How to Cut Bangs

I decided one day that I was going to have to learn how to cut bangs.  It takes about 30 minutes for me to drive to the salon and it takes the stylist 1 minute to actually do the cutting.  It also costs $5 each time I need my bangs cut which is generally once every one or two weeks when I would make the trek to the salon.  I had a dilemma, I didn’t want to take the time to go to the salon any more and I didn’t want to pay the $5.

So, I called my neighbor, Dana, who is a professional hair stylist and she came to my rescue and taught me how to cut my bangs myself. It was really easy! I wish I would have known sooner!

I used this hair cutting kit from Conair but in a pinch you could use sewing scissors or even kitchen shears (as long as they are very sharp). My husband uses the rest of our Conair Kit to cut our 5 year old son’s hair. I think we’ve had it over 4 years now, so I think it’s worth the $15 we paid for it!

After you cut your bangs, you will need to round brush them (a wooden brush with natural fiber bristles is best).  I covet this one from, but I used one from Sally’s Beauty Supply that was 1 1/2 inches (the size of the wooden part, not the bristles).  Also, another hair tip I have is that I have the most amazing hairdryer.  My husband thinks I worship it and he’s probably right!  I take it on every vacation because I can’t stand using regular hair dryers anymore after having this for many years.  It’s hotter, quieter, faster (I can blow dry my thick hair in 3 minutes), and doesn’t blow as obnoxiously as other hair dryers.  As you can see in the video, it helped me to blow dry my bangs quickly and effectively.
