When I was in middle school, bangs were all the rave. So, naturally, I begged my mom to take me to a salon to get this trendy 'do. She took me to a salon the first time, but insisted on cutting my bangs herself every time after that. And, even though my mom wasn't hairstylist, she always knew exactly how to make my bangs look good and kept a notepad to the side filled with hacks for cutting your own bangs and hair.
To be honest, I haven't had bangs since my middle school days. I really liked my bangs, but my style changed over the years and that wasn't part of the evolution. However, now that I'm well in my 20s, I've considered bringing them back into my current hairstyles. Although I probably won't cut them myself the first time around, I'll definitely be taking a page from my mom's book of keeping my own notebook with hacks so that I can keep up the style while saving money on salon visits.
Whether you're looking to refresh your bangs or recreate your seventh grade yearbook photo, these bang cutting hacks will help you get it as close to perfect as possible.
