Do you prefer messy waves with bangs or without?

Messy, wavy hairstyles are trending everywhere right now, from the red carpet to the runway, and they'll continue to do so for a while yet. The big question is, do you prefer textured tresses with bangs or without? Let us know by voting above!

Messy, wavy hair with bangs

Depending on your natural hair texture, air dried, wavy bangs can look great with messy waves. They create a sultry, peekaboo look that can be toned down for daytime wear or dressed up with some statement makeup for a night out. When perfecting the texture, make sure the waves are fairly even all the way around your head to avoid an accidental bed head look - i.e. not the good kind.

Styling tip

Scrunch a small amount of flexible hold, matte product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through your hair and the ends of your bangs to enhance the texture.

Messy, wavy hair without bangs

Sans bangs, messy waves create a soft frame that opens up the whole face. It's the perfect style for a fresh faced makeup look, and it has a gorgeous summery vibe. Just make sure the waves look undone yet styled, rather than accidental!

Styling tip

Apply a texturizing spray like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and let your hair air dry most of the way. Then, add movement by blow-drying it in loosely twisted sections to finish.
