we’re here with veronica for this week’s video and today, veronica is going to show you a quick tutorial on how to cut your own BANGS!
bangs are really popular right now, and veronica is going to show us how to do a medium length bang that blends into the sides of the hair.
SECTIONING the hair
first, veronica SECTIONS her hair. for this look you don’t want a super thick fringe, so it’s important not to go overboard and have too big of a section. this should be a very visual process, as the size of the section will be specific to the size and shape of the face they will be framing.
for this step, you want to pull all of the hair towards the center to OVERDIRECT the hair on the outsides. this will leave some nice length towards the sides of the hair.
with all of the outside strands overdirected toward the center, veronica begins to cut the bangs using a POINT CUTTING method.
BLENDING the lengths
with her bangs now at the desired length, veronica is going to blend it in with the rest of the hair. what’s great about this look is that you can wear the bangs as a center part, or swept to the side. it’s nice to have options.
as you can see, there’s a bit of difference in the lengths between the bangs and the sides.
this next step is a very visual process. with the scissors perpendicular to the hair, trim the extra length to create a nice, even transition so that the hair falls gently and gradually towards the length on the sides.
use the same method to blend the other side of the bangs to create a gradual transition.
it is very important to make each cut a visual process so that you aren’t just lopping off big chunks of hair. you want this to look as delicate and as natural as possible.
here you can see the smooth transition in length from the bangs all the way to the bottom of the strands.
you also want to make sure that the length of your side layers is even. the easiest way is to pull the sections together towards the center like the picture above to check if the lengths match up.
a final touch up and a bit of product, and this look will be complete.
veronica applies some nvenn ‘protect’ heat shield to create a thermal barrier to protect the hair from the damaging effects of heat. this is a very lightweight and non greasy formula so it won’t leave any gunky buildup in the hair.
next is a quick blow dry with a round brush. in one of our previous blogs, we demonstrated how to do a perfect blowout, and the method used here is fairly similar.
PRO TIP: we highly suggest going to a professional over cutting your own bangs. if you mess up, it’s a lot harder to fix and not always fixable.\
