Probably every woman, at some point in her life, has decided to take up the risk of getting bangs. Most of us have also chosen the trickiest path, cutting our own bangs at home.
DIY is not always the best idea when it comes to haircutting but, if you feel confident that you can handle this, then go for it!
Before starting cutting your bangs, you need to make sure that you are choosing the right style for your face shape and hair texture. When it comes to bangs, in fact, it is crucial that you know exactly how you like them or you will be stuck with a haircut you don’t like for a few months until your hairs grows back again.
To help you out, here are 5 of the best ways to style your bangs like a pro.
The best way to go if this is your first time cutting your hairs is to start from a side bang, which is less binding than a full, straight bang. Many celebrities go for this look, including the beautiful Emma Stone.
On the other hand, if you have already experimented with bangs in the past, then you can dare a bit more and get full bangs, like those famously styled by the actress Zooey Deschanel.
But things are never black or white; there is a variety of styles in between which will give you a wide choice to pick from.
They are very popular right now, we can see Zendaya Coleman rocking a messy hairstyle with bangs in the photo below.
The hardest bangs to style, yet the best ones, are sweeping bangs, which will make you look great keeping your hair out of the way. Penelope Cruz looks gorgeous with this haircut.
Finally, a style that not everyone dares to pull: short bangs. We all remember the beautiful Audrey Tautou in Amélie and her short bangs. Many celebrities have successfully tried this style, including Blindspot’s star Jaimie Alexander.
Last tips before cutting your own bangs
Make sure to wash your hair and dry it as you normally do. You want your bangs to be perfectly dry before starting to cut. The next step is to get rest of your hair out of the way, isolating the section you want to cut with the help of a thin comb and getting the rest of your hair in a ponytail. To cut your bangs you will need a pair of sharp scissors, even better if they are professional ones.
Once you have followed these simple steps and feel ready to start, then it’s time to cut your bangs!
