Bangs and what to do with them


From time to time I love to get bangs. It's a nice change and refreshes my look and when you have long, thick hair like I do you need a bit of something going on around your face or the hair will swallow it. Not literary, of course, but some type of shape or frame is necessary to keep it look fresh and not boring. What I like to do is to cut them and then to leave them grow. This way I have different length of bangs and when I think they are long enough (usually I let them hit the length just above my chin) I maintain that length for some time and then I cut them again. I know this may seem weird or confusing to all of you who don't do it, but that's the way I like to play around with bangs. When I was couple years  younger and didn't do this, I was always unhappy with the way my huge hair was completely swallowing my face making my features less prominent. On one occasion I ended up cutting my whole hair to the length of just few inches because I thought that was the only way to get a stylish haircut. So now I get bangs to avoid incidents like that and to have some fun with my hair. Over the years I've learnt a couple of tricks that may help you if you are struggling with your bangs or planning to cut them.

Side swept is the way to go Deciding on the type of the bangs you want to get is, of course, entirely up to you, but to me there are no bangs prettier than side swept bangs.

Find a hairdresser you trust Although all of us who wear bangs cut them ourselves on one, two or more occasions (more about that in the next tip) the real way to go is to find a good hairdresser who knows how to style bangs and who will cut them the way you want them. Bare in mind that sometimes you'll probably end up with the shape of bangs you didn't want. In those cases don't panic and let it go, they will grow out eventually and next time you go to someone who will understand what you meant.

Don't cut them yourself! This is crucial, be disciplined and wait until your next salon visit. Most of the hairdressers will cut your bangs for free between haircuts, so don't be lazy and have them cut.

Learn how to handle them It takes time until you realize how to style your new bangs. I recommend blow drying them with a round brush. Keep practicing and you'll learn how to do it perfectly.

Wash your bangs everyday I know a lot of people like to use dry shampoo or to just let the bangs be without any washing, but it can break you out (especially if you have oily skin) or look messy. The best thing to do is to wash them in the sink every morning.

If everything else fails you can always put them up Even when you have bangs wearing them is not the only option. Use a hair clip or bobby pin to clip them on the side, tease them and put them up and secure with bobby pins, or, when they are long enough, brush them on the side and secure with hairspray.



S vremena na vreme volim da ošišam šiške. Lepa je promena i osveži mi izgled, kada imate dugu gustu kosu kao ja, potrebno vam je da se nešto ''događa'' oko lica ili će ga kosa progutati. Ne bukvalno, naravno, ali neka vrsta oblika ili rama oko lica je neophodna da bi cela frizura izgledala sveže i da ne bi bila dosadna. Ono što ja volim da uradim je da ih ošišam i onda pustim da rastu. Na taj način imam različite dužine šiški i kad mislim da su dovoljno dugačke (obično ih pustim do brade) održavam tu dužinu neko vreme i onda ih ponovo ošišam. Znam da ovo možda zvuči čudno i zbunjujuće onima koji to ne rade, ali to je način na koji ja volim da se ''igram'' sa šiškama. Kada sam bila nešto mlađa i nisam ovo praktikovala uvek sam bila nesrećna zbog načina na koji je moja ogromna kosa gutala moje lice zbog čega su mi crte lica bile manje izražene. Jednom sam se ošišala na dužinu od svega nekoliko centimetara jer sam mislila da je to jedini način da imam frizuru. Tako da sada ošišam šiške da bih izbegla takve incidente i da bih se malo zabavila sa kosom. Tokom godina sam naučila nekoliko trikova koji će vam pomoći ako se borite sa šiškama ili planirate da ih ošišate.

Šiške na stranu su pravi izbor Odluka oko tipa šiški koji želite je, naravno, samo na vama, ali meni su najlepše šiške one na stranu.

Pronađite frizera kome verujete Iako smo svi mi šiške ošišali sami jednom, dvaput ili više puta (opširnije o tome u sledećem savetu) ispravna stvar je da pronađete dobrog frizera koji zna da šiša šiške i koji će ih ošišati onako kako vi želite. Imajte na umu da ponekada nećete biti zadovoljni oblikom šiški nakon šišanja. U tom slučaju ne paničite, one će da porastu kad tad, a sledećeg puta idite kod nekoga ko će razumeti šta želite.

Nemojte sami da ih kratite! Ovo je ključno, budite disciplinovani i čekajte do sledećeg odlaska u salon. Većina frizera će vam besplatno skratiti šiške između šišanja, pa nemojte da budete lenji nego idite kod frizera.

Naučite kako da ih savladate Potrebno je vreme dok ne shvatite kako da ih isfenirate i sredite. Najbolje je da ih fenirate okruglom četkom. Vežbajte dok ne naučite kako da to savršeno uradite.

Perite ih svakog dana Znam da dosta ljudi voli da koristi suvi šampon ili samo da ostavi šiške na miru bez pranja, ali tako koža može ozbiljno da vam bukne (posebno ako imate masnu kožu), a i izgleda neuredno. Najbolje je da ih operete u lavabou svakog dana.

Ako sve drugo omane, uvek možete da ih podignete Čak i kad imate šiške njihovo nošenje nije jedina opcija. Zakačite ih sa strane šnalom ili ukosnicom, natapirajte ih pa ih podignite i pričvrstite ukosnicama, ili, ako su dovoljno duge, očešljajte na stranu i fiksirajte lakom za kosu.

  1. Skoro pa cijeli život nosim šiške i da budem iskrena najsretnija sam kad ih sama odrežem :) Nemam baš najljepša iskustva s frizerkama tako da se ubuduće planiram i šišati sama... Inače, super savjeti :)

    1. Ti izgleda imaš osećaj za to pa si uspela da pronađeš način da ih sama ošišaš. :D Ja kad god sam sama probala to su ispale neke debele šiške koje ni na šta ne liče. Ali slažem se da frizerke isto znaju nekad da te upropaste.
