Thank you Leia!

I twisted my grandaughters bangs and used the small butterfly clips. I hadn't thought of doing the twist thing on my head. It looks good!

You're welcome Linda! When I was 11 (I'm 14 now) I had bangs and the moment I got home from the hairdresser I was almost in tears! My worst haircut ever! Bangs did not suit me, and I looked like Queen Cleopatra since my hair was long and black and straight at that time (although now it's brown and wavy for some reason!). I wanted to grow them out immediately so what I used to do was put my hair back with a hairband and my bangs never showed! Right now I have chin-length bangs and my mother doesn't like them very much, I think I'll keep them for a while though, it never hurts to try new things!

LOL!  Are you sure you're not 40 in a 14-year old's body?  I would never have guessed you were so young!  You are a very articulate young lady :)

Back in the day I grew out my bangs...my hair is as straight and silky as yours...my solution was to put gel on the sections and roll them onto straws or some other small diameter round object and secure with a bobby pin for 15 or so minutes (long enough to do your make-up, brush your teeth, etc...) when you take them out you are left with great little curls that stay out of your eyes!

Good luck growing them out!

Patience is the key to growing hair.  Most people will grow about 1/2 inch each month.  This might differ with the seasons....if you live where there are cold winters, you may have less growth in the winter. I have found that I average about 5 inches per year, which includes one trim a year of about 3/4".

French braids have saved me.  When my bangs were in my eyes, I could work them into two braids going down the sides of my head.  Now that the bangs are down to the tip of my nose, they stay pretty well in one center braid. 

No one has mentioned baseball caps yet.  Or maybe that only works if you have boys and spend a lot of time at their sporting events.    Roll Eyes

Anyone else notice this phenomenon?  My bangs seem
to grow twice as fast as my length.  I've decided for
the umpteenth time to grow them out.  My desire is
to have healthy, shiny, all one length hair to at least
my waist, no layers, fringes, ect.  So I try to grow them
out but I keep thinking I look better with them. But Now
I'm trying to grow them out and they're growing so fast
they're already past my eyebrows, and in my eyes.  Saw
all the good ideas on what to do with them.  The rest
of my hair hasn't grown like that.  Maybe thats a good thing.  I hope it isn't because my terminal lenght isn't
far away.  My hair has never been past BSL and now
it's a little past my shoulders.

Wow Shocked I always found that my bangs grow much slower than the rest of my head hair.

I guess that could be a good thing if you want to
keep bangs you would'nt have to trim them so often!

There is a theory that shorter hair will grow faster, trying to catch up to the longer hair.  How in the heck the hair KNOWS it is shorter, I have no idea!

I've heard that, too. Don't know if I believe it.  I guess
I'll see if they catch up to my longer hair.  They could
be growing faster because, being shorter, they'er
healthier and haven't been subject to all the torture
I put the last 3 inches of my hair through.  Maybe thats
it.

My hair, when shorter, grew 1"/month. Now it's past waist length and I get 0.5"/month. I have shoulder length bangs that grow 1-1.5"/month. For me, shorter hair grows quicker than longer hair!

Hello All...

Too much bang has long been a problem for me - My hair, though rather fine is very dense, especially in the bang area.  For decades I've used (everyone collectively shudder) Thinning shears on them - can you believe it Shocked ?!  For someone who has had waist to hip length  hair, it is amazing I have such a tool.  I have made it a regular habit to thin TO THE SCALP about 1/3 of my bangs every 2 months, due to their rapid growth and density.  It finally occurred to me that I'd have much greater mass in my length if I'd only stop torturing the poor short fringes and simply strive for a smaller section of bang (loud "Duh" here)  Undecided

... So, I started in fine sections about 8 years ago... the back 1/4 of my bangs have reached my length which just had (are you sitting down)a 5 inch trim over the summer.  Tongue The next 1/4 section is now below my shoulders (I wait a LONG time between "grow out" periods, obviously -  it takes me a while to forget how much I hate growing out bangs)

... so... it is now time for the next 1/4 section.... I find myself with far less patience this time - and have devised a creative but really pretty "bang catching" braid.  I have been stopped so many times by ladies wanting to know how I came up with this style... (boredom and loving to play with my hair while watching tv...... do other of you ladies find yourself re-creating styles you see on the tv???  As a nurse, I've got my hair up at work out of necessity - and have arrived at work with everything from elaborate victorian up-dos, to funky otherworldly design from a favorite sci-fi or fantasy shows....  My personal record is 246 consecutive workdays without a repeated hairstyle - One full calendar year... It started as a joke, but by the end of the year - it became quite a challenge!~!! I was taking photos of each new style just to keep track!  (yes, someone here who spends WAY too much time on her hair).... ha ha ha.  I can braid so rapidly, though, few styles take longer than 15 minutes total. (except the time I covered my entire skull in 1/4th inch braids - winding around and around - I looked like I was wearing the worlds most peculiar hair beany. I had 52 total braids, and their tiny diameter was quite a challenge - my hands were stiff for 2 days afterwards!!!)

Sorry - just finished a 12 hour shift - I do tend to ramble when I'm weary.....Back to the subject at hand....
I've devised a hair-hairband.  I part with both fingers just below each ear - 1.5 inches into my hair.  I then continue to "part" the hair up to the crown until my fingers meet.  I carefully separate this section in front, then secure the length in back with a quick, sloppy braid to keep it out of the way.  the front section is then brushed/combed forward over my face until smooth then over to the left (also, a significant tilt of the head to the left helps tremendously)... starting over the right ear, I make a 'lace braid', also called a half-french braid.  You begin by holding the left hand with elbow pointing behind you.  Right straight up and down (elbow pointing to ground) - [hands perpendicular to one another]... begin taking TINY sections from the front ONLY then completing braid without additional section with left hand (the ultimate appearance is: french braid from hairline to part, english-like braid on the back side)- continue taking section after section with right hand, while slowly straightening up your neck and tipping eventually to the right.  If you keep your left hand back far enough, the "depth" of the braid nearly 2 full inches - in effect, you are 'laying' the braid right over the part line - and when completed properly - the part becomes completely ivisible - when you reach the left ear, you should have exhausted your "extra" hair (no more to add in) and procede with a simple English braid to the end.  left at that - you have a lovely long style (once combing out the back) - with a hairband on the top and a braid along the left side of your face.  My "usual" follow up to the hair hair-band is to braid the remaining (back/length) hair in a high english braid which I then twist into a figure 8 or spiral bun, affix with one longlocks hairstick then bring up the small hairband braid and figure 8 twist it around the first stick, or around the border of the large braid and anchor with the second hairstick.

Wow.  Just read through that - does it make any sense?

I have hundreds of hair style photos, many with the hair hairband - but they are standard 4x6 paper photos, and I'm not sure how to show them on the board.... (love e-mail and checking long hair sites - [and buying LongLocks hairsticks - right susan? ha ha] - but am otherwise not very computer saavy)

This is a wonderful way to trap the short hairs with the long that are included in that front section......
I hope someone tries this, using my directions, and lets me know if I need to clarify it??????????????

Have fun!
