What you'll need to re-create this look:

  • Clip-in hair extensions (optional)
  • Small flat brush
  • Blow dryer
  • Straightener

1. Clip in your hair extensions for additional length and volume. Jenny is wearing her 160g Chestnut Brown Luxy Hair extensions in this video. Not quite sure how to clip in your extensions? Watch our helpful tutorial here - we'll walk you through it. 

2. Once you have your extensions clipped in, we'll start focusing on creating those straight bangs. Use a small flat brush and blow dryer and gently blow dry your bangs while brushing through them to ensure they maintain their form. We recommend to blow dry them to the right first, and then to the left, as this will help ensure there isn't too much body or bend in the bangs. 

3. To achieve that long and sleek look, we recommend to grab your straightener and run it through your hair to finalize the look.

      Side Swept Bangs

      Make note, ladies: side swept bangs are the perfect go-to look when your bangs are a little less cooperative.

      What you'll need to re-create this look:

      • Small flat brush
      • Blow dryer
      • Curler
      • Texturizing spray

      1. Part your bangs to the side and brush through them while running a blow dryer about an arms length away - this will help ensure the hair stays in place and will eliminate any tendencies for it to sloop over in the wrong direction.

      2. Run a curler loosely through your hair to help create that effortless yet texturized look, and finish off with a texturizing spray.

      3. Run your hands through your hair to loosen up any tight curls and scrunch up chunks of hair to really create that loose and effortless hair style. 

        Long Bangs

        Don't have time for a trim, or in the midst of growing out your bangs? Surprisingly enough, long bangs make for a great centre part look.

        • Blow dryer

          Two Strand Twist

          What you'll need to re-create this look:

          • Hairspray
          • Bobby pin

          1. Prep your hair by hair-spraying your bangs back and away from your face. This will help ensure the hair sticks more easily together and eliminates any fly-aways.

          2. Begin your twist a little farther to the right of your head to get longer sections. This will help smaller pieces stay secure. Continue to twist away from your face to your desired endpoint.

          3. Secure the end of your twist with a bobby pin.
