how to razor cut your own sidebangs

Last night I decided to cut my own sidebangs (my bangs were originally sidebangs but they'd hit that awkward, too-long, Bieber-y stage where I found myself sweeping them way too sweepily across my forehead, or pinning them, or tucking them instead of... I don't know what, rustling them? Whatever.

When I came out of the "salon" (aka bathroom) last night I said to Rob, "How do you like my bangs?" and he was all, "Nicely done and wow and you are full of bravery for cutting your own bangs!" and I was all, "Hey, thanks." ps. I have cut my own bangs tens of times over the past decade but Rob's a guy and guys are classic when it comes to noticing things, ayup.

Anyways, cutting your own sidebangs is pretty easy and I thought I'd share the trick with you all. I should first note that I have pretty thick, semi-wavy hair and I think that if you have super-fine, ultra-straight hair you should probably consult a hair expert before trying this -- just about your kind of hair and sidebangs in general -- they might tell you that for your hair type, sidebangs aren't the best idea you ever had. In other words, this is easy and it works great but enter at your own risk.

You'll need scissors and a basic leg razor. Afterwards, replace the blade (your legs will thank you).

Step One...

Step one is just to get rid of the excess, you'll tidy after. Here, you are going to take your scissors and cut your bangs (just the hair you want to end up as bangs) as straight across as you can, without worrying about perfection, at the length that you want your longest sidebangs to end up.

Step Two...

Step two is the fun part. First, visualize how short you want the shortest part of your bangs to end up. If you're not sure, then start out conservatively, you can always take them up a little. You may want to get your bangs slightly damp (but not wet). Ok, now grasp a little section of your bangs, about the thickness of a piece of yarn, in your fingers and twist that section. Once twisted, take your razor and "shave" down, through the hair rope, at the angle you want your bangs to be at for framing your face. This creates a wispy, layered effect super quickly. Do this step again and again as you move across your forehead until you've got your bangs at the perfect slope. Tidy little straggler hairs with the razor as you go. Lastly, do just the tips of the longer sections to soften and layer them.

Step Three..

You're done! You look amazing! I'm wolf whistling at you through your computer.

Let me know if you have questions, xo.

I'm curious to find out what blog platform you're using?
I'm experiencing some small security issues with my latest website and I'd like to find something more safe.
Do you have any solutions?
