Updo with faux bangs

Are you thinking about getting bangs but not 100% you want to commit? If so, we recommend you try creating some faux bangs to help you decide whether a fringe is really for you. There are all kinds of ways to wear faux bangs, but an updo will keep the rest of your hair out of the way, allowing you to better gauge how you feel about them.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream throughout and rough dry.

Step 2
Once dried, part your hair deep on one side. Section off a large piece of hair at the front, taking it from the bigger side, and clip it out of the way. This will be used to create your temporary bangs later on.

Step 3
Sweep the rest of your hair back into a messy bun or French twist, and secure with bobby pins.

Step 4
Let down the hair at the front, then drape it across your forehead and pin near your ear on the other side. You can use a comb to smooth your fair-weather bangs into place for a slightly tidier style than the one on the model opposite.

Step 5
Add shine and tame any flyaways with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Spray to finish. That's it!
