If you’re on the fence about getting bangs, allow us to be the ones to convince you to do it. You may have waffled in your decision to get bangs because you don’t think you’ll be able to style them without the help of a pro stylist. What you may not know is that there are a slew of gorgeous hairstyles with bangs that are a lot simpler to create than you think. So, we’ve got step-by-step instructions for creating a handful of hairstyles that you can easily incorporate into your everyday routine. Whether you want to rock a classic blowout or a braided crown, below we share all the products and accessories you’ll need to bring your bangs-lovin’ look to life.

Bangs Hairstyle #1: Classic Blowout

There’s just something so satisfying about a good blowout. Before reaching for your blow-dryer, apply a mousse, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse to damp hair, then style as usual. Use a round brush to smooth your bangs as you blow-dry them.

Bangs Hairstyle #2: Edgy Side Braids with Fringe

Going out with the girls? Or maybe you’re prepping for your next festival? Either way, this edgy braided hairstyle is sure to turn heads in the process. All you have to do is blow-dry your bangs forwards and the hair at the crown of your head backward. (Just remember to spritz on a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray, first.) Next, part your hair (apart from your bangs) down the middle and Dutch braid a section of hair extending from the apex of your bangs down to the top of your ear on each side of your head. Keep in mind that you want that section to be the starting point of your Dutch braids and that you’ll braid them back a couple inches behind your ears before finishing in a traditional three-strand braid all the way down to your ends. Secure each braid with clear mini elastics and you’re ready to rock the night away! The braided back sections give a pulled-back appearance without taking away from your overall length or style—not to mention it lets your bangs stand center stage.

Bangs Hairstyle #3: Lived-In Updo

No time for a shower? No worries! Hide your day-two hair with this lived-in updo. Simply run a boar’s bristle brush through your dry hair before spritzing it with the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo. Proceed to knead your tresses with your fingers before twisting it into a messy bun. Instead of securing your hairstyle with a hair tie, allow it to look a little more undone with just a few bobby pins holding it in place. To finish off this hairstyle, brush your bangs forward and piece them apart in the middle.

Bangs Hairstyle #4: Super-Sleek Pinned Back Bangs

You’ve seen them on the hippest models and the most stylish girls walking down the street. These sleek pinned back bangs are all about playing up the accessories you use as opposed to your actual bangs. To get the look, apply a dollop of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream to damp hair before letting it air dry. Once it’s dry, create a side part and smooth your bangs down before securing them in place with the accessories of your choice. We’re particularly in love with the way barrettes and rose gold bobby pins tie this look together—but in the end, the choice is yours. Remember that the key to this hairstyle is not to brush your bangs back like they’re going behind your ear but straight down, as they would normally lay if parted to the side regularly. The accessories will keep them pinned together so your killer hairstyle doesn’t piece apart throughout the day.

Bangs Hairstyle #5: Braided Crown with Bangs

Look absolutely royal with this super-simple hairstyle. All you have to do is part your hair down the middle behind your bangs and create a Dutch braid on each side, starting at your part and moving towards your ear. Once you reach just behind your ear, stop incorporating new strands of hair and continue each braid down to the ends. From there, pull the braid up over your head and pin one behind the other, making sure to conceal the ends for a totally put-together style. Finish with a spritz of hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, and your crown will sit beautifully atop your head all day long.
