cutting my own hair?? - April 5th 2011, 04:48 AM



okay okay so i want my bangs to look like this when im finished, BUT i looked up tons of videos on how to cut my own bangs on youtube but im still scared to do it, i dont want to mess up because my hair isn't currently THAT long to begin with i cant really afford mistakes any tips or do you think i should stick with asking one of my friends who took cosmotology to do it for me??

thats what my bangs look like now and please excuse the ridiculous sign i made for my ex its the only recent picture i could find


The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

I tried cutting my hair a couple times and it ended very badly. In fact, it was my bangs that I was cutting. My opinion is that you should let one of your friends who took cosmetology to cut your bangs.

I always screwed up my own bangs. Thing is, it's harder to do on yourself because of angling and what not.
You have a better chance at someone else doing it. So, I suggest you get your friends to do it for you, like Kitty said.

Ah the joys of cutting hair. I've never gone to cosmetology school, but I cut and color my own hair and have for years. When cutting these types of bangs
Get some thinning/layering scissors (I prefer ones with the teeth closer--this makes it so it's less chunky and more the same length).
Cut an eighth of an inch at a time. Don't try to cut any more than that at a time. Start at whichever side you want the shorter part of your bangs to be and start cutting there and gradually make a diagonal line downwards. One thing I do to help myself is I split my bangs into two sections right down the middle of my face vertically. One of these sections will start about an inch above your eyebrow and go down to where your forehead meets your nose (this is the side with the shorter bangs). The next section will start where your forehead meets your nose and go down to the top of your ear on that side (this doesn't mean to literally cut all the hair over to your ear, but make it so that's the length of the longest part of your bangs. Once you get a basic shape, start pulling some pieces that are on the top of your bangs and make them a little shorter with your thinning scissors. Make sure that when you do this your hair is dry and styled like how you would usually style it.


"Love me for me, accept the fact I'm true, live like I want, fufill my dreams,
Dream of me, run out free, capture your words and never let them go."

I'll see you on the other side.

I agree with this, its what I do.
To add on, use a pomade to get that messy, choppy look. I recommend bedhead products:
