Afro hair is incredibly versatile and can be styled in various ways but committing to bangs is where many naturals draw the line. I mean, who wants to sacrifice their hard-earned length by risking an unfavorable cut?!
If you’re a natural who’s a lover of the curly bangs trend and would love to try it out without the full commitment of cutting your hair, you’ve come to the right place sis, we got you!
The trendy faux bangs are here to save the day! This hair hack offers endless possibilities for styling and expression, as well as experimenting new looks all while keeping your precious strands intact.
Let’s get started!
As the name implies, all you’ll need for this method is a bobby pin (or two).
Start by leaving your hair out and spreading it evenly towards all sides.
Next, you’re going to take the front part and section off the area you want for your bangs. Be sure not to make a part too thick or too thin. Medium sized volume is enough for the look.
After parting, push the parted section back a bit, pushing it up to your desired bangs length,and then secure the spot with a bobby pin or two if needed. Be sure to check the length of the bangs before fastening on the pin to ensure that it’s the right length you want.
When your pin is secured, make sure to blend out the surrounding areas of the bangs with your fingers to give it that seamless finish.
For this method, you’re going to need a hair tie or a scrunchie, along with a headband and/or a scarf.
Start off the look by sectioning your hair into two parts being top and bottom.
Next, begin working with the bottom, tying that section up into a playful messy bun. Tie the bun loosely while letting some of the curls seep through for that effortless vibe.
When you’re done tying the bun, grab the section that’s left (the top apart you sectioned earlier) and fold it up letting the ends dangle just above or slightly below your eyebrows. This will serve as your bangs.
The next step is to secure the folded part with a bobby pin and place the headband over it.
For a more stylish look, take a long scarf and tie it once over the headband. Place the headband on your head and use the scarf to cover it all the way to the back. You can tie a knot of a bow at the back for a more elegant look.
When you’re done with all the steps, spread out your freshly created bangs for a more even finish.
