    2. Smooth strands with a flat iron on low setting if necessary. You don’t want to rob your ‘do of natural volume! Mist hair with a little light hold hairspray to tame flyaways and you’re done.

    Recommended Products:

    Sebastian’s Trilliant is a great heat protection spray as well as a shine spray.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Oval, round, some square, long and heart shaped faces can wear this look. Most hair textures can achieve this style, but it may take extra effort if your hair has a lot of natural texture to it.

    Tip:

    Speed up your drying time by using a shammy to whisk away excess moisture. It won’t make your hair frizzy or fluffy like your blow dryer can.

  • #18 Flawlessly Deep And Side Swept

    Long, smooth hair is always gorgeous! Pair it with deeply parted side-swept bangs and a dark rich color and you’ve got a total hit.

    How To Style:

    1. After completely drying hair, run a flat iron through it making sure hair goes in smoothly instead of bent.

    Recommended Products:

    Use AG’s Set It Straight Straightening Lotion for super sleek strands.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Oval, round, square, heart or long face shapes can pull off this look. All hair types can rock it.

    Tip:

    If you don’t feel like you’ve got enough hair density through the front of your hairline to pull off deep set bangs, try using a set of clip-in extensions made specifically as bangs. You can have them custom cut to blend in with your natural hair and they can look really natural.

  • #19 The Blunt Fringe

    Long, layered, loose, free and easy… That pretty much sums up this carefree but amazingly stylish hairstyle!

    Rachel Bilson with long hair and bangs

    Image courtesy of PRPhotos.com

    How To Style:

    1. Blow hair out using a round brush after applying your favorite styling product to damp hair. Volumizing spray at the roots can help keep it from looking flat.
    2. Instead of just pulling through ends with the round brush, rotate hair around the brush, making sure the direction of air flow is from roots to ends. Curling your hair with the brush instead of an iron will give you more luscious curls.
    3. Set the style using a light to medium hold hairspray.

    Recommended Products:

    For a little more volume, try Redken’s Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Any face shape and almost any hair type can pull off this look. If your hair is really fine around the hairline or past your shoulders it thins out a lot, make adjustments to the style so it still looks fashionable instead of tragic.

    Tip:

    Use the special nozzle that came with your blow dryer to help give you more control of where that hot air is blowing. It’s amazing what that little piece of plastic can do!

  • #20 Long Like Kim

    Always ready for the camera, this reality star is a pro at making her hair look 100% spot-on every minute, every day. Even her ponytails look trendy! The super long length and longer bangs that just graze the eyes look polished and well kept every time she steps out.

    How To Style:

    1. Let naturally smooth hair air dry after applying your favorite styling product or blow out wavier tresses using a large round brush. Flat irons are perfect for smoothing over any hairs that are out of control, or for just polishing the strands.
    2. Always use a heat protection spray if you plan on using any heat from a blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron.

    Recommended Products:

    If you really want to mimic Kim’s hair, try the Orlando Pita product line.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Any face shape with naturally smooth hair texture and at least a medium density can style into this look.

    Tip:

    You don’t have to be born with hair like this to look like Hollywood royalty. Hair extensions look better and better all the time. Invest in a good fall (piece that will cover a large section of the back of your head) or bonded individual extensions.

    Now rock that gorgeous long hair of yours and don’t be afraid to add a little “bang” to your look!
