Just a quick post to show you the blunt bangs I cut yesterday. I normally have longer side-swept bangs to soften my face, but I wanted a more structured, dramatic look to compliment a dress that I was going to wear to a wedding. Yes, I cut my hair to compliment an outfit. I do it all the time. Turns out I ended up cutting my bangs but not wearing the dress. So it looks like I will be channeling my inner Zooey Deschanel this fall season.
DIY: After blow drying, I held flat sections in my left hand (in between my middle and index fingers) and cut across (below my fingers) with my right hand using a pair of sharp scissors, making sure that the bangs would fall just below my eyebrows. I then took random little tiny upward nips so it wouldn’t be too straight. I suggest cutting little by little until you reach your desired length because there is nothing worse than cutting your bangs way too short. To style, I take a giant round brush and blow dry them straight up to add volume. Then I just comb them down and spray with hairspray. If I flat iron my hair like I did in the picture, I turn the flat iron heat down to 275 degrees and quickly iron them in small sections. These are high maintenance bangs (at least on me they are) because my hair likes to curl in all the wrong places. I MUST spray them in place before heading out the door. They are fun though, and it is an inexpensive way to change up your look. Have a great week everyone!
