Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

I have bangs that I'm trying to grow out. How can I wear them as they grow out?
If you aren't able to comb your bangs into the rest of your hair the next time you wash and comb it, here are a few ideas for what to do with them as they grow out:

The first idea might be not really hiding them at all. For example, I cut a bit of the hair around my face to chin length, and when it bugs me, I just comb it into the rest of my hair. A few tendrils pop out, but I like the look of having a few curls around my face. Maybe that could work for you?

You could also sweep your bangs to one side with a side part, and pin them to the side loosely with a pretty clip. This is a really lovely and sophisticated look. You can check out some of these sitesfor some really pretty hair jewels.

Or, you can put in a cute barrette on each side to keep your bangs back.

You can also pull your bangs directly off your face and clip them back, at the top of your head. If you push them forward slightly so they aren't pressed against the top of your head, you can add a bit of lovely height to your hairline.

If your bangs are curling up tighter than the rest of your hair (because they are shorter than the rest of your hair), you could wet them at night (and add a bit of conditioner to keep them from fuzzing) and clip them back on either side so they can dry overnight to stretch out. In the morning you should have looser curls that will make the bangs hang a bit longer. but they will hang down instead of curl up. This is a way to wear them a little less curly, without the damage from flat ironing to do the same thing.

I hope some of these ideas work!
