SUICIDE HAIR TUTORIAL FOR GROWING OUT BANGS
I know from past experience that growing out your bangs can be a real pain. Sooner or later, they reach an awkward phase where they’re too long to keep wearing the old way, but they aren’t quite long enough to incorporate into the rest of your hair yet.
Before we get started with the hair tutorial, I have a couple tips for you about growing out bangs. You can help your bangs begin to blend in by thinning the ends a bit as they grow – either using thinning shears, or by point cutting – holding your scissors vertically, to take out just a little bulk. Don’t thin too much, you want to soften the harsh line of your old bangs, not create layers or too much choppiness. And never thin your hair close to your scalp, you’ll just end up with short little hairs that poke out no matter what you do!

You should also blow dry your hair in the direction that you want it to lay, starting when your hair is completely wet. Once it’s half way dry, adding just a touch of styling product will help it lay where you want it as you continue to dry it. Once it’s completely dry, you can finish it off with a cute style like we’re going to show you today!
Today my beautiful friend Jessa is going to show you how to do a quick, easy, retro pin-up/rockabilly sort of hairstyle, which is great for growing out your bangs. Here’s Jessa :)
Hello Brighter Sides! I am Jessa and I am the heart and voice behind the Caked Vintage Blog. Today I wanted to share an easy retro infused tutorial for Suicide Roll Bangs. I am currently attempting to grow out my hair a bit which also means my bangs are a bit long. I am constantly trying to come up with fun ways to cope with overgrown bangs and am so happy Kelsi invited me over to share one of them with you. Hope you enjoy the tutorial!
1. Section off top layer and tease. (note from Kelsi: A fine tooth comb works well for teasing, but nothing can beat a teasing brush! This one creates tons of fluffy volume.)
2. Continue teasing in sections.
3. Once teased throughout, use a comb to gently smooth the top layer of bangs. Careful not to disturb too much of the teasing. Swoop bangs across forehead curling ends up and under.
4. Bangs should create a circle from the side view, secure ends using bobby pins.
5. Spray with hairspray and smooth out any little stray hairs.
That’s it! A fun and unique way to deal with those overgrown bangs! If you have longer locks just keep curling the hair in for a more extreme roll. If you would like to see the walk through of how I style my Classic Bandana be sure to stop by and say hi!
Thanks, Jessa! Jessa originally wrote this tutorial for me a few years ago, and her blog, Caked Vintage hasn’t been updated in some time, but it’s totally worth checking out her archives! It was one of my favorite blogs when it was in full swing, and she still has all of her old posts online for you to see.
