Top sock bun
Show off your cute bangs with an even cuter hairstyle—a sock bun set on top. A sock bun is just a cuter version of a classic top knot and looks oh-so chic. You can also rock a regular wrapped top knot and it will look equally pretty. Sport this hairdo with baby bangs, choppy bangs or blunt bangs and. This will work well for medium length hair and really long hair.
To get this look, brush your hair. Leaving your bangs, pull your hair in a high ponytail and add an elastic band to secure. It should sit on the crown of your head. Now get a bun donut and slip over your ponytail. Starting from the end of the ponytail, wrap the hair on the donut and roll it up towards the hair tie covering it with the hair. Once it reaches the point of hair tie, tuck the loose ends and secure the bun with some U pins. Finish with some hairspray.
If you have short or shoulder length hair, this hairstyle is your best bet.

It is a casual hairstyle that you can rock on a weekend brunch or a movie night with your girls. Plus, this back-to-school hairstyle flatters all face shapes and is pretty easy to achieve.
Brush your hair and straighten your bangs using a straightening iron. Take the hair from the crown and make a high messy ponytail for yourself. Secure with an elastic hair tie and pull out some strands from the crown for the messy look. Let your bangs fall at front covering your forehead and brush rest of your hair. Style rest of the hair in soft waves and spritz hairspray to finish the look.
Bouffant with curtain bangs

This dramatic hairstyle is perfect to rock at a glam event or a party where all you need is to kill ’em with your looks. Get this exact bangs hairstyle following these simple steps.
Begin with straight hair. Create a centre parting and let your bangs fall aside on both sides. Divide the rest of your hair horizontally in two parts. Take the upper part and tease small sections from it by backcombing and using hairspray. This will create volume and a poufy front. Once you have teased you hair, hold the section, twist it once and pushing it a little towards the front, secure with bobby pins. Brush your hair and finish the look with a mist of hairspray to add some shine.
If you thought you can’t pull off a classy and fancy hairdo with bangs, think again!

Start with clean and straight hair. Take a section from the side and braid it in a regular three-strand braid. Now take the braid to the opposite side in such a way that it looks like a hairband and pin it behind the ear. Make a low ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Next, divide your ponytail hair into two parts and twist both sections. Intertwine them and wrap them into a low placed bun. Secure the bun with bobby pins and spritz hairspray to keep it in place. Pull some hair from the sides of the bangs for face framing flicks. And, voila! You’ve got yourself a stunning ‘do.

For those rushed summer mornings, this is a perfect summer hairdo to sport. And, it goes with any and every kind of bangs and can be worked on every hair length.

Brush your bangs to the front and create a centre parting. You can style the rest of your hair in curls or keep them straight, whatever you feel like. Take a silk summer scarf and fold it to make it sleek. Hold its edges and tie the scarf on the side front of your head, from under your neck. Tie it in a neat knot and tuck hair flyways. Brush your hair once again to set them. Spray hairspray, if needed.

This hairstyle perfectly complements your messy looking bangs and makes for a cool and casual hairdo that ups your hair game a notch higher. Wear this to work or gym (yes, it is that versatile)!
Start by using a texturising hairspray on your hair to give it some volume and texture. Take the upper section of your hair from above the ears and pull it into a ponytail. Secure the ponytail with a hair tie. Wrap the ponytail hair in a messy bun and secure with bobby pins. Pull some hair strands and run your fingers through your bangs to brush them in a messy way. Brush the rest of your hair to finish the look, and you’re done!
