Having thick “fashion bangs” requires a lot of upkeep and some serious face time in the salon, which I don’t always have. In order to maintain the perfect length that borders on shaggy but not quite in my eyes I’ve developed a few shortcuts (ha) that work in case of a bang emergency. (My dear stylist friend, Emma from Cutler, I hope you are not reading the following)
My previous go-to method was to find the lengthiest portion of my bangs, section it off, twist it, then kind of hack at the bottom with cuticle clippers. Repeat with other unruly culprits. Sounds barbaric, I know, but it works quite nicely at maintaining the bedhead look. Now, though, it seems I can pack my cuticle tools away thanks to Bango. Previously only available to night owls watching bad TV at 3 AM, Bango has found its way to Ulta and other commercial beauty outlets. Although it doesn’t completely replace the cut from a trained stylist, Bango is definitely a better option than using a seam ripper to remove rogue hairs. Not that I’ve done that or anything…
