Going out with the girls? Or maybe you’re prepping for your next festival? Either way, this edgy braid hairstyle is sure to turn heads. All you have to do is blow-dry your bangs forward and the hair at the crown of your head backward. (Just remember to spritz on a heat protectant first.) Next, part your hair (not including your bangs) down the middle and Dutch braid a section of hair extending from the apex of your bangs down to the top of your ear on each side of your head. Once you reach your ears, finish your braids using a traditional three-strand weave. Secure each braid with a mini clear elastic and you’re ready to rock the night away! The braided sections will give a pulled-back appearance without taking away from your overall length or style—not to mention it lets your bangs stand center stage.
Hair looking less than perfect? No worries, you can hide your imperfect tresses with this lived-in updo. Simply run a boar bristle brush through dry hair before spritzing it with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo. Proceed to knead your tresses with your fingers before twisting it into a messy bun. Instead of securing your hairstyle with a hair tie, allow it to look a little more undone with just a few bobby pins holding it in place. To finish off this hairstyle, brush your bangs forward and piece them apart in the middle.
Another lived-in hairstyle, this look can be achieved on clean or second-day hair. Simply use a hair texturizing pomade, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty, to create a piecey, messy look throughout your mane. Start with a little bit of product and add more as desired. Don’t forget to add some texture to your bangs as well! You can sweep them to the side or leave them hanging across your forehead.
A high ponytail can be worn to the gym or the bar—and it looks particularly stunning when accompanied by bangs. Simply throw your hair into a high pony and leave your bangs out to create this hairstyle.
You’ve seen them on the hippest models and the most stylish girls walking down the street. These sleek, pinned back bangs are all about playing up the accessories you use as opposed to your actual bangs. To get the look, apply a dollop of hair cream to damp hair before letting it air dry. Once it’s dry, create a side part and smooth your bangs down before securing them in place with the accessories of your choice. We’re particularly in love with the way barrettes and rose gold bobby pins tie this look together—but in the end, the choice is yours. Remember that the key to this hairstyle is not to brush your bangs back like they’re going behind your ear but straight down, as they would normally lay if parted to the side regularly. The accessories will keep them pinned together so your killer hairstyle doesn’t piece apart throughout the day.

Look absolutely royal with this super-simple hairstyle. All you have to do is part your hair down the middle behind your bangs and create a Dutch braid on each side, starting at your part and moving toward your ear.

From there, pull the braid up over your head and pin one behind the other, making sure to conceal the ends for a totally put-together style. Finish with a spritz of hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, and your crown will sit beautifully atop your head all day long.
