How To Do Parted Bangs

Updated April 17, 2017

Bangs are a strip of hair that covers or partially covers your forehead. They go in an out of style regularly, and variations including the side-swept, blunt and wispy fringe offer new twists on an old favourite. Parted fringe are simply fringe parted in the middle. The style is versatile and can be paired with hair down for a casual look or an updo for a night out.

Smooth a pea-sized amount of straightening balm over fringe that are clean and damp. The balm will make your fringe manageable and easier to manipulate into the style.

Run your fingers from the centre of your forehead through your fringe to divide the hair in half. Push half to one side.

Curl one half of the fringe onto the round brush by placing the brush right next to your forehead then brushing up while turning the brush in toward your face.

Blast the hair on the round brush with the blow dryer. As you dry the hair, pull the brush through your fringe and curl inward. Continue brushing and curling until the hair is completely dry. Brush and dry the other half of your fringe in the same manner.

Heat the flat iron until hot. Clamp the iron onto one half of the fringe near your scalp then slowly draw the iron down the hair. Use a smooth motion that follows the curve of your face. Each half of the fringe should frame your face. Repeat on the other half of the fringe.

Spray your fringe with hairspray to hold them in place.
