Bangs seem to always be coming back into style, but they require maintenance. With our busy lifestyle, it can be hard to find time to visit the salon. Is it okay to cut your bangs at home between appointments? We say yes, just keep these tips in mind before you take your scissors to your hand and end up looking like a 5-year-old cut your hair.

Use the Right Tools

Using kitchen scissors that you found in the back of your drawer isn’t going to cut it (*pun intended*). Invest in a pair of stylist scissors, a comb, some clips, and a blow dryer.

Only Cut Dry, Natural Hair

When you’re hair is wet, it’s longer. You don’t want to end up with bangs that are too short. Also if you wear your hair curly, cut it when it’s curly and if you wear your hair straight, cut it when it’s straight. This will help your bangs look most natural.

Be Cautious

Once you’ve cut too much, there’s no going back. You can always cut more, so just remember to take your time. Hair always grows back, so it’s not a huge deal if your bangs don’t turn out the way you expected them to.
