You’ve probably noticed that bangs have made a total comeback – it feels like everyone is getting them and they look great! Even though bangs add some serious style, getting tired of them after a while is completely normal. How many times have you heard a girlfriend complain about trying to grow their bangs out or even said it yourself? Here’s some great tips for growing out bangs that will make it much easier (and a lot more chic).
Great Tips for Growing Out Bangs
- Accessorize. There’s no time like the present to add some bobby pins or a new headband to your look. Push those awkward bangs off your face or pin a few back. You’ll feel so much better.
- Color. When you get to that awkward stage of growing out your locks, a little color can go a long way. Ask your stylist to add color to the tips of your bangs – it’ll draw the eye to the ends, making your bangs appear longer.
- Style. When your bangs get long enough to meet your eyebrows, it’s definitely time to add a little product. Control the flyaways and weigh them down with pomade or gel.
- Cut. Adding style to bangs while they’re growing is super important! A little trim here and there will keep them angled and out of your eyes.
Have you recently tried to grow out bangs? Got any good advice?

The evil eye is having a serious moment right now and I can’t wait to wear my new bracelets from Liza Schwartz. She is a fabulous Miami-based jewelry and accessories designer with celeb clients like Russell Simmons and Giada De Laurentiis. Her work is inspired by her European travels and the “melting pot of cultures” in South Beach, which I LOVE.
Liza was so sweet to send me a few of her pieces of Mother’s Day and I just had to share. She offers so many chic designs at every price range that I can’t think of a better gift idea! Make sure to check out www.lizaschwartz.com for her collection. xox

I’m talking parenting hacks, crafting hacks and DIY hacks. They’re shortcuts or alternatives that are all about saving time and money (and who doesn’t love that?).
So the next time you break you favorite blush and don’t know what to do, read this list of beauty hacks every women needs to know.
10 Beauty Hacks Every Woman Needs to Know
- Double up your makeup! Lipstick can work as a creme blush, creme eyeshadow or even highlight if it has some shimmer
- Don’t have any eye base? Pat foundation on your lids
- A kabuki is really the only brush you might need – blush, bronzer, face powder are covered
