flip bangs

You love bangs. You don’t love bangs. You love bangs…Undecided about how to approach this trendy new-season coif detail? Then, opt for this clever style solution. Have your favorite mane pro shape long “bangs”—otherwise known as lengthy layers—that hit at about nose level. You then have the option of shaping them as sideswept bangs (“swoop bangs”), taking a curling wand to them and flipping them upward (as shown here) or just brushing them back to reveal your pretty face. Clever, right?
