BTT: HOW TO CUT YOUR OWN BANGS

Welcome to Beauty Tip Tuesday!
Hadlee's here for Hair Talk:
HOW TO TRIM YOUR OWN BANGS...I was planning on making my own video on how to cut your own bangs, but 1: Mine dont need cut...I've been trimming mine too much lately. And 2: I couldn't get ahold of anyone soon enough to video THEM. So I went with 3: YouTube Video.
POINTERS:
*Use small scissors
*Make sure your bangs are dry and straight
*Use a small-tooth comb

If you're a beginner, this is the perfect way to cut your bangs.
Once you get the hang of it, you can skip the step of cutting STRAIGHT accross with your scissors horizontal. Instead you would comb your bangs down like usual and point cut with your scissors at about a 45* angle (and not have to do it at the end). NEVER cut your bangs straight horizontally and leave them. ALWAYS texturize, whether you 'point cut' from the beginning, or wait to 'point cut' at the end.
This is for ALL BANGS! Side, Swoop, Full, etc...

Go HERE to learn more about the right bangs for the right face shape.
Dont forget the LINKY party on Friday!

That is a good thing to know how to do! Seriously, my hairdresser wishes I knew how to do it correctly every time I come in - lol. I always do it wrong!

Thanks for the tips!

This is awesome! Thank you so much. I attempted to cut my bangs a few days ago. I kind of did what you said but I don't think enough texturizing. Need to go back and re-work. You can check ou tmy bangs here..

I definitely need this! I can't afford to go get my bangs cut every couple of weeks, and I hate the too-short-to-be-sideswept-but-too-long-to-wear-straight stage. Ugh.

Thanks so much! I'm really needing a trim on my bangs and I didn't feel like heading to the hairdresser to have em trimmed. I'm definitely doing this tonight :)

I wish you would have posted this like 4 days ago! lol I cut my bangs right before church, and let's just say, i didn't listen very well because i was afraid everyone was staring at my too-short bangs! lol
