Everyone is different but you can use your eyelashes as your gauge, cutting piece by piece in a straight line until you are complete. If you think you need to cut more don’t just continue cutting, we suggest you wet your hair, allow it to dry and see where your hair falls to make sure you absolutely need to cut more.
The thing about bangs is, once you cut that’s it, there are no takeies backsies, so you need to be absolutely sure and careful. The lovely Nik Scott LHDC did a video where she cuts bangs on dry hair, it was a pretty honest video because she made a few mistakes along the way.
What’s so great about this video is that her tips on doing it are better than her actual demonstration, because she figured out what she could have done better. Despite that though her bangs they ended up looking remarkable.

How to ‘fix’ bad bangs
If you took the plunge and cut your bangs, there might be a chance that they aren’t quite up to par. If you find yourself in that position you are not alone and there are ways to fix ‘bad’ bangs, here are a few suggestions:
Hair clips – Hair clips can become your best friend when you have too short or messed up bangs. Simply slip a flat hair clip into the bangs, position the clip off to the side, holding the short bangs in place and you’re done. Hair clips are gorgeous, full of color and popular so they can make great accessories when trying to fix bang snafus.
Headbands and scarves – When you have bangs you aren’t quite feeling then a headband might just be in order. They are great for hiding bad bangs, and they come in all shapes and sizes. They can be as fashionable, casual or as glammed up as you want them.
Pompadour (Clip your bangs back) – Just twist your bangs back and clip into place on top of your head with a couple of bobby pins. You can just wear the hair back or you can clip the bangs into an updo.
A Sexy Side twist or braid – You can twist your bangs to the side and pin them to the rest of your hair or you can add them into a flat twist adding longer hair along the way. If you want something more dramatic you can french braid your bangs along the hairline.
A deep side part – Just part your hair far to one side and let your longer hair cover your bangs. You can also pin your bangs under the parted hair with some bobby pins.
The moral of the story is, hair grows, so if you feel you made a mistake don’t worry, your hair will be back before you know it. If you cut your own bangs and you are loving it, please share below, we would love to hear about your experience.
