2. Hair Dryer
If you are struggling with your bangs because of a stubborn cowlick, Mycke says, “a good blowout towards the face is always key!” Right after a wash, train your bangs to set in the position you wish by giving it a blowout with your go-to hair dryer. This should conceal the awkward partition that usually occurs in your fringe.
