Growing out your bangs? I am also. It’s not the funnest time in the hair world, as there are many awkward stages to it.

What to do with this little section of hair? It can’t tuck behind your ears yet. It might not part evenly on your head. Or it might be in your eyes all the time (SO annoying!).

Seven Easy Ways to Style Your Annoying Bangs!

Here are seven easy hair styling ideas for growing out your bangs in this awkward time in life. Yes, even as an adult there are still awkward times. 🙂

Twisted Rope Braid

1. Twisted Rope Braid – this one is super, super easy! Take two strands of hair and twist together! The most important thing to remember is to take tiny sections of hair to twist. If you have trouble grabbing small sections, use the pointed end of a styling comb.

All of the pretty bobby pins shown in this post are from Lilla Rose. I have really slippery hair but these are very strong and they hold my hair in place all day.

2. Dutch Hair Braid – To get the evenly parted look, part your hair all the way down to your ear and pull it back. That way you are not grabbing a bunch of unwanted hair while braiding. Again, you need small sections of hair to create this look.

3. Crown Braid – only add hair to the front section instead of front and back like a traditional french braid.

Hold hair tightly as you braid, to keep it from twisting.

Add a mini or x-small flexi clip to secure the back of your crown braid!

Add a mini or x-small flexi clip to secure your braids together! There are lots of different styles of flexi clips available in various colors. The clip shown above is a mini.

Pull your bangs straight back, with a little volume.

4. Straight Back – add some teasing/backcombing to the bangs to keep them from parting or going flat.

Secure your bangs with a few bobby pins, criss crossing them to stay in place better.

5. To the side – I twisted the bangs under, just slightly to keep the ends from poking out all together under the pin.

6. Rope Twist Headband – Part hair from the top of the ears on both sides and secure the back of the hair out of the way.

Starting above one ear, take a small section and divide into two parts. Twist the lower section behind the higher section and add a small piece of hair. continue to wrap under, adding small sections each time.

 If you choose to wrap over,  the “twist” will face forward. I wrapped behind so that the twist was hidden. Once you have reached the other ear, continue to twist the hair and secure it under the hair, at the back of the neck.

7. Headband – This is a super easy way to pull your hair back! Use a Lilla Rose headband for a lovely, feminine look. I love using these headbands as they have stretchy elastic that goes under your hair, and I never get headaches while wearing these!

  1. Caroline, you are so pretty!!! and, your hair is beautiful…absolutely gorgeous. Praying for an easy delivery and a healthy baby for you 🙂

  2. Thank you for posting these great ideas! I’m trying not only to grow out bangs, but a whole short, layered cut. 😛 I do have a nice flexi-clip (the smallest) – looks good! 🙂
    The braided crown is a bit too “little girlish” for my taste (I’m 42 years old..) – but I will try the other options! 🙂

  3. You are talented! I have no idea how to do all those ropes and french braids! lol! Pulled back or to the side with bobby pins is my go-to style for church. Then I curl the ends under. My daughter’s hair is almost always in a ponytail. I don’t think she’d have the patience for me to fix her hair even if I knew how, though! I’d love to do headbands, but can’t get them to work for me. Either they hurt my head, or they fall off! I’ve tried stretchy ones, but they slide back and off my head…do the Lilla Rose ones do that?

  4. What a fun post! I have naturally curly (read: unruly!) hair and look forward to trying out some of your neat ideas. My daughter just recently got the cutest cut and it includes side swept bangs (which I can’t figure out how to do properly) so perhaps she’ll grown them out again and we’ll use your ideas for styling in the meantime. Thanks for sharing.
