Bangs are one of those hairstyles that always seem like a good idea. They look so effortless and cool on other people, but when you finally take the plunge and add fringe to your look, you realize how high maintenance they can often be. 

One of the trickiest things about bangs is that you can go to bed with perfect fringe and wake up the next morning to a bushy, disheveled mess or a major cowlick. There are, however, a few tricks that will help keep your bangs looking groomed even after a night’s sleep. Read on for our top tips and product must-haves. 


How to Prep Your Bangs Before Bed 

STEP 1:

Brush out bangs with a comb or paddle brush to remove any product that might be lingering from the day. 

STEP 2: 

Spritz your bangs with a dry shampoo like the Garnier Invisible Dry Shampoo to absorb any excess oil that may accumulate throughout the night.

STEP 3:

Wrap your bangs in a large- or medium-sized hair roller (depending on the length of your bangs) and make sure it’s secure enough to stay in place while you sleep. This will help keep the shape of your bangs intact and prevent cowlicks. If you have side bangs or sweeping bangs, just sweep your fringe to the side and secure it with a bobby pin. Make sure your bangs are pinned at the ends to avoid an odd dent in your bangs when you wake up.

How to Style Your Bangs in the Morning 

STEP 1:

Take out your curler or bobby pin and brush out you're bangs with a comb or paddle brush. If they're looking a little too rounded, don’t worry, they’ll loosen up throughout the day. 

STEP 2:

If your bangs are still looking disheveled — and not in an effortless, cool-girl way — simply spritz a little water on them and blow them dry using a small, round brush. Finally, lightly spritz them with flexible-hold hairspray (we love the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray) to help maintain the shape throughout the day.
