Ah, bangs. When done right, bangs can transform your face, enhance your features, and make your haircut look a hundred times cooler. However, the honest truth is that they are pretty hard to maintain – a good set of bangs will require frequent salon trips, daily styling and generally, good up-keep. However, we’ve pulled together some easy tips to hopefully make it easier to take care of your fringes – read on to find out how to get the most out of your bangs.
Before we delve into anything else, let’s talk about maintenance – this is exceptionally important if you do not have bangs, but are thinking of getting them. It is vital that you get the full picture on how much effort you need to put in to maintain your fringes.
At the very least, schedule salon visits every six weeks for a professional bang trim. This might sound often but your bangs actually grow out alarmingly fast. Unless you enjoy having your bangs stabbing you in the eyes, regular trims are warranted – some even go for salon trims every one to two weeks.
Above all, do not attempt to cut your bangs on your own. If you really, really need to, avoid normal scissors at all cost – use salon scissors on dry hair, and always take off millimetres at a time because you can always cut more. Instead of cutting in a solid, straight line, twist your bangs, point the scissors upwards and chip into the ends to get a more natural, imprecise line.
