How to Trim Your Bangs At Home

*Disclaimer: I am not a professional hair stylist. This is simply what I do at home in between trips to the salon.

I was always afraid to cut my hair as I had deep fears I would seriously ruin it then have to wait for it to grow back in. However, having bangs means a lot of maintenance. Within a few short weeks they're covering my eyes and I don't always have time to run to the salon. So I've faced my fear and found an easy way to give them a quick trim.
There are several YouTube tutorials but wouldn't you rather take advice from a professional hair stylist?

As you can see I desperately needed a trim


- Make sure you part correctly. Make sure all the hair you've pulled to the front is the hair you want to cut. I use a comb to ensure a straight line.
- Pull that hair forward (second pic). You should probably pull the rest of your hair in a ponytail to avoid snipping the wrong hair but if not, at least pull it forward with your fingers.
- Start in small sections. Don't cut off a dramatic amount because it maybe hard to even out later. Just do a small piece at a time to ensure you don't look like Hannah from Girls this season.
- Use your finger to follow a straight line. Let your finger provide a guy to follow along as you cut.

My bangs/hair crush is definitely Zooey Deschanel. I was channeling her in my above pic (lol). I love seeing her cute hairstyles on her hilarious show New Girl.

Would you trim your own bangs? What advice would you add?


  1. so cute! love the shirt as well

  2. I trim mine every two weeks! :) I figured I had to learn because there's no way I'd go to the salon that often to get it done!

  3. I think I need to learn to trim mine. I've gone for a fringe trim at hairdressers and always get talked into an actual haircut, then they cut off more than I wanted. It's always a disaster. I'll definitely be using these tips.

    1. Ugh I hate that. I always say a trim because I hate cutting too much off :x

  4. I trim my own bangs all the time! My advice is a good pair of scissors and patience! Doing a few strands at a time to ensure even layers. And if you screw it up, swooping the bangs ALWAYS works!

    1. Definitely patience! lol definitely or braiding them to the side


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
