If you have bangs, you might know how fast they seem to grow! It can be a pain to head to the salon all the time to get them trimmed, not to mention how costs can add up. You might be wondering how you can cut your own bangs at home, but not mess up? Well, it actually can be quite easy if you have the right knowledge and tools.
First, you will need to make sure you have hair cutting scissors and a comb. Next, you’ll need to determine what style of bangs you have and what kind you want. It can be beneficial to cut your bangs dry the first time to make sure they are even. If your hair is a little wavy, you can spritz them with water to dampen them so they lay flat.
If you want blunt bangs, part your hair and you should see a triangle-like shape above your hairline. The sides will come down along your forehead. This will ensure you are cutting evenly. Comb all of your bangs forward and pin the rest of your hair back.
Gather hair between your pointer and middle finger and make sure the hair is in a straight line. Start to cut hair below your fingers, once you’ve decided how long you want your bangs to be. Cut your bangs in very small segments. If you cut them wet, make sure to leave them a little longer because they will shrink when dry.
If you want your bangs to angle a bit, cut at a downward angle past your eyes until you’ve reached the end of your hair. Once your bangs are at your desired length, if you don’t want them to be completely blunt, make small snips at the tip of your bangs while holding the scissors parallel to your hair.
Lastly, style your bangs and make sure they are just right! This can help you skip a few sessions at the salon. If you enjoyed this article, be sure to SHARE it with all of your friends who have bangs or may want them in the future!
