Full Answer

  1. Part and dry your hair

    Part your hair to the side. Leave more hair on the side of your head that you want the swoop in your bangs to be located. Dry all of your hair and then dampen your bangs with a small amount of water.

  2. Use a round brush to dry your bangs

    Position the round brush so your bangs are resting on top of the brush. While you blow dry your hair, pull straight down on the brush. Repeat this process until your bangs are nearly dry.

  3. Use a round brush to create a swoop

    Position the round brush so your bangs are underneath the brush. While you blow dry your hair, spin the brush back towards your head, and pull the brush forward until your bangs are positioned in the proper area.

  4. Let your bangs set

    Either hold the brush in place while your hair cools naturally, or use your blow dryer on a cool setting until your hair is completely cooled.

  5. Style your hair

    Pull the round brush up, and let your bangs fall naturally to the side. Apply hairspray directly underneath your bangs to hold the style.
