Here’s me at the beginning of the day. 

 

 

And this is at the end. Honestly, my bangs kind of started clumping together, but I didn’t mind that much, since they were down for our portraits, and that’s what I was most concerned about. I’ve found that they clump the most when I have a greasy forehead, so I washed my hair and face the night before and then washed my face in the morning with an oil-free face wash, and my forehead was set for the rest of the day. 

 

ETA: To add on to that, I would just keep something around like a tissue if you get warm and need to blot, and maybe a comb handy so that if they start to clump due to wind or just all the movement that comes with being a bride, you can brush them out, especially right before walking down the aisle or entering the reception hall or during photos.

Not married yet, but I’ve had blunt bangs for a lonnnnng time too.  Here’s my tips:

-Wash your hair your wedding day, even if the hairdresser says not to.  They can put product in there and mess it up again.

– For the greasy forehead (I feel your pain on that). Make sure your skin is clean, moisturize with a serum and then use a good primer under your makeup.  Test them before your wedding day.  I would suggest hourglass veil mineral primer.  It’s pricey, but you can get a free sample from sephora to see if you like it.  Finish with urban decay de-slick setting spray.

-Use a spray moose in your bangs before you blow dry.  It adds texture and product in the bangs and hair roots keeps it from getting oily.  Then, when dry…hairspray your bangs BEFORE you use heat to style them.  Then after, spray again.

-If all else fails, have some dry shampoo handy.  Lift your bangs and hit them from underneath with the dry shampoo.  Then comb them through.  No more greasy bangs!

😊

I’m wearing my blunt bangs for my wedding in 2 weeks, and we’re getting married in Italy, so it will be very hot!  I’ve noticed that as I’ve switched to washing my hair every 2-3 days, my hair has been better including my bangs which would be greasy by the end of the day. I would suggest starting to transition to washing your hair less, if you can manage it.  I don’t disagree with the bee who said to wash your hair the day off and depending how hot and gross it is, I might do it. We are taking engagement photos the night before the wedding, for which I plan to wash my hair, and before I go to bed, I plan on using dry shampoo. I actually make my own with cornstarch and some cocoa powder (I’m a brunette) and I prefer it to the commercial onces I’ve tried. I find putting it on a night really helps with the next day.  I’ll bring a comb and I like the idea of blotting papers for my forehead too!

nt0129 :  Yes, smelling like chocolate is always a good thing! I haven’t tried the cocoa powder on it’s own, but the cornstartch does seem to help!  The other thing I would say is paying attantion to my skin care routine; I’ve found a way of eating that my skin/body really responds to and have really noticed how clear my skin is and how less oily my forehead is.  I think it’s all part-and-parcel!
