Q:

What is the proper way to cut side swept bangs?

A:

Side swept bangs can be cut on dry hair while using the fingers placed diagonally on the bangs as a guide. Side swept bangs are often called a fringe because they fringe the top of the face and the hair.

It is important to always cut side swept bangs on dry hair. Cutting bangs on hair when it is wet will lead to shorter bangs because the hair tends to stretch more when it is wet. The fingers can be used as a guide and will create a more natural look than using a comb for a guide. The fingers should be placed diagonally on the section of hair that is going to be cut. Use scissors to cut the hair on the bottom of the finger to get the bang cut.

Many people cut their bangs too short the first time they cut them at home. In order to ensure that the bangs are not going to end up too short, it is advisable that the bangs be cut about 1/2 inch longer than the ideal length. This will give time to make sure that the bangs are long enough. More hair can be cut off after the initial cut if the bangs are too long.
