Time Drain: Bangs

You shouldn’t have to fight them every morning—or every time the wind blows. “Not everyone is cut out for bangs,” says Labrecque. If you have bouncy curls, then a wispy fringe may be an impossibility for you.

Speedy Solution

For everyone else, the key to maintaining your bangs and your sanity is to ask the stylist to work with your natural texture and part, says Garrison. If you have a cowlick, your bangs will need to be thick and heavy
enough to overcome it. If you have coarse or wavy hair, ask the stylist to cut your bangs on an angle—shorter over one eye and longer over the other. This style means they won’t have to lie perfectly flat. If your hair is completely straight, don’t try to fight what nature gave you with a side-swept part, says Alan Tosler, a co-owner of the Tosler Davis salon, in New York City: “Go with short, straight bangs that just graze the eyebrows.”
