Growing out bangs can be a challenge, one that many people resolve with an arsenal of bobby pins and headbands. Accessories are a great help for the occasional bad hair day, but it is possible to grow out a fringe without wearing it pinned back for six months. The key is to embrace some interim steps, reshaping your bangs instead of just letting them go wild. Following these steps will gradually blend your bang into the rest of your hair so you’ll feel like you have a real style every step of the way. Click the notes for three simple steps to bang grow-out success. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
