If you're thinking about getting bangs but aren't 100% sure about making such a long-term commitment, trying a clip-in fringe can really help. The thing is, fake hair doesn't sound half as good as the real thing. So, how can you make clip-ins seem real?

Get a trim

One of the best ways to get fake bangs to look like they sprouted from your very own scalp is to get them trimmed. This will make them fit perfectly with the rest of your hairstyle, and ensure they flatter your face shape.

Color

It may sound obvious, but like your foundation, your fringe won't look natural unless it's a perfect color match. As such, it's always good idea to get a second opinion from a friend or someone who works at the store.

Texture

Playing around with the texture of your hair can also help your faux bangs to blend seamlessly with your existing style. Spray your hair throughout with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, then use a medium-sized iron to create voluminous waves throughout. Shake your fingers through your hair, then fit the fringe when you're done.

A perfectly straight hairstyle might be more of a giveaway at the sides of your bangs, so if you want an ultra sleek look, put a disheveled spin on it with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to hide any telltale signs of fakery.

Fringe benefits

If you're still not convinced, bear in mind that faux bangs require no styling once they've been tailored to fit. They also don't need to be washed all the time, and they won't grow which means no extra trips to the salon. A winning combination, no?
