Long side swept bangs – Razor

To cut this hairstyle, I highly recommend that you should use a razor. Well, you may think it’s a little scary and I do not deny this fact. However, the efficiency you can gain is greater compared to scissors.

Front bangs – Scissors

With this hairstyle, you need to cut straight across and trim. Therefore, scissors are the most appropriate tool for you to utilize. 

You should remember that you need scissors haircutting. Please do not use a scissors kitchen or scissors office. It’s not fun to use it. You can go somewhere such as a store to find them or you can order them online.

Baby bangs

For baby gangs, Oh my god, you must use clippers. They are incredibly amazing for you to make straight lines, especially when you get short hair with your gangs. In this situation, clippers are more beneficial and can help you sort out some annoying problems. It helps you cut your hair easily because to cut baby gangs, it is difficult to do it with scissors. 

On top of that, there are some optional items you can use:

  • A spray bottle
  • Metal clips
  • A blow dryer
  • A round brush

Step 2: Take the tiny section in the center, basically, on the top of your nose.

Step 3: The next task is to cut this part. But you should remember that it is not advisable to pull the hair down straight. It is because it causes tension and the hair will bounce back up a lot after you cut it. You should not cut straight across horizontally but a little bit vertically. Make the line not too straight, it will give you a little room for error.
