How to Barrel Bangs

Pump up the volume on your fringe with the barrel roll technique. The barrel roll, a hair fashion derived from past decades, involves curling your fringe into a large roll. The technique is sculpted using both hot and cold rollers or a curling iron to form the fringe into a large, circular shape. Once the shape of the fringe is complete, you can use a comb or brush to fluff the hair up or straighten any loose ends without the bang loosing shape.

Moderately Easy

Things you need

    Roller Barrel Bangs

  1. 1

    Brush fringe forward with a comb to ensure the hair is tangle-free.

  2. 2

    Gather the fringe in your hand and lightly spritz the hair with medium-hold hairspray.

  3. 3

    Start at the tip of the hair and curl the roller under the hair. Wrap all the pieces of your fringe around the large roller so it creates an even roll.

  4. 4

    Leave a hot roller in the hair for up to 15 minutes. A Velcro roller can be left in the hair for up to 30 minutes.

  5. 5

    Unroll the roller and remove from hair. Brush or comb the fringe to style.

    Curling Iron Barrel Bangs

  1. 1

    Brush fringe forward to remove tangles, and grab the section with your hand. Lightly spritz the hair with medium-hold hairspray.

  2. 2

    Hold the curling iron in one hand, and the fringe in the other. Open the curling iron and carefully manuver the hair between the barrel and the clamp. Shut the clamp.

  3. 3

    Roll the curling iron under the fringe towards the scalp. Stop the curling iron at 1/4 inch from the scalp to prevent burning.

  4. 4

    Let the curling iron sit in that position for five seconds. Any longer may burn your hair.

  5. 5

    Uncurl the curling iron from the hair, and release the hair from the iron. Let the fringe cool for three to five seconds before using a comb or brush on them.

Tips and warnings

  • Avoid curling hair while wet because this may cause the hair to break.
  • Use caution when working with hot rollers and curling irons.
