To really turn up the style notch, she convinced me to say yes to bangs – and now I have more of a current, fashion forward look that I just LOVE! I really enjoy having bangs again because they come to my rescue whenever I don’t have the time to style my hair. I just put it back into a messy knot, pony, or braid – and go! Bangs are great for pulling together any look fast because they give the appearance of a more stylish hairstyle. To sport your best-looking fringe daily, there always comes a little bit of daily maintenance to refresh your bangs. Vanessa made sure to show me one of her best tricks using a plastic hair comb.
The basic steps of this easy technique involve going side to side with a comb and using a round brush for finish. Blow dry bangs flat with a comb, over to one side. Quickly repeat to the other side. Repeat reversing and drying the sides until bangs are about 80% dry. Then take a round brush and smooth out the front by pulling the hair straight down towards the nose.
After working a straight blow out into my hair, Vanessa detailed the beautiful cut even more with a flat iron. It always feels like a treat when I get my hair flat ironed because I never do this at home! At the salon, the extra steps of precision that a stylist takes makes it ultra sleek and silky. Vanessa used Elixir Ultime Creme by Kérastase to smooth out the hair while protecting against heat, plus Cristal Sculpt serum for a lasting shield of softness and a blast of mirror-like shine.
