Nothing is more transformative than the edge of power – but know How to style your bangs is just as important as finding the right hairstyle. “People are afraid of the promise of bangs, but it’s really just Minutes,” Behind Pro player Mark Townsend insists that Dakota Johnson is forever obsessed with Verge. “As long as you style bangs, you’re done.” Although, yes, Brigitte Bardot-esque wisps or voluminous Corkscrew curtains are technically easier to maintain, but pros agree that it’s the least amount of effort for the greatest return.

“Bangs can really change your hairstyle and give you a new look,” says Mara Roszak, who created a Françoise Hardy-inspired look for Anne Hathaway earlier this year Side-parted bangs. “Quick and easy changes that feel are often a big change in overall style. They can beautifully define the face, accentuate the eyes and cheekbones.” For Vernon François—he recently provided Amandla Stenberg with ultra-straightforward fringed drapes – endless style possibilities for a set of bangs. “They’re very versatile, from bold, statement and dramatic, to upgrading your overall hairstyle without overpowering it, to tender and romantic,” he explains. Here, three hottest Hollywood hairstylists discuss how to style bangs, from blow-drying techniques to the right products for smart bangs.

While avoiding greasy-looking bangs is an all-around Goal, but those with straight hair usually need to be extra careful. “It’s best to avoid products in them, since bangs are against the face, and the natural oils in the skin and hair usually weigh them down,” explains Roszak. Instead, learn blow-drying techniques while your hair is still wet. For extra volume, Townsend recommends blow-drying hair straight down with a flat brush, like a boar bristle Mason Pearson, then when it’s 65% dry, “brush” bangs with a round brush held vertically. For a tougher, longer-lasting finish, Roszak recommends roughly drying with fingertips. In between washes, consider doing a targeted brushing of bangs only. “Spray on dry shampoo for a quick fix, rather than having to do a full wash and restyle your entire hair,” says François, who considers Redken’s Deep Cleansing Dry Shampoo his go-to.

Ride the wind and waves – embrace what you have of. “Long, wavy bangs that you can air dry for an effortless wash-out look accentuate the effortless waves of this hair texture,” says François, who tends to rely mostly on his Mist Nourishing Water as a styling base or refresher to keep the S wavy pattern. In a similar spirit, Townsend encourages his curly-haired clients to use their fingers instead of a brush and add a feather-light mist of Oribé Aprés Beach Spray to maintain their natural bends, or lean into the ’25s-era curtain bangs use A round brush (held horizontally) or a hot brush sweep bangs down and away from the face, creating a scalloped effect. Or, if you want to fix your hair into a specific wave or bring back your next-day bangs, Roszak says a squirt bottle and flat clips are her secret weapon. “After spraying the bangs a few times, I use a flat clip at the base of the bangs to help them lay flat at the roots,” she explains. “Then I shape them in the direction I want them to sit, usually allowing a little swoop or bend, adding two extra flat clips at the end.”

As a rule of thumb, “The less you process your curls, the more they retain their shape. Good,” François said. To air dry, he recommends waiting until the hair is dry 62% dry , and then twist short curly bangs. Once dry, gently detach sections with a little serum on fingertips. In between washes, he reaches for Kérastase Curl Manifesto Refresh Absolu to rehydrate and re-energize “bangs that need a bounce refresher.” Another tactic is to “use a towel or T-shirt to help keep curls intact and have a beautiful, natural silhouette post-shower,” says Roszak. While there are many different drying techniques to enhance your individual curl pattern, experts agree that diffusers are the holy grail of definition and volume. “If curly bangs need to be blow-dried, I’ll only use the diffuser on the low air setting,” explains Roszak, who recommends moving the hair around with fingertips to lift curls for volume and separation. For maximum curl and lift at the roots, Townsend will use Dyson’s Diffuser Attachment (on the lowest air setting and the highest heat setting) to drape the curl fringe, which he loves because you can control heat and airflow separately , which is the key to hair health with techniques and techniques.

As is the case with curly hair, the less you do with curls and frizzy textures, the better—especially when it comes to lush drapes or cascading fringe. When stepping out of the shower, François recommends patting the coils with a microfiber towel to dry them without disrupting their natural shape and texture, followed by a controlled amount of a rich, lightweight moisturizer like his Styling Cream , to accentuate natural coils and provide extra moisture to ends. Or, “a drop of pomade while giving curly bangs a quick twist with your fingers for simple definition and shine,” he adds. To bring coils back to life between cleansing, a mist from a spray water bottle or leave-in conditioner, along with diffusion if necessary, can help re-strengthen, says Roszak. “To define and eliminate frizzy coils, use a styling oil alone or with a lightweight curl cream, rubbing and twisting excess product into bangs,” she instructs, emphasizing that you don’t want to overload or weigh down hair with too much product.
