French Braided Bangs
This is one of the best hairstyles for girls with long hair and side-swept bangs who are having a bad hair day or just want their bangs out of the way. All you have to do to achieve this style is part your bangs severely to the side and begin to French braid them at the part toward the other side of your face. Once you’ve reached the opposite side of your face, you’ll simply clip the braid in place back behind your ear, covering the clip with your hair. If you aren’t experienced with French braiding, this hairstyle for side-swept bangs might be a bit difficult to achieve, but watching this video and practicing a bit will help you get the hang of it.
This is one of my favorite hairstyles for girls with long hair and side-swept bangs, because it’s both easy and eye-catching. While hair is wet, add a touch of volumizing mousse, combing it from the roots to the tips. While your hair is wet, part your hair, including your bangs, down the middle. Now you will create a zigzag pattern with your bangs at the part by taking small sections of hair and alternating the sides of the part that you place them on. If you’re having trouble keeping the hair on the zigzag part staying where you put it, use two barrettes to hold the parted hair in place as you go along. You don’t have to get the zigzag pattern perfect; a messy, zigzag part will look just as good.
Once you have your bangs completely zigzag parted, use the barrettes to hold them in place while you blow dry and style the rest of your hair however you like. A few messy curls and an imperfect part can replicate a look similar to what Britney Spears is rocking in the photo. You can then take the barrettes out and let your bangs finish air drying. When they are dry, use a flat iron to iron out both sides of the bangs and spritz them with a touch of hairspray to ensure that the zigzag part stays in place. This is one of the best hairstyles for girls with long hair and side-swept bangs who are looking for something different, and it will give hair plenty of dimension and a little extra volume on top without a lot of work.
This is another of the best hairstyles for girls with long hair and side-swept bangs that want to get them out of the way, and creating a pretty, pinup, pompadour hairstyle is actually pretty easy. First, you’ll want to brush your bangs in front of your face, temporarily holding them in place with a hairclip. Next, pull the rest of your hair back into a ponytail. Unclip your bangs and comb them from the front of your head to the back, securing them at the ends with a small, clear rubber band. Now grab the rubber band and push your bangs forward to create a bump, using three or four bobby pins or a barrette to hold the bump in place. If you like, you can roll and tuck the ends of your bangs up under the bump and bobby pin them down behind it. Now just spritz your pompadour with plenty of hairspray and style the rest of your hair however you like. A high ponytail that’s been curled would look great. You’ve got one of the best hairstyles for girls with long hair and side-swept bangs looking to make a statement.
So whether you want to look edgy, classic or a little bit Bohemian, these hairstyles for girls with side-swept bangs and long hair will help you get a little more “bang” from your side-swept bangs.
