How to Cut Your Own Bangs | Instagram Video

Master Cutting Your Bangs at Home With This 1 Easy Trick

I had bangs for the first decade or so of my life and promptly grew them out once I got to middle school. It wasn't just because I couldn't be trusted to wash them regularly (dry shampoo wasn't popular back then!), but it's also because fringe maintenance is far too rigorous.

If your hair grows quickly like mine does, you know the struggle: you have to visit the salon every two weeks just to make sure your vision isn't impaired . . . or you can take matters into your own hands. If you're not coordinated or skillful with a pair of scissors, your bangs can transform from a nice little accent in your strands to a living nightmare.

However, Instagram user kamilabravo demonstrated in a brief video on her feed that you don't need to feel terrorized by a quick trim. This method works best for face-framing fringe, but I could see it being effective on a more cropped style, too. Dampen your bangs, then tautly twist them. After taking your natural texture into account (remember, your strands will appear shorter once they've dried, but curly hair will shrink even more), snip away. You should be cutting your mane a few centimeters below where you want your bangs to hit. Then style as usual. You'll see a perfectly trimmed fringe that you achieved yourself with nearly zero effort.

Don't believe me? Watch the video yourself and prepare to be amazed. You may even feel inspired to get bangs again!
