When my sister and I were little girls we had amazing 80's and 90's bangs. We took turns in front of the mirror with mom each morning where she would make our bangs be all that they could be with a curling iron, Focus 21 hairspray, and "the blue brush." It was a very special brush that we all fought over. My bangs were always ruined by lunch time because I couldn't keep my hands off my forehead. However, my sister preserved her bangs, respraying and touching them up as the day went by. Occasionally she would have the perfect bang day. When it came time to part with her bang sculpture, she wasn't always ready to say goodbye. On those days she would wash her hair under the bathtub faucet with such precision that her bangs were untouched. They remained perfectly dry and in position while the rest of her hair was shampooed, conditioned, and given a new chance at glory. Folks, that is skill right there. In case you're forming a weird idea of my sister, I need you to know that she is the spitting image of cool and has been since the day of her birth. This is a prom queen I'm speaking of. If she had let her friends in on this little beauty tip, it would have made its way to Y.M. and then to Allure Magazine and we'd all have learned bang preservation years ago.
