If you want to get bangs but aren't sure what length you want them to be, a long parted fringe is probably the best place to start. Not only is it more flexible than short bangs when styling, it will also be a lot easier to grow out, should you decide that bangs aren't for you after all.

Fringe benefits

Unlike micro bangs, a longer cut leaves enough room to sweep the fringe to one side, part it in the middle, pin it back or even braid it into the rest of your hair. It's the perfect way for hairstyle commitment phobes to test out the look and work out whether to go shorter.

Long bangs do require regular trims to keep vision obstruction to a minimum, but if you can't make it to the salon, rest assured that the peekaboo look is sultry and mysterious enough to be cool anyway.

Styling tips

Before blow-drying, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair. This will smooth your locks as they dry, helping to keep your bangs frizz free.

Once dried, use a flat iron for an touch ups, then finish with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine.

If you need some extra hold, use a really small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty to sweep your bangs into place, then mist with hairspray.

So, whether en route to a shorter look or just because, will you try some long bangs of your very own?
