‘‘YOU CAN DO A SIDE BANG ON BOTH LONG AND SHORT HAIR. THE MAIN PURPOSE OF A SWEPT BANG IS TO BRUSH AWAY HAIR FROM THE FORE HEAD. AT LEAST THIS WILL CREATE SOME SPACE FOR THE FORE HEAD. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TREAT YOUR BANG IN THE SAME WAY YOU DO WITH THE REST OF THE HAIR, FOR EXAMPLE; IF YOU BLEACH YOUR HAIR TO A BLONDE COLOR, DO THE SAME TO THE BANG, IT HAS TO BE OF THE SAME COLOR / TEXTURE AND DESIGN LIKE THE REST OF THE HAIR.”
- Wash/ Damp your hair: So, you might be asking yourself, why should I wash the entire hair yet all I need is to side sweep my bang? Right question, your main goal is to style that bang, but you can’t treat a bang alone and leave the rest of your hair unattended too. Your hair has to be in the same condition like your bang. That is why I advise you to wash your hair including the bang. This will give you a fresh start and it will also make the bang soft and moist, hence becoming easy to style. Use a good hair shampoo / conditioner to clean your hair. Make sure you stay away from shampoo which contains sulfate, this is a strong cleaning chemical, it will strip all essential oils from your hair and bang. Rinse out the shampoo with Luke warm water / cold water this will help you retain a huge volume of hair.
- Blow Dry Your Bang: – After washing your hair and bang, you need to blow dry your hair and bang. But when blow drying that bang, put a brush under the bang, lift the bang with a brush and then blow dry it. I suggest this option because a bang is always small and it close to the fore head, so you blow dry it directly, you might heat-up your fore head skin and also cause harm to your eyes. Make sure your hair and bang is completely wet free before you start styling.
Brush the Bang: After blow drying it, you can go ahead and brush it straight, that is if you have a straight hairstyle. But if your hair is curly / wavy, you can use the tail of your comb to perfect the bang. You should as well comb the rest of the hair so that you look neat.
