The Bang Trend That's Swooping In at NYFW Fall 2014

(ImaxTree) Although we love the fashions of NYFW, sometimes it's the hair and makeup trends that really catch our attention. After all, they're often a teensie bit more attainable than a designer ball gown. This season, we've spotted an easy-to-recreate trend that's swooping the runway. The side-swept bang has made an appearance at least eight times this season—and there are still more shows slated! Let's take a peek at how the fashion world is doing the swooping bang. Plus, learn how to create the look yourself.

(ImaxTree)Want to give the look a go at home? We've got the condensed how-to guide, right this way:

Step 1) Starting with the roots and working your way to the middle of the hair, spray hair with volumizing spray.

Step 2) Use a little bit of mousse on the middle of the hair moving downward. Blow dry.

Step 3) Create a part to the left (or right) side with fingers. For extra style, leave a break in the swoop.

Step 4) For a ponytail look, tie off hair with an elastic at the nape of the neck. For a flowing look, style as usual.

Step 5) To make the look more casual and worn in, use fingers to pull out any imperfections and part the swoop. Finish with a holding spray. 

Voila! Who said you couldn't get a look from the runways in real life?
