There comes a time in everyone's life where they want bangs. This decision might be inspired by your favourite celebrity or may be one of the outlets post a breakup, whatever may be the case, it's crossed your mind. The thing with bangs is that if you get it right, you can totally nail the look-however, there is room for error if you don't style it right. Bangs or fringes are a great way to frame your face, soften your features, or even hide that big forehead you've not been very fond of. All this while, we've been conditioned to believe that bangs or fringes are meant for straight and long hair. But guess what? Anyone and everyone can wear them. From short to long, curly to straight, it's meant for all. Taking the plunge, getting that front chop, and sporting those bangs can be daunting. If you get them right, however, you won't regret your decision. We've curated 3 ways in which you can wear your bangs-they're all looks inspired by stylish celebrities, so the bar is high (don't worry).

#1 - Messy Front Fringe

Short hair and messy wavy bangs go hand-in-hand, and you shouldn't assume otherwise. Inspired by Selena Gomez's ruffled mane, here's how you can wear your bangs if you've gone short.

  1. Step 1: Start by applying Livon Damage Protect Serum on your hair. Then section your hair-we're going to first focus on the bottom layer. Divide that section into two equal halves and begin styling.
  2. Step 2: Using curling tongs, create natural waves that curl away from your face. Repeat on each section.
  3. Step 3: Move on to the middle section and repeat.
  4. Step 4: When you reach the top layer, switch to a blow-dryer. Use a paddle brush while you style the top layer of your hair, as you lightly blow dry it on a cold setting.
  5. Step 5: Now on to your fringe-using a roller brush, curl the bangs inwards, and roll the brush towards your face (as you point the blow dryer towards the hair). Repeat twice and hold the brush, so that the hair takes the shape of the roller.
  6. Step 6: Finish off by ruffling and scrunching the hair.

#2 - Long Curtain Bangs

These JLo-inspired long hair with bangs are perfect for an elegant evening or a day out with the girls. It pairs especially well with medium or long hair, that's either straight or slightly wavy.

  1. Step 1: Spray Livon Super Styler Serum on your hair and section it, so that you can style it better.
  2. Step 2: Using a pair of straighteners begin straightening each section. After you've straightened each section, use a fine-toothed-comb to go over it. Repeat for every section, except for your bangs.
  3. Step 3: Centre-part your hair, including your long bangs, and straighten both the left and the right side. When you're straightening your bangs, make sure to shape them outwards, especially when you reach the ends.
  4. Step 4: Use Livon Shake & Spray Serum to keep the strays at bay.

#3 - Dense Long To Short Bangs

Who remembers this classic look that inspired many to take the plunge and get themselves those bangs? This The Devil Wears Prada/Andy inspired hairstyle makes for a great go-to, especially if you're a fringe newbie.

  1. Step 1: Section your damp hair and apply Livon Damage Protect Serum. Start by blow-drying each section-the number of sections is dependent on the length and density of your hair. We recommend starting off by dividing it in bottom, top, and middle sections, and then further dividing each section, as per your hair density.
  2. Step 2: Roughly blow dry each section with a roller brush, ensure that the ends curl inwards. Repeat for all sections.
  3. Step 3: Comb out your bangs and with the roller brush, blow dry it inwards first and then lift it upwards to give it a little volume.
  4. Step 4: Using the end of the fish-tail comb, section out your fringe and a few longer strands from the front of your hair.
  5. Step 5: Now, comb the rest of your hair back and pull it up into a ponytail. Comb out your fringe and let it sit naturally-you can.
