How to Cut Wedge Haircut?

Step 1 Bangs Trim

Bangs trim

First, keep your hair at 50% wet, and divide your hair into two parts, front and back. The front part of the hair is used to trim the bangs. If you want the bangs to look fuller and to better decorate your forehead, you can choose to leave more hair in the front. The bangs will be trimmed in layers so that the end part of your hair looks like an inverted triangle.

Step 2 Clipper Trim the Innermost Hair

Now start working on the back half of your hair, leaving the longer hair at the top of the back of your head, splitting it into the left and right sides of your hair, and securing them with clips. Take out the clipper and start cutting the hair closest to the neck.

Because wedge haircut gives a very full feeling at the back of the head in the overall look, and this fullness comes not from the amount of hair but from the layers. This requires the inner hair to be cut shorter and then gradually extended to the outer layer.

Step 3 Cut Hair at 45°

Put down the hair left at the back of the head, take out the scissors, and trim the hair at a 45-degree angle. Take out a strand of hair, hold it between your index and middle fingers, and trim the root part of the hair with scissors. After trimming a part of the hair and taking out a comb, comb through this part of the hair to check if it is neat and beautiful.

After trimming, your hair will look round and full from the back. Please always remember that the essence of wedge haircut is at the back of the head, so make sure to trim it with more layers.

Step 4 Adjust Hair According to Bangs

After trimming the back part of the hair, we need to adjust and modify the hair with the front bangs, so that the two parts of the hair blend better.

Step 5 Blow Dry Hair and Trim

We cut the general shape of wedge haircut in wet condition, but the hair in wet condition and the dry condition are completely different. So blow dry your hair and trim it from the neck to make your hair look neater. Then use scissors to cut the back part of your head with more layers and a natural transition to the bangs.
