Whether you are working with a wig or your own natural hair, everyone wants a unique style that fits your personality and look. One of the best benefits of purchasing and wearing a human hair wig is the styling options that a human hair wig can help you achieve. But sometimes even a synthetic wig could use a little sprucing up. Here’s our quick wig styling tutorial on cutting bangs.
Before You Start
To get ready for your new look, have the following tools ready to go: a wig head or stand, pins, wide tooth wig comb, alligator clips, and hair shears. Start with the wig on the wig stand and make sure it is securely attached (with the pins). You don’t want the wig to slip out of place mid-cut! Then look and measure your own head and where you want the bangs to fall. Measure and mark the same distance on the wig head. It’s always a good idea to cut bangs just a bit longer than you’d like the first time so that there is extra hair to trim, if needed. Separate the hair that you want to cut into bangs from the rest of the hair on the wig using the clips.
Trim Down the Style
You’re ready to start trimming! Comb the soon-to-be-bangs to the center of the wig head above where your nose would be. Using your fingers as a level, hold the hair in place and cut slowly underneath your fingers with the hair shears. Cut slowly and straight under your fingers to keep cuts sharp rather than jagged. If you’d like a more natural look, go back along the bang line holding the shears at a 60-degree angle and make small snips in an upwards motion to soften the straight, hard edge. Voila! You now have bangs!
