Growing out Bangs

Is anyone else in the process of growing out bangs and finding that bit of hair that is forever falling into your eyes incredibly annoying and unattractive? Well, I've been having problems with it recently, and here is what I've come up with to solve it- hair accessories. They're cute and adds a little something to your usual hair style.

There are the classic bobby pins, like these two Accessorize. These simple yet elegant designs can go with just about any outfit!
Then there are these larger clips from Accesorize and Claires respectively. And remember, they don't always have to be on the side either. Try twisting the bangs on top and clipping it down, with these pretty clips, for a more voluminous look.
For something a little more interesting, there are these skull pins from
Intuition and funky button pins from Urban Outfitters.

Headbands is yet another fabulous way to keep the bangs off your eyes. I especially love these multiple skinny headbanks from Urban Outfitters and Cara.

And of course, there are these scarf-like headbands that are so trendy this season also from Intuition. The circular patterned one on the right is fun and quirky, but I like the simple silk bands with its very elegant and sophisticated colors best!

How do you keep your bangs out?

I got a lovely response to my post on headbands several days ago- apparently, literally everyone likes them.
You should check out the various other headbands in my post, they are lovely!
I personally am not a fan of clips, as someone who recently graduated from university, I don't think I am at the age where I can truly pull them off, maybe if it's the right clip, hehe.

I use the headbands, just to get the hair off my face at work and when its really hotoutside. I don't know about the clips, b/c I feel like a kid with them. I will check them out.

I love scarves and cute hairclips (especially the big and shiny ones from Tarina Tarantino), but headbands with combs attached just don't work very well for me. For some reason, my forehead just doesn't look right when fully exposed. Headbands without combs won't stay on very well.

It's possible to pull off hairclips without looking like a kid. I usually pair my bright and shiny hairclips with more sophisticated pieces (e.g., heels, blazer) to look "grown up" but a bit playful. Otherwise, I think the "classic" ones in the first picture work perfectly well (I have a couple of those that I've worn with suits).

if youre going to use bobby pins..
DONT buy expensive ones. Because they
fall off so easily. One of my friends
goes through a pack at least every 3-4 days (and it's a big pack!) Go with headbands-they don't get lost!

Bobby pins- if you just want to try them out for a while, get cheap ones from Walgreens or someplace; if you don't like the way they look/feel on you, you didn't just waste a bucketfull of cash :3

I bought two scarf like headbands in London at Monzoon. Just love them!

I know it's a bit fashionista trailer trash, but I love to use the silky ribbons off boxes from Tiffany, Fendi and other upscale brands as informal headbands. Wrap, tie, move bow to the back, and you're "designer" on a dime!

I grew out my bangs really long, so they're like choppy chin length layers. But that area in between was ah-noying. If they're long enough just pull your hair back. But those tips you gave were excellent!

i hate growing out my bang... now its finally long enough to be swept back in a bun, im never cutting my bang again! when i was growing my hair, i just used the hairspray (with invisible hold like the orange one from Charles Worthington) to keep my hair in place. but i absolutely adore the chanel-chain headbands you post. so glamorous :) the silk ones are cute too (the plain ones are sophisticated while the patterned ones are so funky!)

yeah i love the variety of hair accessories that are everywhere right now. i don't have bangs, but i do have curly hair that gets incredibly unruly in this humid weather. pins and clips are good for holding back the worst of the weather frizz right by your temples

I think clips are fabulous for anyone no matter what their age. I've always been a big fan of headbands and scarfs to get bangs out of the way.

Hair accessories in general give your look a little punch ;)

I'm growing my bangs out and I just have to live with hair in my eyes. Pins and hairbands make me look about 12. And any type of headscarf make me feel like a cleaning lady + how do you make them stay on? They seem to slip right off my head. (I have fine straight hair = slippery scarves.)

I love those gold Accessorize hair clips! i'm going out shopping now to buy them!

I usually clip mine straight back in kind of a poofy-thing. Although, I also pin it back and then slide my headband over the clip, because otherwise my medium-ish bangs fall down the sides of the headband, which I don't think is very attractive.

When I went through this tragic phase of hair re-growth, I found using some product helps to sweep your bangs accross your forehead and give them some lift. My favorite was the "self control" stick from aveda...makes you smell nice too. Sometimes a head band and clips just don't look right on some women.

Slavetoshopping, I have fine straight hair too, so I use bobby pins on the side of my head (near the ears) to help the scarf stay on. To keep from looking like a cleaning lady, maybe a long, skinny chiffon scarf in a bright color will do.

I recently had a painful experience with bangs so, I have been using many haedbands and styling products. I have found that heads bands work best, and they can go with almost everything. Although, the key is to acessorize wisely. Wear whatever fits your style.

I have been looking for headbands that look like scarfs (because it is uncomfortable to me to wear an actual scarf). I found this site with headbands for pretty cheap (compared to most of what I've seen)...

My bangs are at the awkward stage, and my hair is super thick with layers. I have no idea what to do with it!! I'm trying to grow it out. I think that the headband thing would be the best plan, but i'm not sure if it will look very good because i have a slight widow's peak, not right in the center of my forehead, but a little off to the side. So i dunno if pulling it back is the best plan...
