Welcome to my tutorial! The goal today is to take dull, drab hair and transform it with some sassy, flirty sidebangs. This super easy method takes all of five minutes, but here I’m going to break it down for you, along with some helpful side notes and other options.
Materials Needed: Comb, scissors, clips, mirror, some hair, flat iron/straightener (optional), water bottle (optional).
Preparation: Part your hair down the middle. If you are cutting it wet , make note of your natural texture. Curly hair should be cut longer than desired, otherwise you’re going to have itty bitty curlies right on your hairline. Wavy and straight hair is fine. If you are cutting it dry , flat iron the hair you’ll be cutting. Keep in mind that this will give you more precision, but your bangs may not look exactly the same when you wear your hair natural.
Just as a side note, my mannequin is the CLiC model named Courtney.
Step 1: Create a Triangular Part
It’s important not to make the triangle’s base too wide or too narrow. Your pupil is usually a good guide, but if you’re worried, take a little less hair. You can always cut more off later, but putting it back on costs major mula. Also, don’t make the triangle too tall. If you do you’ll be cutting into your hairstyle, resulting in some serious flyaways and frizzies.
Step 2: Brush Hair to the Opposite Side You Want Your Bangs to Fall
Wait, what? The opposite? Are you sure? Yes, I’m sure. If you want your bangs to go left, brush them right. If you want them to go right, brush them left. This will all make sense in the end, just trust me.
