2 PLAY WITH YOUR BANGS.
IF YOU HAVE BLUNT BANGS, try the graphic look of a flatironed fringe. Practise TLC and prep with a straightening product that protects from heat. FLARE’s pick: Alberto Heat Defence Straight & Smooth Smoothing Cream, $5.50.
IF YOU HAVE NO BANGS, fake them by rolling the front section of your hair toward the back of your head, then pinning it into a chignon. Lift the roots first with a vent brush and a blow-dryer. FLARE’s pick: LaCoupe Root Blast Texture & Root Lift Spray, $7.
IF YOU HAVE LAYERED BANGS, pull your locks into a low-slung ponytail and brush your fringe into a side sweep. A touch of gel will keep them in place. FLARE’s pick: Pantene Pro-V Classic Total Control Gel, $6.
