- BlowDrying And Brushing
As you blow-dry your bangs, use a brush to make curls on your hair to the waves and style that you desire. The heat from the blow drier helps to hold the curls into position. Blowing them while brushing with a round bush gives the curtain bangs a bouncy feature making them firm and curlier.
