How to Cut Your Own Perfect Side Swept Bangs

Learn how to trim and cut your own bangs, save money, time, gas or bus tickets from visiting the salon never have to deal with bangs being too long or annoying.

Before your start I suggest you blow dry or straightening your hairs prior to cutting, so that you know what exactly where your bangs fall.

Let’s Start!

Comb your hairs crown are back as so and push back the rest of your hairs into a ponytail so it’s out of the way for now.

Now, comb your bangs in front of your face and with a pintail comb on the highest tip of your eyebrows line it up and evenly part your bangs.


This is where your bangs should start, now repeat to the other side. It doesn’t have to line up perfectly this is just a guide where your bang should start and end.Now, grab your hair in front and line the top part so it’s straight and even as well.

Now tie into a higher ponytail so that hairs we just sectioned off won’t fall back down the width should only be 1-2 inches. You could make your bangs bigger though it all depends upon your style.

Comb your bangs again, then grab it, flip it over and with your other hand keep it in place. Comb the bottom section out and now we are going to be cutting diagonally downwards with professional hair scissors start cutting gradually only half an inch of any downward motion to the ground.



Cutting your own hairs can sometimes be nerve-wracking, this is why you want to only cut off a little at a time.Repeat again, trimming very little at a time will save you from the nightmare of cutting your bangs too short. You also want to open and close the scissors constantly instead of one fast big cut little cuts are better.

Now let it go, and comb it our evenly, then divide in half and with the shorter section start cutting upwards gradually down to create texture so that your bangs won’t look too freshly cut and we’ll have some edge to it.


Next grab and comb all your bangs together and repeat only to the end cutting upwards. Take your time and be patient at it and I promise you won’t mess up.


You bangs should look like this, now from KCC iron, bump your bangs curving them in and bring them in place with sands-up or any hairspray

there you have it !
