When it comes to haircare, cutting your own bangs is often considered a daring move, and understandably so. However, when it comes to wigs, it's an entirely different story. Learning how to cut bangs on your wig can be an empowering and convenient skill to have, without the worry of potential mishaps on your natural hair. While cutting your own bangs can be taboo, learning to cut bangs on your wig is an easy way to ensure no damage to your natural hair. Here's our step-by-step guide to cutting your own bangs on a wig.
The easiest way to ensure your bangs look exactly how you want is to put on your wig before you make your cuts. Place the wig on your head from back to front, and ensure it fits comfortably around your forehead. Secure the wig using the clips along the band so it stays in place.
Use a rattail comb to section off the hair you want to cut. If you want straight bangs, section off a rectangular piece of hair that is about 1 inch wide and 2 inches long. If you want side-swept bangs, section off a triangular piece of hair that starts at the center of your hairline and ends at the outer corner of your eyebrow.
Make small vertical snips rather than cutting your bangs straight across. While pinching the hair in between your fingers, hold the scissors in your dominant hand and make small, vertical snips into the hair. Continue cutting until you reach the desired length.
Once you've cut your bangs to the desired length, use a flat iron or curling iron to style them. If you want straight bangs, use a flat iron to smooth them out. If you want side-swept bangs, use a curling iron to curl them away from your face.
