So, yesterday I went into the bathroom and cut my own bangs. I love love love the way my bangs turned out, and I’m having fun sporting them. I wanted thick, blunt bangs, so I just brushed all my hair forward and eyeballed where I wanted my bangs to start. I took some scissors and cut in a straight line, and tried to make it even. I’m not a hairstylist but I am surprised by how much I liked the result. Here are some photos:
Basically before I had bangs, I was in the grow-out phase of trying to get long hair after doing a really short pixie cut. My hair started to look pretty bad, and it got really annoying because it was always in my face. I thought bangs would fix it and make it not only cute but also less annoying. I’m kind of a do-it-yourself person with many different things, within reason. So, for thick bangs, it’s pretty simple, and only takes a few minutes. Just follow these five steps:
- Get scissors and a brush.
- Brush all your hair forward over your face. This gives you more hair in the bangs, adding to the fullness. If you only brush some of your hair forward, the bangs will be thinner.
- Decide where you want the bangs to start on each side. Test it out by sort of folding your hair into mock-bangs, creating an idea of what it might look like.
- Grab your scissors and cut in a straight line across your forehead, a little bit at a time, taking small snips. Don’t just try to hack it all off with one stroke, that will not turn out well.
- Check for evenness. Fix any uneven parts.
This will result in blunt, thick bangs, though your hair type will determine how thick they look. If you have thin hair, they may look thinner. Hope this tutorial was helpful, and I am not an expert, so if you don’t feel comfortable taking the risk of cutting your own hair and messing it up, don’t try this. Just see a professional hairstylist.
Well, again, loving my new do, and enjoying rocking it. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
