Bangs always seem like a great idea at first, but as anyone who has them knows, maintenance isn't easy. Trimming them, drying them, styling them, and keeping them from looking like a stringy set of curtains on top of your head can be challenging. In this episode, Hairstylist Nicole Descoteaux at Butterfly Studio Salon in Flatiron teaches Racked NY Associate Editor Nicola Fumo how to have the perfect set, from the proper way to shape them to keeping them clean when you don't have time to wash your hair.
