Blunt Bangs, Wavy Hair
To get the look of stars like Zooey Deschanel and Lea Michele, start by running heat protectant throughout your hair. Blow dry your bangs with a round brush, using smoothing cream if needed. Use a diffuser to dry the rest of your hair. Use a curling iron to curl one-inch sections of the rest of your hair, starting at the bottom. Finish your look with a flexible hold hairspray.
Long, Face-Framing Bangs
To highlight your cheekbones, part your bangs in the middle so they hit right at you eyes. Use a small comb to pull your bangs away from your face while blow-drying to create extra volume. Use a straightener to smooth them out. Pull your wavy hair back into a messy ponytail so it doesn’t interfere with the framing effect. Play up your eyes with some bold eyeliner to complete the look.
