Fold Over Bang Twist

next
February Julep Box


I’ve gotten a few requests from readers who want to learn a new way to pull their bangs out of their face other than simply sticking a bobby pin in them. 

I always feel like my hair looks less “finished” when I slide a bobby pin in to hide a bad “bang” day. So, the simple act of hiding that bobby pin with a little section of hair can take your style from “my bangs didn’t cooperate today” to “yeah, I did this on purpose”.

Again, you don’t need to have bangs in order to do this style! Experiment with your own hair and see how it works on you!

Now I really really want to cut my hair 😉 just to try this cute look!

This is looks so nice but I have one question. How do I get that particular section of my hair to stop breaking away? The part you pinned back is only long enough to do that on me for maybe 2-3 months a year before it falls off and turns into a “horn”. I stopped straightening it, and try not to apply direct heat when blowdrying, What else can I do?

I have this same problem and this is the area that I’m always trying to hide. It’s hideous looking after I straighten or curl and try to pull back.

Kate- I once saw a video on youtube on how to make a bobby pin kind of disappear….but I still can’t get the hang of it- you push it in against the hair and twist and push so all you see is the little looped end….any ideas/hints on what I’m talking about?

Lauren, this video was pretty much life-changing for me. I have super thick hair and my hair can be held up successfully with one bobby pin that you can’t see. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzJQ88K2QQg

Thanks Kate – what an awesome way to make a bad hair day look great!

My bangs were just not curling nicely this morning, so I ending up pinning them to the top of my head in a quick bump and they still look awful (lol). Oh well, it’s Monday. This looks like it could be a really nice alternative since they’re getting longer, and I’m doing the back and forth debate to cut them again or hope they grow out nicely like yours did. 🙂

This is how I do my hair any time I wear it down! My bangs are in an awkward stage right now so this really helps me look more “put together”!

I normally can’t really follow any of your hair tutorials because our textures differ so much, but I will try this one!!! Thank you! =)

Oh Kate!
I adore this idea… Bad bangs days are the worst… It was especially bad while I was growing out my bangs. But the bobby pin looks so unprofessional for while I am at work.

Great post you deserve some Snappers 🙂

I have been growing out my bangs for a while now and they can’t tuck behind my ears quite yet; I’m definitely trying this out, thanks!

Your skin is perfect! What do you use on your face? I used to never breakout and now I do all the time. Is there a section on your blog where you talk about skincare?

Ugh!!! I can not figure this out! It looks so easy and then I do it and it does not work. I can not get my hair to look the same as yours. It looks fine, a little more twisted and woven than yours, my bangs are back and the bobby pins are hidden so I guess the main goals are achieved. I’ll have to work on it more on another day.

Hi Kate,
I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to handle a “cow lick” in your bangs. Im having a wretched time with mine as I grow them out (not quite tuck behind ear length currently.)

I really like this one. I’m always looking for ideas of what to do with my bangs. Thanks Kate for your many ideas…

I have really fine hair but a LOT of it, so I always need to use multiple bobby pins. Should I put the second one side by side or crossed over to make an X?

I have been stuck doing the same few styles to keep my bangs out of my face. Did this before work, and I love the way it looks (and so simple too). I will use this more often!!

You don’t need short hair to do this style. I have long hair and I absolutely love wearing this in my fringe. This look really suits you, Kate. Absolutely gorgeous.

This look is absolutely adorable and looks so simple, but I can’t get it it to work for me. The problem is in the twisting. My hair is fine and when I try to twist it I use my right hand and then I try to hold it in place with my left so I can use my right to put the bobby pin in….something about this process goes all wrong. And I have tried twisting with my left, but I can’t get that down either. I am going to keep trying though!
