If you are like me, you get bored of your hair fast. Well for me, it’s mostly my bangs. Normally I wear them long, swooped and parted on the side but every once in awhile I have an itch for full short bangs.
Also, I’m not a big fan of going back to the salon just to get my bangs trimmed. They just grow too fast and there is never enough time to go. That being said, I’ve cut my bangs pretty much my whole life and last weekend I had another itch for a fabulous fringe! Check out my step by step how-to below:
Using a mirror and cutting shears (or sharp scissors) do the following:
- Make sure your bangs are fully dry before cutting them! If you cut your hair while wet, there’s a big chance they will dry and be shorter than you expected. Separate your bangs from the rest of your hair and clip up everything but your bangs.This gives you a clean a precise working space.
- Take your bangs, pull them down in front of your face, and make sure they’re even. After doing this, hold your scissors with the ends pointing up, perpendicular to the line of your bangs, and cut into the bangs. Never cut straight across- that’s how you get the “bowl” look. Cutting into the bangs will allow for a more natural finish. Trim slowly and step back away from the mirror to look at your work before cutting more.
- Patience is key and don’t overcut. It’s better to leave them too long and go back at it then have them too short to begin with.
- Unclip your hair and natural shake your bangs so they fall as they would normally. If there are any strays or you need to modify, start at step one again.
