Too Short Bangs

The Mistake: You couldn't wait for a salon trim, so you started snipping away, and now you have a seriously unfortunate fringe..

The Solutions: Weigh them down Using a pea-size amount of a styling cream to make the ends look longer. Keep in mind: Too much can easily lead to greasy strands.
Lengthen them by blow-drying the bangs flat against your forehead with a nozzle and your fingers—a brush will create lift.

The Pro Advice: Always cut bangs when they're dry; wet hair stretches and can shrink as much as three quarters of an inch while drying, depending on your hair texture.

Don't trim straight across. Instead, divide bangs into small sections; twist each one, then pull it out from your brow. Hold scissors vertically; make notches with little snips. Let bangs fall, then gauge results. Repeat until you reach the desired length.
