There are times when you won’t make it to the hairdressers.
If you have (or have ever had a fringe) you know how insanely annoying it can be to deal with the in-between, slightly grown out stage. It’s just that little bit too long hair that pokes you in the eyes and doesn’t blow-dry the way it did straight out of the salon. But the idea of trimming it yourself? Immediate visions of too-short, wonky bangs come to mind, right?
As long as you follow a few important rules, it’s incredibly easy and foolproof to trim your own fringe at home between salon visits. Here are some tips you can follow to maintain the fringe (or bangs) you had at the salon.
Chip away at it slowly.
Don’t give cutting a new fringe a go at home – or creating a whole new style out of an existing one. This is purely a minor tweak situation. Just trimming your fringe out of your eyes is fine, but anything more than that should be done by a professional. Have a point of reference.
But this is something you should definitely chat with your hairdresser about first because different fringe shapes require different trimming methods. Cut less than you really need to until you reach your desired length. You’ll less likely to cut too much off this way.
Have your hair in the style you normally wear it.
Don’t try trimming a fringe with wet hair. You’re way more likely to cut more off than you intended. Instead, dry it off so it’s exactly how you’d normally wear it – whether you blow dry it for volume or wear it dead straight. Then, go into trim.
Use the hairdressing scissors.
Unfortunately, those handy kitchen scissors aren’t gonna work. Regular scissors may cause split ends and also damage the ends of your hair, so pick up a pair of standard hairdressing scissors. You can find them at most hair retailers.
