How to trim your bangs at home

Anybody that has a hairstyle with bangs know its a pain in the ass to pop over to the salon every week to get it trimmed. While we don't recommend it, we know your gonna do it anyway! So we have thrown a few tips together to make sure you do it properly.

Invest in a pair of hairdressing scissors. Using an old pair kitchen scissors is just not good enough. Because your doing it at home by yourself I would suggest doing it on dry hair, wet hair is a little harder to judge how much your taking off as it springs up when dry.

Step 1:- Separate the the bangs with a fine tooth comb from the rest of the hair, and brush into position.

Step 2:-Pull the hair in front of your eyes so you can get a good look. Your fingers will work as a guide as you clamp your bangs between your fingers along the bottom fringe. If you are keeping up on your trims, you will be able to tell if your bangs are cut in a straight line or at an angle.

Step 3:- When making the first cut to your own bangs, make small snipping motions with just the points of your scissors facing upwards. Follow the existing line carefully and only take off a little at a time. Remember, you can always take off more but you can’t put it back on.

Good luck!
