Bangs are everywhere you look these days. Vanessa Hudgens has them; Hilary Duff; Emma Stone – the hair trend is in full force. Should you get inspired to do them one day and you don’t want to make an appointment to then chicken out during the wait for the big day, cut your bangs yourself! Surprisingly, cutting your bangs well is simple as long as you become familiar with the steps and you use the right tools. Most important are the technique, correct sectioning and the right scissors.
First thing’s first: Make sure you start with dry hair so that your bangs are cut to the actual length at which you want them to hang.
Sectioning: Collect hair starting 1 inch in from your hairline (in the middle of your face) and gradually thinning towards the sides. Clip the rest of your hair back and out of the way with Bio Ionic iTools iClips. DO NOT section your bangs wider than the outsides of your eyebrows.
Cutting: Using hair-cutting scissors, hold the scissors vertically and cut vertically. Use the tip of the scissors to point cut so your bangs don’t form a very strong, straight line across your face.
– Cut the edges slightly longer for a softer, more natural look.
