Day Four: Twisted Bangs {30 Days, 30 Ways}

Day Four: Twisted Bangs
Skill To Learn: Twisting and Anchoring
Difficulty: Pretty Darn Easy
Time Commitment: 15 Minutes
What You Need: Two Bobbies

For Day Four of 30 Days, 30 Ways, we’re going to learn the twisted bang.  This is another easy way to pull back cut bangs, and also a creative way to dress up your hairstyle, whether the alternative was wearing it all down or up in a ponytail.  This twist-and-bobby-pin trick literally takes five minutes and all you have to do is style the rest of your hair as you would have.  Voila! 


  1. Begin with a wet head.  Make a side part wherever your hair naturally separates.  That is where we will start.
  2. From  your side part, slice out a section parallel to your bangs, keeping your partings clean.  🙂
  3. Comb that section upwards and begin to twist it toward the back, gradually pulling it tighter toward your temple.
  4. Anchor it there with crossed bobbies
  5. Style the back as usual: straight, curly or in between!  (below is an example of Twisted Bangs styled with straight hair and side-swept bangs left out)

See?  I told you!  This style is super easy, but it will be the springboard for many of the more complex styles in a couple weeks.  So practice getting a straight part and a smooth twist, and if you hit a snag, shoot me your questions in the comment column and I will help you out.  

Have a great day and remember that someone needs a ray of light today that only you can shine.
Make time for inspiration, be yourself without apology and always light your world with goodness!

    You know, I’ve tried to do this with my bangs (which are about the same length as yours), but I think the reason I couldn’t get it to work is because I was trying too hard to get the twist to cover up the part instead of centering it between the part and the forehead. Seeing the top-down photos of the process really helps.

    I like to pull my bangs back on days when I don’t want to shampoo but need to deal with crazy-slept-on-bedhead bangs. 🙂
