How To Cut Bangs On Your Own
You must start by making a straight parting to divide your hair into two sections along the middle of your head. You need to make sure there is perfect symmetry between the two sides.
You need to keep your head up and your eyes forward. Next, locate the flat part of your head by placing the brush on your scalp. You may use this point to pinpoint the perfect spot to begin your bangs.
Hold the point where the comb was lying flat and place a finger. With the other hand, pinpoint the location of your eyebrow’s arch concerning your hairline.
Now, starting at the crown of your head, comb your hair down to your hairline, stopping just in front of your eyebrow’s natural arch.
Hold the split portion of your hair, and secure the rest with a clip. Then, set down the strand of hair you previously held and go to the opposite side of your head, repeating steps 3 and 4.
Get the split piece wet by spraying it with water once you’ve finished the other side of the hair. When you’re finished, comb it out so it’s flat and smooth. Remember that you should always start with smooth, detangled hair before attempting any kind of trimming.
Scoop up the damp strand and comb it, maintaining the comb underneath the hair. Straighten your hair by pressing it flat and straight between your fingers. The best length for a straight cut is about above the chin. You can always cut them shorter later if you like.
Part the two halves back again at the middle, and tuck half of them behind your ear. Next, separate your hair to the side and position your comb at the front. Keep your comb perpendicular to the portion as you style.
Maintaining the same angle, move the comb down your hair until you reach the first corner. Use a blow dryer with the least heat setting to dry your bangs. Dry your bangs by brushing them downwards.
After the roots have dried fully flat, shape the bangs by parting them down the middle once again. If you want your curtain bangs to face the opposite direction, just pry them apart and keep them there. Part off a tiny bit of hair and use a round brush to comb through it, flipping it around at the end. Blow the hair from around the brush while you style it using the narrowest nozzle on your hair drier. Your bangs, as you can see, terminate in a gentle curl.
The feathery effect will add dimension to your curtain bangs. Grab your fringe and smooth it down with a comb. Then, pinch your brow hairs in the middle with your fingers and cut gently onto the sides. This face-framing haircut may be seen once the rest of your hair is freed up and your curtain bangs are blended. Curtain bangs have the same effect on your face as curtains have in front of a window. Dry shampoo should be used daily to maintain the look of your curtain bangs.
