Your hair looks fantastic. I like your bangs though, it creates a soft look I think (we say fringe in the UK, it took me a while to realise what people were on about)

It looks like a great start! My suggestion would be that instead of using one barrette at the top of your hair, instead use smaller clips/bobby pins to clip sections of your hair more on the sides rather than on top of your head. I think it will make the transition between the bangs/rest of your hair less drastic if it isn’t pulled all the way back to the top of your head.

I personally like the bang too. If you are dead set on doing something different with them just try adding a big more of a curl to them at the end. Just to make them flow more with the back of your hair.

I think that you might need more bangs. It seems like all your bangs are coming from the center of your hairline — could you get a haircut and have them add more bangs further down on your temple? I don’t know if that’s how people cut bangs at all, just a suggestion!

Love the bangs, although maybe you should think about maybe leaving a few pieces down on the sides and just curl them lightly, or not pulling your hair back so tightly ontop. I think it would hide the so called “bald spot” you don’t actually have! 😛 I think if you just curled it all then pulled a few strands back and pinned them underneath the rest of your hair on the sides it would look stunning! (That was it’s not always in your face either!)


Good luck!

@amanda_p:  I think you are on to something.

Or, if you are worried about the separation between the two, maybe you can bobby pin the bangs a little further towards the rest of your hair to close the gap? I think your hair looks lovely, but I understand you want everything to be perfect on the day of.

You just have it all flipping the same way. Keep the front section of your bangs the way they are then take a flat iron and straighten the side part down along your face and blend them together. I have a bit more bangs then you but they always make the same shape as you have going on in this pic, I always need to separate out the section that should be laying straight on the side of my face and flat iron it down there. Then it should blend in to a gradual slope with a nice straight line parallel to your face at the end of the bangs.

I think you may need to have some texturing done on the ends of the bangs a bit.  And I would LIGHTLY back comb them at the root so that you can direct where they lay.  Product in this instance will definitely help.


But, they do look thick enough to me.

BTW-Do you color your hair?
