Quick Tip: Flat Ironing your Bang/Side Bang

Featured image

Okay if you’re anything like me, you don’t want your bangs (or side bang) whip straight. WHY YOU MAY ASK? Because if you do that, they just hang there off your head. Like, in your eyes, with no shape. And when you try to sweep them to the side you can’t because they’re so straight they just can’t be tamed. They are out of control.

Are you in this position? Because if you are, HAVE I GOT A TRICK FOR YOU (Even if you don’t have this “problem”, you should absolutely still give this a try. It’s life changing).

Okay put your listening eyes on my friends and trust me: straighten your bang before your flat iron heats up all the way.

No, I’m not crazy, this is golden advice. It makes your bang straight but also moveable. It leaves a nice texture and a natural movement that you cannot achieve with really high temperatures. For example, I own a Rusk flat iron (and btw I’m 1000% in love with it), and I flat iron my hair on 200°F. I start to straighten my bang when my iron is at 72°F.  (I know that’s a little precise, but trust me, it’s the sweet spot)

Side note:  I straighten my bang in two sections and this also improves the overall look.  It gives it dimension.  I also wear my bang to the right, but when I straighten it, I straighten it to the left to give it more bounce

Seriously, give this a go. Leave me a comment if you have any advice of your own, or have any questions!  Let me know what kind of flat iron you use and what temperatures you prefer to work with!

Thanks for reading!
