How to Style Pinned Back Bangs

Pin backed bangs1As the weather heats up, we are on the look out for cute hair styles that are heat proof! Today Katie is showing off a great styling solution for gals with bangs. This is a great option in case you’ve just had a day at the lake and your hair hasn’t had the chance to dry all the way, or if you are planning a hiking adventure and want to keep your bangs out of your face.Twisted bangs steps

1. Gather a section of hair in the front.

2. Begin back-combing or teasing from behind.

This can give your hair more volume but also help keep loose strands in place.

3. Once the section is teased, wrap a small pony tail holder around the hair.

4. Divide into two sections and pull tight.

5. Gently pull or tug at the front of the hair to create more volume and a smooth “bump.”

6. Curl the ends of hair towards the face to finish the look.Pin backed bangs3Katie suggests: Brushing through the curls to give them a smoother/wavier look. Hair spray will help keep this look in place throughout the day. Sweeten this look by adding a small bow or vintage hair clip.

  • Hi to all, how is the whole thing, I think every one is getting more from this web page.

  • Cute and Easy…my favorite way to go…no muss no fuss. I like it.

  • Great idea! I have been looking for another idea for styling my long hair and this is perfect.

  • I love this hairstyle, I am definitely going to try this out very soon!

  • Great tips, and your model is too cute! 😉

  • Truly adorable. It’s funny cause I made the decision to cut my bangs (after I spent so much time trying to grow them out)! Now I always bobby pin them back till they grow again. However, this is a cute, fun alternative to the bobby pins. 🙂

    Love your blog!


  • How funny that I was just pinning my bangs back today and suddenly came across this post now, haha. Well then, I shall be adding some curls to my hair now to make this look… I wish I had some vintage bows though!

  • SO CUTE! Will definettly try! Thanks so much for sharing!

    P.S. You are SO cute Katie!

  • It’s great to have an option for my bangs ! I’m growing them for ages it seems, but in reality only for 5 months !

    I’ve been wearing bangs for all my life and I feel really naked with my forehead exposed.

    I thought about cutting my bangs again but I will give this easy hair do a try.

    I just wanted to say : Thanks Katie 🙂

  • Love it,
    I think everything she do in her hair will be great, her hair itself is amazing

  • BEAUTIFUL! I love this!

  • It’s one of my favorite styles also. But only for a cool night. I have a ton of thick hair and when its really hot, I have to get my hair off my neck. I’ve been posing lots of braided up do’s lately. Thanks for sharing.

  • Wicked! Definitely going to take advantage of this idea since it’s getting warm!

  • This could well be my upcoming wedding party hairdo!!



  • What a cute style! This is perfect for me, as I’m growing out my bangs and they’re driving me crazy 🙂

  • Great…just what I needed! I have very curly hair and made the mistake (many times) of getting bangs, only to have to pin them back cause they curl like crazy. I love this unique way of pinning them back and it’ll be easier for me because that curl is already in place with no extra work!

  • Katie – I love your hair colour!
    Not sure I am brave enough to go red, but I am trying this – love your hair tutorials ♥

  • My bangs are at that tricky stage where they just do what they want and don’t listen to me, but this is the perfect solution for that. I love it

  • geeeez, she’s gorgeous. great tutorial!

  • Very very sweet! I love this!

  • thanks for this. I have bangs right now and SoCal weather is PMSing from hot to cold to hot again so my bangs go crazy. Awesome tip 🙂

  • So cute! Such a great idea. I always feel frumpy when I pin my bangs but this looks lovely! Thanks for sharing.

  • I love Katie’s hair! So adorable, I’m a brunet and some times I wished I had red hair. Absolutely adorable. Love the black bow! <3

  • Very cute! I’m going to try this. Thank you.

  • I am definitely saving this link for when I have bangs again.It’s such a struggle to make them look good pinned back!

  • Perfect! Love! My go-to style, when I was finally growing out my bangs, was to side part my hair and then twist the bangs (plus a little extra hair) and bobby pin it over to the side. It was perfect and helped hold some volume too!

  • Love this idea! i have a black gosgrain bow headband that I’ve had difficulty wearing ever since i cut my hair shoulder length (like Sucre) but I could totally see this!
    Thanks for the idea,
