6. Use a flat iron to tame your cowlick and get perfect side-swept bangs.

Having trouble getting your bangs to lie down straight and STAY that way? Follow this tutorial, which involves using a flat iron or round brush and a little back-combing.


23. Tame flyaway hair strands by spraying a toothbrush with hairspray and combing them down.

The denseness of the bristles will ensure that each wispy hair is coated and tamed by the hairspray.

24. You don't have to wash your hair every day — just wash your bangs.

If you have especially long hair that is a pain to wash, but your bangs just don't lie down right when your hair is greasy, try pulling your hair back and just washing your bangs in the sink. You'll spend less time washing and drying your hair.

25. If all you need is a little bit of extra body, scrunch your hair with beach spray or gel and use a diffuser.

29. For the easiest, most secure buns ever, use spin pins instead of bobby pins.
