#1 Wet your bangs
The first step is to use a bottle spray to finely mist your bangs with water. Then, massage your scalp and the roots of your bangs to get rid of any predetermined flow direction of your bangs.
#2 Blow dry
Next, blow dry your bangs to get rid of the hair flow habits so you get a fresh foundation to style your hair.
#3 Blow dry hair in three directions
After your bangs are dry, blow dry your hair with heat in three directions. First, comb your hair to one side and blow dry it towards that direction. Then, comb your hair to the opposite side and repeat. Lastly, comb your hair straight down and blow dry.
This trains your bangs to fall straight down your forehead neatly.
#4 Use a hair straightener
Comb your bangs as you straighten the middle section using a hair straightener. Rotate your wrist to curl your bangs towards your forehead to add volume.
#5 Style the sides
Once the middle section is done, you can style the sides of your bangs in small sections to curl towards your temples for a soft look.
#6 Use hair wax
Rub a tiny amount of hair wax between your fingers and run them through your bangs lightly. This gives your hair extra hold so it stays in place even when the wind tries to mess it up.
#7 Use hairspray
Spritz on hairspray on your bangs from the roots to the ends. Make sure to hold the hairspray 30cm away from your hair so you don't apply too much of it.
You can also spray some on your fingers and make final adjustments.
Now, no matter how much you shake your head or sweat, your hair should stay in place and look great all day!
