Slick and smooth is what this style is about. The back and sides are short and close to the head, while the top is left slightly longer to fall flat and contour the head. This look is best suited for those with naturally straight hair and will need regular trims every 4-6 weeks to maintain shape.

4. Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax
Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.
