Professional hair scissors will alter your bang maintenance

June 21st, 2010

Generally, people who cut their hair at home (unprofessionally), they look in the mirror minutes later and have a “what the heck was I thinking” kind of moment.  Without the proper training and skill, it’s very easy to make your haircut worse, rather than better.  However, one thing amateurs CAN do at home is a little bit of bang maintenance.  Sometimes, your every-six-weeks haircut schedule doesn’t work so well for your bangs, and it’s worth it to learn how to take care of them yourself, at home.

The first, and most important, step is to invest in some high quality professional hair scissors.  I say “invest” because these are generally more expensive than your standard kitchen or office scissors, but are a long term value that will make a great difference in your bang maintenance efforts.  Professional hair shears are made from higher quality metal and are designed to snip hair, rather than bend over the blade, which can result in tearing or ripping (and a “what the heck was I thinking?” moment).

Start by dividing your DRY bangs into three separate sections.  Wet hair will fool you on the length of the hair, so dry bangs are key.  Take one section, twist it gently (one or two rotations) and snip the ends using your professional hair shears.  Don’t cut straight across, but rather vertically.  This will help prevent a blunt edge.  Repeat with the other two sections and comb or fluff your bangs and look for any stray strands that need to be trimmed.
