The Million Dollar Question: Do You Cut Your Own Bangs?

It’s happened to everyone — whether they sport a full fringe or a few side-swept strands — your bangs grow just a bit too long, and you there’s no time for an in-salon trim. The only option appears to be bobby pins and head bands, but Louise O’Connor, the Creative Director of OC61 Salon, promises there’s another choice.  Here are her tips for a quick DIY trim in your own bathroom.

The first rule, which is true when it comes to cutting just about anything, is to make sure you have good, sharp scissors (i.e. no nail scissors, no garden shears!).

If you have short, straight-across bangs, pull them down below the brow and grasp with your index and middle finger. Lift the hairs to a 40 degree angle away from your face and trim to just below the brow. Make sure you cut sparingly—you can always take more off. When you have the desired length, lift the bangs to a 90 degree angle and angle the scissors in towards your forehead and cut hair on an angle. This will add texture to the bangs and take the harsh straight edge off.
