When you get hair extensions, you gain the flexibility you may not have, or want, with your natural hair. You have the freedom to change your hair from long to short and curly to straight with the blink of an eye. If you've weaved in hair extensions and are a fan of side sweeping bangs, there are plenty of ways to keep your bangs of choice with a variety of hairstyles.

Short Spiky Layers

Even with a short cut you can rock out short layers with a side sweeping bang. Part your hair to one side and straighten it with a flat iron. Add a dime-size amount of hair wax to the center of your palm and apply it to your bangs and layers. Piece apart your bangs for a stiff, punk edge that calls for wearing liquid leather pants and a corset top. Add light hold hair spray to keep the spiked hair in place.

Straight Sleek Bob

You don't need straight bangs or a part down the middle when you create a bob. Section enough hair off for your side bang. Decide if your bob will be straight or if you'll bend the ends down under. Either keep your bangs straight, or razor cut the bangs in a diagonal motion for layers, and flat iron into a feathered style. Spray your final look with a light hold weave spray.

Wavy Relaxed Waves

Weave in a full head of wavy hair. Choose the wave style depending on your preference. You'll need to cut your bangs from the weaved-in hair, so consider the wave pattern before your first cut. Not only should you consider the length being reduced because of the curl, but that your bang may not lay as flat as you like. Instead of cutting short layers for a short side sweep at eye level, chop layers with the first cut at the cheek or chin level.

Long Sexy Curls

Use a romance curl weave for long bouncy curls. After being sewn in, paddle brush some of the curls out so they aren't uniform. Part your hair to one side and razor cut long layers in the front for cascading curls. This type of hair can be pincurled for a large bang with plenty of body or smoothed down over the eye for sex appeal. The romance curls allow for wispy bangs that don't require any special styling when cut correctly.
