Fringe instantly adds volume and drama to any cut. With a full fringe -- when a lot of hair is included in your bangs, creating a thick, voluminous look -- you have lots of fabulous ways to play around with it and transform your tresses into an uber-chic hairstyle. It doesn't matter if you feel like putting your hair up or leaving it down -- you can find a really chic, easy style to try.
A smooth, straight style is always sleek and chic. While your strands are still damp, work a bit of smoothing balm (not a lot or you'll end up with greasy locks) through your hair, from root to tip. Blow-dry over your bangs first -- the hair is shorter so it will dry faster than the rest of your hair -- with a round brush, then go over the rest of your hair, too. Flat-iron your hair and finish with a dab of a shine-enhancing serum.
Creating loose waves in your hair gives you a soft, romantic style that looks so divine with a full fringe. Don't add waves into your bangs -- this will only make you look like you got stuck in a time machine or your blow-dryer blew a circuit. No, keep your bangs hair smooth and sleek, then use large hot rollers to add curls around the ends of your hair. Brush over the curls afterward to turn them into waves.
Braids can look a bit immature, but with a full set of bangs braids add a chic, stylish touch. Style your bangs straight across your forehead -- never use a lot of product on your bangs or they'll end up flat and weighed down instead of soft and voluminous -- and divide the rest of your hair into two even sections: one on each side of your head. Braid each section and secure the ends with a small elastic.
If you're rockin' a bold bob cut -- a shag cut works well with this style, too -- a flipped-under look instantly turns you into a chic fashionista. Smooth your hair with a blow dryer, then go over it with a flat iron. As you reach the ends on each section while straightening your strands, curl the hair under slightly to get that flipped-under effect. Don't forget to run a dab of a silicone-based serum over your hair to really bring out the shine and keep your straight style sleek and long-lasting.
