Flat iron gives a side-swept effect to your bangs creating an elegant look with a pretty flair. This is how you can style curtain bangs with a flat iron:

  5. Now take the outer partition of your left side bangs and curl them into a C, but a little looser than the lower partition. 
  6. Repeat the same process for the right partition of the bangs. 
  7. Once the bangs are cooled, tousle your bangs gently with your fingers or brush gently to style them in whatever way that makes you feel pretty.
