Basic bang trim

22 Apr


Begin by sectioning off bangs.

I go straight up from the edge of one eye

up and around to the edge of the other eye.

Then hold the bangs between your fingers.

Next, pull bangs into the center of the face. This will create a slightly rounded bang.

Here comes the first cut! A general rule of thumb for bang length when cutting on wet hair is the bridge of the nose. (the hair will shrink after it dries) I am doing this on dry hair so I did eyebrow length.

You did it! You could stop here if you want to.......

This next step softens the blunt edge. Take a 3/4 inch wide section in the middle and pull it out from head.

Find your guide! It will be the shortest hair. You are trying to take off that corner, see it?

Cut up from the guide and get the longer hair. Scissors should be pointing towards the ceiling 🙂

Repeat this step two more times with a section to the left of center and to the right of center.

The cutest customers are always the hardest to please!

Make sure you steal a kiss anyway!
