I’ve seen some moms struggling to get straight lines when cutting their babies or toddler’s bangs. Often they give up and go to the salon.
I’m all about easy, cheap and getting good results. So I’ll share this fabulous trick to get the perfect face-framing bangs, every time. I used to use this technique on my own bangs, and now it saves us a lot of time, money and hassle.
Step 1: Pull the hair you don’t want to cut back into a ponytail, or secure with a headband. The remaining hairline should be an approximate semicircle, from ear to ear.
Step 2: Pinch the bangs into a point at the center of the forehead, between the eyebrows.
Step 3: Cut the bangs. They will be arranged in a small circular clump, like a bouquet of flowers.
Voila! Release, brush forward and take a keepsake photo. Seriously, it’s that easy.
