Not having bangs is a lot easier, but they are fashionable and versatile and almost every woman gave this haircut a try this season. But once you decided to take the plunge and brush your bangs to the side, the growing out bangs process can be difficult and can make you cringe when you see some intermediary steps. However, there are hair styling options for growing out bangs, starting with a soft side bang, slowly transitioning to a center part, almost-winged look.
Consider these hairstyle ideas for growing out bangs to make your transition both easy and stylish.
Blending Bangs In
The first phase of growing out your bangs is obviously to let them grow! If you can deal with being able to see through your bangs, try this simple hairstyle and wear your fringe down, blended into long layers. The finish to this growing out bangs hairstyle should only appear blunt: you texturize the ends with TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray. However, too much of it will make your layers look heavy.
Side Styled Ponytail
Once your bangs have grown out, turning into a major fringe, they can be smoothly pulled to the side and hidden in a pony. To style your growing out bangs properly, your tresses should be loosely braided to help hold your bangs in place.
Tight Front Braid
A front braid is an ideal hairstyle for growing out bangs as it tucks-in your short hairs. Flyaway hairs are usually an issue for most women, so smooth them with Straight Sexy Hair Smooth & Seal Aerated Anti-Frizz And Shine Spray when you're done styling.
Pinned to the Side
This is one of the easiest ways to get your hair looking chic and off your forehead. To get this hairstyle for your growing bangs, you need to simply pin them to the side with a Jane Tran Hair Accessories Pearl Bobby Pin (or a jeweled clip, such as Rhinestone Bobby Pin, if you're feeling festive) for a pretty, retro style.
A blunt bob or lob is a great cut for mid-length bangs. This hairstyle for growing out bangs is pushed to the side and mingled with a piecey cut.

Styled with Headband
