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.

work-adj, pride-adj, request
