I twisted my bangs and then incorporated them into a soft braid on the left side (i had to add length to the bangs by adding some of my longer hair to the twist, otherwise they would have been too short to add to the braid). To help the braid stay in and to give it an extra something, I started a French braid behind my right ear before adding the hair on my right side into the braid. I had some pieces that were falling out, so I pinned them up to the back of my head and covered them with a flower clip. I did this with clean, dry hair. Products below gave me that much-needed texture and hold.
