(upbeat pop music) – Hey guys! It’s Mindy from Cute Girls Hairstyles, and I got bangs! What do you guys think? Do you like ’em? Woohoo! I mean, my girls were telling me they thought I would look cute with bangs, so here we go. Just kidding! Today we are going to be doing a fab or fail on fake bangs, everything you guys wanna know from what type of hair, where to buy ’em, do they really work, can you make them work, can they look good, and anything else. Now if you guys are

join us for all of the fun. Now let’s talk all things bangs. Okay, so the first thing I
did when I started thinking about doing a fab or fail on fake bangs was order some online, so I actually ordered four
different types of bangs online. I got ’em all off Amazon. They ranged in price
from $3.99 to like $7.99 for the most expensive one, so none of them are very expensive, and I think the $7.99 one
even came as a set of two. You know when you’re ordering online, you’re kinda guessing on colors. Now I picked what I thought
was obviously the best for my hair color. I have a little bit darker roots. You can see my ombre is
starting to grow out, needs to be redone, and
so I have some highlights. This was dark brown on one set of bangs, and you can see the
coloring is not quite right for my hair on that one. This was another set I ordered, and again, the coloring is a little bit
too dark for my hair color. Third set was a little
lighter in color so I thought maybe this one’s gonna work, but then when I put it against my hair, it actually is a little
more red than my hair, but it’s pretty close. That one’s a lot closer, and the last one which I thought was actually probably the best was this set. I don’t know why I say set. They’re not really a set, but this bang, and that one’s I feel
like the very closest to my hair color if you just look at it, and so probably the most believable, so my first piece of advice on this one would be that it’s sort
of a guessing game. You’re just kinda luck of the draw. It’s like buying extensions. You just never know what
color you’re really gonna get, so you’re probably gonna
end up buying more than one. That’s tip number one. Okay, so number two. All types of hair are not created equally, so in my hair bags I have
some that claim they’re actual human hair based and
some that are synthetic. This one says it’s synthetic. The synthetic are not going to take curl if you want to touch
them up with a flat iron, or a curling wand or anything, it’s not going to work as well on the synthetic hair as the human hair, so just keep that in mind. This is the Aoert. It’s A-O-E-R-T. Came literally in this
baggie just like this. There were no instructions whatsoever, so I guess we’re just sort
of figuring it out ourselves. Comes with a clip on the
back, you can see that, and the hair clip’s
actually facing backwards. So, a lot of times hair extensions, you lay them against your scalp and then you kinda push
them back forward like that, this one you’re actually
literally just gonna go push it back and snap it in. What I’m gonna do is sort
of just make a little nest for it on my hair, and we’re just gonna kinda
clip it into the front of my, like we’re gonna try to get
a good bite with that clip and put it in there. Okay. And then what you wanna do is
sort of just have your hair fall around it so that it blends your hair with the fake hair and actually
sort of looks like bangs. That’s the goal. So, here’s clip in number one, and you can see that
the bangs don’t want to lay like, perfectly. See how they kinda have a
funky curl maybe from how they got shipped or something. So I’m actually gonna flip
on the hair straightener and just see if I can
touch it up really quick, and how it takes to that. But this one, I mean it’s decent. I don’t think it looks
super realistic, I guess, but it doesn’t look awful. Like, if I put in a headband. I dunno, what do you guys think? Let’s try putting a little
heat on it and see how it does. So with the heat I just sort of want it to lay a little bit flatter, maybe a little more straight, sort of look a little more realistic, and you can see the hair
did not like the heat, so now they’re just
really straight and funky. So, this must be made out of synthetic. I can smell the way that it’s curling, it’s just not doing well
with the straightener at all, so keep that in mind. You kinda just have to wear
them like you’re gonna get ’em or this happens. What do we think? I think I would not wear that. We’re gonna go also with
another wispier pair. This one’s made by Smilco and it again came with
no directions whatsoever. This one does say that
it’s synthetic hair, and again, same kind of clip, and it pushes up against your scalp, same exact type of
layout as the last ones. Okay. So there’s clipped in,
let’s see if I can hide it. Again, don’t think this
is quite the right color for my hair, but I dunno. What do you think? Is it any better than the first one? I feel like it’s about the same. Let’s try a headband. We put a headband in. What do you think? I actually feel like that
one’s a little better. I still don’t know if I would wear it, especially ’cause I feel
like it doesn’t match my hair color, which is totally annoying, but again they’re laying a little funky, and I can tell just by touching this this is synthetic hair as well, so if I put the flat iron on it, it’s just gonna do all
kinds of funky things so I don’t think that’s a good idea. Okay this one was Reecho, is the brand on this one. It actually came with some directions. Yay! And, this is the one that
came with two sets of hair. Okay, now this one is the
clips the reversed way, so this is you put it in and
then push it down forward. I dunno, because I feel
like this is way far back. Okay, put it in. Push it down. Try to really get it in there. Clamp it. Whoa. I feel like that’s a lot of hair. Obviously again color is an
issue on this one big time. This one sits back
further, this piece does. The others sat more like right here. This one’s back even further. They’re making my fingertips
a little bit brown, and I don’t know about these things. I think these are supposed to look like you have pretty
layers that just blend, but I kinda feel like they
just look like a hot mess. I dunno if there’s any saving this one. Maybe if we tucked, if we
tucked this totally away, would that be better? Let me check. Well, that’s better. Getting rid of those side pieces for sure. It’s definitely a lot thicker bang. The others were like more
sparse and sort of like, I dunno, a light bang, and this is definitely a heavy bang. So, let’s put in a headband
and see what we think. Okay, this one, just out of curiosity, because it does sit so
far back on my forehead, and because it has
these weird side pieces, and since they sent me two, I actually cut the second one. I cut off the long pieces and just trimmed them up a little bit, see if they would look better
if they sat up further, ’cause stuff like this you
can take in to a hair cutter when you get your hair trimmed
and they’ll cut them for you, so I was gonna try and see
if this made it any better. Let’s see, find out. Doesn’t sit back as far. Trying to get it tight
enough against your head. Okay, okay, I think we
got a good grab that time. Now, let’s see if we can just
hide it with my own hair, now you’ll all see we don’t,
we cut the weird side pieces so we don’t have those, so it lays a little better. If I added a headband, and pretend they were the right color, because obviously this
one’s not the right color, but does it look real? Can you tell that they’re
sitting on my forehead? I do like ’em better, just for the record, with the side things cut off, ’cause those are kinda funky, and cut up, trimmed up, so that was a good idea on that one. This set of bangs is called Rossy & Nancy, and this is Brazilian human hair, it says, and it did come with a
little instruction pictures. They actually say to pin it down, which I don’t know why
you’d want it pinned, ’cause then you can’t hide things as well. But this one’s way back on my forehead, like crazy back on my forehead, like halfway back on my
head, which I dislike, and I still am drowning in bangs. That’s so long. Okay, I’ve got to trim these up because they’re so long it’s ridiculous. Okay, so I went into the bathroom,` I took my hair scissors, and I cut probably an inch, inch and a half off the bottom of the bangs. I decided to leave these just to see what it would look like. The hardest part is getting
the clips really tight down against your scalp so
that they wanna lay flat. So, kinda reaching back,
pulling my hair out of the way, and just really trying to
get those down into my scalp, and then there’s a third
clip right here that I put in very last, just once I feel like it’s
kinda positioned correctly, then I snap that one down. Okay. So I’m gonna just pull my own hair around. You can obviously see the
color is 1000 times better. This is the right color for my hair. Let’s adjust here accordingly, and you can see that it’s
mixing pretty well this time, like those edge pieces are
mixing with my hair much better. Okay, so there you go. I also, just so you know,
because when I cut it, it was a little thick, so I point, I did point
cuts just on the edges, just to try to make them
lay a little flatter and not look quite as thick. I feel like this side’s still
leaning down a little bit, so let me pull this one up a smidge, so let’s try, like if I
was gonna wear a headband. There. Can you tell? I do feel like these blend
a lot better in my own hair. Like, I mean, I could take a flat iron. The flat iron is doing
better on this as well, because it’s real hair, not synthetic. Like I do feel like I could flatten these into my own hair and you would probably hardly even be able
to tell they were there, which is great, and let’s try, just for kicks and giggles, this is by far my favorite on me, because just the hair color matches, and I think that it
looks the most realistic. I don’t think you’d wear these every day. If you wanted bangs every
day, you’d just cut ’em, but I feel like this would be a fun way to just change up a look, almost like an accessory to an outfit. So I am gonna just play
with a few things on my hair and see what it would look
like if I played with things. (sparkling jingle) There you kinda have a
ponytail-ish look with bangs. It’s kinda fun just for
something different, and if you wanted to mix it up even more, you could do a messy bun with
a cute rabbit ear scrunchie, I look like that. (sparkling jingle) I mean, if you even just
wanted to leave it like that, but I was thinking it might be cute to cross ’em up and over,
and if you pinned ’em down, give yourself a nice little
crown braid with your bangs in, and see what that looks like. So you can see, I do feel like these look the most realistic for sure. Okay guys, and then just for
fun I tried a bandana look, which ended up, I think,
turned out really cute. Anything that kinda
helps hide that top bit is gonna make it even more realistic, so this is sort of the final look, and I actually think these
bangs didn’t turn out too bad. Okay guys. Let’s do the final spin. (upbeat music) And spin. And around. Leave a comment down below. I wanna hear what you guys think. Do you love ’em? Do you hate ’em? Do you think they look believable? Do you think they look
totally unrealistic? Would you ever wear them? So, I think that I’m gonna give it and overall fab, and this is why, because it’s really fun
to just change your look, and change your hairstyle, and your, the whole shebang, without the actual
commitment of cutting bangs and dealing with all of that
and the grow out thereafter. So, for just a total fun, change of pace, change of scenery on your hair, I’m gonna give it a a fab. There is a slight caveat in just that you need to go into it
knowing that it might take a couple sets before you
find one that matches your hair color, or you might just have to do like I do and actually just trim it yourself to kinda mix it up and make sure it works, but once you get it set, super fun. So, fab. There you go. Fab, guys. Like the fake bangs. I think they’re kinda cool. If you guys have not already
