How-to (Beauty)

How do I style my bangs?

From the right way to trim to three easy, pretty looks, the brilliant Kattia Solano, stylist and owner of Butterfly Studio Salon in Manhattan, knows what to do with bangs.

  • Shampoo your bangs even if you're not washing the rest of your hair. Since they lie on your face, they tend to get oilier faster.
  • Don't use a brush until they're almost dry. Instead, with one hand, pull bangs tightly over to one side and blow-dry the roots, holding the dryer above your head so the air blows downward. Then pull bangs to the opposite side and hit again with the dryer. "You get a really smooth, flat finish," says Solano.
  • At the very end, flick just the ends through with a round brush. Move it quickly and you'll get the ideal amount of movement without poufiness.
