If all else fails, keep your bangs off and away from your face with a cute hair accessory. Brightly colored bobby pins, scarf headbands and flower crowns are fun and chic alternatives to preventing a sweaty set of bangs. Frame your face and prevent bang sweat with an ASOS Bandana Print Headscarf Neckerchief ($6).
