There's no question a great set of bangs can drastically transform your look. But don't get stuck in a bang rut! Switch up your look by pinning bangs back to open up your face or casually swipe to the side to create a softer look.
To pin back bangs, spritz a medium hold styling spray throughout damp hair and blow dry as usual, Boton says (she loves Bumble and bumble's Styling Lotion, $24). Then, just blow dry as usual, separating hair down the middle so bangs are equal length. Tuck each section of bangs underneath your hair and secure with a bobby pin. Want a softer, more side-swept look? "They key is to get bangs to lay flat, not flip under," Boton says. She recommends parting hair on the side and brushing bangs downward with a flat brush as you blow dry. "Point your dryer downwards and dry in the direction you want the bangs to sweep."
