I cut my own hair all the time, and have never heard of this before. My curiosity is definitely piqued, and I can't wait to try this the next time I need a trim.

i've not had a haircut for well over a year. i just grab them and snip away! when they've grown a bit i'm definitely trying this.

argh my fringe keeps going back to the side cos I used to have a side fringe. so even after i cut my bangs they dont behave :/

my salon (g squared in soma, SF) offers free bang trims if you are a previous client, but that is always a great tip for DIY! Nicely done!

WOW! I just laid hands on my bangs yesterday and now they look like a rat nibbled them for me. Will try your trick as soon as they are longer again!!!! Thanks for this!

omg this is GREAT! i have curly hair do you think ill work on me?!
Tali on July 08
hey! I have curly hair as well. This works fine, just make sure your hair is dry and straightened, makes sense since you'd prob wear your bangs straight anyway. just dont do it on wet'll come out shorter than you want :/
CoedUgly on July 07
bangs for curly hair is always questionable. you should talk to your stylist first!
Aliceinwonderland on July 07
Brilliant idea. I'm going travelling for a month so this will definitely come in handy!

Haha, yesterday I was just wondering whether to cut my bangs on my own... today everyone is recommending how :) BTW I did cut them - saved some bucks and nerves to wait for an appointment!
adelejoanna on July 07
