Style your bangs
Style your bangs the way you usually do, making sure to apply any styling products you frequently use.
Section off hair
Section off the hair you do not want to cut by putting it in a ponytail, pinning or clipping it away, or tucking it behind your ears.
Comb your bangs down. Then, holding the scissors vertically, start making little snips using just the points of the scissors. Err on the side of caution: You can always cut more hair, but you can’t reattach what you’ve cut!
Hold down your bangs
If you need more control, hold your bangs down with one hand as you snip. Just keep in mind that the bangs will spring up a bit when you release your hand, so leave them slightly longer than your desired length.
Comb hair again
When you’re done, comb the bangs once more to shake loose any cut hairs.
Show off your handiwork!
