For those of you who've grown out bangs: what do I do with my hair while it's long enough to get in my eyes but not long enough to tuck behind an ear?

I recently obtained Bobby pins, which are doing a good job of keeping hair off my eyebrows etc. (which is unexpectedly nice), but I neither know how to arrange them to look nice, nor whether there are better alternatives.

@aschmitz i push it up, sometimes. v different look tho, and it's only easy for some hair types

@cascode Thanks! Does that stay in place?

I think my hair mostly flops down, though I guess I could spray things on it to keep that from happening. (I suspect it may also just work better once my hair is longer.)

@aschmitz it stays in place on its own for some people (me, for example), depends a lot on hair texture i think.

also once my hair is long enough that i can pull it past the tip of my nose if i try, it:
- does not stay pushed up as easily
- looks a bit odder when fully pushed up in this way (this can be either a positive or a negative depending on what kind of look you prefer)
@aschmitz (sometimes when it gets really long i just swoop it instead)
