Happy, happy Friday! I hope you're all doing well and decorating away for the holidays! As you may know, I just celebrated my birthday a few weeks ago and thought it was the perfect time to make some changes to my look. I brought back the heavy bangs, which I like to do every winter season.  I find that rockin' bangs is the easiest way to change up your look without having to sacrifice length or damage to your hair from coloring. When done right, bangs can be super flattering & versatile, and I'm here to show you how!

1. Subtle Bangs: For a soft and natural look, wear your hair parted in the middle with your bangs nearly the same way.  This adds dimension to your hairstyle and is a great way to transition into your new fringed look.

2. Sideswept Bangs: This is a popular style and I love how it gives a vintage look to your appearance. Having your bangs rest mostly to one side will highlight your gorgeous eyes and will frame your face in the most flattering way possible.

3. Hats + Bangs:  For the beloved hat lovers, there's nothing cuter than rockin' bangs with your favorite hats. I think it's so sophisticated and sexy to have your bangs peeking through a felt fedora or knit beanie. I give two thumbs up to this look for sure!

4. Bold Lips + Bangs: You'll find that with longer bangs, you don't have to wear as much eye makeup as you normally do. So, this is the perfect opportunity to add color to your lips with a well pigmented lipstick!

5. Elevate your Updo: Bangs will take an updo to the next level! Since your hair is pulled completely away from your face, it's nice to bring some hair pieces back in the front to frame and add structure to your face.

6. Shaggy Bangs: Last but not least, is the classic shaggy fringe. To create this look, drying your bangs in a special way is key. Take a flat brush and dry your bangs from side to side with the dryer facing downward. This will help eliminate any cowlicks you may have, creating smooth and straight bangs. I like to use my finger tips to shake my bangs at the roots until they lay the way I like them. To bring bounce back into your bangs on second day hair, try using a dry shampoo, like this one I've been using this past month.

Bangs can be personal based on your face shape, so I've also linked an article from InStyle.com on their recommendations for different lengths, here. I hope these looks were helpful and encourages you to try a fringed look this season!  'Til next time....xo

P.S...I apologize for the lighting & photo quality.  It's been a very gloomy few days here in Houston, with very little natural light outside. I just had to make do. ;D

Warmly ~
