Adding blunt bangs to your look can be a stylish way to change or update your existing haircut without an entire haircut overhaul. These bangs are cut evenly across the forehead and typically fall barely below the eyebrow. Cutting bangs yourself can be a manageable task, even if they’re as precise as the blunt cut. You’ll save money by cutting them yourself, and there won’t be any effort in explaining exactly what you want to a stylist. Plus, once you’ve cut your bangs from scratch, it will be even easier to give yourself touch-up trims.
To create your own blunt bangs, you can follow some steps below :
- Wash your hair to remove any product or style. Comb out your damp hair until it is smooth.
- Allow hair to dry completely either naturally or with a hairdryer. Cutting fringe dry allows you to better asses the actual length, as wet hair will shrink up as it dries.combs can help determine how wide fringe should be.Brush or comb your hair and assess the thickness of how much you want to cut, as well as how far back and wide you want to cut. To determine width, generally, fringe should stop in the middle to where your pupil lines up with your hairline. You can better see this line by holding a tail comb, ruler, pencil, or any straight object up to your pupil.
- Divide the section you’ve selected for fringe into three sections. Clip back the two side sections, leaving the middle section open to begin cutting.
- Hold the first, middle section with the hand you’re not using to cut, between your thumb and index finger, measuring 1/4 of an inch from the tip of the hair section. You’re going to only cut 1/4 of an inch at a time. This way, you avoid making mistakes on larger portions of hair. If your hair is very long, you can get most of the hair out of the way by cutting a large portion off so it hits just at your nose and then start cutting in 1/4 inch increments from there.
- Your fingers should be the guide for your scissors as you’re cutting. Cut hair section vertically with scissors until it hits the 1/4 inch mark you’re holding with your index finger and thumb. Don’t pull hair too tightly, otherwise, you won’t be able to assess hair length as accurately. Cut the other two sections in the same manner so that they’re in line with the first cut section. Continue cutting 1/4 inch pieces off until you’ve hit the length you desire, fluffing hair to see how the length looks between each time you cut across all sections. When you’re close to the length you want, start cutting with the scissors horizontally. If you want a more textured fringe, continue cutting vertically.
